IPL Hair Removal
Love the idea of smooth skin without the inconvenience of waxing or shaving? With IPL hair removal, getting rid of unwanted hair couldn’t be easier! Treatments are fast, comfortable and long-lasting, and when you add up the money you save over a lifetime, extremely cost effective!
How does it work?
There are three stages of hair growth: anagen, catagen and telogen. IPL works by targeting hairs in the anagen growth phase when the hair follicle is lined with blood and stem cells.
Our qualified therapists place the the IPL handpiece against your skin releasing pulses of light that target pigment found in your hair. When the light is absorbed by the pigment it is quickly turned to heat which kills the growing cells that make the hair.
What hair does it work on?
IPL is effective for light brown or darker hair and those with darker skins (though they will require more treatments). Unfortunately, clients with blonde, red or white hair do not respond to IPL.
For those it suits, the treatment can be used on any areas you want, including face and neck, underarms, legs thighs, bikini/brazilian, chest and back, arms and hands, shoulders, buttocks, feet and toes.
How many treatments will I need?
Though hair reduces and becomes finer from the very first treatment, most of our clients take between eight and ten sessions to achieve the brilliant hair-free results they are after. After that it is bye bye to razors and wax for good!
