Erikka IPL Hair Removal Handset
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It uses high intensity light with wavelength range that targets the specific cells in the hair follicles. The light converts into heat energy that shrinks the hair follicles and ultimately leads to the reduction of hair.
IPL works for all except the darkest skin tone. Please refer to the chart on How To Use page to check the skin tone. IPL or Laser targets melanin content which is responsible for color. For dark skin type, IPL device cannot differentiate between skin and hair and can sometime target skin. That is why IPL is not recommended for darkest skin type.
IPL treatment relies on the melanin in the hair absorbing the light energy. Treatment is most effective on dark hair. It is not effective on very light, red, or grey colored hair.
