The Telogen phase, or resting phase, is when the unnourished hair falls out and new hair begins to grow in its place. IPL hair removal is only successful during the anagen / active growth phase. Because hair grows in different stages all over the body, multiple treatments are needed to destroy the hair follicle at each anagen growth phase. The number of treatments needed depends on various factors including skin type, hair color, hair density, as well as the body area being treated. most patients require 5 to 8 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve desired result.

This procedure yields longest-lasting results and is the best solution for dealing with unwanted hair.
