Questions and Answers
What is the Intense Pulse Light?
This is an incredible new therapy is based on emitting high intensity pulses of light to penetrate the skin to peform such treatments as hair Removal, and photo rejuvenation
How does IPL remove hair?
The Intense Light penetrates the skin and is aborbed by the melanin in the hair. This absorption tretas the hair, with the heat being transported to the nourishment structure of the hair (follicle). This is heated to 700C for a millisecond thus destroying the follicle. Hundreds of follicles are destryed by each flash and the hair start to fall out in 1-2 weeks.
Can all hairtypes be treated?
The darker the hair (the richer the melanin content), the better the result. White and red hairs cannot be tretaed using this method.

Are there any secondary effects?

How do we know if sufficient tretament has been given?
