How to Permanently Remove Pubic Hair at home?
Life as an adult isn’t always the carefree fantasy we imagined as children. It often revolves around working, paying bills, and dealing with changes in our bodies as we age. Part of getting older is gaining weight, developing wrinkles, and, frustratingly, increased growth in body hair.
No one enjoys the process of dealing with hair removal, and it’s worse because it never really ends. Waxing, shaving, threading, tweezing, and all the other conventional methods are temporary solutions. Eventually, the hair will grow back and you will have to remove it again. For some people, this means dealing with hair removal every single day. It can be especially uncomfortable when you have to remove pubic hair.
Keeping or removing pubic hair is a personal choice, and we support every person’s decision, no matter what it is! Being comfortable with having lots of pubic hair is great, but if you prefer a different look, then dealing with pubic hair removal can be a real annoyance. The skin in the pubic area is more sensitive than the skin in other areas, so any cuts, razor burns, or ingrown hairs that occur as a result of shaving or waxing are much more painful. Unfortunately, it’s pretty much inevitable that these things will happen at some point when you use conventional methods.
Most people have heard of the newer hair removal methods like laser treatment and electrolysis, which last much longer than methods like shaving and waxing. The tradeoff is that it can take many expensive clinic visits over the course of several months to complete these treatments.
But what if you could get the same effective treatment at home?
What is IPL hair removal?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal is a long-term method of hair removal that is safe, effective, and convenient. It’s often confused with laser treatment, but they are actually two different treatments based on similar principles.
In the years since its inception, IPL has become very popular and seen improvements in the technology used. Today, people all over the world can use IPL for safe removal of unwanted body hair. IPL can also be used for skin imperfections like freckles, wrinkles, and dark spots with surprising success.
How does IPL work?
IPL works by directing very bright flashes of light from something called a “high-output flashlamp” in the device. The melanin in the hair absorbs most of the energy from these light flashes, and this damages the hair follicle. Damaged follicles are unable to continue growing, so this process effectively halts hair growth permanently.
What to Expect
The precise results of IPL treatment will be different for every individual. The texture, thickness, and color of the hair affect how well the hair absorbs the light energy, which in turn affects the treatment results. Fortunately, most people have pubic hair that is thicker, coarser, and/or darker than the rest of their body hair, which makes it easier to remove with IPL. IPL is often the perfect treatment option for removing pubic hair.
Benefits of IPL Treatment
IPL treatment offers a lot of benefits over other, more traditional hair removal methods.
Convenience - IPL treatment for pubic hair is generally pretty fast. The bikini line, for example, normally takes only 5-10 minutes to treat.
Long-lasting - While traditional hair removal methods force you to deal with constant regrowth of the hair, IPL lasts a very long time, and you do not have to worry about dealing with regrowth very often. After a full round of IPL treatment, hair does not grow back for a very long time, sometimes years. When and if hairs do eventually grow back, it is often very slow, and they are finer and less noticeable than before.
Fewer side effects - Shaving, waxing, and other similar methods can cause ingrown hairs, burns, cuts, and other skin problems. IPL is not harmful to the skin, so you are saved from cuts and razor burns. Because this treatment works by damaging the hairs at the follicles, the occurrence of ingrown hairs is impossible. This makes IPL much more comfortable for your skin than other methods of hair removal.
Using IPL Treatment at Home
When IPL was first invented as hair removal treatment, it was only available in a dermatologist’s office. It required appointments and expensive visits to remove hair with IPL. Since then, the technology has improved a lot, and it is not possible to use IPL treatment yourself, in the comfort of your own home.
IPL home devices can be a great, convenient way to permanently remove your pubic hair. Home devices are perfectly safe when used according to directions and with appropriate precautions, and you get the same smooth, hairless appearance that in-clinic treatment offers.
These days there are tons of IPL home devices available, produced by tons of different companies. Some are much higher-quality than others, so you should research a product thoroughly before buying it. Some of the things to consider are:
Energy level - IPL home devices normally have 4 or 5 energy level settings, with level 1 being the weakest and level 5 being the strongest. It’s important to start with the lowest level when using an IPL device for the first time. As you get comfortable with the device and establish that your skin is not sensitive to it, you can increase the energy level.
Light pulses - The number of pulses used by an IPL device affects the lifespan of the device, so look for a device with a higher number. These will last longer than devices with low numbers and be an investment that you will be pleased with for many years.
Size of window - The window of an IPL device is the glass section that contacts your skin during the treatment. Larger windows cover larger surface areas, so for treating a small area like the bikini line or pubic area, you only need a small window. A 2-3 cubic cm window is sufficient for pubic hair IPL removal.
Skin and hair type - The effectiveness of IPL treatment depends on the color and texture of the skin and hair. Dark hair on light skin is the easiest to remove with IPL, and some devices may not be safe for certain skin and hair combinations. Check the device description to see whether it is safe for the kind of skin and hair you have.
Warranty - Devices that offer warranties at purchase tend to have a higher quality than those that do not, and you have a guarantee of replacement or repair if you encounter problems with your device.
IPL is a simple, effective, and safe way to remove pubic hair permanently from the comfort of your own home. You can purchase an IPL home device online today to ensure that you’ll never have to deal with uncomfortable, expensive, short-term treatments again.
