IPL Underarms Treatment

Many people want to look their best these days and want to eliminate unwanted hair on the chest, back, or sensitive area of their bodies quickly and easily.

IPL (intense pulsed light) is an ideal solution to help remove unwanted underarm hair. With this device, you can forget about ingrown hairs, bumps, razor burn, and dark patches of skin that come with other saving methods, such as waxing, shaving, or plucking your hair away.

How does the IPL work?

IPL is a new state-of-the-art technology that uses specially formulated gel that’s activated when exposed to beams of filtered light. It delivers numerous wavelengths of energy, meaning it can treat a larger skin area more quickly.

Typically, it produces scattered pulses and energy, whereas laser treatment produces concentrated pulses and energy. That means a laser has a narrower focus than IPL, making IPL more gentle and the best alternative for people with sensitive skin types.

Besides, when compared to self-treatments such as plucking, shaving, and waxing, the IPL technology is pain-free, more gentle to your skin, and has minimal to no discomfort. In addition, the gel used contains plant peptide that helps your skin to become even smoother and polished.

How Do You Use IPL On Your Underarms At Home?

Using a device to shave your underarms at home is pretty easy. You only need basic knowledge of how this device works and follow a simple procedure. With this device, healthy and neatly shared underarms have never been easier and cost-effective. Here’s is the steps you should follow to get that clean shave at home using IPL:

Plug your device into a power source: This step is self-explanatory; the IPL underarm device has a power cord that you should ensure is plugged the entire time you’re using it.

Trim the hairs on the body part(s) you’ll use the device on: Many misconceptions have been going around about this step; some people say that you shouldn’t shave. However, the treatment is more effective when you shave beforehand. Simply lather up your underarms and gently use a sharp razor to remove the excess hair.

Choose your setting: This device has five strength settings that range from the weakest to the strongest. A lower setting doesn’t necessarily mean it’s less effective; it’s gentler on the skin and can take a little longer to see the same results as when you’re using a higher setting. It’s recommended that you start with a lower setting and work your way up. That’ll enable you to learn the strength of the IPL your skin can tolerate.

Hold the button down and move the device across your skin: The device will emit light flashes and pulses on the hair and pigment in your skin, giving your underarms a clean shave. Ensure you cover the whole area you’re treating and go over it a couple of times to achieve the desired result.

Unplug and store your device: When done, unplug the device and store it in a storage container. When used and cared for properly, your IPL will last up to 10 years or longer!
