Intense Pulse Light IPL treatment works in a similar way to Laser hair removal. Light energy in the form of an intense pulse of light is applied to the area of the skin to be treated. This light reacts with the hair follicles in the skin that contains melanin.
Melanin is the substance that gives our hair and skin its colour. This light energy is converted into heat which destroys the follicle preventing the hair from growing back. The hair treated normally falls out within a week or two resulting in permanent hair reduction. The advancement in modern machines has been their ability to heat only the hair follicles and not the skin. This is clearly more difficult in darker skin which contains higher concentrations of melanin.
