IPL Laser Permanant Hair Removal

IPL laser is also used in several series for hair removal for the face, underarms, back, and legs. A treatment plan will be discussed during the initial consultation. The treatment is a permanent solution after all treatments have been completed.

IPL Laser Therapy

IPL Laser is an intense light therapy applied in a series of gentle pulses over the treatment area. IPL improves the appearance of sun damaged skin, age spots, skin texture, fine lines, enlarged pores, photo aging and rosacea. This treatment involves little or no down time. A series of treatments are recommended, some patients see significant difference in 1-2 treatments. The lesion will darken before it flakes of, or is absorbed by the body. Follow up treatments may be desired once a year to maintain results. Treatment areas include the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, back, and legs.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.

Benefits of laser hair removal include:

Precision Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

Predictability Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is more than just ''zapping'' unwanted hair.

If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That's because the laser targets the hairs' roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.

You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

Just before the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.

Depending on the laser or light source used, you and the technician will need to wear appropriate eye protection. It will also be necessary to protect the outer layers of your skin with a cold gel or special cooling device. This will help the laser light penetrate the skin.

Next, the technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings were used and to check for bad reactions.

When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or cold water to ease any discomfort. You may schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later. You'll get treatments until hair stops growing.
