IPL Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform laser hair removal. IPL hair removal uses coherent, monochromatic laser light with Radio Frequency to remove hair for all skin color, all hair color and is virtually pain free.
IPL hair removal is a fast way to reduce hair growth with effectiveness, because it targets the pigment and destroys the whole hair follicle, eliminating the risk of ingrown hair.

Why do you need more than one treatment?
There are different stages of hair growth cycles. When you have in the active growth stage, you should have a treatment, if your hair is not currently growing, you should wait for the hair to grow again. After a series of treatments, you will see less and less hair grow. Some people will come back a year later for some new stragglers that are now in active phase of growth. No one knows how many hair cycles a person has, but the goal is to have a dramatic hair reduction.
How many treatments does it take and how long in between treatments?
We recommend that you start with a series of 6 treatments, spaced out based on the hair growth patterns; typically 4 – 6 weeks.

What is the aftercare?
You might be a little red around the area for up to 3 days, depending on your skin. Do not wax or use any hair removal products on the area, you may shave in between. The hair will shed and fall out a few weeks after the procedure. Not all the hair will shed that’s why more than one treatment is needed.
How long does the treatment take?
Depending on the area, it is a very quick service.
