How does IPL work?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology has come of age since its inception over 15 years ago. IPL targets the pigment in the hair and either damages or destroys the hair follicle, thus preventing future hair growth. It provides a safe, convenient and permanent solution for the removal of unwanted hair. It treats a much larger area of skin per light pulse than laser hair treatment, which means treatment can be faster and cheaper. You can now experience a reduction in hair growth without the side-effects of traditional treatments such as shaving, plucking, waxing, hormonal treatment or chemical and electrosurgical depilation.
How does it feel? Is it painful? How safe is it?
IPL is a non-invasive treatment. Each pulse of light feels like a slight sting or pinch, similar to the snap of a rubber band. No local anaesthetic is required and most people find the treatment comfortable due to the hand piece’s sophisticated cooling system.
Major benefits of Laser and Light Hair Removal?
They do not cause the irritation that other hair removal methods may cause.
Larger areas may be treated at one time than with electrolysis, waxing or tweezing.
They combine the speed of shaving with the lasting results promised by electrolysis.
They are effective on almost any area of the body where smoother, younger, hair-free skin is desired.
