IPL HAIR REMOVAL
Unwanted hair growth can sometimes be unsightly, but it can also be a hassle with constant shaving. Permanent hair removal with Intensed Pulsed Light (IPL) can be the answer you have been looking for.
People may want their unwelcome hair removed for cosmetic reasons, to ease their daily grooming chores or for health reasons. Many people suffer from small red bumps known as folliculitis or may have larger painful bumps known as Pseudofolliculitis barbae. These larger razor bumps are especially prevalent in darker skinned people. Permanent hair removal with intense pulsed light can provide relief.
Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that removes unwanted and excess hair from areas of the body with an intensely powered light. The light of the laser heats the hair follicle to the point that the root is destroyed. The skin around it remains unharmed. Today’s advanced technologies allow us to treat different skin tones and hair color.

CAN THE VENUS VERSA™ IPL LASER REMOVE HAIR FROM TANNED OR ETHNIC SKIN?
An active tan from the sun or tanning beds is not appropriate for treating with IPL. Tanned skin has a lot of pigment or melanin, which may also absorb the IPL light energy. It is recommended that a person not have sun exposure or have used a tanning bed in the area to be treated for a period of 3-4 weeks prior to treatment with IPL. Self-tanners must be faded from the skin for at least 14 days prior to treatment. Discuss with your clinician the possibility of tanning during your series so that a safe regimen can be created. Ethnic skin is NOT a candidate for hair removal treatments or other IPL therapies generally speaking.
Laser hair removal is not painful, however; there may be some discomfort that can be managed with topical anesthetic if necessary. Patients typically feel a gradual heating in the targeted area. When the hair is dense, there is sometimes a pricking sensation, but that goes away quickly.
HOW MANY VENUS VERSA™ IPL LASER TREATMENTS DOES IT TAKE TO PERMANENTLY REMOVE UNWANTED HAIR?
Most laser hair removal treatments are successful with about six to eight sessions. The exact number will depend on the thickness and persistance of the hair, which is unique to each person’s body. Once the hair is gone, it is gone, although you may require touch up treatments over time.
Christina Harris, certified Medical Laser Specialist will evaluate your skin and the area where you want laser hair removal then make a recommendation on the best plan to achieve the look you want.

PREPARING FOR YOUR VENUS VERSA™ IPL LASER TREATMENT
Shave the day before or the day of treatment. Shaving does not affect the follicle therefore does not decrease the effectiveness of laser treatment.
Do not wax or pluck the hair for two weeks prior to treatment. Waxing and plucking remove the hair from the follicle and make laser treatments less effective.
Keep your skin protected from the sun for at least two weeks prior (and two weeks after) to treatment, including avoiding tanning beds. Sunburned skin is not safe to be treated and sun exposure after treatment can lead to increased skin damage.
DURING YOUR VENUS VERSA™ IPL LASER TREATMENT
Your treatment will begin with a brief consultation. You will likely be lying down during the treatment, which takes 10-60 minutes depending on the size of the area.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT IN BETWEEN VENUS VERSA™ IPL LASER TREATMENTS?
Typically 4-6 Weeks. You can book your next appointment at the end of your last one.
