Laser Hair Removal
Get rid of unwanted hair on your face and body for irresistibly smooth skin
Everything you need to know about your hair removal treatment.
Hair removal treatments are for individuals who want to permanently reduce unwanted hair on their face or body because they’re tired of the conventional methods that only yield temporary results.
For safety reasons, you may not be able to get diode laser hair removal if you have/are:
Previous problems with laser therapy
A history of keloid scarring
Active infection or history of herpes simplex in the treatment area
Use of depilatories or other hair removal treatments, such as waxing, plucking, or electrolysis, within 6 weeks prior to treatment
Hypersensitivity to hydroquinone or other bleaching agents
Use of oral Accutane within 6 weeks prior to treatment
You may not be able to get IPL laser hair removal if you have/are:
Metal or other implants in the treatment area
Current or history of cancer
Pregnant or nursing
Any diseases that can be stimulated by light (e.g. epilepsy)
History of disease that can be stimulated by heat (e.g. herpes)
Poorly controlled endocrine disorders (e.g. diabetes or polycystic ovary syndrome)
Any active condition in the treatment area (e.g. eczema, psoriasis, rash)
History of skin disorders, keloids, unusual wound healing, or excessively dry and/or sensitive skin
Any surgical procedures within the past 3 months
A tattoo or permanent makeup in the treatment area
Excessively tanned skin
For laser hair removal, most patients receive 6-8 treatments per area. The exact number will depend on each individual person’s skin type, hair color and texture, and the area being treated.
For IPL hair removal, you’ll likely need 6-10 treatments per area, again depending on each individual person and the area being treated.
Treatments are done 4-8 weeks apart for laser hair removal. For IPL hair removal, treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart for the face and 4-8 weeks apart for the body. Because hair grows in three stages, you want to try your best to avoid missing a session.
The applicator has a built-in cooling feature to make the treatment as comfortable as possible, but you might feel a bit of discomfort if you’re treating a more sensitive area, like along the bikini line. If you find it too uncomfortable, let your treatment provider know and they can adjust the settings accordingly.
