frequently asked questions

How does IPL work for hair removal?

This IPL targets the pigment located in the hair follicle and shaft. The light is absorbed by the pigmentation in the hair follicle and this energy is converted to heat, which results in damage to the hair follicle. This damage causes delayed re-growth of hair and in most cases, permanent destruction of many of the hair follicles. Unlike electrolysis, which disables one hair follicle at a time, the laser reaches and treats hundreds of follicles at a time.

Does it hurt?

IPL/SHR technology provides treatment with minimal discomfort and is virtually pain free.

How may treatments will I need?

We recommend 6-8 treatments. In fact, it is no uncommon for a person to need six or seven or more. There are a variety of factors that can influence the number of treatments any individual may require to achieve the desired results.

What will I look like/how red will I be after the treatment?

Post treatment reactions vary depending on the coarseness, density. colour of the hair, and the area being treated. In general terms, most patients experience redness similar to a mild sunburn.
