Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) for Hair Removal

Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments rejuvenate the skin by reversing signs of sun damage such as age spots and broken capillaries and is also used in the removal of unwanted body hair. IPL technology uses high-energy pulses of light to provide long-lasting results.

It improves skin texture and appearance and removes hair from any area of the body without damaging nearby tissue. Hair, veins or pigmented regions on the skin surface selectively absorb the pulses of light, shrinking or fading after treatment; collagen tightens, smoothing the skin. Patients can return to work and all regular activities immediately after the procedure. Skin appearance should improve soon after treatment. Hair loss is immediate and long-lasting. Several treatments may be desired for optimal results.
