IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Removal

Let's face it, excess body hair can be unsightly and embarrassing. Shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide temporary fixes that are inconvenient, irritating, messy and only temporary. Electrolysis is time consuming, sometimes painful, and is useful only in removing hair from small areas.

The latest breakthrough in hair removal is IPL technology or Intense Pulsed Light. This exciting technology offers a gentle, long-lasting solution to unwanted hair on the:

  • face
  • back
  • legs
  • bikini line
  • or any other body area

Excess and unwanted hair is a common problem. Women frequently experience this condition on the face, especially the upper lip, in the bikini area, under the arms or on the legs. Men often wish to rid themselves of hair on their back or chest. They too may have unwanted hair between their eyebrows or on other parts of their face.

How it Works

IPL technology uses highly controlled flashes of light energy to safely and effectively eliminate unwanted hair without harming the surrounding skin tissue. Its unique method of photoepilation uses a broad spectrum of light to penetrate the targeted hair structures deep in the dermis. The light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and converted to heat, disrupting the follicle's ability to produce hair. In fact, clinical studies have shown that hair may not grow back for up to a year or more in some cases.

IPL technology offers the patient and physician significant benefits over existing hair removal procedures. For the patient, IPL hair removal provides skin safety, excellent results, fast treatment time and few, if any, side effects. The physician can adjust and customize treatments according to the particular body area and specific hair and skin type of the individual patient.
