Maintaining unwanted or excessive hair growth can seem like an endless hassle. Waxing, tweezing, and shaving on a daily basis takes a lot of time and money with results that don’t last. At ChiYan Medical and Spa located in Cutler Bay, Fl, we are sensitive to the fact that many patients struggle with unwanted and excessive hair. That is why we offer the latest, non-invasive, and highly-effective technologies for permanent hair removal and reduction. IPL and laser treatments offer safe and precise remedies to help you achieve the softer, hair-free skin you desire.
What is IPL for Hair Removal?
IPL treatments for hair removal harnesses the power of Intense Pulsed Light energy, which is a broad spectrum light source. This innovative system works to deliver IPL light pulses directly to the targeted hair follicles through the melanin of skin. The beams of light target the pigmentation, heat them, and destroy the follicle. Once the follicle is destroyed, it loses the ability to produce hair. This offers lasting results for potentially permanent hair reduction. Unlike laser hair removal, IPL produces a broader range of light waves delivered to the skin. This enables the light beam to spread out over a larger area. With this specialized treatment, you can make painful waxing and plucking a thing of the past.
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal utilizes a single focused beam, or Intense Pulsed Light, that is delivered to the targeted area in quick pulses. These pulses of light energy are transferred to the follicles as heat energy. The laser focussed beam beam of light contains properties that enable it to concentrate in one tight area, and not over wide distances. The energy beam of light is delivered straight down into the pore, targets the hair follicle directly, damaging it with precision and quickness. Both IPL and laser hair removal heat and damage the hair follicles. However, laser hair removal is more precise so there may be fewer treatments needed to achieve optimal results.
There are many benefits that both IPL and laser hair removal treatments can offer including:
- Successful permanent hair loss within 3-7 sessions
- Quick session times depending on the size of the area being treated
- Minimal side effects as opposed to other treatment options
- Precise delivery and disruption of hair follicles
- Can treatment many areas of the body
