Are you tired of shaving and waxing only for your hair to grow back in a few days? You likely spend a lot of money on hair removal methods without satisfactory results. Shaving can lead to ingrown hair and rashes. Waxing is painful and can be expensive. There must be an easier way. IPL laser hair removal is the best way to rid your body of unwanted hair. Say goodbye to sensitive skin and ingrown hairs.
At Nunnally Dermatology, we offer IPL laser hair removal, an effective hair removal treatment. This semi-permanent hair removal technique can save you money and time. We are here to tell you about the benefits of laser hair removal. If you would like to schedule your hair removal session, contact us online or visit us in Baton Rouge, LA.
What is IPL Laser Hair Removal?
We use Intense Pulse Light or IPL technology to remove unwanted hair. The Palomar Starlux is the state-of-the-art system we use to offer permanent hair removal. It is the most advanced IPL system on the market and could be the best hair removal solution for you. The IPL device emits light to target melanin, or color pigment, in your hair. The IPL light is absorbed by the hair follicle and converted to heat, which loosens and damages the cells that encourage hair regrowth. Since IPL relies on the color pigment in your hair, it cannot target light blonde and grey hair.
IPL laser hair removal can only target your hair while it is in the growing phase. Your hair goes through various stages of growth and regrowth. You experience all the hair growth phases at the same time. That is why it is necessary to have more than one laser hair removal treatment. We have to target your hair when it gets to the growing phase. The regrowth you experience between your sessions will be sparse.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?
IPL laser hair removal is considered a permanent hair removal treatment since it keeps your body hair-free for many years. While laser hair removal results differ from person to person, it is safe to say that this treatment offers long-lasting results compared to shaving and waxing. After a few years, you may notice minor hair regrowth, but you can schedule a touch-up session with us to maintain your laser hair removal results. Laser hair removal can significantly reduce your hair regrowth so you can enjoy hairless skin for longer.
Laser Hair Removal For Intimate Areas
Did you know you can use laser hair removal on your bikini line? It is a versatile treatment that removes hair anywhere. We understand that removing hair from these small areas can be a challenge. Bikini laser hair removal and Brazilian laser hair removal can put an end to those hours of shaving or waxing. Laser hair removal is safe for your intimate areas and can ensure many years of hair-free skin. Would you like to schedule a Brazilian laser hair removal or a bikini laser hair removal session?

How Long is Each Laser Hair Removal Session?
Professional laser hair removal treatments won’t take up much of your time. If you have a busy schedule, and self-grooming comes out at the bottom of your list, laser hair removal is perfect for you. Each session will depend on the number of regions you are treating. Of course, your legs will take longer to treat than your upper lip, which can take a few minutes. Laser hair removal touch-up sessions are much quicker than initial treatments, as most of your hair will have been permanently removed. In the long run, laser removal will save time. A few sessions will replace daily or weekly shaving for years to come.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Are Needed?
Your hair removal treatment course will depend on the thickness, color, and texture of your hair, and your skin tone. Results are better for patients with more contrast between their hair and skin. For example, patients with lighter skin and darker hair will achieve their desired results with fewer sessions. However, no matter your skin tone or hair color, more than one treatment is necessary. Additionally, IPL is most effective when hair is in the growing phase. We need multiple sessions to target all your hair in this phase. On average, patients need between 4-8 sessions to achieve optimal results. You will notice fewer hairs growing back after each session. These sessions should also be spaced several weeks apart for the best results. Visit us for a consultation to discuss the area you want to be treated. We will put a treatment plan together to effectively target your hair and deliver noticeable results.
Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?
Laser hair removal is only slightly painful. However, many patients do find it highly endurable. It has been compared to a rubber band snapping on your skin. One thing is sure: Laser hair removal is far less painful than waxing! Not to mention the pain of ingrown hairs and rashes due to shaving. Overall, laser hair removal offers a more comfortable hair removal experience.
