Questions & Answers

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

The hand piece emits a very specific light at a wavelength that is targeted at melanin in the hair and/or at the follicle growth center (called the hair bulb). Melanin is the material that gives color to our hair and skin. The laser beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. This damages the follicle , there it is unable to support the growth of new hair.

Who is this treatment best for?

Almost skin type can be treated safely with the IPl , except for darker skin types , however the ideal candidate for this procedure has hair that is darker than his or her skin color.

How many treatments will I need?

The average patient starts with 6-10 treatments to see significant results, future treatments may be required for maintenance, especially when treating areas on the face or for male patients due to hormones.

How long will the procedure take?

What kind of results can I expect?

The hair will look as if it is growing normally after each session and then will gradually fall out over a 2-5 week period; this may or may not be a noticeable process. Often the hair looks to be about 25% reduced after just one session, with shaving becoming much more manageable as well. After other sessions, the reduction will not be as drastic as after the first treatment, but will the hair will be steadily getting finer, more sparse and grow more slowly.
