Regular removal of unnecessary hair, regardless of the method of depilation we use, is troublesome and time consuming. That is why every woman dreams of getting rid of re-growing hair once and for all. However, when we begin to think seriously about permanent depilation, it is usually too late for it, because summer has just arrived and with it the sun, which is the primary contraindication to use laser.
In our clinic, permanent photodepilation IPL procedures can be performed throughout the whole year. It is possible thanks to the British IPL i200+ system. It is a high class device, which as one of few IPLs has a medical certificate. IPL depilation guarantees the best effect and safety thanks to so-called “square pulse technology”, patented and used exclusively in this device.
Photodepilation IPL i200 + emits light absorbed by melanin – the pigment that gives colour to hair and skin. IPL light absorption by melanocytes (cells containing melanin) involves transmission of large amounts of energy, which through the hair shaft reaches its bulb, effectively destroying it along with the hair follicle.
For photodepilation IPL to be effective, light-treated hair must be in the anagen phase, i.e. the growth phase. Under normal conditions, 40-80% of hair in a given skin area is in this phase. Thus, about 50% of anagenic hair follicles and hair are destroyed in a single treatment. Completely permanent effect of removing 80-100% of hair is usually achieved after 5-8 treatments. If after some time a few hairs grow back, they are much thinner, sparser and brighter, and their growth process is noticeably slower. A so called “reminder” treatment is then recommended.
Preparation for the procedure
The first procedure is preceded by consultation with a cosmetologist during which the decision about the procedure or trail tests is made after an interview. If you are qualified for the procedure, do not pull your hair out for at least 4 weeks before it (shaving is acceptable) and do not use depilatory creams for a week before.
In the case of tanned skin, the procedure can only be performed after the tan has gone out.
