Intense pulsed light hair removal is a permanent hair removal treatment using high-powered light of a specific color which, when applied to an area of the skin, is absorbed by the hair, causing the destruction of its bulb by heating. The target of this color is melanin, which is present in high concentration in the hair, but also in the skin.
The more selectively the energy is sent, the more effective the destruction of the hair. For this, the duration of the pulse must be close to the “TRT” (Thermal Relaxation Time of the hair). This way, the optimal efficiency is obtained in relation to the energy sent. In a few sessions, the hair disappears and no longer grows back.
Waxing is the process of removing hair from the root by using a sticky substance, such as wax, to adhere to the body hair, then removing this substance and pulling the hair out of the follicle. New hair will not grow back in the previously removed area for four to six weeks, although some people begin to see regrowth after only one week, as some of their hair has a different growth cycle. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic hair (called bikini waxing or intimate hair removal), legs, arms, back, abdomen, chest, knuckles and feet. There are many types of hair removal that can be used to remove unwanted hair.
