Hair Removal For Red Hair: Why It Works

Hair Removal For Red Hair: Why It Works

If you have red hair, you may be a bit skeptical about the effectiveness of hair removal technologies. As a redhead, chances are you've endured some pain or frustration in your previous attempts at hair removal. Shaving is time consuming, and waxing can be downright painful. After all, past innovations in hair removal technology haven't left you any closer to the smooth skin that you desire! So, why don't most hair removal solutions work for you? Existing methods of hair removal work by targeting and warming the melanin (what gives your hair color!) found in hair follicles, but as someone with red hair, your follicles don't contain enough melanin for most hair removal solutions to work correctly! Good news, this new innovation in hair removal is effective and safe for you to use!

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 redheads?! Groundbreaking technology uses 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 – including red – with impressive results in as little as 7 weeks.

The Removal Process

Permanent hair reduction for red hair can be just weeks away for you! Here's a quick look at the simple, easy and painless removal process: In order to achieve the best results possible, it's recommended that you either wax or epilate the area that you wish to treat prior to using.
  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.
