INTENSE PULSED LIGHT

IPL is a long term solution to unwanted hair for both men and women. Using intense pulses of light to destroy hair follicles at the root, it is suitable for treatments of both the face and body, including upper lip, underarm, bikini line, legs and torso.

PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION

IPL is most suited to darker hair - targeting melanin within the hair follicles of which a higher concentration of melanin is found.

It works best at removing hair when it’s in the active growth phase, but not all the hair in the treatment area will be in this phase at any given time. We therefore spread our IPL treatments out over a period of time, to ensure that hair which isn’t treated in one session is affected in the next. A course of eight treatments is recommended to achieve permanent hair reduction. Treatments are fast, safe and effective, often with noticeable improvements after just a couple of sessions.

The gap between sessions is usually four weeks for facial areas and six weeks for body areas. For the best results we recommend that you complete the full series of treatment sessions.
