What is IPL?

What is IPL hair removal?

In Singapore’s year-round tropical climate, one-piece dresses, sleeveless shirts, and T-shirts are staples of the wardrobe. Miniskirts, hot pants, and other clothes that show off the legs are also a common choice. There’s just one thing to watch out for unwanted hair.
Some people take care of it on their own with razors or wax, but it’s a lot of work, and there’s a risk of damaging your skin. Not only that, it always grows back.
While it’s tempting to go see a professional at a salon, you may not have any idea which salon to visit. If so, IPL hair removal at Ginza Calla is an excellent choice.
IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and removes hair by targeting melanin in the roots with

broad-spectrum light energy to weaken the roots.
Irradiation power is suppressed more weakly than a laser, a trained therapist can administer safely without a doctor. IPL laser is extremely safe and effective.
While everyone feels pain differently and it can vary depending on the part of the body, another advantage of IPL is that the pain is extremely mild.

IPL vs. waxing

Waxing is a simple and convenient way to remove unwanted hair. There are many products available, and they are readily available over the counter.
So what are the differences between waxing and IPL hair removal?
Compared to waxing, it’s said that IPL hurts less when removing hair. As a result, there’s less stress involved in getting rid of unwanted hair. And because there is less pain, IPL is said to be perfect for those with sensitive skin, or for removing hair from delicate areas such as the face and bikini area.
Waxing, on the other hand, involves applying an adhesive wax to the skin to stick to unwanted hair.

it isn’t well-suited for those with delicate or thin skin. There is a risk of damaging the skin.
Also, the wax needs to get a good grip on the hair, so the hair needs to be a minimum of 5 mm long. New hair begins to grow back two to four weeks after removal, so treatment is required once a month to maintain smooth skin.
Brazilian waxing, which is popular now, involves removing nearly all hair from the bikini area using this method.
