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. It is worn for 3-10 years with regular check-ups. Most IUD’s have hormonal components built into a simple copper structure. Others may be made of polyethylene plastic. 

Concerns with the combo…

There are concerns with this combination. Firstly, the reaction of the heat from the solid structures of the device absorbed by the body tissues. Although this sounds like a probable cause for internal burns, there are factors that make this reaction highly unlikely.  

The Factors 

The depth of the uterus beneath the skin in the average adult female, falls within the centimetre scale (not including excess fat). This measurement 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!

What to Expect after IPL Hair Removal

What can I expect when doing IPL Hair Removal treatments?

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: 

  1. How much of a reduction have you experienced? 
  2. Has the texture/ thickness of the hair changed?
  3. Has the colour of the treated hair changed? Is the hair light, medium, or dark tone? 
  4. How long did it take for your hair to grow back after your last session? 
  5. How frequently are you shaving the area? 
  6. 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

What is IPL PHOTOTHERAPY?

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.
