IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, and is a safe and non-radiating light wave, targeting the melanin in the hair follicle by converting light to heat to target the hair follicle. because of this energy conversion, a small percentage of customers may experience some redness or light swelling after a treatment, however this should subside within a few days. customers may also experience some brown marks which darken and then fade after a few days too. We recommend using a high quality moisturizer or Aloe Vera gel after every treatment.
