Intense Pulsed Light (IPL®) technology offers a gentle, noninvasive, long-lasting solution to unwanted hair on the face, back, egs, bikini line or any other body area. Based on technology used for nearly a decade in the treatment of port-wine stains and other birthmarks, IPL photoepilation has been performed safely for many years, effectively eliminating dozens of hairs with each pulse.
How Does IPL Remove Hair?
Highly controlled flashes of light are selectively absorbed by hair-filled follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages or destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle. All without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Can All Hair be Treated?
IPL’s unique design offers you customized treatment according to your hair color, texture and the location of body hair. Any hair with at least some pigment in it (black, brown, red and even blond) can be treated effectively.
Is IPL Safe for All Skin Types?
IPL is the first photoepilation procedure proven to effectively treat unwanted hair on all skin types, including dark-skinned individuals such as those of Black, Hispanic and Asian descent.
What Kind of Results Should I Expect?
IPL technology has been proven to create a permanent reduction in the number of regrowing hairs following each treatment in most skin types. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to your specific kind of hair and skin. A customized treatment program will be designed for you along with an estimate of how many treatments you may need in order to meet your expectations.
