Laser hair removal is the easiest way to minimize the appearance of unwanted hair and achieve long-term hair reduction. At Vitality, our laser hair removal technicians use IPL, or intense pulsed light, to dramatically reduce hair growth. IPL technology emits multiple light wavelengths the are absorbed by pigment in hair follicles as heat. The heat then kills the cell that grows the hair.
Hair grows in three phases: anagen (the growth phase), catagen (the renewal phase), and telogen (the resting phase). All three phases happen at once, meaning that the hairs on your body are simultaneously growing, renewing and resting. As IPL targets the hair follicles, the targeted hair must be in the growth phase. To ensure that laser hair removal is effective, treatments are conducted in a cycle of typically 8 to 12 treatments, so that all hairs are targeted multiple times over the course of treatment.
IPL hair removal works most effectively on darker hairs and clients with fair skin. Book your consultation today—our laser hair removal technicians in downtown Halifax are looking forward to creating a customized treatment plan to help you permanently reduce the appearance of unwanted hair!
