Laser Hair Removal
IPL Treatments (Hair Removal , Photofacial )
offering Laser Hair Removal in Airdrie & Area. Our IPL technology is safe & FDA approved is a unique way to deliver energy to a predetermined target. Unlike other IPL's and lasers where the energy is scattered in the skin, our technology manages to concentrate a bulk of light energy in a geometrical plane positioned under the surface of the skin.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments you may require for optimal long-term 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 its growth. Age, ethnicity, hormones, diet, medication and metabolism all play a part in your hair's location, thickness and resilience.
- No risk of skin pigmentation or burning
- Treatments are 100% non-invasive
- Treatments use relatively low temperatures, allowing the light to penetrate deep into the skin without causing damage. The deeper the light is able to penetrate, the more effective the treatment.
- No downtime is needed after the treatment. You are free to go outside and carry on with your regular day. (Tanning or Tropical vacation after treatments is discouraged for 2 weeks prior and after the treatment)
