The hair removal process takes place through coagulation of the hair follicles. During the hair’s first growth phase there is a high concentration of melanin, which makes it more susceptible to energy absorption and coagulation. Hair removal is possible for many different hair colors, including gray hair. This light-based treatment removes hair in three ways:
- Coagulating the melanocyte and matrix cells, which ruins the hair follicle
- Clotting the follicle capillaries with heat energy
- Triggering matrix cells to operate calcium pumps and exhaust the cell’s energy, resulting in inhibition of the cellular metabolism
Primarily used for boosting collagen, treating brown spots, and diminishing broken capillaries; photofacial is a term for a skin treatment that uses light-based technology. IPL photofacials stands for Intense-Pulsed Light, which is a kind of photofacial that delivers a bright blast of light at very high energy levels through a hand-held device.
