For smooth silky skin

Imagine not having to shave, tweeze, wax or go through electrolysis again!

For many men and women, unwanted hair can be a nightmare. Getting rid of it can be painful. Until now the only options for removing unwanted hair were smelly hair removal creams, sharp razors, stinging wax or painful electrolysis needles. Our advanced approach to beautiful skin provides the ultimate solution. Now, men and women alike will be pleased with the results made possible by our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal process.

IPL technology offers a gentle, non-invasive, long-lasting solution to unwanted hair on the face, back, legs, bikini line or any other body area. Based on technology used for nearly a decade in the treatment of port-wine stains and other birthmarks, IPL photo-epilation has been performed safely for many years, effectively eliminating dozens of hairs with each pulse leaving your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier.

Long-Lasting Results Pulsed Light system works by emitting pulses of intense light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the follicular cells responsible for growing new hair. Most hair removed with the Palomar Medi-Lux system will not grow back at all. Hair that does grow back may be thinner and lighter in colour.

Comfortable Hair Management

Traditional waxing and threading treatments, which essentially rip the hair from the skin, can be quite painful. Most people, however, find the Medi-Lux IPL system to be significantly more comfortable. In addition, since the pulses of light penetrate the skin, you do not need to let your hair grow out before you are treated. With Medi-Lux IPL treatments, you can remain virtually hair-free all the time!

What Are The Treatment Sessions Like? and Easy! After your initial preparation, we gently cleanse the area to be treated. Next, a wand-like handpiece is applied to your skin. The handpiece emits the light that disables the hair follicles. In a fraction of a second, all of the treated hair follicles are disabled. Most people perceive the light as a gentle “snapping” sensation. Once this is completed, a soothing lotion will be applied, and you’re ready to go.

What Should Most People Expect After Treatment?

Most people experience some mild redness and tenderness in the treated area shortly after treatment. This does not interfere with normal activities and usually subsides within a day. In some cases, the redness may last longer, but will still be mild and temporary. Before, during and after the treatment, we will discuss other, less likely side effects with you.


How is IPL Removal different from electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a much slower process. With electrolysis a needle is actually inserted into each hair follicle, one at a time. Once inserted, an electric shock burns the follicle to retard hair growth. IPL Hair Removal uses the light to scan the treatment area and within minutes all of the hairs in the light beam are treated. Most patients who have had both procedures say that IPL Hair Removal is less painful, faster and more convenient.

What Is The Difference Between Laser and Intense Pulsed Light Treatments?

Pulsed-light systems and lasers are very similar and remove hair in basically the same way. Intense Pulsed Light systems emit multiple wavelengths of light whereas lasers only emit one. IPL hair removal can safely and effectively eliminate even coarse hairs.

With the IPL process, we can gently treat hair in sensitive areas such as the lip or breast areas while maintaining a healthy, normal appearance of the surrounding tissue. Palomar Medi-Lux, using this new technology, removes hair up to ten times faster than lasers. IPL treatments can fit even the busiest person’s schedule.

How many treatments will I need? number of treatments you may require for optimal benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density and your hair's growth cycle. Your hair grows in cycles and many factors influence it's growth. Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair's location, thickness and resilience. The IPL slows the growing capacity of follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Since some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after your treatment, multiple treatments may be required to deliver optimal results. Generally, patients need 6 to 8 treatments to achieve their results. Treatment results will vary from patient to patient depending on skin and hair colour.

Note: Removing hair does not make it grow back thicker, darker or quicker. The opposite is usually the case. IPL treatments may cause hair to come back slower and thinner.

Are there any possible side effects?

Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours or a few days. On rare occasions, some blistering or bruising may occur, but typically resolves quickly. Also, the skin can become darker or lighter following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks to 6 months. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimize the risk of complications.
