The Ultimate Guide to Permanent Hair Removal at Home
Oh, the joys of hair removal! Yeah, we’re being a tad sarcastic. Between the pain of tweezing, the discomfort of razor rash, the occasional nicks & cuts, and the overall unpleasantness of waxing, it’s a wonder we all don’t throw our hands up in the air and just forget about the whole thing.
Furthermore, the time you invest in these methods to remove our hair over and over again really adds up, especially if you choose to go to a clinic or salon for hair removal. Those appointments can be a real hassle to work in to a busy schedule, and aren’t exactly cheap either! Wouldn’t it be nice to have an alternative that avoided all those annoyances, saved time, saved money, and still produced the silky-smooth, hair free skin that you want, all in the comfort of your own home?
It’s not a fairy tale, and we’re here to tell you all about how it’s done. This is the guide you need to get gorgeous, silky-smooth hair-free skin right at home, permanently. That’s right, PERMANENTLY!
Common Hair Removal Methods Are Temporary
As you know, common hair removal methods are all only temporary solutions. Shaving only lasts a day before you can definitely feel that stubble again. Waxing, epilators, and depilatory creams last a little longer, but within a week or so that hair will once again be noticeable. The reason for this is that these methods all deal with only the individual hairs themselves, and do absolutely nothing to stop hair from growing back.
In order to get that hair to stay gone, you need a method of hair removal that actually stops the follicles from generating new hair. This is where the difference comes in between typical methods like shaving and waxing, and more effective methods like light-based hair removal. Light-based hair removal produces the permanent results you want, without any of the pain or discomfort associated with other methods of hair removal.
How can something as simple as light be used to achieve these kinds of hair removal results? The answer may surprise you!
How Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal Works
As we mentioned earlier, in order to permanently remove hair, you need a method that prevents each follicle in the skin from being able to grow new hairs. To do this, the cells deep down in the follicle that surround the root must be targeted with a treatment that will inhibit their ability to generate hair, permanently. This is the way that intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal technology works.
It all starts with a very intense pulse of light applied to the treatment area that is generated by the handheld IPL device. This light is then absorbed by the hairs, and is converted in to heat energy deep down at the root of the hair within the follicles. This heat energy is transferred to the surrounding cells, slowing their functions and inhibiting new hair growth. As successive treatments are applied, the results become permanent, and new hairs will no longer grow from the treated follicles.
If this all sounds pretty high-tech, you’d be right. IPL is a very popular hair removal method offered by many high-end clinics and premium aesthetic salons. However, a pricey salon is definitely not the only place you can get effective IPL hair removal. Thanks to incredible advances in at-home IPL technology, you can easily get amazing hair removal results right at home!
At-Home Hair Removal Devices vs. Salons and Clinics
When it comes to at-home hair removal, no other method offers the ease-of-use, convenience, comfort, and impressive results of an IPL device. At-home IPL treatments are completely pain-free, and take very little time, even for larger areas, such as your legs. At-home IPL devices are simple to operate, require little or no maintenance, and can be used on a variety of different skin tones and hair types.
If you measure these factors against methods like shaving or waxing that can cause pain and irritation, or the time-consuming appointments of treatments at a costly salon or aesthetic spa, the benefits of an at-home IPL hair removal device become quite clear! At-home IPL hair removal devices are simple to use, affordable, and effective, helping to save you from all the downsides of other hair removal approaches.
Simple Tips for Keeping Your Skin Healthy
There are many easy things you can do as part of your daily beauty routine and healthy lifestyle that will help to ensure that you get the best results possible from each and every treatment with your at-home IPL hair removal device. Here are a few of the best tips for keeping your skin healthy, vibrant, and resilient!
Any dermatologist will tell you that one of the most overlooked aspects of our lifestyles that can have a big impact on the health of our skin is staying hydrated. Maintaining a regular intake of water throughout the day helps to give your body one of the most essential elements it needs to function properly.
If dry skin is a frequent problem you encounter, moisturizing regularly will help provide relief as well as help your skin to be more resilient to the damaging effects of dryness. We recommend using a gentle, non-oily moisturizer that will leave your skin feeling fresh, light, and soft. It may take a few trials with various brands or styles of moisturizer to find the best one for your skin type, but once you do you’ll notice a big difference in the look and feel of your skin.
In addition, sun exposure is a critical factor that can affect the health of your skin. Minimize direct sun exposure when possible, use light clothing and seek shade in the hot summer months, and be sure to protect yourself with a good quality SPF sunscreen. In the event that you do get a sunburn, avoid using any hair removal method on the damaged area of skin until it has completely healed and is back to normal.
How to Prepare Your Skin for At-Home IPL Treatments
Those tips will help you keep your skin healthy day in and day out, but there is one more thing you should do right before your at-home IPL hair removal treatment that will help you achieve optimum effectiveness from each treatment.
Before you start your at-home IPL hair removal treatment, you should prepare the area by giving it a fresh shave. Shaving before treating with IPL helps provide a smooth surface for the device to glide over for better comfort, and ensures that the hair is in the best possible condition to absorb the light pulses.
You should NEVER wax, tweeze or use an epilator prior to using your IPL device as these methods will remove the entire hair from the skin, preventing the light pulses from being efficiently absorbed and converted to heat energy in the root of the hair. Shaving is preferred as it leaves the base of the hair intact inside the follicle, providing the ideal scenario for the IPL device to do its job properly. Of course, once all of your treatments are completed and you have achieved permanent hair removal, you can ditch the razor forever!
