Excessive hair may be familial, due to a hormonal imbalance or related to some medications. Hair can be removed using Intense Pulse Light (IPL) or a Long pulsed Nd YAG Laser which is safe for all skin types especially those with darker skin. Both treatments offer long-term hair reduction after multiple sessions of treatment.
Preparation for IPL or laser treatment:
Avoid waxing, threading or plucking hairs 2 weeks before
Shave the hairs short 3 days prior
Number of sessions required:
4-6 sessions for face, armpits, bikini line, brazilian
5-7 sessions for arms and legs
The clinic uses the Cutera Xeo Long pulse Nd-YAG system.
