Question:

Will ipl or laser permanently remove blonde hair on the face

Answer:

IPL or laser are attracted to the melanin in hair, and this forms the basis of hair removal. Blonde hairs, even dark blonde hairs, don’t usually have enough melanin (in comparison to that found in the skin) to allow the laser or IPL to target it.
