It’s highly advised to receive hair removal treatments from trained aesthetic professionals, not within the home. IPL/lasers are medical devices approved by the FDA for what they are intended to do. Over the counter/internet products are not as strong, less effective and most of the hair that was lost grew back in a few short weeks. A little over 30% saw less hair growth but in 12 weeks the hair that was lost grew back. The reason being is the home use device stunted hair growth but did not disable the hair follicle.
Anyone who struggles with excess hair may be a candidate for hair removal. Excessive hair growth can happen due to hormones and/or aging, medications, obesity, and certain diseases. Eighty-five percent of women over the age of 35 reports having excess hair growth.
Best results occur for patients who have dark, coarse hair on their bodies. Anywhere on the body that has dark coarse hair. The most common areas are lip, chin, underarm, bikini, and Brazilian (all hair is removed in the intimate area).

Treatments on the face take a couple of minutes and areas on the body up to 30 minutes. People find the treatment relatively painless. Past patients have claimed it feels like a quick rubber band snap that only lasts less than a second. Many say it is less painful than waxing.
We want to get the hair in the growth phase called anagen. During the anagen phase of hair growth, the hair is still attached to the follicle. The heat from the light follows the hair into the follicle and damages the root. The root can no longer produce hair. If the hair is in the right growth stage the hair usually falls out in about a week. Patients can then expect to see permanent hair removal.
Usually, patients will receive six treatments spaced apart. For the face, treatments are spaced out every 2-4 weeks, and 4-6 weeks for places on the body.
You will experience minimal downtime after treatment. The area can be pink for a few minutes afterward and sometimes tiny bumps will appear on the skin. Hair removal does not cause ingrown hairs like shaving and tweezing.
Before your treatment, you want to stay out of the sun or tanning beds. Be aware of any medications you are currently taking because some medicines cause light sensitivity. Shave before all appointments. The reason being is the light will have a shorter distance to follow the hair allowing more heat to reach the follicle and root. After treatment, there should be no tanning or sun exposure for at least a week.
