Forget shaving, waxing, tweezing and electrolysis – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology provides long-lasting hair removal on any area of the body. IPL photoepilation uses high-energy pulses of light to remove unwanted hair from the face, back, legs, bikini line and other areas without damaging nearby tissue. First, a cold gel is applied to the skin. Then the IPL handpiece is moved back and forth across the selected area. Hair beneath the skin surface absorbs the light and heats up, loosening from the follicles and eventually falling out.
Patients can return to work and all regular activities immediately after the procedure. The results are immediate and long-lasting, with some permanent thinning. Several treatments may be desired for optimal results.
We are highly experienced in this type of hair removal and have performed the procedure successfully for many years. It is safe, effective and causes very little discomfort. It is performed under the direct supervision of Dr. Charles Zugerman, a board certified dermatologist with a university appointment."
IPL hair removal works best on dark hair perhaps 1/8 to 1/4 inch long and after the procedure there is no "down time". Dr. Zugerman would be delighted to answer any of your questions and to determine if this cosmetic procedure is right for you.
