IPL Hair Removal Technique – A Simplistic Overview
IPL hair removal technique has been regarded by the experts as a more effective method than the Laser hair removal technique. Full form of IPL is Intense Pulse Light. This light is targeted to the hair follicles at such a wavelength that it gets absorbed by the hair follicles. This Intense Pulse Light is pulsed for a fraction of a second, which is timed to such a perfect that only the targeted hair follicle gets disrupted.

The pigment that gives colour to the hair absorbs this Intense Pulse Light and converts the energy to heat, which ultimately damages the concerned follicle.

This should be noted here that there is no beauty salon or clinic that can guarantee a hundred percent permanent hair removal. However, eighty to ninety percent effectiveness of these hair removal treatments is ensured by IPL hair removal treatments.
