Photoepilation is the best method to control unwanted hair growth.
The advantages that photoepilation offers both men and women over the traditional methods for hair reduction (i.e. waxing, threading, shaving) are:
- Its long lasting results (months to years!)
- It is not painful
- It doesn’t stimulate hair growth nor makes hair become thicker (unlike shaving),
- No “razor bumps” or irritation that last days
- Zero downtime
Is it a safe treatment?
Photoepilation is a very safe procedure: the settings for the IPL equipment are adjusted to the patient’s individual characteristics such as skin complexion and sensitivity always prioritizing the safety and comfort of our patients. In our clinic, Dr Jorge Lopez-Granja himself performs the procedure.You can’t be in better hands!
How much does it cost?
Don’t be concerned that just because the clinic is located in a private hospital your bill for IPL hair reduction will be huge. IPL is surprisingly affordable for the results that are expected. Each area of the body can be treated separately, so you can come in for as little as just an upper lip treatment.

How to prepare before each session
- Avoid waxing 2-3 weeks prior to the laser treatment.

- Shave or trim the areato be treated one or two days before (not on the day of the procedure).
Is photoepilation for you?
Photoepilation is a very safe procedure, but a medical procedure nonetheless.
You ought to have an consultation with Dr Lopez-Granja prior your fist session. The aim of this consultation is to discuss in detail what the procedure is about, to determine if there is any reason you shouldn’t have the procedure (based on your medical history, concomitant conditions, medications or supplements you are on, etc.) and finally to review and sign the informed consent.
