Pain-Free, Hair-Free Gives Unwanted Hair the Boot
- Posted on: Jan 22 2016
Remember that movie Groundhog Day? In the film, Bill Murray’s character wakes up each day only to realize he is reliving the previous day all over again. Kind of like an endless summer rerun.
Sounds kind of like dealing with your unwanted hair, doesn’t it? You pluck, wax, shave, and apply harsh creams and chemicals to get rid of unwanted hair, only to have it grow right back in a couple weeks. Talk about an unwanted rerun!
At Northcoast Laser, we can get rid of that hair permanently with our Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ Intense Pulsed Light hair removal. We believe Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ is the most comfortable hair removal option available.
How does IPL removal work?
Our IPL hair removal treatments make use of highly concentrated light beams that are directed into the skin’s hair follicles. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the light energy and this damages the follicle, destroying its ability to grow hair. Usually a number of sessions are needed to remove the majority of hair in a treatment area because the individual hairs can be in different periods of the hair growth cycle and can be more or less affected by the IPL.
What are the advantages of IPL hair removal?
IPL at Northcoast can remove unwanted hair on the face, arms, legs, underarms, pubic area, and other areas of the body. Our method has many advantages over other methods:
• Precision — Only the dark, coarse hairs are targeted, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
• Predictability — It typically takes four to six sessions for permanent hair reduction.
• Speed — Every pulse of light takes less than one second and treats many hairs at the same time. Each pulse can treat an area roughly the size of a quarter.
How many treatments will I need?
Since only 20% or less of your hair may be in the active growing phase at any time, multiple treatments are necessary. We have found that, on average, eight treatments achieve an 80% reduction in hair growth in the treated areas. Over time there will also be the need for some maintenance to continue your results.
