How laser hair removal works

The IPL works by targeting the growing dark hair follicle. Patients with dark hair and light skin are the best candidate.

A Beam of light glides across the skin targeting the pigment in the hair follicle. The controlled energy is absorbed and heats up the hair follicle. This safely destroys the follicle preventing or delaying future hair growth.

All hair removal requires a series of treatments. The time between treatments will vary depending on the area. On areas where the hair grows quickly, like the upper lip, the treatments can be every 6-8 weeks. In areas where the hair grows slowly treatments are up to 3 months apart.

How to prepare for hair removal treatment

  • Stay out of the sun & avoid tanning and self-tanners
  • Avoid plucking, waxing or electrolysis
  • Trimming or shaving the hair is recommended the day prior to the procedure

What to expect during the treatment

The clinician will slowly glide the IPL device over your skin. The IPL will continuously fire. The treatment will be comfortable due to the cooling tip. The energy from the IPL is absorbed by the follicle, heats up and damages the ability of the follicle to produce a hair

After the procedure

The hair will not fall out immediately and some patients feel there is an increase in growth initially. Over a period of days to weeks the hair will shed. Repeated treatments are needed because hair growth and loss occur in cycles and the device works best when hair is actively growing.

How many treatments will be needed

Results vary significantly and can be difficult to predict. Most people experience hair removal that lasts several months and years for some others. But IPL hair removal does not guarantee permanent hair removal. Maintenance is required.

When it does grow back it is usually thin and fine.
