IPL Hair Removal
HAIR FREE HASSLE FREE!
Fed up with shaving, waxing and stubble. Well smooth skin really can be yours with permanent hair reduction. More men and women now than ever before are using this method to end the annoyance of unsightly hair. This is because laser light treatments are more affordable now and increasing numbers of people can see the long term benefits it gives them. The single most important reason has to be the freedom it can give you from the time and energy spent on traditional methods of removing hair. Quite often these methods are not satisfactory, many people complain of stubble from shaving, bumpy skin and in-growing hairs from waxing.
How does IPL work?
IPL emits & dual band of yellow and red light which is particularly effective for hair removal. The red light targets the melanin within the hair shaft causing the follicle temperature to rise and the consequent destruction of the follicle whilst the yellow light destroys the germ cells preventing any possibility of re-growth. Successful treatment can reduce hair growth by up to 90%.
What does the treatment involve?
You wear protective eyewear while the IPL operator moves the hand piece slowly over your skin firing the IPL light exactly where required. Cooling is applied to the skin to minimise heat sensation. IPL can be used to treat any area of the body and on most skin types. Prior to treatment we will discuss in detail how treatment works and assess if it is suitable for you. A test patch is carried out on all clients to observe the effect. Afterwards treated hair will naturally fall out of the follicle 2 weeks after treatment.
Are there any side effects?
With the majority of treatments there are little or no visible after-effects so you can resume your normal routine quickly. Some parts of the body are more sensitive than others and may redden. An aftercare gel is applied in all cases and any redness should settle within hours. As with any heat treatment there are risks but they will be fully discussed before treatment.
How many treatments are required?
In order to achieve the best results we recommend a course of 6-8 treatments.
How effective is treatment?
The number of treatments required varies, depending on the density and location of hair growth. Most people require at least 6-8 treatments. However facial hair, especially around the chin can take longer. Treatment is required every 4-6 weeks for the first few sessions.
Anything else I should be aware of?
Treatment cannot be carried out if you are under 18, planning to start a family or are pregnant or if you suffer from certain conditions such as epilepsy or have had skin cancer. Avoid exposure to the sun and sun beds for at least 4 weeks before and after treatment. A test patch is required before treatment.
