We have explored the most common hair removal methods in order to highlight that IPL not only saves you time and embarrassment but also is very cost effective long term.
Shaving, “The Long Term Penny Thief”
Many are inaugurated into the world of hair removal with this method and, whether it’s done with a conventional razor or a power-driven one, for several it is still the technique of choice. Hair grows back thicker and darker and for some can be a daily pain. It maybe the lowest cost of all the methods on the market however the average person spends £100 to £300 on razor cartridges and shaving foam per year!
Beauty salon waxing, “The Luxury Splurge”
A method in removing hair directly from the root with the use of waxes. This method of hair removal is only semi-permanent where hair will grow back in two to eight weeks within waxed areas of the body. Some people find waxing to be of a great discomfort and a common side effect are ingrown hairs. When hair is pulled from the skin at an angle, as it is with waxing, it can grow back in at the same angle and infiltrate the follicle, thus becoming an ingrown hair. Once this happens, you will often get a rash-like reaction or in extreme cases, an infection. Not attractive for when you want to get the pins for your party frock! The cost of waxing depends on the beauty salon itself and the area however most range from £30 to £80 per session, say on average is £50 a session once a month – that’s £600 a year! Double ouch!
IPL, “The Under Dog”
The Intense Pulsed Light is positioned on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the required area is treated. It can also be used to treat a larger area of the skin at the same time, which lessens the amount of time it takes to remove any hair. The IPL machine can target dark, coarse hairs whilst leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 4-8 weeks, depending on the area treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are needed for optimum results.
While the treatments may seem pricy at first, IPL hair removal courses can drastically save you money especially because ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions. The first initial investment is about the cost of a year’s worth of shaving and considering shaving is a daily nuisance and that IPL takes a few sessions to get rid of hair for good, this makes this new modern marvel a budget saving underdog.
