Efficient and durable*
A big advantage of IPL technology is the fact that quite large areas can be treated. This saves time and money. The removal of hair with light is painless and gentle to the skin. A treatment of several or more parts of the body is possible. The treatments themselves do not take much time and can be integrated into everyday life.
Hair and skin types
Basically anyone can be treated with IPL. It should be noted, however, that the method reaches its limits with very light hair. This is related to the fact that, for example, white hair has no color pigments, that is no melanin. The light pulse can not be transported to the root in this case and it remains intact. In such cases, however, other photoepilation techniques are available that are similar in concept to the IPL technique.
Also, the removal of reddish hair is difficult. This is because red hair contains the substance phaemelanin. This absorbs the light worse than it is the case with dark hair.
