Is Skin Type an Issue?

Intense Pulsed Light treat­ments are good for many skin types, but there are two skin types that do not work well with IPL: dark brown skin and black skin. In addi­tion to par­tic­u­lar skin types not match­ing up well with IPL, there are a few shades of hair that won’t work well with Intense Pulsed Light treat­ments. Those shades are as fol­lows: white, grey, red, and light blonde. This is due to the fact that the IPL works with the pig­ment in hair color. In order to bet­ter under­stand skin types and whether or not a par­tic­u­lar type is suit­able for IPL treat­ments, be sure to do more research.

Are there Blem­ishes, Rosacea, Sun Dam­age, or Wrinkles?

Intense Pulsed Light treat­ments can aid in the over­com­ing of sev­eral dis­con­cert­ing skin prob­lems. Blem­ishes, Rosacea, sun dam­age, wrin­kles, age spots, and vas­cu­lar lesions are a few of the things with which IPL can assist. These skin issues can cause a lot of stress for peo­ple, and hav­ing an option for sur­pass­ing these unwanted prob­lems can be quite a relief.

In addi­tion to Intense Pulsed Light treat­ments being a won­der­ful solu­tion, results are much longer last­ing than using creams or cover-up makeup, which only really mask the prob­lems. Makeup is also filled with hun­dreds of toxic chem­i­cals, whereas IPL is safe, non-invasive, gen­tle, and chemical-free.

Is There Unwanted Hair?

Is there any­one who doesn’t have unwanted hair some­where on their body? Peo­ple go through the trou­ble of cov­er­ing up their unwanted hair, shav­ing it daily to hope­fully reduce its appear­ance, and wax­ing it method­i­cally until sup­pos­edly it becomes softer and finer. The real­ity is that peo­ple have unwanted hair, and they just haven’t fig­ured out a way to remove it that is really effective.

At-home hair removal by using an Intense Pulsed Light sys­tem is by far the best alter­na­tive to going to a costly salon. IPL treat­ments from the com­fort of a home envi­ron­ment are a way bet­ter idea than painful wax jobs or spend­ing way too much time try­ing to shave all that hair off. It makes sense to use IPL because it ends up cost­ing less in the long haul. Also, IPL can save peo­ple lots of time, and it can save the planet too; just think of all the waste shav­ing prod­ucts pro­duce and car­bon emis­sions from com­mut­ing to the salon that’s halfway across the city!

Intense Pulsed Light treat­ments aren’t for every­one, but they are for a large num­ber of peo­ple who are look­ing to improve the appear­ance of their skin in a safe, afford­able, and non-invasive way. At-home IPL treat­ments go beyond the salon experience.
