IPL Hair Removal and IUD

ipl or laser hair removal and IUD
Will my IUD affect my IPL Hair Removal treatments?

Can I have IPL Hair Removal if I have an IUD?

The simple answer is, yes! 


What is an IUD? 

An IUD (Intrauterine Device) is a small T-shape contraceptive device that is placed inside of the uterus and worn for 3-10 years with regular check-ups. Most IUD’s available on the market are constructed of a simple copper, or a polyethylene plastic with hormonal components built into the structure. 

One of the main concerns with this combination, is how the heat absorbed by the body tissues will react with the solid structures of the device. Although this sounds like a probable cause for internal burns, there are major contributing factors that make this reaction highly unlikely.  

The Facts 

If we observe the depth of the uterus beneath the skin in the average adult female, it would be within the centimetre scale (not including excess fat). The distance of measure includes layers of skin, fascia, muscle, fat, and the multiple layers of the uterine wall.  

The light energy emitted by the device is measured on a nanometer scale and reaches up-to a 635-nanometer depth in the skin. To put this into perspective when comparing to the distance of the uterus, consider the following:  

1cm = 0.01m 

VS 

1nm = 0.000 000 001m 

 or 

One-hundredth of a meter 

VS 

One-billionth of a meter 

or 

Measurement used for object that fit on a ruler  

VS 

Measurement used for objects on an atomic or molecular level  


One thing to keep in mind though if you have the polyethylene IUD (contains hormones), there may be an effect on the expected results and/or number of sessions required. 

If you have any underlying medical conditions and are under observation of a physician, we recommend you consult with them prior to booking your appointment, to ensure you have your questions and concerns addressed from both a technical and medical perspective.  

Now that we have cleared the air, let’s CLEAR THAT HAIR!

Elevate Hydration with EyEnvy

dermica medesthetics

What is this miracle serum?  

EyEnvy is a vegan lash and brow conditioner that amplifies your natural hair growth. It contains a combination of nutrient rich vitamins and peptides that elevate hydration and nourish the hair shaft. 

EyEnvy Conditioner is great for use on sparse areas of the lash & brow line to help promote new hair growth, or as a booster with your Lash Lift or brow Sculpt. 

How does it help? 

Processing, cleansing, cosmetics, and sun exposure can cause moisture loss which can cause premature colour fading and brittle lashes. The added nutrients in the conditioner are perfect for post-care as they lock in moisture and extend the life and efficacy of your service!

Take advantage of our monthly spa special! Add the LASH LIFT and EyEnvy promo to your dérmica beauty routine for only | LASH LIFT w TINT $160  | LASH LIFT $140.

LASH LIFT Q & A

Q: What is a LASH LIFT?
A: Lash lifts are a gentle form of lash perming that curls the natural lashes along the lash line. It gives the appearance of longer more feminine lashes.

Q: How does it work?
A: The first step is to open the bonds in the hair, giving flexibility within the mid shaft where the curl is found. The second step sets the lashes into position and seals the hair shaft. The third step reintroduces moisture back into the lashes.

Q: How long does it last?
A: Lash lifts can last up to 12 weeks. This depends on after-care products used and thickness of lashes. Gentle products are recommended on eye area and minimal rubbing. Thick lashes are more resistant and will fall faster than thin lashes.

Q: Will the lash lift damage my lashes?
A: It is recommend that clients wait 12 weeks between lash lifts. This allows you hair to recover and regenerate new growth. EyEnvy will condition and hydrate hair follicles for stronger-than-ever lashes.

Q: How do I care for my lashes following the treatment?
A: You must avoid water, makeup, and pressure on the lashes for 48hrs. Afterwards you can return to your regular routine and products. It is recommended to sleep on your back in order to avoid bending the lashes overnight. Using a lash comb to lift and operate the lashes will help set.

Q: Are there any allergies I must be aware of?
A: It is rare for reactions to occur as the products are kept strictly on the lashes.

  • who have sensitivity to latex are not recommended to have the procedure, as the adhesive used does contain latex.
  • If you have ever reacted to artificial lash glue used for strip lashes, you are at risk of having a reaction.
  • Typical allergic reaction will cause the eyes to swell for up to 72 hours.
