IPL Hair Removal for Beards
IPL Hair Removal for Beards
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Removal is the process of removing a person’s hair by using a high-powered, hand-held, computer-controlled flashgun. This procedure delivers an intense, visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light, generally in the visible spectral range of 400 to 1200 nm to permanently remove hair. This technology is used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments, for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes alike. IPL shares some similarities with laser treatments, in that they both use light to heat and destroy their targets. But unlike lasers that use a single wavelength of light, IPL uses a broad spectrum that when used with interchangeable filters, making it usable for against several conditions.
You would typically think that this procedure only targets the female demographic, but that’s not the case. Men are also attracted to the fact that they can permanently remove some of their body hairs. And that includes their beards.
Removing The Beard: Should You Or Not?
For some men, their beards are the symbol of their manliness. Without it, they may feel bare, vulnerable, and worst, naked. Some may even take care of it far better than how they take care of their natural hair. Grooming it with different kinds of beard oils, maintaining it by regularly taking it to the barber when it gets too long for their liking, some men can’t get enough of their beards.
Meanwhile, on the flip side of things, some men may also find their beards as a distraction. If there are people who can’t live without it, then there are equally some who can’t stand even growing a beard. They may find their beards as a messy part of their faces, and that is why they couldn’t wait to get rid of it. Removing a man’s beard will most definitely make them look younger. Take the Asian men demographic for an example. Most of them want a clean-shaven face, which in result emphasizes their youthfulness. Some may even look as young as a teenager yet when their real age is that of the 30s. That is how impactful a man’s beard can be.
Can I Get Rid of my Facial Hair Using IPL Hair Removal?
The real question here is whether you want to or not. IPL Hair Removal can ultimately get rid of your facial hair as long as it is brown or black, and you have a healthy skin. That is because IPL or any light device of that matter, does not work well with blonde, grey, or red hairs. Put it just, the process of IPL hair removal can get rid of your facial hair. Before undergoing the said procedure, might as well ask yourself these questions:
- Do I want to go through with it?
- A man without a beard may look weird for some people subconsciously, am I willing to continue with that fact?
- I might look a whole lot younger than my actual age, is that okay for me?
Once you have your answer, then you will know that you are really up for it. That is now the time to go with the operation; you are now ready to remove your beard entirely.
