Discover all about pulsed light – The most frequently asked questions on pulsed light

How does pulsed light depilation work?

Waxing involves removing temporarily or permanently the hair from the skin of men or women.

Pulsed light is a device that sends a light that will be directed by the black pigment of the hair, and the light will turn into heat and burn the hair root.

It is this phenomenon, at the level of the root of the hair, which alters the regrowth. The hair gets tired and regrows less because the root is altered.

The permanent hair removal with pulsed light is achieved by means of a “flash lamp” which diffuses intense pulsed light. This light reduces up to 90% of the hair by using the hair pigment.

How long is a depilation session?

A pulsed light depilation session is very fast because the device used has a continuous flash system, which allows us not to wait 2 to 4 seconds between the emission of each flash.

It takes less than 10 minutes for an underarm session and up to 30 minutes for a leg session.

What is the difference between pulsed light and laser?

Pulsed light or laser have the same action on the hair, but according to different techniques: The pulsed light emits different types of light, while the laser emits a single light that acts on a precise target. The laser is a radius that can only be used by doctors. With a depilatory laser it only targets hair by hair, so it makes hair removal with pulsed light allows hair removal on a larger surface, radiation is less powerful, so it takes more sessions, laser 3- 4, and pulsed light 6 on average. The pulsed light still remains cheaper to the package.

Can we use the pulsed light epilator on all parts of the body?
