How does IPL remove hair?
Highly controlled flashes of light are selectively absorbed by hair 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.
What happens during treatment?
Your treatment begins by trimming away the hair above the skin. You will be asked to wear glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. A cold gel may be applied over the treatment area. The IPL handpiece is then applied to your skin and pulses of light begins disabling your unwanted hair. When the gel is removed much of the hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area falls out over the next week or two.
What does the Treatment feel like?
Each pulse of light feels like a slight sting or pinch similar to the snap of an elastic band. No local anaesthesia is required and most people tolerate the treatment well.
Can all hair be treated?
IPL’s unique design offers you customised treatment according to your hair colour, texture and the location of the body hair. Any hair with at least some pigment in it (black, brown, red and even blonde) can be treated effectively.
Is IPL safe for all skin types?
IPL is the first photoepilation procedure proven to effectively treat unwanted hair on all skin types. This will be discussed with you in detail during your consultation.
Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare.You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours. On rare ocassions, some blistering or bruising may occur but typically resolves quickly. Also the skin can become darker or lighter but will generally return to normal within a few weeks.
Following the treatment you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately.
What kind of results should I expect?
IPL technology has been proven to create a permanent reduction in the number of regrowing hairs following each treatment in most skin types. The number of treatments required depends on your specific kind of hair and skin.
A customized treatment program will be designed for you, along with an estimate of how many treatments you may need in order to meet your expectations.
