Hair Removal

Elegant, Sparkling And Ageless

Our DermaLase IPL method for hair removal is a safe, virtually painless way of removing unwanted hair.

It works by focusing a laser beam at the base of the hair follicle, halting hair growth.  IPL hair removal can be used on any part of the body, including the most common problem areas: face, bikini area, legs and underarms. Many professionals and celebrities choose laser hair removal as it is considered the highest quality, most safe and effective way to remove unwanted hair from visible areas.

It's not just women who get laser hair removal facts, a growing number of men are considering getting laser hair removal, especially males who have dense and dark thick shafts of hair on their back. The amount of laser skin treatments has nearly doubled since 2000 and the percentage of men getting work done is increasing by leaps and bounds.

DermaLase IPL can remove hair for anywhere from several months to years, as the results differ widely from person to person.

DermaLase IPL delivers permanent hair reduction to remove unwanted and unsightly hair from the face and body. A number of sessions may be required to achieve the desired outcome, but IPL guarantees complete reduction.

Hair Growth Cycle

It can take six to twelve weeks for hair to grow from the papilla to the surface of the skin. 

Every hair in our body goes through the three phases of the hair growth cycle: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. At any given time about 85%-90% of your hair is in the Anagen phase (active stage), 1-2% is in the Catagen phase (transitional stage), and 10-14% is in the Telogen phase (resting stage). 

The Anagen phase is the best time to target as the hair is well situated in the follicle for the IPL to seek and destroy.

Due to the different cycles, 6-8 treatments are recommended on average, spaced out according to the growth cycle.  The time it takes to complete a full program varies from person to person and the location of the hair on the body, but is typically 12-24 months.​​

​The light depletes the hair follicle of moisture, causing it to burn and die.  The IPL hair removal adopts photo-thermal therapy and it can be selectively absorbed by the target while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. As IPL hair removal therapy eliminates unwanted hair from the hair root to the tip, the DermaLase IPL device has proven to be a very effective long-term hair removal technique.
