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