Intense Pulsed Light
How It Works
Our painless IPL technology uses a broad band pulsed light source and has multiple clinical applications because of its ability to reach variant depths of the epidermis. In order to remove hair permanently, heat generated via light energy is captured by the melanin contained in the hair follicle which then destroys the hair follicle without damaging the skin. Ideal for fair skinned individuals with dark hair.
We can treat all regions of the body and the face. The most common areas include underarms, groin region, legs, arms, back, upper lip, sideburns, beard, and chest. It is to be noted that we offer different packages and it is possible to treat one or more areas during the same session.
Some of our most popular packages are our Head to Toe package that covers the entire body in one session and our Full Body package that includes popular areas such as full legs, brazilian and underarms.
Number of Sessions Required
On average, 6 to 10 sessions are required. However, results may vary depending on your skin and hair type.

It is asked that you arrive to your appointment with a fresh shave (24 hours prior) and without any lotions or creams on the region to be treated. In case you miss a spot your skilled technician will use a disposable razor to make sure that no hair interferes with the treatment. Shaving the region stimulates the pigment of the hair and helps avoid the risk of micro burns. Do not wax, pluck or use electrolysis prior to your appointment. The use of photosensitizing medications needs to be stopped at least one month before your first treatment.
Sessions should be scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the treatment area. It should be noted that shaving is permitted between sessions and the skin must be shaved before each appointment. Minimize sun exposure to the areas in treatment and a mineral sunscreen should be applied to said regions daily.
IPL hair removal should not be performed on sunburnt, blistered, or broken skin. It is preferred that pregnant or nursing women postpone this type of treatment, as well as anyone who has been exposed to the sun the month before each session (tanned skin). The use of tanning booths, or photosensitizing medication is prohibited as are waxing, tweezing and electrolysis in the area to be treated.
