Tired of shaving, razor burn, ingrown hairs and bumpy skin? At Suite 103 Aesthetics we offer Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatments for permanent hair reduction on all body parts and all skin types and colors. A series of treatments is required with little to no downtime as the light energy is absorbed by the hair follicle while surrounding tissues remain intact and unaffected. Temporary side effects may include redness and swelling but usually subside within a few hours following treatment.
How IPL Works
Visible broad spectrum light energy from the IPL device is absorbed by the melanin pigment in your hair follicles. This damages the follicles and prevents them from regrowth. Hair growth is cyclical and only those hairs in the growth cycle will be affected by the IPL treatment, therefore, it is important to adher to the recommended treatment plan timeframe in order to achieve your best result. On average, 9 to 12 treatments are necessary to obtain a successful result which is approximately an 80% reduction of hair loss in the treated area. Treatments are usually conducted every 2 to 10 weeks depending on the treatment area (ie. 2 weeks for facial treatment, 8 to 10 weeks for back and legs).
IPL treatments are not effective on gray, red or blonde hair as they lack melanin which is the dark pigment absorbed by the intense pulse light energy. Tanning and sun exposure should be avoided prior, during and after your IPL treatments. Schedule your free consultation with us to discuss if you are a suitable candidate for IPL hair reduction! Pricing dependent on the area to be treated and the number of treatments which will be discussed during your consultation.
