The Safest Way to a Lifetime of Permanent Hair Removal for Teens
With a Silk’n IPL hair removal device, teens can safely and effectively remove unwanted hair permanently.
When you’re going through adolescence, the moment you decide to start removing unwanted hair really is a pretty big milestone. It’s not just because it’s a sign of maturing, but also because it marks a major shift in your personal care routines. Now, money must be spent on products to remove that unwanted hair, and time must be spent dealing with it on a regular basis.
At first, many of us find a bit of novelty in these new grown-up parts of our personal care routines, but after a handful of times of shaving or waxing, the novelty quickly wears off. Once the reality sets in that no matter how many times you do it, that hair is going to keep coming back, the typical methods of hair removal can quickly turn the process in to a monotonous chore. It won’t take long before you start yearning for an easier, better way to remove unwanted hair.
Fortunately, there is a better way to manage unwanted hair. It’s called intense pulsed light hair removal, and the Silk’n Infinity is the latest innovation in easy-to-use at-home IPL hair removal technology. How is the Infinity able to safely produce such amazing results? The answer is simple, but first we need to explain why most other hair removal methods aren’t able to provide the permanent results that you really want.
Why are most common hair removal methods only temporary?
The most common hair removal method, which is also the one that most people start using in their teenage years, is shaving. Shaving is fast and easy, but it won’t be very long before you start to feel stubble on the shaved areas as the hair continues to grow out. Most people find that they need to shave about every couple of days to maintain the look and feel that they want. This time adds up fast, and so does the cost of good quality razors and shaving gels, which can help avoid razor burn and other types of irritation.
Other methods, such as waxing, sugaring and epilators, offer longer lasting effects than shaving, but are still just temporary solutions. Unlike shaving, which cuts the hair at the surface of the skin, methods like these work by pulling out the entire hair from the follicle. This means it takes much longer before the new hair becomes noticeable, but rest assured that it will always come back eventually. In addition, the process of yanking out hairs by waxing, sugaring, or with an epilator is often very uncomfortable, if not painful.
So, it looks like most common methods offer a choice between fast & easy results that you need to do every couple of days, or longer-lasting results that can be painful each time you do it. That’s not much of a choice, is it? Certainly not, and when you stack them up against IPL, the difference becomes quite clear. Let’s take a look at what makes IPL so different from other methods of hair removal.
How are IPL hair removal treatments different?
Intense pulsed light hair removal takes a totally different approach than other methods to treating unwanted hair. While most common methods work by targeting the hair itself, IPL works by targeting the cells inside the follicle that are responsible for hair growth and regeneration. With each successive treatment, the effects of IPL hair removal become cumulative, eventually resulting in permanent hair removal and the smooth, hair-free skin you want.
IPL starts with an pulse of intense, focused light that is applied to the treatment area of the skin by the IPL device. These pulses of light become absorbed by the hairs in the treatment area, at which point the energy is converted from light in to heat. This heat energy travels through the hair down in to the root, and is then transferred to the surrounding cells inside the follicle. The introduction of this heat energy to the cells inhibits their functions and slows down their ability to grow new hairs until their hair growth processes cease entirely.
For a quick and easy visual reference on how this process works, here is a helpful video illustration that shows IPL hair removal in action.
Is IPL hair removal really safe for teens?
It is totally normal for teens and parents to be concerned about the safety of personal care products & devices, and it’s no different when it comes to evaluating hair removal methods.
It’s important to know that IPL hair removal isn’t just one of the most effective methods of hair removal, but it’s also one of the safest and most comfortable.
Advanced IPL devices such as the Silk’n Infinity have built-in safety settings to ensure proper application, and adjustable power modes so that users can customize their hair removal treatments to best suit their unique combination of skin and hair tones. This is an important factor to keep in mind, as using a setting that’s too high is not recommended and a setting that’s too low can reduce how effective the treatments are. Here’s a quick reference guide to the different energy settings that are appropriate for various combinations of skin tone and hair tone.
Silk’n IPL devices are perfectly safe for teens to use for hair removal, with the general recommended minimum age for starting treatments is around 16 years old. This is due to a couple of different factors that can affect what users should expect from a permanent hair removal treatment plan.
First, it should be considered that throughout the teenage years and even in to early adulthood, the body is undergoing a constant process of maturity. This means that not all hair follicles start actively producing hair at the same time. Some might not appear until more years of maturity have passed, meaning that some areas may need to be re-treated if these previously dormant hair follicles start to produce visible hairs.
Second, it’s very important to keep in mind that while you can always remove more hair, once it’s gone you can’t put it back. This is particularly relevant for teens, as fashion trends and personal appearance goals can change quite rapidly in very short periods of time as their lifestyle evolves over time. Because of this, it’s wise for teens to approach permanent hair removal with a conservative mindset, remembering that they can always choose to continue treating additional areas if they desire.
Fortunately, with the Silk’n Infinity, both of these factors become very easy to manage thanks to the amazing features and capabilities of this advanced IPL hair removal device. Let’s look closer at the differences that elevate the Infinity above all other devices.
Achieve permanent hair removal with the Silk’n Infinity
For starters, the Silk’n Infinity uses at-home IPL technology that we have perfected throughout our line of popular Flash&Go hair removal devices. Building on this proven IPL platform, we integrated a series of new features and enhancements to speed up results and make the device easier than ever to use.
The Infinity uses a new ultra-long-life emitter bulb that is capable of generating over 400,000 individual high-intensity light pulses. That’s more than enough for an entire lifetime of hair removal treatments without ever needing to replace the cartridge. This is great news for teenagers, since the Infinity is the only hair removal device you’ll ever need, and is always ready for you to resume treatments any time you want.
In addition, the Infinity combines IPL hair removal with galvanic energy to stimulate the skin, boost its natural repair processes, and allow the light pulses to more effectively penetrate deep down in to the root of the hairs inside the follicles. As the Infinity passes over the treatment area, the electrode on the tip of the device transmits this galvanic energy to the skin, encouraging the follicles to open and increasing circulation within the skin, optimizing each treatment for the fastest possible results. You’ll spend less time dealing with hair removal and more time on literally anything else that you’d rather be doing!
