IPL hair removal, treatment of arms and legs

You may know it, that annoying tickling sensation after shaving. Just when you think your skin is smooth and perfect, it starts. Those endless itches and red bumps that are as irritating as a grain of sand in your sock. This is exactly the kind of hair removal woes we address with our powerful IPL hair removal treatment. Forget the daily shaving and the fight against stubble that stings. Choose the gentleness of IPL and say goodbye to itches and irritations. Time for a smooth start!

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal is a treatment for reducing unwanted hair growth on the face, arms, legs and torso. This method has been scientifically proven for this application and offers an effective and safe way to reduce hair growth long-term.

  2. Medium Treatment (M Hair Remove Arm Leg)

    • Both lower legs
    • Both upper legs
    • Both upper arms
  3. Major treatment (L Hair Remove Arm Leg)

Treatment with IPL: safe and secure

IPL hair removal is an effective method of eliminating unwanted hair and offers a solution for both men and women who suffer from hair growth. This technique is known for its precision and long-lasting results, making it still a favorite choice for those aiming for smooth and hair-free skin. At Medicadermis we use a very powerful medical IPL system that is comparable in effectiveness to the top professional permanent hair removal lasers.

If you are considering permanently reducing the hair growth on your legs or elsewhere on your body with IPL, it is important that your hair is dark enough. There are many hair removal providers who make attractive promises about permanent hair removal. However, no system can guarantee 100% hair removal. A realistic result is that 70% to 90% of the hair can be removed. In addition, hair can grow back in the long term. This is because a percentage of hair follicles can recover and some of the hair follicles can be influenced by hormones, which can change fine hair into coarser hair. Interim maintenance is therefore wise to maintain the result. With the technologies we have today, we cannot tackle white, blonde or red hair. This is only possible with electric hair removal.

Your skin should not be sun-tanned before starting the treatment. These factors, both the color of your hair and the unique individual characteristics of your skin, influence the effectiveness of the treatment. By taking this into account, you increase the chance of a successful outcome. Before we start a hair removal treatment, we always carry out a thorough examination to give you the best advice about light and laser therapy. This preliminary research allows us to estimate how well the treatment suits your hair color, skin type and condition, so that you get the most benefit from the treatments.

Since approximately eight treatments (the current industry standard) are needed to achieve a good effect, it will be assessed after the fourth session of the IPL treatment whether the hair removal treatment is effective for you. This evaluation moment allows us to decide whether it is useful to continue the treatments or whether it is better to stop. This way we ensure that you invest in treatments that actually contribute to achieving your hair removal goals.

The benefits of IPL hair removal at a glance:

  • Safety and Comfort : A non-invasive method that provides a relatively comfortable experience,
  • Versatile and adaptable : IPL hair removal uses a broad spectrum of light waves that are absorbed by the melanin (skin pigment) in the hairs. This energy transforms into heat, which damages the hair follicles and over time reduces hair growth. The unique thing about IPL is its adaptability to various skin and hair types, making it a flexible choice for everyone.
  • Certainty : IPL treatment of the skin is harmless, provided it is carried out with the correct medically certified equipment and by a trained professional. The technology has been a proven treatment among medical specialists for decades. There are no indications of an increased risk of oncological consequences for the skin. The UV spectrum is absent in the flash of light.
IPL treatment: before and after

Preparation

  • Avoid sunbathing : Make sure your skin is not sun-tanned before the treatment. A lighter skin color ensures a more effective treatment.
  • Shave the treatment area : Shave your arms and legs the day before the treatment.
  • No other hair removal methods : Avoid methods that pull hair from the follicle, such as waxing, plucking and depilatory cream, for 4 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Don't use certain products : Avoid using products that make your skin more sensitive in the weeks before your treatment. This includes blood thinners, certain antibiotics, and products with retinoids or high concentrations of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs). If you may already be taking blood thinners or antibiotics, consult your doctor and always inform the skin therapist. Sometimes it is wise to reschedule the appointment for a later time.

Aftercare

  • Sun protection : Protect your skin from the sun after treatment to minimize the risk of hyperpigmentation (dark discoloration).
  • Avoid heat : Stay away from hot showers, baths, and saunas immediately after treatment, do not exercise excessively immediately after treatment
  • Shaving between treatments : If you remove hair between treatments, choose shaving instead of waxing, plucking or using depilatory creams. These methods remove the hair at the root, which can negatively affect the effectiveness of the next hair removal session.
  • Hydrate your skin : Keep your skin supple and hydrated with a mild, moisturizing lotion.
Alternatives to IPL hair removal

In addition to IPL treatments, Medicadermis offers a range of additional treatment options to improve your skin condition, including:

Electric hair removal

Electric hair removal, also known as electrolysis, is a method in which a fine needle is inserted into each hair follicle. A small electrical current is passed through this needle which destroys the hair follicle, resulting in permanent hair removal. This method is very effective. One of the biggest benefits of electric hair removal is that it is suitable for all hair types and skin colors, including light-colored hair that IPL or laser treatments cannot detect.

Blend hair removal

Blend hair removal is an advanced form of electrolysis that combines both thermolysis (heat energy) and galvanic (chemical) current to destroy the hair follicle. This combination ensures a more efficient and often less painful treatment. The heat and chemical reaction effectively and permanently destroy the hair follicle. Similar to traditional electrolysis, blend hair removal is suitable for all hair types and skin colors and can be used on any area of ​​the body.

Comparison with IPL

Although IPL is suitable for larger areas and can provide faster treatment, it has limitations regarding hair color and skin type, as previously mentioned. Electric and blend hair removal offer a universal solution, but are more time consuming as each hair follicle must be treated individually. Therefore very suitable after light or laser treatment in case lighter hairs remain.

In the competitive market of beauty and skin treatments, it is crucial to find a trusted partner. One that not only excels in quality and service, but that also uses the best and proven technology.

The reality of the beauty industry

The beauty industry is now flooded with all kinds of laser, IPL and other types of devices, many of which do not meet the quality requirements according to our Western medical standards. There is also often no scientific evidence for treatments. Variation in equipment, lack of basic dermatological knowledge, but also insufficient training and experience of the practitioner can lead to unsatisfactory results. Even to an increased risk of side effects or skin damage for the patient.

Feel beautiful and confident with the quality of medicadermis.

We go for the capital K when it comes to quality and work with, among others, the M22 Stellar from Lumenis. This system is used worldwide for its superior performance in hospitals and clinics by dermatologists. The M22 stands for reliable treatment for a range of skin treatments, including pigment spots. And finally, not unimportant: our equipment receives frequent technical maintenance. Because just as you cannot write sharply with a blunt pencil, an uncalibrated laser or used IPL tube is not effective.

Our choice of equipment and expert care enable us to provide you with safe, proven effective and personalized treatments. Your (skin) needs are guaranteed to be in good hands at medicadermis.
