FAQs

What is the difference between an IPL and a laser?

  • IPL, or "intensed pulsed light" is marketed as laser hair removal by some practices, however it is not laser.  It is effective for numerous skin conditions, including the treatment of dark spots, but clinical research and our experience show that a true laser is the more permanent solution to hair removal. 


​​How many laser hair removal treatments will I need?

  • There are three main cycles of hair growth: anagen, catagen and telogen. Laser hair removal affects hairs in the anagen (active) phase of growth.  Thus, clients need multiple treatments in order to disable each batch of hair as it enters the active phase of growth.  The average number of treatments for most areas is 6-8.  

  • Face usually requires more frequent treatments (about 4-6 weeks apart) whereas legs and back need less frequent treatments (8-10 weeks apart). 

  • Studies have shown that many patients can achieve permanent hair reduction of up to 85-95% and remaining hair returns lighter and softer.


Why does laser hair removal not work for blonde, red, gray or white hair?​

  • The laser is attracted to pigment (melanin) in the hair causing the follicle to overheat and disable it.  Since there is no dark pigment in these hair colors, the laser cannot see it and cannot cause the reaction needed to disable the follicle.

  • We have tested every laser technology for hair removal on the market and there is no laser technology that can effectively treat these hair colors.​


Pre/Post Laser Hair Removal Treatment Care

  • The area to be treated should be shaved before a treatment so the energy is targeted towards the hair follicle and not wasted on the hair above the skin's surface.
  • Do not not wax, epilate, tweeze or remove hair with the root using any other hair removal​ method for at least 6 weeks prior to the first session and throughout the course of treatments.  The hair root needs to be in place in order to be targeted by laser as laser devices target the pigment in the hair.  Shaving is still ok. 
  • Avoidance of tanning treated areas 4 weeks prior to treatments is extremely important.  Tanning activates our skin's melanocytes (melanin containing cells), attracting too much laser energy to the surface of the skin, potentially leading to adverse reactions. 
  • After the treatment some redness and slight swelling may be present in the area that has been treated; however, this should subside within a few hours.  Applying cool compresses and cooled pure aloe vera gel help soothe the skin. 

  • Although rare, if any prolonged redness or swelling occurs, consult your clinician.

  • Keep the treated area clean and use at least SPF 30 sunscreen when outdoors.
