Hair Removal for Dark Skin: Why It Works

Hair Removal for Dark Skin: Why It Works

Up until now, the advances of at-home hair removal technology have failed to deliver on lasting hair removal for dark skin. Although some devices have been approved for light and medium skin tones, those with darker skin have not had access to a safe and effective form of at-home hair removal. Until now. Introducing at-home hair removal for dark skin: Dual Wave Technology (or IPL + RF). The new reality.

How Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) + Radio Frequency (RF) Technology Works

What makes this technology different? How does iluminage capture this energy for effective hair removal for dark skinned beauties?! This technology is safe for usage on dark skin because it brings together Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Radio Frequency (RF) energies. These groundbreaking technologies use the intense pulsed light (IPL) to target and warm the melanin in hair follicles. Once follicles are warmed up, it applies radio frequency pulses (RF). RF seeks out these warmed follicles and delivers a second round of growth reducing energy. The combination of IPL and RF can deliver permanent hair removal for the widest variety of hair colors and skin tones – with impressive results in as little as 7 weeks.

Long Lasting Hair Removal for Dark Skin

Lasting hair removal for dark skin is simple! After just a bit of prep, the iluminage system goes to work and can deliver smooth skin and gentle hair removal results in as little as 7 weeks. Here’s how the process works:

  1. Select an energy level
  2. Press the activation button
  3. Hold the applicator against your skin
  4. Slide the device to a new area after each visible flash of light
  5. Continue treatment for 2 to 10 minutes depending on the area of the body that you’re focusing on

The treatments are simple, and the results are safe and clinically confirmed. The nice thing about using the iluminage is that you only treat once a week for the first 7 weeks; then, typically switch to monthly maintenance after that. Plus, treatments may take as little as 2 minutes to complete! Even if you’re removing hair from multiple areas of your body, the overall time commitment is far less than shaving every couple of days – and the results last much longer.
