Laser Hair Removal System that Inspire Med Spa uses:  Palomar Pulsed Light Hair Removal

Older Hair Removal Solutions:

If you live with unwanted hair you've probably tried some of the typical solutions, such as shaving, waxing, and electrolysis. If so, you've also found that:

- shaving is a daily nuisances.

- waxing is painful and only short term solution

- electrolysis is effective but since it only treats one hair follicle at a time, its not practical for large areas and is extremely time-consuming

Pulsed Light Alternative:

Palomar Pulsed Light systems offer a lasting solution for unwanted hair.

Permanent: Concentrate pulses of light loosen the hair and disable the cells responsible for new hair growth

Fast: Small areas, such as the underarms or upper lip, can be treated in 10 minutes or less, and even large areas, like the back or legs, can be treated in under a half hour

Comfortable: Various cooling methods keep the light pulses mild and skin-safe, allowing for more comfortable treatments than electrolysis and waxing.

Convenient: Unlike waxing, there is no need to let hair grow out between treatments. You can remain hair free all the time.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How does Palomar Pulsed Light Work?
    • Palomar Systems use specialized hand pieces which filter light from different parts of the spectrum has a wavelength that is ideal for different treatments, such as hair reduction, sunspot removal, and acne treatment.
    • The Palomar hair removal hand pieces emit pulses of light into hair follicles and converted to heat. The heat then loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for growing new hair.
  • How is Palomar pulsed light different from a laser?
    • Pulsed light systems and laser are very similar, but Palomar Pulsed Light systems use a much larger treatment window than most lasers. This spreads light over a wider area of skin and allows faster coverage of the skin and quicker treatments as a result.
  •  What body areas can I get treated?
    • Any area, except around the eyes. The upper lip, face, neck, underarms, bikini line, legs, chest, and back can all be treated
  • What are Palomar treatments like?
    • Your treatment provider will move the hand piece over your skin, pulsing it all the while. Each pulse will send a beam of light through your skin. A flashing light, an audible tone, and mild sensation on the skin will tell you when the hand piece is being pulsed. 
  • What should I expect after treatment?
    • immediately after treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours and can be soothed with cold gel or ice packs
    • The treated hair will continue to appear for 7-30 days post treatment. This is not new hair growth, but the treated hairs being expelled from the skin
    • At any given time, some of your hair is not in a phase of active growth. Therefore you will need more than one treatment to affect the growth of all your unwanted hair.
    • Typically, several treatments will be necessary to achieve permanent hair reduction.
