Hair belongs here, but not there. If you are troubled by unwanted hair in any area, Laser Hair Removal provides a permanent solution. You’ll be able to toss your razor, avoid painful and time-consuming waxing appointments, and never pluck again. IPL Laser Hair Removal provides an effective solution to facial and body hair and works for all skin tones.
We perform Laser Hair Removal with our Palomar IPL ICON system, the best hair removal technology on the market. During this non-invasive approach to hair removal, light from the IPL wand penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the melanin, or pigment, in the hair follicles. The light’s heat destroys the hair follicle and causes the hair to fall out. The IPL light can affect hair follicles only when they are in the growth phase, which means additional treatments are needed to catch more follicles as they enter this phase. Typically patients will require 6 treatments to achieve full results. Once the necessary series of treatments has been completed, these results are permanent.
Because the IPL light targets pigment in the hair follicles in order to destroy them, darker hair responds well to Laser Hair Removal. However, this treatment usually is not a good option for blond, white, or gray hair because the laser beam has no target color that can be isolated.
It all depends on the hair type and color. On average 6 treatments is typical. Clients with darker skin coloring or fine/light hair will need 1 or 2 additional treatments.
Multiple visits are important to achieve optimum results due to the hair growth cycle. For face and neck, treatments are performed every 4-6 weeks. For body, treatments are performed every 6-8 weeks.
We will manage your return visit for you based on your previous treatment so that you will achieve the best outcome. Simply, notify the scheduler that you missed your last visit and we will find the appropriate week to return.
You may shave the area 1-2 days prior to the laser therapy. No tanning or waxing/tweezing 4-6 weeks prior to your treatment.
Most patients report minimal to no discomfort. A snapping sensation is felt for less than 2 seconds with each pulse.
A mild sunburn look and sensation may last for a few hours.
*Individual results may vary.
