Getting Rid of Pain: How Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal Is More Comfortable

Intense Pulsed Light treat­ments can take the pain out of hair removal. While this is great, they can also offer per­ma­nent results, and they can be the solu­tion for peo­ple who are look­ing for a com­fort­able and eco­nom­i­cal way to remove their hair from home.

It’s Done in a Com­fort­able Home Environment

For a lot of peo­ple, going to a salon to have their bikini-line hair removed is not the most com­fort­able expe­ri­ence. Firstly, there is the need for a per­son to leave home and make the com­mute to the appoint­ment: rain or shine, traf­fic or not. Addi­tion­ally, the hair removal expe­ri­ence itself can be daunt­ing: sit­ting or lying in an uncom­fort­able posi­tion while a stranger removes unwanted hair from some of the most pri­vate and sen­si­tive areas of the body? No, thank you!

To top it off, this is an expe­ri­ence that peo­ple pay big bucks to receive. Intense Pulsed Light, on the other hand, is designed to be accom­plished in the com­forts of a home envi­ron­ment. Strangers need not attend this party. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treat­ments can be done on the sofa, on the bed, or in any room in the house, (but it’s not a good idea to do it in the shower, of course). The com­fort level can there­fore be con­trolled by the indi­vid­ual, and no per­sonal bound­aries need to be crossed.

There Are No Wax Strips to Rip Off and No Shav­ing Cuts to Endure

Wax­ing can be accom­plished at home or at a salon, but the same thing is true in both sit­u­a­tions — it’s uncom­fort­able to have hair ripped out of sen­si­tive skin. Peo­ple tend to become accus­tomed to the painful pro­ce­dure of wax­ing at some time or another, although pain is not some­thing peo­ple need to go through any longer with the avail­abil­ity of at-home Intense Pulsed Light treatments.

Shav­ing can also be dam­ag­ing to the skin’s appear­ance because of the poten­tial of nicks, cuts, and long-lasting scars from shav­ing gone wrong. Even pro­fes­sional bar­bers can slip up when they’re shav­ing, and it’s no fun when that hap­pens. With Intense Pulsed Light, peo­ple no longer need to be con­cerned with the thought of nick­ing or acci­den­tally cut­ting the skin wide open.

Pock­et­book Pain: The Expen­di­ture Might not be Worth it

It’s expen­sive to go to the salon for hair removal. The cost of com­mut­ing, the cost of the pro­ce­dure, and the cost of the gra­tu­ities can really add up. Wax­ing and shav­ing at home saves a per­son some money ini­tially, but the cost of razors, replace­ment car­tridges, shav­ing creams, wax strips, and after­shave sup­plies tal­lies up to be a for­tune in the long run. With Intense Pulsed Light treat­ments at home, the hair removal is per­ma­nent. There is the ini­tial cost of pur­chas­ing a high qual­ity at-home machine, and then that’s it. There is no need to con­tin­u­ally add “shav­ing cream” to a shop­ping list or con­stantly be run­ning out of the home for new razors.

Intense Pulsed Light treat­ments are designed to be more com­fort­able than the tra­di­tional modes of hair removal, and they’re meant to be pain­less. Weigh out the costs to see that the per­ma­nent results offered by IPL treat­ments are well worth the ini­tial cost.
