What Is Laser Hair Reduction?
At the Tampa location of Hermann Wellness, our IPL laser hair reduction treatment is non-invasive and fast. This gentle pulsed light treatment can be performed on multiple areas including the face, arms, legs, chest, underarms, and bikini area…and there is no down time! The pulsed light laser hair reduction targets the melanin in the hair follicle causing heat damage to the hair cell without harming normal skin. Each IPL laser hair reduction treatment reduces hair number and size of hair follicles in the area until the desired result is reached. Most skin types can be treated with the IPL laser, you will meet with a practitioner in our Tampa IPL laser hair reduction location prior to your IPL laser hair reduction treatment for a consultation.
What Can I Expect During And After The IPL Laser Hair Reduction Treatment?
A topical anesthetic can be used prior to the IPL laser hair reduction treatment to relieve any discomfort that you may experience. Most patients feel minimal discomfort during the IPL laser hair reduction procedure. The treated area will feel like a mild sunburn and may be slightly pink for a few hours. Hair follicles may become slightly red and swollen. Hair that is treated will gradually shed within the next two weeks. A daily sunblock and skin care regimen will be discussed before you leave the office.
How Long Does The Procedure Take?
Advanced IPL laser hair reduction treatment time depends on the size of the treatment area, and can range from 10-45 minutes. Depending on your skin type and area to be treated, 2-10 IPL laser hair reduction treatments at our state-of-the-art Tampa location of Hermann Wellness may be necessary.
