Prevent Ingrown Hairs - Ingrown hairs can cause discomfort, infections, self-consciousness, and even scars. Laser hair removal alleviates temporary inflammation and prevents new ingrowns. Perfect for the sensitive bikini, face, and neck areas.
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.
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, patients 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 5-7.
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.
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.
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.
