How can IPL hair removal at Comprehensive Laser improve my quality of life?

Stop spending thousands of dollars on temporary hair removal procedures. Find out how our IPL treatments can help! No more waxing, tweezing or shaving with our IPL laser hair removal system. Say goodbye to ingrown hairs and stubble! If you are struggling with unwanted hair and are tired of shaving, tweezing, or waxing, you are not alone. Many people struggle with time-consuming hair removal treatments, only to find hair growing out again.

How does IPL hair removal work to achieve stunningly smooth skin?

A Comprehensive, Personalized Approach

The Palomar StarLux 500 is a versatile device that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to effectively remove unwanted hair. During your treatment, the StarLux 500 will shine a beam of intense pulsed light right into the hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles will absorb the light, destroying the hair at its root. You can remove unwanted hair from your legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, and chest.

IPL treatments target hairs without damaging the surrounding skin. Each pulse takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at a time. In most cases, patients will see significant, long-lasting hair reduction after about six to eight treatments.

“Quick, Painless and Easy! The people were very nice and knowledgeable. Highly recommend Comprehensive Laser to anyone interested in hair removal. Well worth it!”

Am I a candidate?

While most patients can tolerate IPL treatments with no downtime and minimal discomfort, you will need to be evaluated by a member of our clinical staff before being medically cleared for treatment. Even if you have had IPL treatments before, a consultation with a member of our medical team is necessary prior to starting any laser or IPL treatments. Chapter 10.32.09 of the Code of Maryland Regulations states that all patients must be evaluated by a Physician/PA/NP prior to being treated.

How should I prepare for an IPL hair removal treatment?

Make sure you do not pluck or wax the area you plan to treat for about four to six weeks prior to your treatment. You should also decrease your exposure to the sun before the procedure to make sure you get the best results. Be sure to let our Physicians, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners know if are using ANY medications – prescription, over the counter or herbal.

Shave the area 24 hours prior to your first appointment. Do not apply any makeup, deodorant, lotions, perfume or cologne over the area you’d like to have treated.

What should I expect?

You will experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. You will need to schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later and continue treatments until all the hair stops growing. You should see significant hair reduction after your first treatment. Be sure to avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear plenty of sunblock to protect your skin.

What does recovery entail?

After an IPL laser hair removal treatment there are several important ways you can care for your skin. Be sure to wear loose, cotton clothes that put minimal friction on the treated area. You should abstain from using the gym, the sauna, the steam room, the Jacuzzi and the pool. Avoid touching, itching or rubbing your skin. You can apply a Post Laser Enzyme Gel to the treatment area.

What We're Doing About COVID-19

At Comprehensive Laser, your health, safety and happiness are our top priorities. We have been monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation very carefully. We will be partially reopening the office beginning Monday, May 11th. We will continue to follow updates from local, state and federal authorities and if we receive different guidance we will respond appropriately and notify you immediately.

We have taken a series of precautionary steps to ensure your safety:

  1. We are performing enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of all patient care areas on a regular basis and in between all patient visits.
  2. We will avoid having patients congregate in our reception area. Upon check-in, you will be shown to either a private exam room or consultation room depending upon the nature of your appointment.
  3. All members of our staff are screened daily for COVID symptoms and are asked to stay home if they exhibit any signs or symptoms of the disease.
  4. We screen all patients entering our facility with COVID symptom screening questionnaires.
  5. ALL of our providers wear surgical face masks, plastic face shields and the necessary personal protective equipment to ensure patient and provider safety.
  6. We use hospital-grade disinfectants (Cavi-Wipes, Cavicide) to clean patient rooms and equipment. CaviCide is a convenient, ready-to-use, intermediate-level surface disinfectant that is effective against TB, HBV, HCV, viruses (hydrophilic and lipophilic), bacteria (including MRSA and VRE) and fungi. It can be used in the NICU, operating rooms, isolation rooms, patient care areas and laboratories. When used as directed, it will also effectively clean and decontaminate critical and semi-critical instrumentation.
  7. All of our equipment and protective eyewear are cleaned after every use.
  8. Plexiglass shields will be in place at the check-in and check out areas to prevent aerosol transmission.
  9. We offer "No touch" payment methods such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and online invoicing.

For the time being, we ask that you come to your appointments alone to limit the traffic through the office. We also ask that you leave children in the care of a family member or a sitter. If you have had a recent fever, sore throat, cold- or flu-like symptoms or contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19 please call immediately to reschedule your appointment.

As always we appreciate your support of and trust in our practice and we look forward to seeing you soon!
