Why do you need several treatments?
Only about 20% of the hair can be reduced per session for the following reason: Living hair: They develop, grow, and eventually die. It is called the growth phase. The hair roots lie in different depths of the skin. Since not all hair in the body can be in the same growth phase, it is clear that only a certain percentage of hair roots can be reached and destroyed during a treatment.
In order to ensure optimal treatment, the following should be avoided 14 days before the first treatment:
- Pluck out the hair with a pair of tweezers
- bleaching the hair
- Use of depilatory creams
- No solarium visit
- 3 days before the treatment you must shave the areas to be treated.
- One day before the treatment, do not irritate the swimming pool, the sauna or the skin by other means.
IPL or laser?
While lasers provide a fixed wavelength, IPL devices have a broad spectrum of light and can better adapt to hair thickness and hair color to remove them.
Permanent hair removal is only possible in the active growth phase (anagen phase). In this phase, the melanin concentration is highest and the hair is firmly attached to the root. Approximately 1/3 of the body's hair is always in this phase, so that during a treatment about 20% of the hair roots are permanently destroyed by the pulse light. The hair type and the growth of the hair are dependent on the ethnic origin, the age, the body region, the hormonal system and any medication. The number of individual sessions is therefore very individual, but it must be realistic with about 8 & 10 sessions.
Is hair removal really permanent?
It would be dubious to tell you all your hair would never grow again, but the IPL method can free you from unsightly hairpins for many years. Depending on the nature of the hair, the skin and your lifestyle, it may happen that after a certain time a few hair regrowth again. However, these are usually thinner and not so dark. An after-treatment would also make these disappear for a long time.
