IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It uses broadband light pulses consisting of a range of wavelengths (500-1200nm), compared to laser which uses single wavelength.
Before IPL, shaving is recommended but avoid waxing or plucking of hair. IPL requires the hair root to be intact for the treatment to be effective.
IPL is non-invasive and has no downtime. You can resume daily activities and exercise after the treatment.
For rejuvenation, we recommend once a month. For hair removal, it generally needs 3-5 sessions depending on hair types. This is because our body hairs go through hair cycle consisting of growing phase, resting phase and intermediate phase. IPL/SHR target hairs at the growing phase but less effective on the other phases of hair.
