Removing Unwanted Hair: Waxing vs. IPL vs. Laser


There’s not a woman out there who doesn’t love clean, smooth skin, and there’s also not a woman out there who hasn’t grown sick of shaving!

You don’t need to bothered with shaving any longer. There are a number of different options when it comes to permanent hair removal, including waxing, IPL, and lasers.


Waxing is perhaps the most common way to get rid of unwanted hair but it is also the most painful. Waxing works by applying a sticky wax along with a cloth or strip to your skin, which captures your hair, and then quickly ripping it all off.

In essence, it is like pulling off a bandage—and we all know how much that can hurt!

IPL Hair Reduction

IPL, or intense pulsed light, is a hair removal/reduction treatment that uses visible light to target the melanin pigments in your hair. Basically, this treatment will use heat energy to warm hair, which in turn damages the hair follicle.

In other words, IPL is like a really strong light bulb that can stop hair follicles from growing any more hair. IPL works best on those with dark hair, as it contains more melanin than light hair. It is a semi-permanent solution, and it will take multiple treatments to achieve your desired results.
