Just like how dark or black shirts absorb heat, the melanin found in the hair absorbs the light from the IPL. These certain amount of light are then, turns into heat which gradually damages the hair and stops the growing process of the hair. Continuous IPL treatments destroy the hair and thus, permanently result in hair removal.

Permanent hair removal is possible almost to everyone, but it still would be best if you will communicate with your dermatologist to know if the process is suitable for your specific skin and hair color. According to the experts, IPL treatments work best for people who have white or pinkish skin and dark hair color.
