The Sapphire IPL Hair Removal Device relies on Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to eliminate hair follicles in the epidermis. It has an ice-cooling head that minimizes heat exposure on the skin, making the process painless and comfortable. This inventive method plays an outstanding role in permanent hair removal. It delivers a spectrum of light that targets the melanin in your hair bulb. This destroys the hair root, making your hair go into its resting phase. After several IPL sessions, your skin will become smoother and more radiant. In addition, regular cleaning and inspection of the IPL handset will enhance its effectiveness.
Benefits of Sapphire IPL Hair Removal
Based on research, the intense pulsed light treatment has one major advantage over traditional hair removal techniques like plucking, shaving, and waxing: it's permanent. There are other benefits of IPL Hair Removal, including the following:
- Long Lasting Hair Removal
Sapphire IPL treatment targets and affects your hair follicles. According to science, a hair follicle is a tunnel-shaped structure in the epidermis of the skin. Human hair starts to grow at the bottom of a follicle. Multiple IPL sessions will affect the follicles in their growth stage, thus reducing the chances of hair regrowth. Unlike other forms of hair removal, intense pulsed light is a great way to obtain long-term results.
- Quick and Convenient
The area with unwanted hair can influence the time it takes to complete an IPL session. Generally, the average time to complete a single session range between 30 to 45 minutes. Most individuals attain permanent hair loss after 3 to 7 IPL treatment sessions. Sapphire IPL treatment is fast and convenient, and it will save you time.
- Reduced Ingrown Hair
As previously mentioned, Sapphire IPL Hair Removal treatment removes the hair directly from the hair bulb or root. Eliminating hair during its growing state will reduce the risk of ingrown hair. Intense pulsed light offers a permanent form of hair reduction, especially when compared to waxing, shaving, or plucking.
- Suitable for Almost Every Skin Type
The intense pulsed light technology can work perfectly on almost every skin type, apart from dark-toned skin. The spectrum of light from the IPL device targets the melanin on the hair follicles. Therefore, the melanin of dark skin tones will be at a higher risk of absorbing the intense pulses. It's important to consult a certified IPL practitioner before opting for permanent hair removal.
- Completely Safe
Sapphire IPL Hair Removal is a clinically-proven permanent hair removal technique. It offers safe and effective long-lasting hair removal results on various body parts, including the face, bikini area, hands, shoulders, and cheeks. In addition, Sapphire IPL Hair Removal treatments are less painful compared to traditional hair removal methods. For instance, waxing and plucking are the most painful hair removal techniques, especially if conducted on a sensitive body part.
Studies have demonstrated that numerous parts of the human body can be treated with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy. Utilizing a Sapphire IPL Hair Removal device allows you to efficiently address important areas such as the underarms, facial region, legs, arms, bikini line, brow interstice, abdomen, chest, and feet. This flexibility and extensive coverage make the IPL Hair Removal procedure highly adaptable and all-encompassing.
What to Expect During a Session
During the IPL session, you'll be required to wear special glasses. These glasses have the ability to protect your eyes from harmful light during the procedure. Unlike other forms of permanent hair removal techniques, IPL treatment can be performed without the need for strong anesthesia or sedation. On the appointment day, the IPL practitioner may apply a cream on the areas with unwanted hair. Note that the cream isn't essential in all cases.
The IPL provider will use the sapphire IPL treatment device on a few test spots to optimize the size, power, and pulse frequency. Adjusting the device to suit your needs is a safety measure. In addition, this step can influence the efficiency of the results. The hand-held IPL device is then focused on the unwanted hair follicles.
The duration of the IPL treatment session will depend on two aspects: the involved surface area and the extent of hair to be removed. Generally, the average time of IPL sessions ranges between 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Most individuals report little discomfort during the IPL Hair Removal treatment. Some will experience a sunburn-like sensation that lasts for at most 5 hours. The sensation can be accompanied by mild to moderate redness. Normally, the treated area is hypersensitive to heat for two days after treatment.
Multiple intense pulsed light treatment sessions are necessary to achieve optimal hair removal. The hairs in the targeted areas grow at different rates. During the IPL treatment session, some hairs might be in their growth phase, while others might be in the resting cycle. Therefore, multiple sessions become vital to eliminate hairs in their growth cycles. The ideal space between the IPL treatment sessions is four to six weeks.
Aftercare and Maintenance
The sapphire IPL treatment is a powerful, non-surgical option that does an outstanding job of removing unwanted hair. However, there are various products and activities to minimize the side effects and achieve optimal results. Below are the aftercare essentials after IPL treatment:
It's important to moisturize after Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. The heat generated by the sapphire IPL Hair Removal device can make your skin dry. If your skin is dry, the IPL treatment might exacerbate it, thus leading to skin redness. Therefore, moisturizing your skin is essential after the IPL procedure. Use a gentle moisturizer twice a day to make your skin feel comfortable. In addition, drink more water to moisturize the skin even more.
- Apply Sunscreen
Sunscreen plays a major part in the skincare routine, but it's more important after the IPL treatment. The right sunscreen can protect your skin from UV rays. According to scientific research, ultraviolet rays are the main culprit for premature aging and other skin problems. Invest in sunscreen with a high super protective factor, especially if you tend to spend your time outdoors. In addition, you can wear protective clothing and limit your time in the sun. All these precautions will keep your skin healthy after the IPL treatment.
- Avoid Sun Exposure
Avoid sun exposure for two to three months after the IPL treatment. Ultraviolet rays from the sun can cause light or dark spots on the treated areas. After the IPL treatment, the skin is more vulnerable to sun damage and sensitive products. Therefore, you should consider buying sunscreen that's high in sun protection factor. Sapphire IPL Hair Removal treatment targets the melanin in the hair roots and follicles with intense light. The intense pulses of this treatment cause damage to the surrounding skin. This makes it more susceptible to sunburns and other skin health issues. Excess sun exposure is the main reason for hyperpigmentation after the IPL treatment. This condition occurs because your skin will produce lots of melanin in response to sun damage. Note that skin damage that occurs as a result of sun exposure after the IPL treatment isn't reversible.
- Cleanse the Skin Gently
Wash the treated areas gently with mild soap. Cleansing the skin is a great way to exfoliate the treated areas. In addition, avoid rubbing the treated area within the first 48 hours. This is because the skin is delicate and prone to damage.
- Give your Skin Some Extra TLC
TLC stands for tender loving care. It's vital to take maximum care of your skin after the IPL treatment. Avoid using harsh skincare products. Some of the products that you should avoid include the following: Perfumed soaps and lotions, Exfoliants, Bleaching creams, or Harsh scrubs
Avoiding these products will improve the effectiveness of the procedure. In addition, chlorine may also cause mild irritations. Therefore, avoid saunas, spas, and pools. Cleanse your skin with a fragrance-free cleanser to attain optimal results.
- Turn Down the Heat
After Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment, your skin will be hypersensitive to heat. Therefore, you should steer away from hot showers and baths. A warm shower can be tolerable, but ensure the water isn't hitting the treated area directly. To achieve the right results as well as healthy skin, wash the treated areas with lukewarm for the first 2-3 days.
- Avoid Makeup in the First 24 Hours
You should keep the treated area clean. Some makeup and cosmetic products can cause redness and irritations. Therefore, you should avoid using these products to lower the risk of irritation. In addition, apply moisturizers after the hair removal session.
