Treatment Description: Every hair on the body goes through three stages of growth-the growth phase, the dormant phase and the fall-out phase. Doctors and medical science agree that the only time a hair can be permanently disabled is when the hair is in the growth stage. Since hair enters its growth phase at different times, multiple treatments are necessary to disable these hairs. Recent studies have shown that typically five to eight treatments are necessary to destroy the majority of hair in any given area, but patients can see results after a few treatments as their hair tends to become thinner and lighter even after two or three treatments.
How IPL Works: Intense Pulsed Light systems work by emitting pulses of intense pulsating light into hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and is converted to heat. The heat loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for new hair growth. Since the light penetrates the skin, you do not need to let your hair grow out in preparation.
