I have olive toned skin, is IPL ideal for hair removal on my skin?
Is IPL Laser Hair Removal Safe for Olive Skin?
Doctor Answers (1)
IPL permanent hair removal may be performed on olive-colored skin.
The best candidate for IPL permanent hair removal has snow-white skin, and coarse, black hair. As long as your hair is fast-growing, thick and dark, you should do well with IPL permanent hair removal. You may require up to 10 treatments to achieve 75%-90% permanent hair reduction.
I hope this is helpful for you.
