Hair removal

Many patients come to Akademikliniken for the treatment of unwanted hair. We have a lot of experience in hair removal and for this we use IPL, intense pulsated light.

IPL emits a harmless long-frequency red light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicles. There, it transforms to heat and at 70°C the protein inside the hair follicles that are in the growing phase of the growth cycle is destroyed, and new hair cannot grow. On most parts of the body, 20-30% of all hair is in the growing phase and therefore 4-6 treatments are usually required.

Most hair- and skin types are treatable with IPL, apart from white, grey or red hair. The general rule is the darker the hair and the fairer the skin, the better the result.
