Intense pulse light (IPL) uses a form of light therapy to provide a quick, pain-free and safe way to remove hair. IPL is gentle and is great for those with sensitive skin. The result is smoother, hair-free skin with reduction in the future hair growth in the area.
How it works
IPL uses multiple wavelengths of broad spectrum light to target pigment in the hair. Energy is then absorbed and damages the hair follicle. Unlike Waxing - you won't get an immediate smooth result but instead the hairs will fall out over the next few weeks. Future hair growth however will be permanently reduced due to the reduction of blood flow to the hair follicle following each treatment. Results do vary depending on hair and skin colour, but this will be discussed in your consultation
Treatments are booked at 4-6 week intervals and course of at least 6 treatments is recommended.
Before your IPL treatment
You will need your skin to be clean. Please don't apply creams, fake tan or any other products that may irritate your skin. You must avoid sun exposure on the treatment area for a better result because the lighter the skin and the darker the hair, the better result we get for hair reduction using IPL
After your IPL treatment
There is no downtime so you can return to your daily schedule. If your skin feels or looks dry - you can moisturise the area.
