Avoid threading or waxing while undergoing IPL Permanent Hair Removal Treatments.

The bulb of the hair must remain in the follicle of your skin in order for IPL treatments to be effective. I advise my patients to continue shaving until you're done with your treatments.

I hope this is helpful for you.
