Does IPL Photofacial remove hair?

Yes, however, this is not a common use for an IPL Photofacial. When it comes to hair removal, laser hair removal is the optimal treatment if permanent hair removal is the main objective. This is because laser hair removal uses a single spectrum light which can more precisely and deeply penetrate the skin to target hair follicles. In contrast, IPL uses a multi spectrum light which is typically weaker and more scattered than the single spectrum light. As such, an IPL treatment is best used when treating conditions closer to the skin’s surface, such as broken capillaries, dark spots, and/or skin redness, and is not the ideal treatment for someone seeking permanent hair removal.
