If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be your answer!
Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorbs the light, thereby destroying the follicle so the hair cannot grow back.
- Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
- 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.
- Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It delivers broadband light through the skin for rejuvenation. IPL helps restore a youthful looking skin intended for photo aged or sun damaged skin. It helps decrease facial redness, lessen the appearance of pigmented spots, and help improve acne, reduce pore size and improve texture and fine lines. IPL can eradicate red facial veins and flushing, improve acne rosacea, treat irregular pigmentation, dark sun spots, and reduce fine facial lines.
