Imagine eliminating the frustrations of shaving, waxing and irritating shaving bumps from daily life. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), a system very similar to laser, offers hair removal for Champaign, Peoria and Bloomington, Illinois residents at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic.

These treatments have been proven to create a significant, permanent reduction in the number of growing hairs following each treatment session. The technology allows us to customize treatments according to your hair color, texture, skin type and body location. Intense Pulsed Light works by targeting melanin (darker pigment) in the hair shaft. Melanin absorbs the light energy, heats up the follicle then damages its ability to reproduce hair. Multiple treatments will be needed to assure we are treating each hair during its growth phase.

The most popular treatment areas for males are the back, chest and arms. The most popular treatments areas for females are the underarms, bikini area, lower legs and face. There are practically no activity restrictions or downtime, but you must refrain from tanning the treatment area 28 days before and 28 days after each session.

To learn more about these treatments, request a consultationrequest a consultation with Champaign / Bloomington laser hair removal specialist Dr. Castillo or call our office nearest you. We look forward to helping you enhance your look through skilled cosmetic procedures.
