Ladies, do you remember when you were a tween or teenager, and you begged your mom to let you start shaving your legs? Or that moment when you first noticed that you’d begun to grow underarm hair? Back then, it was somewhat exciting (and maybe a little bit scary!) to shave.
Fast-forward to the present day, though, and you probably are sick and tired of the whole rigmarole. Buying shaving cream and razors, trying not to nick yourself while standing on one leg in a slippery shower. Or trying those awful cream depilatories that stink up the whole house. Not to mention the fact that even when you do manage to get your legs nice and smooth, they don’t stay that way for very long. There is a way to get a smooth, hair-free body, however — and it doesn’t cost an arm(pit) and a leg, either!
What Is IPL Hair Removal, and How Does It Work?
IPL is a method hair removal method that is becoming more and more popular. It stands for “intense pulsed light.” It is used for a number of dermatological purposes. Hair removal is just one of them. IPL hair removal works by targeting the pigment of a hair follicle. The pigment absorbs the heat emitted by the light, killing the hair’s living cells. A small, handheld device that skims over the skin, giving off pulses of light, forms the basis of the procedure.
Does IPL Hurt?
We knew you’d ask that! And happily, the answer is no. If you’ve ever tried waxing, you know that it can cause some discomfort. (And by “some,” we mean “a lot”!) That isn’t the case with IPL hair removal. In fact, many women find the procedure relaxing.
Who Is a Good Candidate for IPL?
Anyone can receive this treatment and get good results, but the ideal candidate is someone who has relatively pale skin and dark hair. Of course, these women tend to be the ones who most benefit from hair removal, since their dark, coarse leg or arm hair is more visible against their fair complexion.
How Long Will It Last?
Much longer than shaving or waxing, that’s for sure. While no hair removal process is permanent — there are too many factors involved in hair growth for any removal type to be truly permanent — IPL treatments are effective and longer lasting than many other ways to get rid of unwanted hair.
How Many Treatments Will I Need? Is it Expensive?
To be on the safe side, we recommend planning on 10 to 12 treatments. However, many women find noticeable results sooner. Some see results after only one or two sessions. As to the expense, that’s one of the best things about Hollywood Skin IPL hair removal. Treatments start at just $9 each, and we offer discounts when you purchase a package of several treatments. Not only that, but we’ll beat competitors’ pricing by 10%, guaranteed.
OK, What’s the Catch?
Believe it or not, but there’s no catch. This treatment for hair removal is safe, effective, painless, and costs about the same as a waxing treatment — which you’ll have to repeat over and over again.
