With laser hair removal women no longer need to fuzz with plucking, waxing or messy depilatory creams to rid themselves of unwanted hair. Dr. Lipeles can do that for them, permanently with the most advanced IPL (intense pulse light) therapy to do the job. This simple office procedure uses a laser that passes a beam of light energy through the skin to individual hair follicles. The intense heat produced damages the follicle, inhibiting future hair growth. The IPL laser enables Dr. Lipeles incredibly precise control so that only hair follicles, not nearby tissue, are damaged. Because laser hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, several treatment sessions are typically required to provide a patient’s desired hair reduction. Depending on the hair density and size of the area treated, between 2 and 6 treatments are usually sufficient.
Hair removal is effective on most body parts. Among those most frequently treated are the:
Each area of the body is usually completed within 30 minutes, making it easy to fit into most women’s schedules. In addition, there is absolutely no downtime. Patients can return to their daily activities immediately following treatment. The treatment causes only minimal discomfort. The IPL system Dr. Lipeles uses is known as the only pain-free hair removal system. Patients often liken the sensation to the feeling of a rubber band snap.
Most patients – between 70% and 90% – do enjoy permanent results. Laser hair removal is generally most effective on darker colored hair. In addition, hormonal changes might cause hair to return, in which can it can easily be retreated. Patients can expect to have between 1 to 3 treatments per area for permanent hair removal.
