Laser and IPL Hair Removal are considered a light based technology labeled by the FDA as "Permanent Hair Reduction". It does not work on everyone. For the individuals that it does work on, it is pretty amazing.

Who is a good candidate?

Ideal candidates for laser hair removal have lighter skin and darker hair. The pigment in the hair follicle absorbs the light energy increasing the temperature of the follicle creating a thermal reaction. 
As long as the hairs are dark and the roots are dark, the laser IPL will work. A consistant series of treatments is required to complete the process.
Who is not a good candidate?

Grey, white, red and blonde hairs do not have much pigment. The laser or IPL  will not create enough heat to destroy the source of growth.  
Dark skinned individuals are also not good candidates because their skin could become the target of the laser instead of just the hair follicle.

How many treatments does it take?

It can take from 4 to 10 treatments depending on the color of the hair, the location and how consistant you are with your treatments. Treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. 
This will be discussed in greater detail during the consultation.

Laser IPL or Electrolysis?

For larger areas and areas with dense thick hairs, laser IPL would be great as it is quick and easy. Some of our most popular areas include; bikini, underarms, legs, arms, feet and toes, faces with dense dark hairs, breast, etc. 

What do I expect during the treatment?
We will mark the area that you want treated. Hair will be shaved. You will be given appropriate protective eyewear. The skin will be chilled with our built in chiller and then the light will be pulsed through the skin. Each hair will feel like a slight pick. It is so quick you will find the treatment pretty easy.  Our system is extremely comfortable when compared to traditional laser and the results are equal if not better.

To assure that your hairs have been treated properly, we will be looking for specific reactions:

~ You will feel the little picks.
~ The hairs will singe
~ There will be a little follicular edema around each hair that will resemble a bug bite. 

Immediately following your treatment, we will calm your skin with a cool roller. Your skin may feel like a slight sunburn sensation which can last from a few minutes to a few hours depending on the area treated and the density of the hair.
Written home care instructions will be given.

Hairs on face will fall out within one week. Hairs on the body can take up to 3 weeks to perge. If the hairs don't fall out, it is not working! Regardless of how strong someones laser is or how may times they treat you, if the hairs don't fall out, IT IS NOT WORKING.

Rest assured, I can definitely help to rid you of your excess hair growth problem. If you are not a candidate for our light based treatments, electrolysis would be the answer. Give me a call to discuss your options. Most people wish they had started long before they finally do. 

 Electrolysis is the only licensed method  allowed by the FDA to use the term "Permanent Hair Removal" which  is universal and works on everyone. A complementary analysis and consultation will reveal your treatment options. 

What is laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal and IPL are  procedures that use the energy of a pulsed light to destroy the source of hair growth. It goes through the skin and is attracted to dark colored pigment. Once the energy is absorbed by the hair and follicle, a thermal reaction takes place that renders the follicle inactive.

What is the difference between laser and IPL?
Both laser and IPL create a thermal reaction within the hair follicle to destroy the source of growth. They are licensed and insured  the same.  How the light is delivered is what is different. Laser is extremely hot and a very quick narrow light pulse. IPL is not as hot and released at a slower timing and a wider pulse. This makes the treatment much more comfortable and safe. They both reach the desired tissue temperature, just with a different formula.
Laser has a round spot size and IPL is square and larger spot size.
Quite often clients come in who had previous treatments at a different business and think they had laser treatments. FYI, if it is a square spot size, it is IPL.
We find our IPL  treatments to be extremely effective and most comfortable without the need for topical anesthetics.

Are all IPL devises the same?
No, some are more powerful than others. Our equipment is the strongest pulsed light system in the world. Our built in chiller and smooth pulsed system allows for more comfortable and more effective treatments.
Our hand pieces are replace regularly providing you with the most effective treatments possible.

Is it a one time thing?
No, laser hair removal and IPL, just like electrolysis, requires a series of treatments. Because of the various cycles of hair growth, all the hairs do not appear at the surface of the skin at the same time. It can take several months before all the hairs come to the surface of the skin to be treated for the first time.

How often do I have to come for treatments?
Because of the stages of hair growth, it is extremely important that your treatments are scheduled consistently to make sure all the hairs get treated at the new hair growth cycle.
For the face, treatments are scheduled  4 weeks apart. For the body, 6 weeks is recommended.

Can anyone have laser hair removal treatments?
NO. Laser hair removal and IPL is for selected individuals. It is effective on hair that contains dark pigment. It is not effective on white, blond, or red hair. Very dark skinned individuals are not candidates, although our IPL laser allows us to treat some darker skin toned clients. We would have to test patch you. If you also have white hair on the area to be treated, electrolysis is the only solution.

Can my eyebrows be treated with laser or ipl?
Absolutely not. We do not treat within the orbital bone area which surrounds the eye. Our hand piece is also too large to be able to do this. Although a laser's diameter can go down to the spot size of a straw, it is highly unadvisable to use it near the eye as it could cause injury. Electrology is the only way to permanently treat the eyebrow area.

