An Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy approach to eliminating unwanted hair provides the ultimate treatment solution "PhotoEpilation." Unlike many other treatment methods, PhotoEpilation leaves your skin looking and feeling smoother and softer.

How does PhotoEpilation work?

Without damaging the surrounding skin, controlled flashes of light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the hair follicles. The heat damages or destroys the potential for regrowth. Because of the significantly large spot size created by this unique technology, backs, shoulders, abdomens and legs can be treated quickly. Facial areas such as the lip, chin, and beard, can be treated in minutes.

Who are candidates for treatment?

Men, women and children may be treated with IPL Treatments can be customized according to your hair color, texture, and body location. Hair of any color - black, brown, and red - can be treated. Treatment is effective on all skin types, including dark-skinned individuals of all ethnic origins. To find out if you are a candidate, ask to schedule a consultation.

What are the benefits?

The FDA approved this technology for permanent hair reduction. A customized program can be designed along with an estimate of how many treatment sessions you may need.

  • Less pain and discomfort compared to other treatment methods
  • Large areas can be treated quickly.
  • Chances of scarring and pigmentation changes are minimized.

What is treatment like?

First, the area to be treated is cleansed, the hair is shaved, and a cool gel is applied. Through the IPL hand piece, gentle pulses of light are emitted and penetrate the skin to begin disabling the hair follicles. Each pulse may feel like a snap of a rubber band or a slight sting or pinch. Most of the hair wipes off immediately; the remaining hair falls out over a period of a week or two.

Are there any possible side effects?

Side effects are rare. Blistering, soft scabbing, or redness sometimes occurs at the treatment site, but resolves quickly or within a few days. In certain cases, the skin could become slightly light or darker. You will be notified during you consultation if you are susceptible to these side effects. For 2-4 weeks before and after treatment, you must limit your sun exposure. This will greatly minimize the risk of complications.
