What is IPL Hair Removal?
Medical grade IPL Hair Removal, also known as Intense Pulsed Light, is one of the most common way to remove unwanted hair permanently. This procedure of hair removal is common in Singapore, and it is becoming popular to reduce irritation and other side effects of shaving.
How Does IPL Remove Hair Permanently?
The light is applied to the skin and it targets melanin which are any dark pigments beneath the skin. The IPL light is absorbed by the pigmented hair roots which causes it to be heated and destroyed. Any other pigments surrounding the hair follicle will also be treated, hence it is common for the skin to appear brighter after treatment.

How Many IPL Hair Removal Treatments Do I Need To See Results?
Each hair follicle has a growth cycle with different phases. We continuously have active hair follicles while some remain dormant. During IPL Hair Removal treatment, only active hair follicles are effectively target. Hence, for permanent hair removal, few sessions are required to eventually target all the hair follicles and achieve optimal results.
After completing a few sessions of permanent hair removal, hair follicles will look noticeably finer. With sequential treatment, hair regrowth will be reduced significantly and you can enjoy smoother and cleaner looking skin.
