A laser treatment for both removing hair and treating skin conditions is the IPL laser hair removal system. The IPL is not a typical laser hair remover. A hand-operated unit is able to cover areas much larger than the smaller laser devices. The wand issues many pluses of laser light, in fast, effective, and short bursts. Because the head of the device is larger, it does not take a long to treat an area. The benefits are removing hair as well as taking care of different ailments with the skin. The IPL is generally more cost effective to the patient than traditional laser treatments.
Hair removal is a popular treatment for people wanting to get rid of unwanted hair. The IPL is a devise that will “spray” laser light over an area of skin that contains the unwanted hair, and works by targeting the follicles or hair roots. The light converts into heat energy by the time it reaches the hair follicles. This heat energy is what destroys the follicles, and stops the hair from growing back. It can take several visits with the IPL laser as it effectively destroys the hair follicles. Even before the destruction of the hair follicle, the IPL may reduce the growth of the hair in between visits.
The IPL laser hair removal system is safe to use on almost all areas of the body. This cost effective treatment works well and therefore people choose the IPL over traditional laser light. As mentioned above, the IPL can effectively treat certain skin conditions like acne, discolorations, sun damage, broken capillaries, and birthmarks. The IPL can target these skin issues and help to lighten the darkened areas. Because the laser light tends to flow to the darkest part of the skin, the treatment works well. A professional doctor or technician will know how best to focus on the areas to lighten.
The ILP laser hair removal device can stimulate collagen production. The light impulses strike the skin’s fibroblasts and this increases collagen production. Collagen is a well-known anti-aging substance. Younger skin has more of this and it is what gives skin a youthful appearance. Older skin does not produce as much and the results are wrinkles. Physicians have found that a treatment by the IPL laser helps the skin to plump up from the increased production of collagen. Many patients seek their physician’s advice on this procedure to help them bring back their lost youthful appearance.
The effect is beautiful youthful skin after the IPL laser hair removal device has passed over. Clients and patients are hearing of this break-through technology and are requesting this from the skin technicians more and more today. It is so easy and almost painless to remove hair and treat skin conditions with the IPL. The drawback to this technology is that it does target darker pigments in the skin. This does not work as well for a very fair complected individual because of the lack of darker pigments, in the hair follicles and on the skin.
