There’s no doubt that Intense Pulsed Light treatments have changed the beauty industry as we know it. Hair removal and common skin concerns such as uneven skin tone and pigmentation are just that much easily resolved, with the procedure being largely painless and fuss-free.
If this is the first time you’ve heard of IPL, though, fret not: you’re definitely not alone. And besides, with Daily Vanity here to give you a quick crash course as to what this light treatment is all about, you’ll be a pro by the time you’re through with this piece.
What is IPL?
IPL actually stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a form of technology that is used for aesthetic treatments such as hair removal and the treatment of several skin conditions. The procedure most often involves using a high-powered computer-controlled flashgun to deliver an intense, visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light that targets specific structures and chromophores. This, thus, aids in curing common skin and hair concerns. We’re talking hair removal in sensitive parts, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and even visible broken capillaries along your skin.
So, naturally, we were both thrilled and apprehensive when we heard about a renowned Japanese IPL centre giving away free IPL shots for a day. Still, we couldn’t help but wonder: what’s the catch? And are there any requirements to getting these free IPL shots? With our curiosities sufficiently piqued, we decided to do some investigating to find out more about the IPL centre in question.
As it turns out, the IPL centre is Japan IPL Express, Singapore’s first unisex IPL centre.
