What is IPL?
IPL is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses high-intensity pulses of light (not laser light) to diminish and remove the appearance of unwanted hair.
Can unwanted hair be removed from anywhere on the body?
IPL works on all skin types . It can be applied to most facial and body parts, including: eyebrows, chin, upper & lower lip, jaw line & sides of the face, breast & underarms, abdomen, full bikini, bikini line, legs and back. Based on a personal and confidential consultation, our techician will design a treatment plan that addresses your specific hair removal needs.
How is the session set up?
The duration of the hair removal sessions varies as it depends on the surface to be treated. A session can last from 10 minutes to 1.5 hours for just one area. The interval between sessions gets longer as the treatment progresses. The number of sessions varies according to the area but also from one patient to another. The area to be treated must be carefully shaved before the session so that the tip of the hair is at the surface of the skin (1mm length for hair). Waxing may have also taken place during the 8 weeks preceding the hair removal session. However, for the information visit, it is recommended to preserve some hairiness so that the technician can assess the situation and the PTL indication.
What results can I expect?
Each treatment session with IPL will reduce the amount of hair that will grow back. Furthermore, the new growth will be more and more clear, thin and slow. More than one treatment is necessary to reach all the follicles of an area. Most people obtain satisfactory results after four to eight treatments, but these results vary according to medical and genetic factors. Light hair can require more treatments than dark hair.
The cost of your treatment
The cost of hair removal varies according to the surface of the area to be treated and according to the duration of the treatment. The initial consultation is free. The price of your treatment varies according to the number and size of areas to be treated. The eventual treatments of more than one area during one session will reduce the cost of the treatment
What does a typical IPL consultation entails?
You will meet with our technician and she will determine if you are a good candidate for IPL treatments. The technician will want to know about your medical history, examine your skin, and discuss why you are considering IPL. Then, she will explain to you what can and cannot be treated with IPL. You may be asked to have a spot test done to see if your skin reacts well to IPL. The technician will also advise you on about how many treatments will be needed to achieve your goal. You should also ask about the risks associated with IPL, as well as the cost.
How should i prepare for laser hair removal?
First of all, don’t use waxing, depilatories, or any other form of hair removal other than shaving for at least 4 weeks before your first session, and don’t use them again until after the treatment is completed (though they shouldn’t be necessary afterwards!) Also, the area must be clean shaven.
How old do you have to be to receive laser hair removal?
In general, it’s best to wait until the end of puberty. This is because as hair is removed, new hair will develop which will require treatment at a later date.
