IPL technology offers a gentle, non-invasive, long lasting solution to unwanted hair on the face, legs, bikini, underarms, nipples, abdomen, hands and feet. Laser hair removal works by light penetrating the skin and being absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft which increases the temperature in the hair follicle and destroys it. Each pulse of light feels like a slight pinch or sting similar to the snap of a rubber band. IPL technology has been proven to achieve a permanent reduction in the number of regrowing hairs following each IPL treatment in most skin types. The number of laser treatments required depends on several factors relating to your specific kind of hair and skin. It works best on darker hairs and lighter skinned individuals. Even following one session hairs are reduced. Consultation is free and a customised treatment plan will be designed for you along with an estimate of how many treatments will be required.
Hair should be trimmed back above the skin a few days before appointment. Goggles are used to protect the eyes from the bright light. A cold gel is spread over the treatment area and the hand-piece from the IPL machine is then applied to the skin and treatment begins. Following treatment, the gel is removed and the hairs fall out over the next few days. The skin is cooled. SPF cream is applied if it is facial hair that is being treated.Back to Top
