There are plenty of questions that every day you submit to us to learn more about some mechanisms on our treatments, first of all the hair removal with IPL. For this reason, in this new post we have collected some of the most frequently asked questions and their answers.
You can carry out the treatment with pulsed light even in the summer?
Yes, thanks to the innovative protocol Sun & Safe for tanned skin you can continue the treatment with IPL during the summer, with no risk to the skin. The important thing is not to expose themselves to the sun two days before and two days after each session.
2 days before it is possible to not expose themselves to direct sunlight because the stimulation of melanin in contact with the solar rays, could lead to a greater absorption of energy during the IPL sitting causing a burn. After the session of IPL, however, the skin contains a lot of heat and then exposing the skin to the sun may cause a rise in body temperature causing a burn.
You can shave between one session and the other? How?
Usually it is recommended to not remove the hair from one session to the other because our specialized operators need to control the type of hair and the areas in which it grows. But if you need it you can remove the hair with the help of a razor. The important thing is never to remove them from the root by waxing or tweezers that could re-stimulate hair growth, reversing the effect of the IPL.
It risks a thickening of the hair by shaving with a razor from one session to the other?
No, shaving does not imply an increase in the amount of hair or a strengthening. Simply by shaving, the hairs are cut from the stem with no effect on root.
From what age you can start waxing with IPL?
Girls can begin the sessions of IPL after two or three regular cycles from the first menstrual cycle.
For boys, however, the minimum age is 18 years since until this age may still be hormonal imbalances in place.

Why do we have to wait about 45 days between sessions the other?
Why do you need that the hair treated with the pulsed light to fall on their own and this process usually takes about 2 or 3 weeks, after which the new hair should grow by at least 2-3 mm in length. In order for the light to come down to the root, the hair must be in the anagen phase that must be fully attached to the root. A hair is in the anagen phase, or growth phase when pulling, is not clear.
What kind of clothing is appropriate to wear when doing a session of IPL?
The ideal is to wear garments of breathable cotton clothing, so that, after the sitting skin can breathe after accumulating heat. It is very important to avoid tight and synthetic clothing that not only increase the perception of heat but can easily lead to skin irritation.
The depilation painful?
No, it is not a painful treatment, but you may feel a slight discomfort depending on customer sensitivity.
What are the light-sensitive drugs?
There are several light-sensitive drugs such as estrogen, anti-biotic, anti-inflammatory, and many others. The important thing is to carefully read the package insert of the drug and warn operators whenever you have any doubts about the medications you are taking before starting the session.
You can carry out the treatment with IPL during pregnancy?

The IPL is not harmful to the fetus but it is still advisable to wait until the end of the lactation period before resuming with the sessions, so that the hormones can return to normal operation.Tags: Frequently Asked Questions, IPL
