Winter – the Perfect Time for Hair Removal!

Tired of shaving? Embarrassed about the shadow of hair even after you’ve shaved?
Winter is the perfect time to change things for the better! Intense pulsed light hair removal is a safe, painless and effective way to get rid of unwanted hair.

How does Intense Pulsed Light work?
Our system uses specialized hand pieces which filter light from different parts of the spectrum. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as hair reduction. The hand piece emits pulsed light into the hair follicle. The light is absorbed in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.

What areas of the body can I get treated?
Any areas of the body, except directly around the eyes, can be safely treated.

What are the treatments like? Is it painful?
A mild sensation is felt; no numbing of the skin is required. The hand piece will be moved over the treatment area, pulsing light every few seconds. The cooled treatment-head helps soothe and protect your skin while pulsed light and energy penetrates the skin to destroy the active hair follicles.

How many treatments are necessary?
Because hair follicles grow and regrow in a cycle and growing follicles are most susceptible to treatment, multiple sessions are required to achieve full effectiveness.  However, significant hair reduction is often noticed after one or two treatments.  6 -8 treatments spaced 2 -10 weeks apart, depending on the area, is recommended to ensure hair removal.

What else do I need to know?
All skin types can be treated safely with our technology.  It is recommended that the skin not be tanned which is why winter is a great time to begin treatment.  Also – hair does not have to be left on the skin to be removed – shaving or clipping of hair can be done as often as desired.  No waxing, plucking or depilatories can be used for 2-3 weeks before treatment or during treatment.

Are treatments for women only?
Absolutely not!!  Many men are self conscious of excess hair on their backs, or suffer from painful red bumps after shaving their necks.  Hair removal is the perfect solution for these and other problems.  Many men have been very satisfied with our discreet atmosphere and professional service.
