Pulsed Light Hair Removal

The specialists at the Lavenburg Medical Group and the DelMar Surgical and Cosmetic Treatment Center offer pulsed light hair removal in Wilmington and Newark, Delaware; Elkton and North East, Maryland and surrounding areas in Delaware, Maryland and southeast Pennsylvania..

How does Intense Pulsed Light work?

Intense Pulsed Light Systems use specialized hand pieces which filter light from different parts of the spectrum. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as hair reduction, sunspot removal, and acne treatment.

The hair removal hand pieces emit pulses of 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 cells responsible for growing new hair.

How is Intense Pulsed Light different from a laser?

Pulsed light systems and lasers are very similar, but Intense Pulsed Light Systems use a much larger treatment window than most lasers. This spreads light over a wider area of skin and allows faster coverage of the skin and quicker treatments as a result.

Which Areas of the Body Can IPL Treat?

Any area, except around the eyes. The upper lip, face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, chest and back can all be treated.

What are IPL treatments like?

Your treatment provider will move the hand piece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the hand piece is being pulsed.

What should I expect after Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal?

Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs.
The treated hair will continue to appear for 7-30 days post-treatment. This is not new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expelled from the skin.

At any given time, some of your hair is not in a phase of active growth. Therefore you will need more than one treatment to affect the growth of all your unwanted hair.

Typically, several treatments will be necessary to achieve permanent hair reduction.

Other Treatments:

The doctors at the Lavenburg Medical Group my choose an Intense Pulsed Light System because it offers the most versatile, effective, and comfortable aesthetic treatments available. In addition to hair removal, Intense Pulsed Light Systems offer treatments for sun damage, acne, rosacea, age spots, and spider veins.
