Hair Removal Q & A

What is IPL laser hair removal?

Dr. Salmassi uses IPL, or intense pulsed light, laser therapy to help you achieve semi-permanent or permanent hair loss.

Light wavelengths penetrate into hair follicles, destroying them at the root. With this type of hair removal procedure, you not only eliminate current body hair, but you also prevent new hair from growing in the treated areas.

Many people opt for laser hair removal on areas of the body they’re tired of shaving or waxing, such as the legs, underarms, bikini line, or face. In most cases, you’ll need six to eight sessions to achieve lasting results. Maintenance treatments can also help to prevent hair regrowth.

 

Am I a candidate for IPL laser hair removal?

Most people are viable candidates for laser hair removal. Dr. Salmassi is happy to discuss your goals and your needs with a personalized consultation.

In this session, you’ll talk about any medical conditions, allergies, previous surgeries, and other factors that might affect your eligibility for laser hair removal.

 

What happens during an IPL laser hair removal session?

The hair removal process with an IPL laser is fast, efficient, and virtually painless. Dr. Salmassi simply runs the handheld laser over the areas from which you want to remove hair. He can treat several different areas of the body in one session.

Some people might experience a slight pinching or tingling sensation with IPL treatment, and your skin may feel sensitive to the touch afterward. To minimize any redness or discomfort, you can apply a cold pack to the area or take over-the-counter pain relievers.

After your appointment, you may notice hair shedding as your body expels the hair from your skin. At first, this may look like new hair growth.

 

What are the benefits of IPL laser hair removal?

The costs of shaving and waxing can add up, and IPL laser hair removal can be a cheaper alternative in the long run. Results last several months, and you can achieve smooth skin in just a few short sessions. With maintenance treatments, this type of hair removal can be permanent.
