You Tube Video: 

Hair with the help of laser technologies, HPL or IPL removal is a best practice to curb the unwanted hair growth. The roots of the hair damaged by the laser no longer grow back if the treatment over a period of approximately 4 to 6 months will be repeated, so that the hair during its growth phase will be abandoned.

Nevertheless, the skin can make new hair, then first of all not uniformly flat, but only a few growing, from elsewhere.

The new hairs are just thin and inconspicuous at the beginning. Removing the newly formed hair is much faster and easier than with traditional shaving and epilation. Over the years, and with each subsequent shaving the separately distributed hair are strong and it will happen more. Because even occasional hair on the skin provide not a pretty picture, you must decide again after a few years, whether pursuing a new treatment. Therefore, hair removal providers offer partial subscriptions or memberships for a permanent treatment.

Hair lasers, IPL and HPL

A day before the treatment you should shave the desired areas of the skin. Prior to application, the skin is examined for possible complications or risks.

For an IPL treatment, you get goggles and it is first applied to the skin a contact gel. The gel provides a much more pleasant time during and after the treatment, because the skin is cooled directly after heating by laser.

In the context of a professional application, checks the specialist with short treatment units, whether the skin is allergic and as far as possible adjusts the settings.

If the skin shows no abnormalities, then starts the real deal. Here, the laser in the affected area of the skin is pulled slowly through the gel layer and you can feel light bites and a slight burning, which increases with the duration of treatment.

A laser sends high-energy light of a special wavelength, which is bundled on the skin to be treated and desolate as the roots of the hair. Several sessions must be scheduled for a good result. Laser treatment for permanent hair removal works especially with dark hair, where more melanin is present, that can be captured by the laser with a wavelength.

In contrast to the laser, the flash lamp produces short pulses of light with a wavelength of 650 - 950nm. The light energy is transported via the hairline to the hair follicle, where the light energy is absorbed by the pigment melanin and converted into heat. While the nutrient cells of the roots of the hair are desolate. The roots of the hair or the hair follicle can then produce no new hair.

HPL vs. IPL: HPL (home pulsed light) is very similar to IPL and is described as the next generation of IPL (Intensed pulsed light). The development consists mainly of energy efficiency to enable longer battery life for the home user. In addition, the light impulse is emitted in a shorter time, but with more energy. This ensures good results and protects the skin. HPL is a patent of silk'n and is sold by this manufacturer.

For all methods of hair removal, only hair follicles can be treated, are located in the growth phase. Around 60-70% of our hair is however reside in hibernation, so that multiple single sessions at intervals of 6 to 10 weeks is needed to achieve comprehensive and permanent hair removal.
