IPL Hair Removal

Permanent hair reduction with light-based therapies has never been easier with the next generation of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Devices. The Palomar Starlux® delivers higher energies with a cooler hand piece resulting in more effective and more comfortable treatments.

IPL hair reduction can be performed on any part of the body, with the exception of the eye area. The light works on more than one follicle at a time, larger areas like the back, arms or legs are just as easily treatable as smaller areas like the upper lip or bikini line. Patients with darker hair color and lighter skin tones generally get faster results than patients with darker skin tones. Since the laser is attracted to the pigment of the hair follicle, patients with blonde, red or white hair colors are not suitable for this procedure. Depending on the density of the hair follicles and the color of the skin tone, a series of 6-9 treatments or more are recommended to achieve 80-95% reduction of hair.

The term “Laser Hair Removal” is being used loosely by the community to mean any light-based hair reduction method. Amongst these technologies, a non-laser modality, Intense-pulsed pulsed Light (IPL) has emerged as a highly popular means of achieving permanent hair reduction. Owner, Dr. Don Rainone has experienced multiple laser modalities and brands over the past decade and the client feedback overwhelmingly prefers IPL for its comfort, efficacy, and ease of scheduling. All IPL treatments at Smoothskin, Inc. are performed by 1,200 hr. NH licensed estheticians. Dr. Rainone provides guidance and direction to our team of estheticians and is available for skin consultation.

Smoothskin has provided 17,238 hair removal procedures since 2001 (as of 5/2/18).
