At BodyBrite Grand Rapids we are advocates of permanent hair removal whenever possible. Even though the ease of permanently removing unwanted hair can’t be touched by other hair removal methods, it is important to note that there are circumstances where IPL laser hair removal is not appropriate. Some of the circumstances in which people would not be a candidate for IPL laser hair removal are: individuals receiving chemotherapy, people with skin type 4 or 5 (referring to the darkness of the skin as measured by the Fitzpatrick scale), people with white, gray, light red or very blonde hair or on areas that are tattooed and more. For these people, the best alternative is gentle and effective waxing system used by an experienced skin care specialist.
IPL HAIR REMOVAL LIMITATIONS
Another reason to consider waxing services at BodyBrite Grand Rapids is because the laser can neither treat the area underneath the brow nor in between the brow. Men and women alike value a cleanly arched eyebrow.
