3 REASONS WHY IPL HAIR REDUCTION IS BETTER THAN SHAVING & WAXING

3 REASONS WHY IPL HAIR REDUCTION IS BETTER THAN SHAVING & WAXING

Throw aside the razors and wax-strips.

IPL Hair Reduction is a nonsurgical treatment that uses Intense Pulsed Light (hence the “IPL”) to remove unwanted dark, coarse hairs from certain parts of the body. Here are three reasons why you should stop fussing with ineffective razors and painful waxing and pursue a more long-lasting result.

#1 IPL technology is much more precise than clunky razors and large, poorly shaped wax-strips.

When it comes to razors and wax-strips, it is difficult to be extremely precise with the areas being addressed because the products being used simply cannot accurately adjust to the contours of the body. Many men and women struggle with cuts, razor burn, or bleeding when shaving or waxing because of this. An IPL Hair Reduction treatment has the ability to selectively target these unwanted hairs in common areas such as the upper lip, chin, bikini line, legs or underarms without harming the surrounding skin.

#2 An IPL treatment is much faster than you may think.

With each pulse treating a quarter-sized area of multiple hairs every second, smaller areas can be treated in less than a minute. Hardly any longer than it takes to shave or wax. Even larger areas like the legs can usually be completed in under an hour.

#3 IPL Hair Reduction treatments are safe and results last exponentially longer than shaving or waxing.

Like laser hair removal, IPL treatments can also be used for permanent hair removal in about 5 treatments, whereas shaving and waxing have to be done constantly and can actually cause the hair to grow back quicker and thicker. IPL treatments are also safe and require no downtime following the treatment.
