Permanent Hair Removal through Pulsed Light
The Old Solutions: If you live with unwanted hair, you’ve already found: Shaving is a daily nuisance. Waxing – a painful and only short-term solution. Electrolysis is effective, but since it only treats one hair follicle at a time, it’s not practical for large areas and is extremely time consuming.

The Palomar Pulsed Light Alternative:
Our Palomar Pulsed Light Systems offer a truly lasting solution for unwanted hair.
Permanent: Concentrated pulses of light loosen the hair and disable the cells responsible for new hair growth.
Fast: Small areas, such as the underarms or upper lip, can be treated in 10 minutes or less, and even large area, like the back or legs, can be treated in under a half hour.
Comfortable: Various cooling methods keep the light pulses mild and skin-safe, allowing for more comfortable treatments than electrolysis and waxing.
Convenient: Unlike waxing, there is no need to let hair grow out between treatments. You can remain hair-free all the time!

Frequently asked questions:
How does Palomar pulsed light work? Palomar Systems use specialized handpieces which filter light from different parts of the spectrum. Each band of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as hair reduction, sunspot removal, and acne treatment. The hair removal handpieces emit pulses of light into the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the hair growth cells.

What body area can I get treated? Any area, except around the eyes. The upper lip, face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, chest and back can all be treated.

What are Palomar treatments like? Your Nurse treatment provider will move the handpiece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone, and a mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the handpiece is being pulsed.

What should I expect after treatment? Immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours, and can be soothed with cold gel ir ice packs. The treated hair will continue to appear for 7-30 days post treatment–this is not new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expelled from the skin. At any given time, some of your hair is not in a phase of active growth. Therefore you will need more than one treatment to affect the growth of all your unwanted hair. Typically, several treatments will be necessary to achieve permanent hair reduction.
