How many treatments do I need before I see results from my IPL Hair Removal treatments?
Results are immediate!
Although your hair may require 8 – 12 sessions, you will experience lasting results with each treatment including your first.
In fact, your initial treatment will give you the most noticeable reduction. Clients report an average of 20-60% less hair growth following their initial treatment. Not only do they experience less hair growth, but the texture of the hair also becomes finer and delayed in growth rate.
Now don’t get too comfortable as this effect is not permanent just yet.
Within the first few days following your session, your hair may appear to have stopped growing. Your hair will resume growth by week 2 and at this point you might think your treatment was unsuccessful. Keep in mind that this resumed growth is a combination of active hair bulbs and inactive hair now shedding from its follicle post-treatment. Once the shedding process has ended, we are able to measure the effects of the treatment.
Your next treatment will be scheduled within 4 weeks after your first session.
Each treatment following your initial session will increase the amount of reduction by approximately 10% to maximum of 80-98% overall reduction.
Depending on the number of sessions to date, your recorded progress, and expected sun exposure, we may reduce the frequency of your treatments. You will start off with a 4 week pause between treatments, later increasing to 5 weeks, then 6 weeks until you reach your treatment goal.
Your feedback is key when tracking progress AND making progress.
At every visit your technician will be asking a series of questions in order to measure the number of sessions required to achieve your desired results. Additionally, your feedback can also used to make accurate adjustments to the intensity level of your treatment.
After each visit please ensure to track the following to share with your technician at your next visit:
How much of a reduction have you experienced?
Has the texture/ thickness of the hair changed?
Has the colour of the treated hair changed? Is the hair light, medium, or dark tone?
How long did it take for your hair to grow back after your last session?
How frequently are you shaving the area?
If there was a reaction, how long did it last, and what type of reaction was it?
Be patient and realistic with your results
Although we would love to promise maximum results after 1 session, technology is not quite there yet! For now, expect to have up to 12 sessions over the span of 1-2 years. In the meantime, you can enjoy NOT having to deal with ingrown hairs, itchy razor bumps, embarrassing 5 o’clock shadows, daily shaving routine, or painful waxing!

IPL Phototherapy uses light energy to treat major skin conditions and permanently remove unwanted hair. It delivers pulses of UV light into the skin on areas of the face, neck, arms, hands, and legs. The depth of light penetration is measured according to the condition being treated.
With just a quick pulse of light we can diminish brown spots, redness, broken capillaries and remove unwanted facial and body hair.
Browse through our selection and descriptions to see which treatment suits your skin’s needs most. We offer free consultations with our Skin Experts who will analyze your skin condition, outline the benefits, and help you select the best treatment option.
Our chosen technology
We use the Sharplight Formax system. It features a patented Dynamic Pulse Control (DPC) technology.
You may have heard that phototherapy can be painful, but with the Sharplight Formax system, you can rest assured that your service will be a breeze. The system features a cooling window that cools your skin to a safe temperature during your treatment. As a result, your skin feels cool and comfortable throughout!
IPL: PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL
Our IPL Hair Removal treatment will deliver permanent results on any area of face and body, including male facial hair. Above all, razor burn, ingrown hairs, and embarrassing stubble will be a thing of the past!
ALISA (Skin Tightening/Rejuvenation)
Ideal for treating dull skin appearance, textural damage such as scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and mature skin.
Runner up is the photofacial, more specifically, the ACLARA.
ACLARA removes hyper pigmentation caused by sun damage, aging, and acne scarring.
Photofacials change your skin in ways a facial cannot. For example, while a facial can clean pores, it cannot shrink them. The ALISA photofacial can. Photofacials are the next step up from a facial and are great for anti-aging.
