What is the best solution to unwanted hair growth? Find out all the advantages of the IPL treatment.
Excessive hair growth is a problem affecting a great number of both men and women. From the beginning of puberty women resort to shaving, a method offering very short-term results. On the other hand, waxing is a very painful experience offering short term results as well, whereas electrolysis (hair removal with a needle) is effective, though painful and time-consuming.
So, what is the permanent solution to excessive hair growth?
The permanent hair removal with Palomar IPL offers you: -A permanent result, as pulses of light weaken the hair and deactivate the cells within the hair follicles responsible for the growth of new hair -A fast procedure, as small areas such as the armpits or the upper lip can be treated in less than 10’, whereas larger areas, such as the back may be treated in less than 1 hour -A comfortable process, as the cooling methods make the pulsed light treatments safe and painless
-Contrary to the other hair removal ways, such as waxing, Palomar IPL has an extra advantage: you don’t have to leave your hair growout between sessions -An effective treatment which guarantees you full and long-lasting reduction of unwanted hair
The IPL hair removal procedure
With Palomar intense pulsed light system, the doctor uses special handpieces which filter the light from different parts of the light spectrum. Those Palomar smart heads target at hair follicles. The pulse light is absorbed by their dark pigment and is converted into heat. This heat makes the hair fall and deactivates the cells responsible for growing new hair.
Pulsed light treatment can be applied on any face and body part, except from the eyes which are a very sensitive area. During the procedure, the trained staff moves the handpiece on the skin. The head emits pulses of light on it and the patient feels the heat only slightly.
After the hair removal treatment
1. After the procedure, you may have a mild sunburn sensation and minor swelling. This usually lasts 2- 4 hours and can be treated with a moisturizing cream or ice cubes. 2. The area treated will still keep some of its hair for about 30 days. This hair is not new and will gradually disappear. 3. You will need more than one session as hair is not always in the growing phase, the ideal phase for treatment! In some areas hair is stronger, e.g. on the upper lip, so you will certainly need extra sessions:
-For the upper lip and chin: 6-8 sessions
-For the face: 4-6 sessions
-For the bikini line: 5-7 sessions
-For the armpits, legs and back: 4-6 sessions.
