Your IPL Laser Hair Removal begins with lubricating
the area that will be receiving treatment. As the laser moves over the treatment area, energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. All of the treated hair follicles are disabled in less than a second. Depending
on the size of the area being treated, the procedure can take from a few minutes to a few hours.
It is a common misconception that you should let your hair grow out before receiving Laser Hair Removal. Although
you should not tweeze, wax or use depilatory creams 2-3 weeks prior to your laser hair removal treatments, it is recommended you shave on the day or two days before your appointment.
At the end of your laser procedure, the treated area is cleansed and you can return to your normal activities. Sunscreen should be used on any area
exposed to the sun. A special natural SPF may be recommended for your specific skin type as well.
Redness and swelling around the hair follicle of the treated area 20 minutes to 24 hours after treatment is a normal
if any, of the treatment process.
Painless, Safe and Effective. Smoother, Hairless Skin.
Patients who are exposed to the sun, use tanning beds or spray tan, take medications such as Retin-A or antibiotics, or have
recently had a chemical peel are more vulnerable to more serious side effects such as hyper and hypo pigmentation or scarring. Be sure to tell your technician if any of the above applies, before starting treatment.
