Another area of improvement that Juventas Esthetic Center focuses on is eliminating unwanted hair growth.  In one of life’s many injustices, we can grow hair where we want it the least on our chin, underarms and bikini for women and the back and shoulders for men.   There are methods of safely getting rid of this hair not to mention eliminate the countless hours you spend waxing, shaving, tweezing or simply accepting it as a lost cause.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a remarkably efficient procedure that effectively treats sun damage, age spots (sun-induced freckles), and broken capillaries as well as improves signs of rosacea while stimulating collagen production.  IPL has also been used to effectively treat scars both new and old.   The same technology, Intense Pulsed Light, with some modification can also be used to treat unwanted hair.  It is one technology with many amazing applications.

How is Intense Pulsed Light performed?Juventas_back_fm12

Our highly trained Certified Physicians Assistant or a licensed nurse or aestheticians will ascertain your concerns and give you specific details about your treatment.  Before treatment a soothing gel will be applied to the treatment area.  During the treatment, precise pulses of light are applied to the area of concern.  Cold air may be used at this time to make you comfortable.

What can I expect after treatment?

If you are having treatment for pigmented lesions (freckles and age spots), keep in mind that the spots will darken slightly and then fade away after 7 – 10 days.   Most people will experience mild temporary redness, similar to sunburn, in the treated area shortly after treatment.  This will not interfere with normal activities and will subside quickly.  If hair removal, broken capillaries or a scar is treated, you can expect a sunburn feeling as well as mild pinkness in the area that resolves within a few hours.

What areas can I have treated?

Any area of the body can be treated for removal of age spots and broken capillaries as well as hair removal concerns.   You may not have treatment on any area that has a real orartificial tan.

How many treatments for hair removal?

Hair removal treatment is only effective on hairs that are in a growth phase.  Because your hair grows in cycles, 6 treatments spaced 6 – 8 weeks apart are average to achieve full results.  Often, hair removal significantly improves bumps associated with hair growth (folliculitis) as well as suppressing hair growth between sessions.
