Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal is transforming hair removal by using IPL with SmartPulse technology to reduce unwanted hair on the face and body. Hair removal treatments are powered by IPL technology, which targets the pigment under the skin's surface. They tend to work best for light to medium skin tones with darker hair. The treatment may work on darker skin tones, but there is a higher risk of discoloration because darker skin has more pigment in it. It may also not work on very light hair, because the hair doesn't have enough pigment in it to absorb the light. It's best to consult with your treatment provider to see if the treatment is right for you. They will perform a test spot and wait between 15 minutes to 48 hours, depending on your complexion, to assess your skin's reaction.
Intense Pulsed Light with SmartPulse technology delivers light deep into the skin with real time cooling to ensure your protection and comfort. As the energy is absorbed it destroys the imperfection it is targeting and slowly it disappears. The treatment works by delivering energy to the deeper layers of the skin to target the hair pigment and destroy the follicle. SmartPulse™ technology ensures safe and consistent heat distribution, while a real-time cooling system works to keep your skin protected from the heat.
Following your treatment sun protection will be applied. You must avoid direct sun exposure for 48 hours post treatment.
You may feel like you have a mild sunburn immediately after treatment but you can resume to your daily activities immediately after.
