IPL Laser Hair Removal

It seems just about everyone has unwanted facial and body hair. We have the perfect solution: laser hair removal! Laser hair removal is an increasingly popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. It is a non-invasive, convenient method to reduce hair growth.

At Exclusively Faces, we use the state-of-the-art Palomar laser IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal machine. Using the advanced Palomar system, hair can be removed from any body surface, with any skin type.

Laser Hair Removal Benefits
  • A non-invasive technique that reduces undesirable hair from most parts of the body.
  • Treats larger areas effectively because it disables more than one hair at a time
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Replaces waxing, electrolysis, shaving and bleaching
  • No downtime
The Process

Depending on the area being treated, the process may take anywhere from several minutes to several hours to complete. In most cases, minimal pain should be experienced and no anesthesia is required.

The IPL itself actually feels like the snapping of a rubber band. Most people tolerate the procedure well. You can resume your normal activities as soon as the treatment is finished.

Occasionally patients may experience slight redness of the skin or mild swelling around the hairs. Sunscreen is recommended for any area treated that may be exposed to the sun. Note that this procedure will not work for blonde or gray/white hair.

Results

The results are not immediate. Laser hair removal is an ongoing process that requires multiple sessions because it only affects actively growing hair, and not all hair follicles are active at the same time. Four to eight treatments scheduled one month apart are usually needed to remove most unwanted hair. If hair does grow back, it will be finer and lighter.
