IPL: Are you a good candidate?
Unwanted body hair is a pain to get rid of - literally. Plucking and waxing involves ripping the hair out from the roots, making it a painful procedure. Because of this, a lot of skin care treatments have been introduced. One of the most popular is the Intense Pulsed Light procedure or IPL.
Though considered to be among the safest, less risky and most effective of treatments, IPL may not always work for you. To make sure your skin and body will react positively with IPL, it is crucial that you determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure.
These are the conditions wherein you might not be a good candidate for IPL procedure:


IPL also has imperfect existence

hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin condition in which some areas of the skin turns darker in color. The reason is too much melanin on the skin. Though the condition is normal, it may lead to liver spots and age spots. On the other hand, hypopigmentation occurs when the body skin does not produce sufficient melanin which also produces undesirable skin tone. If your skin easily gets keloid or scars every time you get wounded (even slight lesions and cuts), this means that you don’t react with burns well and you might not be a good candidate for IPL.


Diabetes greatly affects the body’s capacity to recover from wounds. IPL may cause burns on your skin and if you have diabetes, it may take longer time for them to heal.


This treatment is not advisable for pregnant women as well as those who plan to conceive. Although there’s no direct effect on the baby inside the mother’s womb, IPL may be affected with hormonal changes which often occurs during pregnancy.


People below 18 years
Young men and women are not advised to undergo IPL because they’re still going through hormonal changes.

People with implants

People with implants like in the breast and cheeks should consult their doctors first before submitting themselves to IPL.
