Treatment procedure & field of application
How does the treatment proceed?
A special gel is applied to the skin to optimize the light. Then the skin area is scanned with the applicator, whereby the light pulses emitted are absorbed by the melanin in the skin and travel to the hair root. In this process, the protein in the hair root is denatured and the hair falls out after a few days.
IPL technology can be used to treat almost any part of the body. The areas of the legs and armpits are popular. However, other body regions can also be freed from unwanted hair. Several body regions can also be treated per treatment appointment.
In order to exclude any damage to the skin, all our IPL devices are regularly checked for proper functioning. In order to provide you with the highest level of professionalism, treatments are performed only by our experts.
Skin and hair types
In principle, treatment with the IPL method is possible for almost all people. However, the technique reaches its limits with very light hair. This is due to the lack of melanin in light hair, which is responsible for transporting the light pulse to the hair root. However, we offer other technologies, which are optimal for the treatment of light hair.
Treatment of reddish hair is also problematic. Red hair contains the pigment phaemelanin, which does not absorb light very well.
You should avoid intensive sunbathing before and after the treatment. Visits to the solarium should be urgently avoided. Too much radiation in a short time can lead to different pigmentation, also called hypopigmentation.
