The Palomar® Pulsed Light Hair Reduction system is a revolutionary new way of removing small and large areas of unwanted hair, especially on the legs of women and the back of men. Unlike painful electrolysis or waxing, the Palomar Pulsed Light Hair Reduction system is comfortable and safe. The Palomar Pulsed Light Hair Reduction System is unique in that it uses light energy to disable or destroy hair follicles, the part of hair responsible for growth. Because more than one hair is targeted at a time, the Palomar Pulsed Light Hair Reduction System is perfect for treating large areas of unwanted hair, and it can be used on most skin tones.
Pulse Light Hair Reduction is a safe and effective laser hair reduction procedure. Pulse Light involves pulses of light that are directed into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.
Benefits of Pulsed Light Hair reduction:
What are pulsed light hair reduction treatments like?
Your treatment provider will move the handpiece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. You may experience a feeling similar to that of a rubber band being snapped on the skin, but most people do not report this sensation as painful.
What body areas can be treated?
Any area, except around the eyes. The upper lip, face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, chest and back can all be treated.
