Intense Pulsed Laser (IPL) is a safe, effective, and relatively painless way to permanently reduce hair. Women often take advantage of IPL treatments to help remove unwanted hair on their upper lip, chin, cheeks arms, underarms, bikini and legs. Men use IPL to help reduce hair in the nose and ears, as well as between their eyebrows and on the back of their necks. Although IPL is very effective, full results are not immediate. You will need 4-6 treatments, each approximately 4 weeks apart.

When will I see results from IPL Hair Removal?
You should see some results after your first Intense Pulsed Light hair removal treatment. Nevertheless, because your hair grows in cycles, 3-6 Intense Pulsed Light sessions are typically required to reach the desired effect. The hair that does grow back after your Intense Pulsed Light treatment, should be thinner and lighter in colour, and with multiple IPL hair removal treatments, you should see a significant and lasting reduction in hair growth in the areas treated.
Will Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal Work for Me?
Intense Pulsed Light hair removal is not suitable for all complexions and hair colours. It is most effective for those with fair-to-medium complexion and darker hair. IPL is less effective on white, blonde and other light-coloured hair.
Plan your Intense Pulsed Light hair removal treatments around holidays and other times of year when you will have to expose the treated areas to sunlight. You should avoid direct sunlight on the areas 4 weeks before and after treatment.
