IPL Hair Removal in Vancouver
TRUSTED SPECIALISTS AT PACIFIC PLASTIC SURGERY
The Lumenis® IPL Hair Removal treatment is a safe, non-invasive treatment that permanently reduces hair growth, resulting in smooth, beautiful skin. Our unique IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology targets the hair follicles and impairs their ability to grow hair. IPL hair removal is effective on black, brown and red hair.
Highly controlled pulses of light are applied on the treated area and are selectively absorbed by the hair follicles beneath the skin surface. The absorbed light heats the hair follicles, which damages the re-growth potential of the follicle – all without damaging the surrounding tissue.
When will I see results?
The Lumenis® IPL Hair Removal treatment is generally administered in a series of four to six sessions that yield excellent long-term results. Significant hair reduction is already visible after the first session.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you may experience some slight redness or swelling of the treated area. This is a positive clinical result which indicates that the follicles have responded to the treatment. You should be able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. Our Laser Specialist will advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sunscreen.
