Before treatment, your clinician should closely shave away the hair in the treated areas and apply a cold gel. As the pulses of light are applied to your skin, you may feel a slight stinging or warm sensation. When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area sheds over the next week or two.
Immediately after treatment, you may experience some slight redness or swelling of the treated area. This is a positive clinical result which indicates that the follicles have responded to the treatment. You should be able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. Typically your physician should advise staying out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sunscreen.
The Lumenis® IPL Hair Removal treatment is generally administered in a series of four to six sessions that yield excellent long-term results. Significant hair reduction may already be visible after the first session.
