If you’re considering hair removal treatment, then now is the time. Because it’s still winter, you’re probably spending more time indoors. This is the perfect opportunity to get all those pesky areas of hair removed from your body before the summer sunshine hits and you’re once again enjoying the outdoors.

How does Jefferson perform hair removal treatments?

Jefferson utilizes state-of-the-art Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology. IPL works by transmitting a concentrated pulses of light to the area being treated. Unlike lasers, IPL delivers multiple wavelengths of light to achieve the desired result, whereas lasers use only one wavelength. One of the biggest benefits of IPL therapy for hair removal is that it can be adjusted to meet each client’s specific needs. This is done with the use of filters that refine the light’s energy, allowing it be much more targeted than a typical laser treatment. IPL is also one of the safest hair removal methods on the market.

Who is a good candidate for IPL hair removal?

Hair removal is a procedure that can be done on most people with unwanted hair. There are some medical conditions and skin types that might exclude one from qualifying for IPL treatment. It’s safe for both men and women and can be used on many parts of the body. The most common areas for hair removal are: arms, legs, upper lip, chin and even the back. IPL is most effective on dark hair because it will lighten up before eventually thinning out and disappearing.

Will my hair disappear after my first treatment?

Not exactly. Permanent hair removal might require up to 8 treatments, depending on many factors. After the first treatment, the hair will be gone. But it will return, and when it does, it will be a little lighter. As the treatments continue, less and less hair will grow back, and the hair that does grow back will be much lighter, therefore less noticeable. Each IPL treatment damages the hair follicles a little more until the follicle is no longer able to regrow any hair at all.
