IPL = Intense Pulsating Light. The light stimulates the hair follicles to enter the dormant phase. As a consequence, the hair is split naturally and regrowth is prevented and your skin is left silky smooth.
The hair growth cycle consists of different phases. IPL technology is effective on hair in the growth phase. Not all hairs are in the same phase at the same time. Why we recommend a 4-12 week treatment schedule to ensure that all desired hairs are effectively treated during their growth phase.
IPL technology gently pulsates light against the skin that is absorbed by the hair root. The darker the hair, the better the light is absorbed from the appliance. The light of the flashes of light stimulates the hair follicles to enter the dormant phase. As a consequence, the hair is split naturally, regrowth is prevented and leaves your skin silky smooth.

It is important to understand that with all forms of IPL / laser (regardless of whether it takes place at the salon or at home), some form of maintenance treatment is always required afterwards so that hair does not grow back.
No. IPL works best on darker hair colors. People with lighter hair colors such as red, gray and white hair we advise against treating with IPL.
This is because very light hair does not contain enough melanin to be able to bring the light down to the root, while red hair contains another type of melanin that does not respond well to IPL treatment.
It is possible to see results with blonde hair and more treatments may be needed than for people with darker hair before the desired result is achieved.
No. IPL needs a low melanin content in the skin, so the skin does not attract light but the hair. Dark skin tones therefore have a greater tendency to absorb the intensely pulsating light, which can burn the skin.
You should not use IPL on tattoos - all around goes well.
