Intense Pulsed Laser (IPL) is a safe, effective, and painless way to permanently reduce body hair. Women often avail themselves of IPL treatments to remove unwanted hair from their armpits, legs, and bikini line. Men use IPL to get rid of hair on their necks and backs. Although IPL is very effective, full results are not instantaneous. 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 for better results with less energy. New, patented krypton technology provides better and safer hair removal 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.
