Q. Is IPL dangerous for the skin after long term use?
There have not been any reported side effects or skin damage from long term use of intense pulse light (IPL).
Q. Why is my hair growing despite treatments?
Results aren’t immediate, and individual results vary. Most users will begin to notice fewer hairs within 1-2 weeks after beginning treatment. During this time it may look like the hair is still growing, but it is actually being ‘pushed out’. Hair grows in a cycle of 3 different phases which lasts 18-24 months. Only hairs in the active growth phase are susceptible to treatment, which is why multiple treatments are required for optimal result. Another reason for continued growth could be that the area was missed during a treatment. Repeat the treatment regime when you notice regrowth.
Q. Why can’t I use i-LIGHT after recent sun exposure?
Sun exposure causes high levels of melanin to be present and exposes the skin to higher risk of burns or blisters following treatment.
