Hair Removal An Overview
Typical means for removing unwanted hair can be challenging. Shaving lasts one or two days and waxing lasts a few weeks. Only professional hair removal is the way to ensure permanent hair reduction.*
Permanent hair reduction is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments at our Hamilton, NJ office.* And this isn’t just for women’s leg hair – hair removal is ideal for embarrassing or annoying hair on almost any part of the body, of men or women.

- Chest, back, abdomen
- Bikini area
- Face and neck

Hair Removal What to Expect
IPL hair removal is safe, as it targets the hair follicles and leaves the skin generally untouched. The light is designed to affect only the hair follicles allowing the healthy surrounding skin to remain unaffected reducing downtimes and side effects.
Many people have IPL on their lunch breaks and return to work immediately following the procedure. Most patients will require 4-6 treatment sessions to fully remove unwanted hair. Convenient, and lasting, IPL hair removal will save patients time and money long-term, allowing them to enjoy smooth, hairless skin.
Dr. Guarino will require you to wear safety goggles to protect your eyes from the light. The handheld device will be used to target hair follicles. Patients typically experience little to no discomfort but may feel a mild pinching sensation as Dr. Guarino works.
After IPL hair removal you may experience:
- Darkening of the skin, similar to a mild suntan or sunburn
- Lightening of the skin
- Pinching or stinging sensation during IPL treatment
- Mild swelling, pinkness or redness of the skin
Side effects of IPL hair removal are temporary, lasting 2 – 3 days. In some cases, it may take several weeks for side effects to recover. Dr. Guarino will make personalized recommendations on how to properly care for your skin type after hair removal.
