“Why didn’t I know this before? why only now? I should’ve done this way earlier! This actually saved me more money than waxing!” These are just some of the common responses or comments I get from my patients who got rid of their stubborn, unwanted and excess hair via intense pulse light drastically, if not permanently.
Drastically. If you have never done an aesthetic treatment like this before, know that it takes several sessions to achieve desired outcome. Typically, we start with 3-series protocol at our clinic but that would depend on the severity vis-a-vis thickness of the hair. 3 series translates to every 4 weeks for the next 3 months. Reason being, we are targeting the active growth phase of the hair since our hairs grow at a different rate. IPL or intense pulse light or laser, if done correctly under experienced hands is a life-changing experience. Both procedures target the pigment of the hair, the darker the hair, the better expected outcome. Repetitive exposure to laser or IPL eventually leads to total hair destruction in time. It is important to have this procedure done in a clinical setting where there is actually a DOCTOR on board so your medical history can be assessed. Why? hirsutism (excessive hair in women) is sometimes traced to hormonal problems such as PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). Untreated or under-treated, laser or ipl cannot solve it completely. Thus, the need to see a doctor because it is a medical condition that needs to be managed first before anything else.
Curious as to how the procedure goes? here’s a snippet! If you missed my previous post, I started doing Youtube to show you things I love and covet (think makeup, fashion, travel, etc) plus inside peek at some of my in-demand aesthetic procedures. Some things are better shown than written, plus you get to see the real side of me outside blogging! Please subscribe to my channel and like the video, I appreciate your support as always!
