How many treatments are required?
The typical treatment regimen is 5-8 treatments, spaced 4- 12 weeks apart, depending on body area. 20-25% of the hairs are attached to the hair follicles in a single treatment session. The strands that are in the growth phase represent this stage. The IPL Hair Reduction treatment eliminates 70% to 95% of the hair.
IPL needs an excellent contrast to be effective as well. The colour of the skin needs to be lighter than the hair to be effective. The client needs to avoid overexposure to the sun while getting treatments.
Shaving is free when a client can't shave the desired area.
Blonde and Grey hair have no melanin; they would not be suitable for this type of hair reduction. There are many types of red hair, and success with IPL laser would be uncertain.
