Hair Removing Creams and IPL; Which Should You Choose

If you want to get rid of unpleasant unwanted hairs from your body, there is a diverse variety of options to remove hairs either temporarily or permanently. Almost all temporary hair removal methods are simple, easy, cheap, and painless except for very painful waxing.

On the other hand, permanent hair removal methods are difficult, expensive, and need professional skill to perform except for IPL which is performed with smart and handy IPL devices at home.

Hair-removing creams or depilatory creams are commonly available in the market with different names and qualities. They are very easy to apply and remove to get silky smooth skin in less than 5 minutes but hairs are grown again in 3-5 days. Contrary, IPL is done at home with any IPL device available in the market to remove hairs permanently.

Depilatory Creams for Hair Removing:

Initially, for depilation and hair removal, hair removal powder was available in the market, after that, it took the modern shapes of creams with better customer compliance. It was discovered as an alternative hair-removing method to shaving. It is a chemical-based technique for hair removal.

Working of Hair Removing Creams:

Hair-removing creams are easily applied to the skin without any special skill. There is a chemical in the hair-removing creams called thioglycolic acid that breaks the bond between proteins called keratin, which makes hair strands with different bonds.

Application of Hair Removing Creams:

It is very easy to apply and remove creams and you will feel good if you follow the following instructions;

Clean the surface for hair removal

Apply the cream on that area evenly

Leave it for 3-4 minutes

Remove the cream gently with a warm and damp towel

Thoroughly clean the surface with plain water.

Do you think that if you leave the cream for a longer time, it will increase the longevity of the hair removal method? The answer is no because if you apply the cream for a longer duration, it will cause skin burns and skin allergies.

Pros of Hair Removing Creams:

A huge population of males and females are using hair removal creams as a temporary method to get rid of unwanted hair because;

  •         It is a very speedy process and it takes 5-10 minutes from start to end
  •         It is really cheap and easily available in all grocery shops
  •         The use of hair removal creams is very easy treatment as compared to other hair removal methods
  •         With hair-removing creams, hairs become softer as compared to shaving but less soft as compared to waxing.

Cons of Hair Removal Creams:

Just like all hair removal methods, hair removal creams have also some disadvantages such as;

  •         The worst thing is the smell of all hair removal creams due to the presence of chemicals. Although the manufacturer adds some fragrance but unable to get rid of the foul smell
  •         Sometimes manufacturers add harsh chemicals to get the best results and they either irritate the skin or cause allergy to the skin
  •         Hair removing creams does not directly affect the roots therefore hair removal is short and temporary.
  •         If creams react with the skin, it may cause painful sensations and become worrisome.

To check whether hair removal creams are the best choice for IPL hair removal, you should have a brief introduction about what IPL hair removal is.

IPL Hair Removing:

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and it is a permanent method of hair removal. IPL is carried out by different IPL devices available in the market. It is a relatively difficult procedure as compared to hair removal cream.

Working of IPL Device:

IPL uses laser light to damage the hair roots by attacking melanin pigment in the hair follicle. Therefore, it takes a lot of time to regrow hairs, and hairs are removed permanently after 4-5 sessions.

Application of IPL:

Hairs are removed from an area for IPL treatment. Then the soothing gel is applied on it and an IPL device is used to damage the hair roots. It is suitable for small areas while professional IPL is suitable for larger areas.

Pros of IPL:

IPL is the most common way to remove hair nowadays because;

  •         It is very convenient and customer-friendly
  •         It removes hairs permanently
  •         It does not cause severe pain
  •         It has multiple power settings for different skin tones and hair textures

Cons of IPL:

IPL is the great invention of the time but it has the following cons;

  •         It is not suitable for darker skin tones and hair colour
  •         It takes time and professional devices to carry out the procedure
  •         It also needs professional skills to do IPL and requires regular sessions
  •         You need to purchase the device at once, which can be heavy on your pocket.

After making a comparison between both methods, it has been observed that hair removal creams are cheap, easy, and take less time to remove hairs temporarily while IPL is used to do permanent hair removal but it is costly, difficult, and takes longer time.
