Beyond Laser Hair Removal: Achieve Long-Term Hair Reduction with IPL

Many people are familiar with laser hair removal as a way to achieve long-term reduction of unwanted hair. While technically not a laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is an effective, pain-free way to minimize the appearance of unwanted hair—permanently. Book your complimentary consultation at Vibe Salon & MediSpa in Bedford!

What is IPL?

Intense pulsed light (IPL), or flash lamp therapy, is a non-invasive and non-ablative treatment that uses high-intensity pulses of visible light to remove unwanted hair and improve the health and overall appearance of your skin.

At Vibe, we have highly-educated and qualified laser technicians with years of hands-on experience. Safety always comes first, and patch testing is required before any treatment is performed.

We offer high-end, effective treatments at a reasonable cost, and best of all, your consultation is complimentary.

How Does IPL for Hair Removal Work?

IPL pulses high-intensity, targeted light directly at hair follicles. This causes the hair to fall out and prevents any further growth in the area. Although generally ineffective for light-coloured hair, IPL technology may be used for the removal of unwanted hair in any location including underarms, bikini line, face, neck, back, chest, and legs.

What Does IPL Treatment Involve?

Prior to your treatment, your medical esthetician will explain the process to you and clearly define your expectations of the treatment. They should be able to tell you whether or not the results you are looking for will be achievable using this method.

Preparing for treatment:

  • Avoid sun exposure in the days and weeks before and after treatment.
  • Avoid retinoid use for 48 hours prior to treatment.
  • Avoid self-tanner and tanning beds. Use of either is a contraindication and the service cannot be performed.
  • The smooth, glass surface of the IPL treatment head is applied to the skin, delivering precise pulses of light to the area being treated.
  • Treatment sessions usually last about 20 minutes. A course of 4-6 sessions every 3-6 weeks may be needed to achieve desired results.
  • Most patients can return to work immediately after treatment.

All clients must have a consultation and patch test prior to a full treatment.
