Laser Hair Removal Q&A
What is IPL for Laser Hair Removal?
The light that comes out of an IPL device is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, causing a buildup of energy which turns to heat. The heat travels down the hair and disables or destroys the cells that make new ones. Utilizing concentrated light beams to destroy the hair follicles truly removes it from the root. Each pulse of light is an incredibly narrow, specific wavelength of energy that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The process gradually heats the melanin and hair follicles with effective heat buildup to destroy the hair for long-lasting results.
How many IPL Treatments are Required for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser Hair Removal treatments are quick and easy, only about 30-45 minutes per treatment, perfect for a “lunch time” procedure since there is no downtime. The required number of treatments for long lasting results is 6 to 8 treatments, with occasional follow-ups to maintain your results. IPL is safe for all skin tones and is a non-invasive procedure. That means you’ll never have to deal with shaving, ingrown-hairs, irritating razor burns, or embarrassing cuts. IPL is even safe for your most sensitive areas, such as the face and bikini region so you can be beach-ready all year long!
Are there any restrictions on my activity after treatment?
After your treatment, the affected area is cleansed and you may return to your normal activities immediately. We may recommend that you use a skin care regime specially formulated for your skin type after laser treatments. As always, it is a good idea to limit your sun exposure. The use of a good sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas that will be exposed to the sun. This is discussed in more detail during your consultation.
