Intense Pulse Light (IPL) for Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the most highly sought after treatments! We use medical grade equipment in our clinic with the goal of providing affordable effective treatments for men and women alike. Before your first treatment, you will need a short 15 minute consultation with one of our skin-care consultants. This is needed to assess your skin type, assess your suitability for treatment and discuss how to prep your skin for the best possible result.
The light depletes the hair follicle of moisture, causing it to burn and die. The IPL hair removal adopts the photo-thermal therapy and it can be selectively absorbed by the target while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. As IPL hair removal therapy eliminates the unwanted hair from the hair root to the tip, the DermaLase IPL device has proven to be a very effective long-term hair removal technique.
Nubody Equipment’s Health Canada approved DermaLase IPL Laser Hair Removal and Skin Rejuvenation machine can help provide effective, pain-free treatments.
Hair Growth Cycle
It can take six to twelve weeks for a hair to grow from the papilla to the surface of the skin.
Every hair in our body goes through the three phases of the hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. At any given time about 85%-90% of your hair is in the Anagen phase (active stage), 1-2% is in the Catagen phase (transitional stage), and 10-14% is in the Telogen phase (resting stage).
The Anagen phase is the best time to target as the hair is well situated in the follicle for the IPL to seek and destroy.
Due to the different cycles, 6-8 treatments are recommended on average, spaced out according to the growth cycle. The time it takes to complete a full program varies from person to person and the location of the hair on the body, but is typically 12-24 months.
