You have probably tried waxing, shaving, sugaring, creams, and just about everything under the sun when it comes to hair removal. And the worst part? These methods do not even work that well. Even if they do happen to work, the hair always grows back. Waxing and sugaring are painful, creams are full of chemicals, and shaving must be done daily in order to be effective. Seriously, who came up with this stuff? Hair removal should be quick and easy.
Another huge downside of all these traditional methods of shaving is ingrown hairs. These pesky hairs get trapped underneath the surface of the skin and can cause irritation, redness, and even infection in severe cases. If the hair is going to grow back, you are sure to develop a few ingrown hairs during the process of regrowth.
If you can relate to the struggle of finding a hair removal method that actually works, we feel your pain. Thankfully, there is another option, and it happens to be the most effective one: IPL hair removal. This amazing process helps to prevent hair from growing back at all, and over time most people stop growing hair in the treated areas entirely!
It is a pain-free, quick, and easy treatment that also happens to be highly cost-effective. Basically, IPL is the best thing that ever happened to you when it comes to hair removal! Read on to learn all about IPL and the top five reasons why you should be using it for all your hair removal needs.
What Is IPL?
Before we dive into the list of reasons why you should get IPL hair removal, you should know a little bit more information about IPL. So, what exactly is IPL? It stands for intense pulsed light. This is a type of light energy that uses multiple wavelengths. In other words, it will work on bigger areas of the body and take less time to do so. Talk about a win-win!
This can be compared to other forms of laser hair removal, which use a single wavelength of light energy and only target small areas of the body. Working on smaller areas means it will take longer to complete each session. This simply means you might need more sessions or longer sessions to achieve the same results as IPL hair removal.
The way that IPL laser works is by using that light energy we mentioned in order to target and damage hair follicles. In doing so, the hairs will begin to slow their growth, and eventually, with enough sessions, they will stop growing back entirely. Some people will not be able to stop the hair growth entirely, and this can be for a variety of reasons. If hair does grow back, it will be thin, fine, and light. It will also only grow back in small patches.
Reasons to Get IPL
We’ve already briefly touched on why you should be getting IPL. But now, let’s dive into the main reasons. If you are removing hair on any part of your body, IPL is worth it for you. This goes for both men and women. Make waxing and shaving a thing of the past and move on to smooth, hair-free skin that lasts. Below, check out our list of the five best reasons to get IPL hair removal.
Huge time saver: You can look at this two ways. One, it saves you time because it is a much faster treatment than waxing and sugaring. You quickly pass the device over your skin, and most in-office treatments take 5-20 minutes, depending on the area.
Two, if you use our at-home device, it can save you time from driving to and from appointments and carving out time to spend at the appointment.
Prevents hair from growing back: This is arguably the best and most convincing reason to get IPL. The whole reason we shave or wax in the first place is so we can remove hair. Wouldn’t it be even better if the hair did not come back at all?
With IPL, the hair’s regrowth phase will slow down until eventually it either barely grows back or it does not grow back at all.
No ingrown hairs: It is bad enough that we have to use hair removal methods that do not even work, but it is even worse when you get an ingrown hair when the hair grows back! When hair gets trapped under the skin, it can form irritating bumps that are red and itchy. If you pick at them, they can become infected. With IPL, the hair doesn’t grow back. If there is no hair, there is no ingrown hair either.
Cost-effective: Over time, IPL is more cost-effective. Waxing appointments have to be made every two to three weeks, which can easily mean spending way over $100 a month. With just a few sessions, IPL can make your hair go away permanently, so you never have to spend money on hair removal again.
- Quick and easy: People love how fast and simple IPL treatment is. You are typically in and out within a few minutes, and doing it on your own only takes a matter of minutes as well. Plus, it is even easier than shaving. A few zaps, and you are on your way to living the hair-free life.
Can You Do IPL at Home?
If you don’t want to leave the privacy of your own home and go into a spa or dermatologist’s office, great news; yes, you can do IPL at home! In fact, KENZZI’s at-home device is faster than getting treatment in the office and just as effective. The fact that it is way more cost-effective is just an added bonus!
Getting treatments performed in an office will cost you hundreds of dollars. Sometimes, depending on the area being treated, it can even cost you thousands. That is a lot of money! We think you should save that money for something even more important. Our at-home device costs a small fraction of the price of in-office treatment. Not to mention that with proper care, the device will give you ten years worth of light flashes.
Think about it: from the comfort of your own home, you can save time and money while still having silky smooth, hair-free skin. Plus, think about how awkward it is having a stranger perform a treatment on your bikini or Brazilian area. Now you can do it yourself in just a few minutes!
After reading this article, we can bet you are ready to start using IPL for hair removal. It is the most effective and easiest treatment for getting rid of unwanted hair. Plus, it is way less painful than waxing and sugaring. Another pro? It doesn’t need to be done daily, like shaving. Once you start seeing the hair regrowth begin to slow down, you can usually get away with doing it once a week with KENZZI!
IPL is different than other laser hair removal treatments because it uses multiple wavelengths as opposed to one. This is why it is less painful, and the sessions are shorter. It can cover larger sections of your body (such as your legs and arms) in less time than a single-wavelength device. Hair will grow back slowly and then eventually not at all.
While treatments at the dermatologist are definitely effective, they are so expensive! A package of IPL treatments can cost you hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars. While having hair-free skin is amazing, it is not worth it to spend all that money. Instead, you should consider using our at-home device for a fraction of the price. The results are just as effective, but you get to do it from the comfort of your own home.
