Intense Pulsed Light is used to target areas of unwanted hair growth. Over the course of a treatment series, the treated hair follicles are damaged, preventing them from growing new hair. Hair goes through different phases, and the treatment is most effective during the growing phase. As your hair grows at different times, it will take several treatments to permanently remove all of the hair. While this treatment works best on lighter skin tones and darker hair, we also have alternative laser hair removal options that are safe for all skin types.
During laser treatments, the hair follicle is altered by performing a series of laser pulses over the area, either permanently removing or replacing the unwanted hair with a vellus (fine, light-colored) hair. IPL laser hair removal can eliminate up to 85 percent of dark coarse hair. Almost any area can be treated with minimal discomfort and virtually no down time.
