IPL hair permanently removed with light energy the IPL method of hair removal is based on light energy, similar to the laser method. The difference of the methods in the use of the wavelengths of light. The laser uses a fixed wavelength of light and IPL permanent hair removal a whole range this mode is same. Both methods work according to the principle of selective Photothermolysis. IPL stands for “Intense Pulsed Light”, translated “Intense pulsed light” means.
The name is the hair removal method: A spectrum of visible light is discharged in the form of short light flashes over the skin. The energy density and velocity of the IPL adjust this on the treated skin and hair type. The IPL treatment, harmful UVA, UVB and UVC rays are filtered out completely. The IPL light energy emitted is absorbed by all tissues of our body. It’s the color bearers, the so-called chromophore.
Chromophores show (such as melanin and Hamoglobin) However a different absorbing capacity. This is for the treatment with light energy advantage, especially for the permanent hair removal with IPL. Because hair removal the light should be placed mainly on the melanin in the hair. Therefore, appropriate wavelengths of visible light are used for the IPL hair removal, which can be absorbed directly by the melanin without harming surrounding tissue. Since the chromophore melanin anregbare electrons are available, these can convert the photons of light into heat energy (selective Photothermolysis). The heat buildup in the melanin in the hair removal finally ensures the desolation of the follicle. Of this process in the anagen (growth phase) the hair root is irreparably damaged and no new hair can educate more. Because not all hairs are in the anagen phase, the treatments at a distance of six to eight weeks must be repeated. Studies have shown that up to 90 percent of the hair can be removed with the IPL method, which have enough melanin. Blonde and white hair can be removed with IPL or laser. Only current epilation is suitable for this. Petra Margrave
