The treatment involves passing an intense flash of light or pulse through the prism, which directs the healing rays to the affected area. The light treatment is initially administered to prevent possible damage to the skin and to ascertain its tolerance level. The doctor proceeds only after he is convinced that the patient's skin is capable of undergoing further intensive treatment. Intense Pulse Light therapy involves passing intense light through the tissue of the skin until it strikes the hair shafts or the hair roots, where the melanin is located. The light striking the dark-colored melanin gets converted into heat energy causing most of the hair roots and shafts to vaporize. The heat radiated by the light also destroys the hair-producing papila or the entire hair follicle. The treatment is usually performed every 3-4 weeks.

Is there a cut-off point of 'sexiness' between stubble and beard? At what point does stubble become gross?

Well without turning this into a naughty story lets just say my wife complained about all she had to go through, hair removal wise while we men didn't have too... Agreeing with her point of view I allowed her to coat me with some of that hair removal cream... you can get past the smell but if left on to long you get one heck of a chemical burn! trust me I walked bowlegged for a week... no sir been there done that have the tee shirt as proof... its good old fashioned razors for me buddy!

why cant men use a cream to remove beard hair just like the cream women use on there legs \ arms etc. then after a few minutes they just rinse away the hair.. this cream kills of the hair and keeps the hairs growing for a few weeks..so why cant men get a cream to do the same thing?..just think once every 2 weeks rubbing some cream on your face \ beard area and then a simple rinse to remove the hair and thats it for another 2 weeks....no more 5 o'clock shadow or your wife \ girlfriend saying your stubble is giving me a beard rash when kissing....maybe there's to many company's making money of shaving products to allow anyone to market a cream...... any thoughts
