How does Advanced Intense Pulsed Light technology work? Pt.1

Posted on 18 Jul, 2011

Laser hair removal treatment is generally considered to be somewhat of a godsend for people who suffer from excessive or unwanted hair on the face or body, but not everyone knows how it works. To clear up any unanswered questions about laser hair removal, let’s take a quick look at the technology behind it…

Advanced Intense Pulsed Light technology

Laser hair removal involves using Advanced Intense Pulsed Light technology, which is one of the few systems that effectively and permanently reduce hair growth on the face and body. it is commonly used to remove hair on the face, legs, underarms, bikini line, back and shoulders, as well as a number of other areas. It is clinically approved by the FDA, so it is completely safe to use provided you go to a good clinic.

In order to get rid of excess hair, the laser is used to target the melanin in the hair follicle and in the hair shaft. It raises the temperature in these areas so that the cells responsible for hair growth (the germinative cells) are destroyed. This kills the active follicle along with its ability to regrow hair.

The treatment is faster than other hair removal lasers, and it also can be used on all skin colours without the danger of scarring or bleaching.
