IPL for Facial Hair Reduction in Manhattan, New York


Intense Pulsed Laser (IPL) is a safe, effective, and painless way to permanently reduce hair. Women often avail themselves of IPL treatments to remove unwanted facial hair on their upper lip, chin, and cheeks.  Men use IPL to get rid of hair in the nose and ears, as well as between their eyebrows and on the back of their necks.  Although IPL is very effective, full results are notinstantaneous. You’ll need 4-6 treatments, each approximately 4 weeks apart.

Dr. Michelle Yagoda, one of NYC’s most experienced and respected female facial plastic surgeons, is the first to offer Clareon intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy with krypton-based technology. (Krypton is a kind of “noble gas,” not Superman’s home planet.) Unlike conventional IPL therapy that uses xenon lamps, Clareon uses krypton to optimally target the wavelengths absorbed by blood and melanin for better hair removal with less energy. New, patented krypton technology provides better and safer results in a fraction of the time it takes the competition. In addition, the Clareon has a built-in chiller in the handpiece. This means that the skin is instantaneously and temporarily frozen before and during the treatment, making it virtually painless.

Skin rejuvenation, treatment of vascular lesions, pigmented lesions and inflammatory acne, and permanent hair reduction can be achieved at a fraction of the time and with superior safety.
