Silky Smooth Body: Simple Tips For Hair Removal
So, you really think facial hair is bad? Well, wait until your body hair starts to grow out of control. Everyone has at least a little bit of it on their legs. While body hair is expected and natural, it may be excessive and make you look like you are wearing a hairy body-suit, and that is as good a reason as any to seek out options for hair removal. There are many ways to maintain your body and your legs and keep them looking beautiful, from using simple hair removal to more advanced procedures like IPL hair removal.
Use IPL Hair Removal
IPL works on the same principle as laser. Light energy is absorbed by areas with hair, which are heated up. The latter consequently damages the follicle, rendering the growth of hair slow and preventing it from growing completely. IPL hair removal, however, uses a device with broad-spectrum visible light, making it a much more effective procedure than laser.
How Does IPL Work?
If laser uses the ability to heat hairs, IPL focuses on using more specific properties that the former possesses. For starters, it can be controlled to the extent of focusing it into a smaller area and letting it travel a large distance without spreading out like what a normal light would do. Also, it produces beams that only contain a single color of light. These characteristics of IPL hair removal make it a much more beneficial procedure than laser.
Benefits of IPL:
Since IPL uses broad-spectrum light which naturally spreads out, its coverage is greater and the treatment becomes a lot quicker. More importantly, it is considered cheaper than laser hair removal, though you will have to undergo a couple more sessions just to achieve the desired result. Interestingly, IPL can be used in different ways. For instance, it can be used to treat a wide variety of different skin conditions. It can even be altered in a way that it matches a specific skin and/or hair type. One great example of this is none other than the variation of IPL called VPL (Variable Pulsed Light). VPL is designed to enable the user to have the ability to modify the settings of the light pulses, allowing him/her to best suit the procedure to his/her skin and hair.
At some point during your treatment, you may see or feel a bit of skin irritation. This can be in the form of itchiness, redness, or swelling, however, these symptoms are typically short-lived and don’t last more than a day.
