What is DPL and how does it work?
Using Dual Pulse Light technology, a combination of traditional IPL and laser power source to activate a more controlled type of light pulses to deliver quick individual shots with low fluence but with high energy density. It targets the dark pigments in the hair follicles and damages it, killing it to prevent new hair follicles from growing.
Will it be painful?
There will be light and warm sensation on your skin and a light tapping sensation from the light energy. Ultrasound gel will be applied to protect and hydrate the skin. The sensation is bearable with minimal pain involved.
I have dark skin, is this suitable for me?
This treatment is not suitable to clients with dark skin type. We usually classify skin types based on the Fitzpatrick skin type classification.
Clients with skin type 4 and above are not suitable for this treatment as the darker melanin on the skin will absorb more energy than a lighter skin tone, thus this will cause more discomfort and the client will be at a higher risk of burn.
Will I get ingrown hair?
Ingrown hairs are hairs that have curled around and grown back into your skin instead of rising up from it. That forces the hair inside it to grow sideways under the skin, rather than upward and outward. DPL Hair Removal will not cause ingrown hairs.
