What Is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)?

Intense pulsed light is a permanent hair removing process that uses a range of different frequencies of white light to destroy the sacs or follicles from which the hair originate. For different parts of the body different filters are used while passing the light through the skin.

Intense pulsed light is passed through some fiber-optic tubes on the skin in quick successions for about a fraction of a second. This way the skin heats and cools down quickly but the hair takes time to heat up and cool down. Eventually after 5 to 6 pulses of intense heat the hair is destroyed. A cooling gel is applied on the skin to soothe it.
The darker the hair color the more time it takes to get damaged, because the melanin is more concentrated. More melanin means sustaining more absorption of heat. Also, the thickness of the hair, the sensitivity of the skin, and the color tone of it all matters.
Not all hair grows at the same time, while some could be originating, other hair could be in some other stage. Depending upon these factors, the number of sessions of intense pulsed light is planned with enough time period to let the hair grow and mature completely
