Unwanted hair is just that, unwanted. And it’s such a pain to get rid of time and time again. You pluck, tweeze, shave, wax, and use harsh chemical warfare all in the quest for smooth, hair-free skin.
So, why not ditch the creams and razors and get rid of the hair permanently with Dr. Lavey’s Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal treatment?
What is IPL hair removal?
Our IPL hair removal system was invented by Palomar in the 1990s and is the gold standard for laser hair removal. The system allows for specific wavelengths to be set to correspond to the patient’s skin type, hair thickness, hair color, and other variables.
Here are some benefits of the Palomar IPL treatment:
- Better outcomes
- Long-lasting results
- Quick treatments
- Reduced discomfort
How does it work?
Once the wavelength has been set, the Palomar laser delivers very short pulses of high-energy light at the targeted hairs. The hair absorbs the light energy and it converts to heat. This heat travels down the shaft of the hair into the hair follicle. There the heat damages or destroys the follicle, precluding it from growing hair in the future. Thanks to the accuracy of our laser, our hair removal treatments are much more comfortable.
Where can you have hair removed?
Because our Palomar laser is very accurate, it can be used all over the body. Popular removal areas are the chest, legs, bikini line, underarms, back, and face.
How many treatments are necessary?
The hair all over your body is in different stages of the growth cycle. For optimum effect, the hair must be in the anagen (growth) phase. That’s the reason a series of treatments are necessary, so that we can catch all of the targeted hairs in the anagen phase. How many sessions you will need is individual to your situation.
