The Ultimate Guide to your First IPL Hair Removal Treatment
Updated: Jun 1
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hair removal treatment is a popular method for getting rid of unwanted body hair. If you are considering this treatment for the first time, there are a few things you should know and follow. In this article, we will guide you through the process, so you can make an informed decision and get the best possible results.
Do some research before you go
Before booking an appointment, it is important to do some research about the clinic and the aesthetician who will perform the procedure. Look for reviews and feedback from past clients to get a sense of their experience. Check if the clinic is licensed and has all the necessary equipment for IPL treatment. This may give you a sense of relief during and after your session.
Avoid Sun Exposure
Sun exposure can affect the effectiveness of the treatment and may cause skin damage. Avoid sun exposure for at least 4 weeks prior to your appointment. If you have a sunburn or tan, reschedule your appointment.
Avoid Other Hair Removal Methods
Avoid waxing, plucking, and electrolysis at least 4 weeks prior to your appointment. These methods remove hair from the roots, which IPL targets to remove hair permanently. If there are no hairs to target, the treatment will not be effective.
After the treatment, you should avoid sun exposure, saunas, intense exercises, and hot showers, (which will cause you to sweat), for at least 24 hours. Apply a soothing cream to the treated area to reduce any redness or discomfort. Also, avoid using any skincare products that contain retinoids, AHAs, BHAs, or vitamin C for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
IPL treatment is a gradual process, and you may not see the results immediately. The hair will gradually fall out over several weeks, and you may need to wait for the next session to see more significant changes.
IPL treatment can be an effective and long-lasting solution for hair removal. However, it's important to research, prepare, and follow the guidelines to get the best possible results. With patience and proper care, you can enjoy smooth and hair-free skin.
