Intense Pulsed Light Technology
Using Intense Pulsed Light Technology and a specific wavelength, we are able to target hair beneath the surface of the skin. This treatment will reduce the amount of hair, reduce ingrown hairs and give you an overall smoother appearance.
The treatment feels like a snap or flick on the skin. We are able to treat most areas you have a concern with hair. Treatment is effective for light brown to black hair. Hair that is lacking pigment such as blonde, grey, white or red is not treatable. This treatment is safe for skin types 1 – IV and has no downtime.
Treatment packages are customized based on the amount of hair. Most areas require 6 – 9 treatments with some areas needing more treatments. Maintenance treatments are recommended as needed.
