Viss Hair Removal For Underarms Blog Pic

Although under­arm hair is com­mon it can be eas­ily treated. This is not some­thing to be embar­rassed about, but it can be viewed as an unde­sir­able char­ac­ter­is­tic for women in today’s soci­ety. There are var­i­ous meth­ods to remove hair from your under­arms. These include:

  • Wax­ing; although this can lead to ingrown hair and red skin rashes that burn.
  • Shav­ing; although this can also cause rashes and bumps as well as dry, itchy skin.
  • Hair removal creams; although these tend not to achieve the same level of success.
  • Laser hair removal; a faster, more con­ve­nient method but one that can be rel­a­tively expensive.

Another method for remov­ing hair from your under­arms is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) which we are going to dis­cuss in more detail below.

What is IPL?

IPL is a method whereby pulsed light is used to selec­tively tar­get hair fol­li­cles below your under­arms. The light is con­verted to heat that destroys the hair and dis­ables the cells respon­si­ble for new hair growth. You can receive the treat­ment at a pri­vate clinic or there are less costly home treat­ment kits. IPL can also be used to remove hair from other body areas includ­ing the face, chin and neck, legs and bikini line, arms, shoul­ders and back.

IPL under­arm hair removal

If you buy an IPL home hair removal kit you will need to apply a small hand held device to your skin, which will release flashes of light to tar­get the hair fol­li­cles. A cool­ing gel or spray may also be applied. The pro­ce­dure does not cause any pain.

What are the benefits?

  • Selec­tively tar­gets hair follicles
  • Fast treat­ment process
  • Long-lasting results
  • Pain­less procedure

For best results

In order to achieve the most effec­tive results when using IPL treat­ment to remove hair from your under­arms, you must fol­low the spe­cific instruc­tions pro­vided with the home kit that you buy. This will include infor­ma­tion on how to prop­erty use the kit, how many weeks to wait between each ses­sion, and other impor­tant safety tips. By not fol­low­ing these instruc­tions you can cause skin damage.