I get bad ingrown hairs. Can laser IPL help?
Yes. We have had wonderful results treating ingrown hairs. IPL works great for ingrown hairs in the bikini area, neckline, under arms, face, the list is endless. After just a couple treatments, the results are fabulous. (There is a doctor who has a complete web site on ingrown hair problems. His magical cure is exactly what we do...IPL.) 

Before we begin treatment, we release all ingrown hairs with a sterilized instrument. We utilize the same standards of sterilization and sanitation for our laser IPL treatments as we do for electrolysis.

What if I also have white hair on the area to be treated?
What good is the treatment if you still end up with white hairs? The only option for white hair is electrolysis. We often have clients come in and have electrolysis for the few white hairs before their laser IPL treatment.
We have also had several individuals who had laser and or IPL treatments elsewhere but were referred to us to complete the process with electrolysis.

Can the white peach fuzz on my face be treated?
 In order for the light source to be attracted to it a hair, there must be dark enough pigment in hair and deeper in the hair follicle. Only electrology treatments can permanently stop light colored hairs from regrowing. With electrology, the color of the skin or hair does not matter.
The clients with skin tones and hair colors that do not qualify for laser can get permanent results with electrolysis, the universal method of hair removal that does not discriminate.


Q.Why do I have to wait 6 weeks between treatments for body areas (bikini, under arm, etc.) but only 4 weeks for facial areas?

A. Hair grows faster on the face than it does on the body. Because we want to get the hairs as they are new and just emerging to the surface of the skin, four weeks is best for the face.
As for body areas, if we treated you at 4 weeks instead of 6, you would  not get the best results as it takes longer for the hair to regrow on body areas.  Remember, Laser and IPL needs the target to get results. The hair present in the skin is the target. Prematurely treating at only four weeks would not allow for optimum results. 

Laser IPL treatment is best when the treatments are consistent to get the hair in the proper stage of growth to achieve the best results. Of course it would be more convenient if you are having facial work and body work done to do it at the same time, but the  results make it worth the extra two week wait.

Certified Laser Technician

"Our clients are loving our  laser IPL equipment. I am so happy to be able to make such a difference in their lives!"~ J. Allen

"PCOS or hormonal issues? Our laser (IPL) with or without electrolysis is the Cure. A series of four to six treatments and a reasonably priced maintenance program can change your life".

What to expect:
~ Treatments are only given after the client has had a thorough consultation.
~ Because of our patented cooling  and smooth pulse technology, our treatments are most comfortable and do not require any additional desensitizing agents as many traditional laser hair removal devices do.
~ You will first feel the cooling of the skin and then the application of the laser  light. While pain tolerance is subjective, most clients describe the feeling as "a slight sensation of little pics". It should never be too uncomfortable.
~The area to be treated will be shaved. This allows all the energy to be directed to the hair below the skin where the source of growth is located. In 2 to 3 weeks the hairs will all fall out.

~ End ingrown hair problems
~ End the need for shaving, waxing or tweezing.
~ Hair is permanently reduced. It reduces the texture and amount of the hairs.
~ No down time.

Things to know:
~ Redness may occur, but will go away a few minutes to a few hours after treatment. After treatment instructions are available.
~ If the hair problem is hormonal, an inexpensive maintenance program may be required.
~ If pregnant - no treatments. Hair removal may continue with electrolysis.
~ Positively no tanning, sun exposure or use of sunless tanning products.We recommend SPF30.
~ You may shave between treatments. No tweezing or waxing. The hair is the target. No hair = no target.
~ It is not effective on blond, white or red hair.
~ If you have black skin, you are not a candidate for laser IPL. Electrolysis would be your solution.
~ Expect an average of 4 - 6 treatments for facial hair and 6 - 8 treatments for body parts. 

How do I prepare for Laser IPL Hair Removal?

  • Stop tweezing, waxing, or pulling out the hair in any way for
       one month before your treatment.
         This can be a  most difficult first step but is worth the hassle.
          You may trim or shave in  between treatments.

  • If it is an area you are shaving, do not shave for two to three days to allow a growth so the operator can see the true color and texture of the hair to be treated. It also makes it easier to see random hairs. Dark hair is the best target. The laser IPL does not see red white or blond hairs so electrology would be the best solution for those hairs.

  •  Positively NO TANNING.
        You must be out of the sun and tanning beds for a minimum of 6 - 8 weeks.
        Develop a habit of  consistently using an SPF30 or greater. 

  • No sunless tanning lotion for at least a couple weeks prior.
          Any fresh pigmentation on the skin will attract the IPL light and could result in a burn or blister. Be sure to exfoliate well.

  • When scheduling your treatment. If you are having your bikini area treated, schedule so you are not having your menses when you come in. 
  • If you are pregnant, we will not do laser IPL on you until after delivery.

  •  If you have Herpes I or Herpes II, a prophylactic is required before treatment. The IPL will not give you herpes but if you have the virus in your skin, IPL can bring it out just like the sun does.
