Hair Removal

Pure+Simple is using innovative and safe med-aesthetic systems that offer lasting hair reduction/removal results with minimum discomfort in a relatively small number of treatment sessions. The advanced technologies, based on pulsed light or photoepilation, enables personalized, precise treatments that achieve effective, permanent results. Using these technologies, the hair reduction is achieved when energy is transformed to heat in the active growth follicles, coagulating the follicle and limiting regrowth. The technology's high heat power delivers noticeable results in less time and these results are targeted so as to protect the surrounding skin.

Q & A for IPL Hair Removal

Q: What is the average rate of hair growth? 
A: About 0.35 mm a day, but this varies depending on body area, age and gender.
Q: How many treatments are required? 
A: The typical regimen is 5 - 7 treatment sessions, spaced 4 - 12 weeks apart, depending on the body area.
Q: Why are multiple treatments necessary? 
A: About 20 - 25% of human hair follicles on the body are in the active growth phase at any given time. This is the percentage of hair follicles that can be destroyed in a single treatment session. In order to eliminate almost 70% of the hair, treatment has to be repeated until the desired result is achieved. 
Q: Are IPL Hair Removal treatments painful?
A: No. During the procedure, a slight, momentary stinging sensation may be felt, but not pain.
