Skin - Excess Hair

Hair Removal with the Palomar System
If you live with unwanted hair, then you will be happy to know that permanent hair reduction can be achieved using safe and effective laser and light-based technology. At FACES, we use intense pulsed light (IPL) via the Palomar System to permanently reduce unwanted hair.

Removing Unwanted Hai
Pulsed light is similar to a laser in that it uses an intense beam of light, but the difference is in the comfort and speed of treatment. Pulsed-light systems have the flexibility to provide varied hair removal treatments on different types of skin and hair.

The system removes unwanted hair by targeting the hair follicles. The specific wavelengths of light are absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and are converted to heat. The heat then disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.

Pulsed light treatments are significantly more effective than temporary solutions such as shaving and waxing.

Most patients describe the pulses as a 'snapping' sensation, which causes mild discomfort at most. After the treatment, there may be some redness for a few days, but that quickly fades and the patient can enjoy the effects of permanent hair reduction.
