During the procedure, you may feel a pinching sensation. The technology used at the iv.clinic has a cooling component and most patients report being very comfortable during treatment.
Treatments may only take as little as 15-30 minutes. A larger area, like two full legs, may take up to 60 minutes. Most patients receive 6-10 treatments per area, 3-6 weeks apart for the face, and 3-8 weeks apart for the body for optimal results.
Your skin may look dry and feel a little itchy if the area was dry-shaven before starting the treatment. Moisturizing can help relieve the itch. Other than that, you shouldn’t really feel any different after your treatment. Results depend on how your hair grows. Some people see permanent hair removal, others may need sporadic touch-up treatments to maintain the results.
There is no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
Avoid tanning for at least 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your treatment, and wear sunscreen. You should also avoid hot baths, massages, or any treatment that requires direct contact with the skin for the first 2 days after your treatment. Makeup can be applied immediately after your treatment, but make sure you put on sunscreen first.
I have darker skin – can I still get this treatment done?
IPL hair removal is most suitable to light to medium skin tones, it’s best to consult with our technician to see if the treatment is right for you.
Can I do it during my lunch break?
Treatments are usually quick, depending on what part of the body you’re getting treated. If it’s a smaller area, it may only take as little as 15-30 minutes. A larger area, like two full legs, may take up to 60 minutes.
Will I feel any discomfort?
The applicator has a cooling feature built into it to make the treatment comfortable. You might feel a bit of discomfort if you’re treating a more sensitive area, like along the bikini line. If you find it too uncomfortable, let the operator know and they can adjust the treatment accordingly.
