Laser - Electrolysis - Wax
THE SEARCH FOR SMOOTH
Removing unwanted hair is a time consuming, sometimes painful and frustrating part of our lives.
Shaving or Chemical gels remove hair at the surface, giving you short term results. Slightly more long-term are methods like wax or epilators that pull the hair out from the shaft. These methods do not affect the essential element necessary for hair growth - the hair bulb.
With the latest in IPL hair removal light based treatments, you can achieve permanent hair reduction. By gently removing hair at its source and damaging the bulb,IPL hair removal treatments significantly inhibits future hair growth.
PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL/REDUCTION
WITH IPL-DPC TECHNOLOGY
IPL-DPC hair removal and reduction treatments are safe, comfortable and effective.
Our advanced IPL-DPC chill tip cools up to -8 degrees celcius providing our clients with the most comfortable treatment on the market!
HOW IT WORKS
A human hair is comprised of 3 main parts:
The hair shaft
Our hair removal/reduction procedure emits light beam through the hair shaft, into the hair folicle and bulb. The light energy turns into heat energy coagulating the melanin in the follicle and bulb. As a result the follicle/bulb CANNOT grow new hair.
Preparation for Treatment
A consultation is always required to ensure you are a good candidate for laser hair removal/reduction. Please shave the treatment area 24-48 hours prior to your appointment. Avoid sun exposure in the treated area 4 weeks prior to your appointment. Further details will be provided during your consultation.
Please avoid hot baths, hot showers, steam rooms, saunas, sun tanning beds, sun exposure in the treated areas and swimming pools for 48 hours after your treatment. Also avoid excess sweating for 24 hours post treatment (ie. working out). Further details will be provided during your consultation.
For optimal results it is important that you attend your scheduled appointments.
What is IPL-PDC hair removal/reduction treatment?
IPL (intense Pulsed Light) Hair removal/reduction procedure which emits light beam through the hair shaft to the follicle and bulb. The light energy turns to heat energy coagulating the melanin in the follicle and bulb. As a result the follicle/bulb cannot grow new hair. Also, with DPC (dynamic pulse control) we are better able to target different hair colors ranging from light brown to black providing a more effective treatment.
How does light-based technology work?
Light based technology is based on a method called "selective photothermolysis" which works by selective destruction of a specified target without damaging surrounding tissue.
Are IPL-DPC aesthetic treatments painful?
No.During the procedure a slight, momentary stinging sensation may be felt, but not pain. With our chill tips reaching up to -8 degrees celcius cooling, the procedure is quite comfortable in comparison to older technologies.
How many treatments are required?
The typical regimen is 5-7 treatments, spaced 4-12 weeks apart, depending on the body area.
Why are multiple treatments necessary?
About 20-25% of human hair follicles on the body are in the active growth phase at any given time. This is the percentage of hair follicles that can be destroyed in a singe treatment session. In order to eliminate 75% + of the hair, treatment must be repeated at the scheduled times until the desired result is achieved.

What to Expect
Relatively short healing time
Slight swelling/inflammation around follicle.
Occasionally a small scab may form around follicle. It is VERY IMPORTANT TO REFRAIN FROM picking, scratching, or rubbing the scab. Picking may result in skin pitting; this may not heal properly and leave a scar-like pit in skin.
Infrequent and rare cases, bruising can occur in extra-sensitive areas.
