I’m Interested in IPL for Hair Removal. Tell Me More.

IPL is an excellent option if you’re looking for permanent hair reduction. Since the device targets the pigment in the hair, it works best on patients with darker hair and may not be an effective choice for patients with gray, blonde, or light red hair. You’ll need a series of treatments to achieve the best possible results but, after treatment is complete, hair should be noticeably reduced. Any hair that remains should be lighter, softer, and less visible. Many patients find they can stop shaving completely after treatment.

We can use IPL to remove hair in many areas, including:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Bikini Area (including Brazilian bikini)
