Learn more about how IPL works:

Light is used to promote the production of collagen, which helps to fill in wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, while also reducing redness and brown spots. The targeted skin tissue is eventually removed by the body through a natural process. Depending on what is treated, the exact wavelength of the light can be adjusted to optimize your results.
During the procedure, intense light from a range of wavelengths is focused on the targeted areas of your skin. The IPL device is gently pressed against the skin, with a smooth, transparent surface emitting the light. You will wear an eye mask to protect your eyes and vision during the procedure. Topical gels may also be applied to prevent overheating of the skin. The entire treatment is very quick, taking about 30 minutes to complete. The exact time length will depend on the specific area that is being treated.
Once the procedure has been completed, you might need to spend a short recovery time at our office, but after that, you will be able to go home. We just ask that you avoid direct, prolonged sun exposure for 2-5 days following your procedure.
Have you started noticing small brown spots on your skin? If so, you’re not alone. Many patients who have spent extended time in the sun are vulnerable to experiencing accelerated signs of premature aging on their face, hands, and decollate. These sunspots are a form of skin damage, and they represent one of the most common skin concerns. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to improve your skin tone and restore a more youthful-looking complexion, a photo facial treatment.

IPL face treatment is a simple, non-surgical way to effectively target pigment under the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of discoloration and premature aging. There is minimal discomfort and typically only some redness for about a day afterward. With an IPL photo facial, you can achieve noticeably brighter, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin. Each treatment also works on vascular marks, such as spider veins and capillaries. All it takes is a few quick treatments!

Treatments work to reduce visible signs of premature aging, such as sun damage, brown spots, visible veins, and discoloration. The treatment is powered by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse™ technology that delivers precise light through several layers of skin. This light produced by the IPL machine generates heat when absorbed by the targeted tissue, which corrects imperfections in the skin without damaging any of the surrounding tissue.  IPL uses a real-time cooling system to keep your skin protected throughout treatment.
Acne treatments use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse™ technology to treat both the underlying cause and the visible symptoms of acne. It uses a combination of blue and red light delivered simultaneously-the blue light destroys acne-causing bacteria, while red light reduces existing acne-related inflammation to promote faster healing. At the same time, a real-time cooling system works on contact to keep your skin continuously protected from heat.

Types of Excessive Hair Growth

There are two classifications of excessive hair growth:

Hypertrichosis: This condition is the growth of extra body hair in both normal and abnormal patterns. Hypertrichosis can be caused by genetic factors, medications, 

malnutrition, hormones, tumors, and metabolic issues.

Hirsutism: This condition causes excessive hair growth in women – but features male patterns. These include beards, mustaches, or hair on the lower belly. 

This condition may be linked to hormonal problems, medications, tumors, or genetic factors.

Many treatment options for removing unwanted hair have been around for decades, such as shaving and waxing. But these methods offer only temporary solutions and have varying success rates.

IPL hair removal is a safe and effective way to permanently remove stubborn and unwanted hair. This treatment is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the USA. IPL can remove hair from anywhere on the body, including the face, arms, legs, underarms, bikini line, and more.

At our office, we use state-of-the-art IPL which emits highly concentrated light into the hair follicles. The pigment within the follicles will absorb the light resulting in permanent prevention of future hair growth while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. The IPL comes with cooling devices to decrease any discomfort and protect the skin’s top layer from excessive heat and potential pigmentation changes. Because hair continues to grow, repeat treatments are likely needed to destroy the hair follicles. IPL hair removal is repeated until the growth of hair is stopped completely. Providing you with satisfactory results and improving your confidence.

Laser hair removal is available for both women and men. Everyone has their own reason for wanting laser hair removal. One of the biggest perks of this treatment is the confidence that it restores when looking in the mirror. Many women seek laser hair removal treatments to help with the unwanted growth of facial hair that is caused by hormonal fluctuations, age, genetics, and other medical conditions.

No matter what your reasons are, Atlee Aesthetics is here to help you with your treatment. We offer a number of treatments, but laser hair removal is by far one of the most popular choices.

IPL hair removal is a safe and effective treatment for unwanted hair growth. There are very few side effects, and the treatment has little to no downtime. Therefore, most individuals would be ideal for IPL treatments if they have excessive hair growth that they want to get rid of. When you come in for your consultation with us, we will go over your past medical history and get a current list of medications that you are on. We will explore all of your treatment options and help you decide if IPL hair treatment is the best solution for you.

IPL hair removal treatments can be used to remove hair from the following areas:

  • Upper Lip
  • Chin
  • Sideburns
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Bikini Area
  • Chest
  • Hands
  • Feet
Side effects may include swelling, minor discomfort, and redness that can last a few days. But these are not major issues for most patients.

There are three phases of hair growth. For IPL hair removal to be the most effective in disabling the hair follicle, the hair will need to be in the active growth cycle. Most individuals can achieve their desired results in 6 treatments.

However, everyone is different, so you may require less, fewer, more treatments. Once treatment is completed, it could take up to 2 weeks for the hair to fall out. The cost of hair removal will depend on the number of sessions that you need to get permanent results.

Many of our patients will try at-home products before seeking laser hair removal. These may include waxing, tweezing, hair removal lotions, and even at-home lasers. These products may provide a temporary removal of hair, but the hair generally grows back in a matter of weeks or days. IP: hair removal is the most effective way to decrease the growth of unwanted facial and body hair. While at-home treatments are an option, most agree that IPL hair removal is best performed by trained and skilled professionals.

Results may vary, but on average you can expect to see:

Up to 25 percent hair growth reduction with each treatment.
Treatments are performed again every month to two months, depending on your individual needs.

Hair that may come back after treatment is typically finer in texture and lighter in color.

What Should I Expect?


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.

After Treatment

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.
