Areas Treated With IPL & Laser Hair Reduction:
The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the procedure and the skin type. You may experience some slight pinkness or follicular swelling (hive-type reaction) at the treatment site – that usually subsides within a few hours. Cool compresses and aloe vera gel can be used to soothe the skin. True side effects are rare and, if they do occur, are typically minor.
In order to achieve successful results, hair needs to be treated at the active growth stage (anagen, or early anagen phase). While it may appear that all hairs are growing at once, they all march to the beat of their own drum and will grow at different frequencies to one another. Depending on the area, 10-20% may be in the growth phase at any one time. For this reason, treatments are generally performed at 4 to 10 weeks intervals, depending on the area that is being treated to target the percentage hairs that are in the growth phase at that time.
