Who can get IPL hair removal?
Men and women alike are great candidates for IPL hair removal. Our Astanza Liberty IPL uses advanced technology to treat patients of all skin types and hair colors. Patients with light skin tones and darker hair will see the most effective results.
Where can I get treatment?
Our Liberty IPL can be used on all parts of the body. The most popular areas for treatment are: underarms, legs, back, upper lip, hands, toes, and chest.
How many treatments will I need?
IPL hair removal requires multiple treatments before seeing complete hair removal. Patients need at least 6 to 12 treatments to achieve permanent results. Treatment sessions are scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart in order to treat and target unwanted hair during its growth stage.
How much does IPL hair removal cost?
Ann Arbor Laser Specialists offer affordable and competitive pricing and free consultations. Our hair removal prices are per treatment and decided based on the size of the area being treated. Special treatment packages are offered to help patients save more. Visit our hair removal pricing page for more information.
Are there any side effects?
IPL hair removal is extremely safe. This light-based procedure is noninvasive and uses light energy to target the melanin in hair follicles while leaving the surrounding skin tissue unharmed. The most common side effects are temporary redness and swelling of the skin. These side effects usually heal within a couple hours after treatment. Patients may use aloe vera to soothe the skin after treatment.
Does the IPL system hurt?
IPL hair removal treatments are very tolerable and deliver minor discomfort. Our Liberty IPL uses internal cooling technology on the treatment head to provide a cooling sensation with each pulse of light. Our Ann Arbor clinic also uses the Zimmer Cryo cooling machine to numb the skin before, during, and after treatment for maximum comfort.
