What Areas Can Be Treated With IPL?

IPL can remove hair from all parts of the body including the face, legs, arms, underarms and back. It can also treat sensitive areas like the chest, nipples, and bikini line.

What Do IPL Treatments Feel Like?

When the pulse of light is delivered, some patients experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required.

How Many IPL Treatments Will I Need?

Most areas require 4-8 treatments. However, the number of treatments required for optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors – hair thickness, the area treated, and your hair’s growth cycle. Each hair grows at a different rate and goes through three distinct phases: growth, regression, and resting.

IPL treatments work by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all of the hair follicles in a given area.
