Get Rid of Facial Hair Permanently and Safely with IPL Hair Removal Devices
Many of us are on the lookout for errant facial hairs, ready to tweeze, pluck, wax, or shave them away the moment they make themselves known. Unfortunately, this hassle often makes us feel more self-conscious than we need to be, and of course the hair just keeps coming back over and over again.
The good news is that you don’t need to be trapped in this never-ending hair removal cycle anymore. There are permanent facial hair removal methods available that are perfectly safe for use on the face, and provide effective results to help you break away from tweezers, razors, and wax strips, for good.
First, let’s take a quick look at the way facial hair grows, and why those pesky unwanted hairs just keep coming back.
How Does Our Hair Actually Grow?
We all know that hair on different parts of our bodies grows in slightly different ways. The hair on our heads grows much longer than the hairs on our arms or legs, and usually has a very different texture and feel to it. The rate of growth and the type of hair is determined by the follicles in our skin which are responsible for the growth of each and every hair.
Within the follicle, there is a collection of cells that produce proteins which makes up the hair itself, starting with the root. As blood flows through the surrounding tissues, feeding the hair producing cells, proteins are generated and added to the hair. As the hair continues to grow, it emerges out of the top of the follicle and becomes visible.
If the hair becomes cut, or is pulled out entirely, the cells in the follicle simply pick up where they left off, generating new hair in the same method, over and over again. This is why hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking are only temporary, since they are only affecting the hair itself and not the cells in the follicle that are responsible for growing new hairs.
Shortcomings of Common Facial Hair Removal Methods
Looking at the most common methods of facial hair removal, it’s easy to see why they are less-than-perfect solutions. Shaving is a fast and easy method, but results in rough stubble on the skin as the cut-off hairs continue to grow. Shaving can also be somewhat messy, depending if you prefer a wet shave or use an electric razor.
Tweezing is an extremely precise method of facial hair removal, but since it’s done one hair at a time, it can take a very long time. It also can be painful, or at least uncomfortable, as each hair is yanked out one by one. In spite of being a longer-lasting method when compared to shaving, since it removes the entire hair instead of just cutting it off, it doesn’t solve the problem of regrowth. This means you’ll need to take up the tweezers again when the hair becomes visible once more.
Waxing is another popular method for facial hair removal, but not without it’s disadvantages. Like tweezing, waxing removes the entire hair from the follicle, so it won’t grow back as rough stubble, but many people find it painful. It’s certainly faster than plucking, since you can have multiple hairs in one area waxed at one time, but this often results in redness or swelling, especially for people with sensitive skin.
After considering the disadvantages of most common hair removal methods, you may be left wondering if there is an option that offers a better solution without the pain, mess, or hassle.
Advantages of Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal
Intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal offers many benefits over traditional hair removal methods. First, you’ll be happy to learn that IPL hair removal devices are pain-free and irritation-free, and can be used in the comfort of your own home. IPL devices remove the entire hair, meaning you’ll get long-lasting results and won’t have regrowth in the form of rough-cut stubble on your skin.
IPL hair removal devices, unlike the other common hair removal methods, also works to inhibit the regrowth of hair with each treatment. This means that the hair will grow back slower and slower with each subsequent treatment, leaving you with smooth, supple, hair-free skin that lasts. How is IPL able to deliver such advantages? The key is in the light-based technology that directly targets the root of the hair in the follicle, and affects the cells responsible for hair growth.
How Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal Works
Intense pulsed light hair removal works by focusing beams of light energy at the areas to be treated. These beams of light cause the pigment within the hair to heat up, all the way down to the root. This heat affects the cells surrounding the root that generate the proteins which make up the hair, inhibiting and slowing new growth.
The existing hair falls out entirely, including the root, and the follicle itself becomes unable to produce new hair. After each treatment, the growth rates become slower and slower until the results are essentially permanent, lasting up to 8 weeks or more between follow-up maintenance treatments.
Differences Between Facial Hair Removal vs. Body Hair Removal
When choosing a method of hair removal, it’s important to keep in mind a few differences between hair removal on the body and hair removal on the face. The face is often home to more sensitive skin than what’s on our arms or legs, and so you should always perform a thorough test of any hair removal method on your skin before you commit.
In addition, you must be extremely careful with any facial hair removal method so that you do not affect your eyes in any way, including any methods that use chemicals as well as those that use intense light. For this reason, the use of IPL hair removal devices should remain away from the eyes and only be used on areas such as the lip, jawline, lower cheeks, and neck.
Achieving the Best Results from Permanent Facial Hair Removal
With any permanent hair removal method, the best results take time to achieve. This means that the occasional re-treatment session is advised to ensure that the hair growth has been effectively halted and that you are able to consistently maintain smooth, hair-free skin. Over time, you’ll notice that the interval between retreatments becomes greater, and you’ll need fewer maintenance hair removal sessions as the results last longer.
