IPL permanent hair removal

The Palomar® Pulsed Light Hair Removal 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 Removal system is comfortable and safe. 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 Removal System is perfect for treating large areas of unwanted hair, and it can be used on most skin tones.

Pulsed Light Hair Removal is a safe and effective laser hair removal procedure. Pulsed 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:

  • Permanent Hair Reduction
  • Quick Treatments
  • Removes Hair before it becomes visible
  • Mess-free
  • Can be less expensive in the long run
  • Helps clear up ingrown hairs
  • Removes shadow in hair bed area

What are pulsed light hair removal treatments like?

Your therapist will move the hand piece 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 do I need to do before my treatments begin?

  • You will need to have a complimentary consultation
  • Antibiotics or Cortisone needs to be discontinued at least 2 weeks prior treatments.
  • No Sun exposure, Self-tan or Solarium for four to Six weeks prior to the commencement of treatment.
  • No waxing, plucking or bleaching for four weeks prior to your treatment.
  • Shave the area to be treated a day before your treatment.

What should I expect after a treatment?

  • Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation.
  • The treated hair will continue to appear for 7-30 days post-treatment. This is not new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expelled from the skin.
  • Typically, several (6 or more) treatments once every 4 weeks will be necessary to achieve permanent hair reduction.
