IPL Hair Removal

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is great for permanent hair reduction. Unwanted hair can be a pain, spending money on waxing and shaving that is short lived and a chore. IPL is a safe and conveinient treatment for people who suffer with embarrassing or unwanted hair. It’s great for people who suffer with conditions like PCOS. Multiple areas can be treated at the same time with little down time, and results can be seen in just a few sessions.

What is IPL hair removal treatment?

48 hours before the treatment we will fill in a consultation form, carry out a patch test and chat about your desired outcome and suitability. You will be then asked to shave before treatment.

On the day, you will be given safety goggles to protect your eyes from the light. The treated area will be wiped to remove any makeup or oils.

Light energy is applied to the skin causing heating of the hair follicle pigment. This effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells, resulting in no more growth from the follicle. The Applicator has a cooling system to make your experience as pain free and comfortable as possible.

What will I see after the treatment?

The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may appear slightly raised or bumpy. This is quite normal and is an indication of a good treatment response. It will usually settle a few hours post treatment.

Adverse reactions are rare but may include a small blister, burn, or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.

After treatment, the hair follicle will go through a shedding process of 1-3 weeks and in this time will appear to grow until it is pushed out by the skin.

The time and number of sessions required depends on the area. The number of sessions averages around 6-10 before permanent hair reduction is acheived. Each session is booked in 4-6 weeks apart.

Who is suitable for IPL hair removal?

Best results are achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair. Darker, thicker hair has a better response to treatment as it has a higher concentration of melanin within the hair follicle. Fair hair, however, contains less melanin and is harder to treat. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment. Please contact for suitability.

Skin Rejuvenation 

IPL therapy can also be used to minimise and fade:
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
IPL energy can be used to treat areas of the body where age has produced pigmented blemishes such as age spots, also known as sun spots. Light energy is directed at the area, where it destroys the pigment. It is also effective at fading freckles and sun damage. 2-3 sessions may be needed for desired results. Pigment may go darker until it peels off in 7-10 days. Spf30+ sunscreen will need to be used.

IPL can be used to treat acne scarring and rosacea, sending light energy to the area which destroys the skin bacteria responsible for acne and triggering healthy new cells to develop.

Spider veins
IPL energy removes vessels without bruising or crusting at the treatment sites. There may be a pinkness that develops in the treated area that may last 1-1½ hours. Usually, 2 to 3 treatment sessions are needed depending on the number of blood vessels present.

Fine lines/wrinkles/stretch marks
As we age and change size, fine lines, wrinkles and red stretch marks appear. IPL can be used to stimulate the area to produce more collagen to plump the skin and fade wrinkles. Red Stretch mark colours will fade with treatment. However, IPL will not work on silver and white stretch marks

The number of IPL treatment sessions may vary depending on the exact treatment and results. Suitability also depends on skin type and the results of the consultation. Consultations and patch tests are needed, where treatments will be described in detail to ensure you are happy to go ahead. For more info, please contact Rejuvenation Ark!
