Hair removal. Nobody enjoys it, even those who wax, pluck or shave their body hair regularly. We’ve all wished for a permanent hair removal method so that we may never have to do it again! A permanent hair removal method is laser hair-removal, but it is expensive and time consuming.
Now if only there was a way to permanently remove hair at home.
Well, there is!
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology uses focused light of a wavelength specifically calibrated to target specific structures, such as those of your hair follicles. The light deactivates these follicles and prevents treated hair from growing back.
Intense pulsed light technology has evolved significantly since its introduction to the medical community 20 years ago. Today, these devices are safe to use by most people, and they also find applications in the removal and cosmetic treatment of many vascular lesions, and pigmented lesions. Newer technologies are often able to give results equal to those of laser treatments.
Some devices have been developed for use in salons, and now in homes. You can now get long lasting results by yourself, for a fraction of the price that you would pay to have treatments done at your salon. Just buy the Veet Infini’silk Pro, which starts showing results after just five or six treatments. You can permanently reduce hair growth by around 54%!
How to use it
First, decide whether you’re sure you want to permanently remove hair. There’s no going back later! Second, do read the usage and care instructions provided in the kit before you start.
- Start by shaving or using a depilatory cream on the area to ensure that the light pulses reach all the follicles. Waxing or plucking isn’t suitable – the root must be present for the IPL to work.
- Power up the device, and start with the lowest setting. You can increase the setting later, when you find the one that works best. Press the device against the area of hair removal, pull the trigger.
- The device reads the colour of your skin to determine whether it’s safe to start the treatment, and then flashes a pulse of intense light right down your hair follicles.
- Move the device to another area, and repeat.
As Easy as That
In just about three months, you can see the benefits of permanent hair removal using IPL. You no longer have to feel that you are doomed to a lifetime of waxing, shaving and depilating. Permanent hair reduction at home is now just a device away!
