Intense Pulsed Light is a light based technology used to get rid of unwanted hair on the face and body. It works by destroying the hair follicle under the skins surface, which stops it from growing. The result is smoother, hair free skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?

Hair removal treatments work best for light to medium skin tones. The treatment may work on darker skin, but there is a higher risk of discoloration because darker skin has more pigment in it. It’s best to consult with the technician 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 skin tone, to assess your reaction to the light

  • Can I do it during my lunch break?

You may be able to, depending on what part of the body you’re getting treated. If it’s a smaller area, it may only take as little as 15-30 minutes. A larger area, like two full legs, may take up to 60 minutes.

  • How many sessions will I need to see results?

Most patients receive 6-10 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person and the area being treated.

  • How often/far apart should the treatments be?

Treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body.
