Frequently Asked Questions Regarding IPL or Laser Hair Removal

What areas of the body can be treated? Virtually all areas of the body can be treated.

How many treatments does it take to accomplish hair removal? Most patients see permanent hair reduction after 5 treatments. Hair grows in cycles, requiring repeat treatments at monthly intervals. Reduced growth may be seen after 1 or 2 treatments. Typically, growth is minimal or slower for the first 2 weeks following treatment, then comes in more normally as the next hair cycle phases in.

How often do treatments occur? For best results, treatments should occur at 4 to 6 week intervals.

Is the hair removal permanent? All IPL and laser  systems are FDA approved for permanent hair reduction. This means that there is a permanent decrease in the amount of hair growing, but that fine or light hair may remain, and that new hair may eventually grow. There is no absolutely permanent method of hair elimination at this time.

Who can benefit from IPL hair removal? The best results are obtained with lighter skin and darker hair. We are unable to treat darker skin types with the IPL. Neither IPL or laser can treat white, blonde. or gray hair.

Can I be treated while I have a tan? No, your skin must be untanned in order to safely receive an IPL treatment.

What does hair removal treatment feel like? Most people report that IPL feels like a quick rubber-band snap. We pre-treat the skin with cold gel to minimize discomfort.
