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:
- 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.
