Hair Removal Q & A

What is IPL hair removal?

IPL hair removal uses intense pulsed bursts of light to destroy hair follicles, making hair fall out over time and come back lighter or not at all. IPL hair removal is a noninvasive procedure that gets rid of unsightly hair in problem areas, so you don’t have to worry about shaving, plucking, or waxing anymore.

What is hair removal used for?

Hair removal at SeeBeyond Beauty helps remove unwanted hair in just about any part of your body, including your:

  • Face
  • Upper lip
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Legs
  • Arms

You might choose to remove body hair from multiple areas based on your needs, preferences, and beauty goals.

Is IPL hair removal right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for IPL hair removal at SeeBeyond Beauty, your specialist examines unsightly hair in areas of concern.

They discuss your medical history and desired outcome with you and let you know what to expect during hair removal procedures. Your provider personalizes each treatment to give you long-lasting results.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Right before IPL hair removal at SeeBeyond Beauty, your provider cleans the treatment area and numbs it to enhance your comfort level. You wear special glasses to protect your eyes, and your specialist applies IPL energy to your skin to target hair follicles without damaging other tissues.

The length of time each treatment session lasts depends on the size of the treatment area, and it ranges from just a few minutes to perhaps over an hour.

What happens after IPL hair removal?

After IPL hair removal at SeeBeyond Beauty, there’s no downtime. You can resume normal everyday activities immediately after treatment, but you may experience redness, swelling, or tenderness that lasts for the rest of the day.

Your aesthetics provider recommends a series of IPL sessions to maximize your outcome. Over time, treated hair begins to fall out. The hair may come back lighter or not at all. Undergoing more than one IPL hair treatment session offers you the best chance of achieving permanent hair removal.
