IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Reduction
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Reduction is the first photo epilation technology proven to treat unwanted hair safely on many skin types. Highly controlled flashes of light selectively absorbed by hair-filled follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages or destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle. All without damaging the surrounding tissue.
IPL permanent hair reduction, sometimes referred to as laser hair removal, guarantees permanent hair reduction for long-term smooth skin. It is a safe and effective, and an increasingly popular hair removal treatment.
A customised treatment program will be designed for you along with an estimate of how many treatments you may need in order to meet your expectations. Treatment sessions are usually 4 to 6 weeks apart.
- For best results do not wax or tweeze hairs for four weeks prior to your treatment.
- If you shave the area prior to your treatment, leaving a small patch of hair for your therapist to access colour and thickness in order to achieve best results.
- Avoid sun exposure throughout your course of treatments. Alway use a high quality sunscreen to protect the skin at all times during your treatment.
- Soothe the area post-treatment with a high quality moisturiser, we can recommend moisturisers at your treatment session.
- Don’t tweezer or pull at hairs, they will fall out naturally over a period of time.
- Exfoliate three days after your treatment with an exfoliating mitt.
- Don’t expose the treated areas to tanning sunbeds for the duration of your treatment schedule.
- Avoid excessive exercise and sweating immediately after your treatment to avoid irritation.
- Don’t use AHAs or retinol on the treated area for three days before and after your treatment as it may cause skin irritation.
- Avoid swimming in chlorinated water for 24 hours after your IPL treatment.
- Attending all IPL sessions as scheduled by your Therapist will maximise the benefits of the hair reduction treatments.
