Unwanted hair is stubborn. You shave, pluck, wax, tweeze, and bombard it with harsh chemicals akin to Agent Orange and it goes away. But then it’s back. You hack it away again. And it comes back again. It’s all very Sisyphusian.
It’s more stubborn than your mother-in-law. And that’s saying something.
Dr. Lavey has the answer to stubborn unwanted hair — Intense Pulsed Light Hair Reduction.
What is IPL hair reduction?
Dr. Lavey uses the Palomar laser for hair removal. Invented in the 1990s, the Palomar Laser is FDA-approved for hair removal and is the laser that all other hair removal lasers are compared to.
In the treatment, Dr. Lavey sets the laser to certain wavelengths corresponding to the person’s hair color and thickness. Then the laser delivers very short bursts of energy down onto the hairs. This energy is absorbed by the hair, running down the shaft into the hair follicle. There, the energy damages the follicle precluding it from growing hair either permanently or at least for a long period of time.
The Palomar IPL treatments do not last long and are more comfortable than many other laser hair removal treatments. These IPL treatments can be used on the unwanted hair on the chest, legs, bikini line, underarms, back, and face.
Human hair has different growth cycles, so the various hairs across the body can be in different phases. The “growth” phase is the optimal phase for damaging the follicle. Hairs treated in other phases will require additional treatments to fully damage the follicle.
