IPL Hair Removal – Frequently asked questions?!

Frequently Asked Questions

01  What areas can be treated?

Light-based permanent hair reduction can remove hair from faces (except around the eyes), backs, chests, arms, underarms, bikini lines, buttocks and legs.

02  Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Permanent hair reduction is available for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin, and for most hair colors. Depskin will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure based on a variety of factors.

03  How does it work?

Light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue, so there’s minimal risk.

04  How long does it take?

Permanent hair reduction treatments take just minutes for small areas and about a half hour for larger areas.

05  How many treatments will I need?

Several treatment sessions are recommended for the best aesthetic outcome. Permanent hair reduction technology can only affect hair in active phases of growth, so several treatments are needed to affect all your unwanted hair. You don’t need to let hair grow out between treatment sessions.

06  What will the treatment feel like?

Most people feel only a slight, momentary “snap” at the treatment site during the procedure.

07  How quickly will I recover?

You can resume regular daily activities immediately after treatment.

08  Are there any side effects?

Typically, most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately after the treatment. This usually lasts 2 to 24 hours. Ask your provider to discuss other possible side effects and necessary post-treatment care with you.
