IPL Hair Removal
What is it?
The Lumenis® IPL Hair Removal solution The Lumenis® IPL Hair Removal treatment is a safe, non-invasive treatment that permanently reduces hair growth, resulting in smooth, beautiful skin.
The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology targets the hair follicles, and impairs their ability to grow hair. IPL hair removal is effective on black, brown and red hair.
Is it safe?
Developed by the pioneer of aesthetic medicine and trusted by leading professionals around the world, the Lumenis® IPL Hair Removal treatment is FDA cleared. Lumenis energy-based treatments must be performed by a physician or an authorized provider in your region. Energy based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.
How does it work?
IPL Hair Removal technology Highly controlled pulses of light are applied on the treated area and are selectively absorbed by the hair follicles beneath the skin surface. The absorbed light heats the hair follicles, which damages the re-growth potential of the follicle – all without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Before treatment, your clinician should closely shave away the hair in the treated areas and apply a cold gel. As the pulses of light are applied to your skin, you may feel a slight stinging or warm sensation. When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area sheds over the next week or two.
When will I see results?
The Lumenis® IPL Hair Removal treatment is generally administered in a series of four to six sessions that yield excellent long-term results. Significant hair reduction is already visible after the first session.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you may experience some slight redness or swelling of the treated area. This is a positive clinical result which indicates that the follicles have responded to the treatment. You should be able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
