Free Yourself of Unwanted Hair With IPL Laser Treatment

Now that spring has sprung many of us are looking forward to the forthcoming summer and are preparing our body for bikini season. Looking toned and fit on our summer holiday is of course a huge element of feeling your best during the summer, but you should never underestimate the power of silky smooth legs. Dealing with unwanted body hair is a burden that many women have to endure; constant shaving and waxing is well and truly embedded into our routine at this time of year. However, it doesn’t have to be this way, thanks to IPL laser treatment your unwanted body hair can be a thing of the past.

Laser hair removal treatment can provide patients with a long term solution to their unwanted body hair. IPL laser treatment works by penetrating the hairs with various wavelengths of laser light in order to break-down the hair. IPL laser hair removal depends on the pigmentations present within the hair follicle in order to destroy the hair, so naturally IPL works best on those with darker hair. Patients with red or dark blonde hair might not gain the same level of results as a result, but a consultation will determine this.

IPL laser hair removal treatment doesn’t cause any pain but some patients do experience a slight stinging sensation during treatment that can course mild discomfort. This is an element that patients should also consider when weighing up the pro and cons of treatment. There is a wealth of benefits that come with the treatment. For example, IPL laser treatment gives patients a long term solution to unwanted hair and leaves patients able to live their lives care-free without the fear of their prickly legs showing on the beach. Laser treatment is also quick and convenient, so much so that the treatment can be sat in your lunch hour and patients can return to work immediately with no effect of the patient’s productivity throughout the rest of the day.

IPL laser hair removal does come with some possible risks and side-effects, although these are minor in the case of laser hair removal treatment they should still me carefully considered by anyone considering undergoing treatment. Risks involved with IPL laser treatment include slight swelling or redness in site of treatment, as well as the chance of loss in pigmentation or change in skin texture within the site of application. These risks are rare to experience but should still be factored into anyone’s decision making process when considering undergoing IPL laser treatment.

Dr. Alice Hudson-Peacock from Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic – which covers Kent, Dover and Faversham – had this to say about IPL laser treatment.

IPL laser hair removal is the perfect cosmetic treatment for the run up to the summer, the treatment can give patients way to say goodbye to their unwanted body hair long term. Patients undergoing IPL laser hair removal treatment are advised to stop shaving or waxing 2-3 weeks prior to sitting the treatment in order to grow the 1mm hair length needed in order for the laser to penetrate the hair follicle and provide a long term solution to the unwanted hair.”
