Here at LePA, we have 2 types of permanent hair removal services that we offer. These services are often done in combination to give you the fastest, safest and most permanent results possible.
If you aren’t a good candidate for laser because your hair color, skin color or skin type then electrolysis is the option for you! It is the only FDA approved permanent form of hair removal. It’s detailed nature allows for the ability to shape your hair and avoid affecting unwanted areas. We work hair by hair, cauterizing each hair follicle and with consistent appointments the hair is permanently removed. It’s a great option for eyebrows, upper lip, sideburns, chin or any other facial hair. It’s also suitable for areolae, bikini line, toes or underarms.
IPL (Intense Pulse Light)
This treatment is like a laser treatment, but instead of the concentrated light laser uses, it uses broad spectrum light to treat your skin. This means that the treatment is less painful than laser, not as harmful to your skin and can be done on a wider range of skin tones. IPL has many added skin benefits such as reducing hyper-pigmentation, scarring and redness. We work on wide variety of areas and it’s suitable for larger areas as well. This treatment helps reduce hair, but not remove it completely. So when working on a new client a we typically use IPL first to reduce hair and then electrolysis to clean it up, if the client is a good candidate.
