How does IPL Permanent Hair Removal work? No-pain-system technology in IPL Permanent Hair Removal is a breakthrough in customer comfort and effectiveness and is suitable for all skin types of all genders, even the darkest ones.

In recent years, IPL Hair Removal has become a popular choice for anyone looking to remove unwanted hair, whether it’s on the face or body. While the process is safe and non-invasive, a few potential side effects should be aware. One of these is that IPL Hair Removal can destabilize tattoo ink, potentially leading to color changes or even worse. Since IPL Hair Removal targets the pigments, it can also reduce the color of your tattoo or, even worse, cause the pigment to scatter.

It is unsafe to perform IPL treatment over a tattoo – even if you were planning on having that tattoo removed anyway. IPL Hair Removal machines aren’t designed to remove tattoos, and worse than distorting your tattoo, it can potentially lead to burns, blisters, or skin damage.

Not only is this the safest and most convenient option, but your tattoo will look even better on a smooth canvas! IPL Permanent Hair Removal treatment is effective and safe for all skin types of all genders, with minimal risks, even for the darkest skin. Improvements are noticed by most clients after the first few treatments, with noticeably less hair and slower regrowth. Longer-lasting results become increasingly visible after each treatment.
However, there are still options if you already have tattoos and have decided you also want laser hair removal. Cover the tattoo area during the treatment and target the surrounding area for the Hair Removal treatment.
