Laser Hair Removal

What is IPL hair removal?

Intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal is a method for getting rid of unwanted body hair. Being smooth-skinned and hairless is definitely in style, but with shaving and waxing the trade-off is often razor bumps, cuts, or pain. IPL hair removal at Luminance Laser Spa yields longer lasting results than its alternatives, so you won’t have to constantly worry about maintaining your hairless skin.

How does hair removal work?

IPL hair removal uses intense pulsed light to get the job done. The light is so intense that it can penetrate deep into your skin to target the follicles that your hair grows out of. The energy from the light heats the follicle to disable it from continuing to grow hair and vaporizes the hair itself to leave you hairless.

It may take multiple sessions to achieve full hairlessness initially, but after your first few sessions, you’ll enjoy smooth skin for months or even years at a time.

What areas can I target with IPL hair removal?

You can target nearly any area of your body that grows unwanted hair with IPL hair removal. Patients frequently choose to remove hair from their:

  • Full face
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Arms and armpits
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Bikini line
  • Brazilian area

Men and women alike can enjoy the results of a hair removal treatment at Luminance Laser Spa and target any unwanted area of hair that makes them less than confident without covering up.

Does hair removal with IPL come with any side effects?

This method of hair removal is effective and generally very safe, but there are a few side effects to note before you begin treatment. They include:

  • Mild discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Irritation
  • Skin color change

These side effect usually subside one to three days after your treatment. If you notice anything more severe or long lasting, like infection, blistering, or scarring, you’ll need to call Luminance Laser Spa immediately. For your best chance at a smooth recovery, you should protect your skin from sunlight and follow all other aftercare instructions from your provider.
