Unwanted Hair Doesn’t Need to be Hair Raising
- Posted on: Jan 15 2017
Unwanted hair is like that unwanted uncle who just left after hanging out at your house for an exorbitant amount of the holiday season — it just keeps coming back! Yes, no matter what you do the hair returns, not unlike the swallows to Capistrano…or that Uncle Marty every December.
We can’t do a whole lot about Uncle Marty, but we can help you get rid of the unwanted hair permanently at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics. It’s called Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ IPL.
Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ IPL is the next-generation of IPL hair removal. Pain-Free, Hair-Free uses cutting-edge light-based technology to remove the hair in the most comfortable, convenient method available today.
How does Pain-Free, Hair-Free work?
Forget waxing, plucking, or other temporary hair removal methods. Pain-Free, Hair-Free uses light energy to remove hair. When we send the pulses of intense pulsed light down onto the hair in the targets areas, the light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. It converts to heat energy and travels down the hair shaft into the follicle at the base. There the heat damages the follicle, causing damage that inhibits or prevents the follicle from producing more hair.
Is it safe?
At Northcoast, the Advanced Fluorescence Technology involved with our IPL machines is set to precisely match your skin and hair type. This is a big difference from some laser one-energy-measurement-fits-all approaches. Those options can be somewhat painful. Our Pain-Free, Hair-Free treatments are quick and safe.
How many treatments will I need?
On your body you have hundreds of thousands of hairs. They can all be in varying phases of the hair growth cycle. For the most damage to the follicle, the hair needs to be in the active growing phase. That’s why more than a single IPL hair removal session is necessary — to continually catch more and more hairs in the growth phase. It usually takes around eight sessions to achieve an 80 percent reduction in hair growth in treatment areas.
