What is IPL Laser Hair Removal?
IPL laser hair removal is a safe, non-invasive treatment that permanently reduces the number of regrowing hairs.
Light pulses are used to damage hair follicles, and impair their ability to grow hair. Damaged hair follicles are eliminated, with excellent long-term results.
How does it work?
Highly controlled pulses of light are emitted with the IPL handpiece and the absorbed light heats the hair, which damages the re-growth potential of the follicle – all without damaging the surrounding tissue.
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.
Which hair and skin types can receive IPL Laser hair removal?
IPL hair removal is most effective on dark hair but we have seen great results when treating dark to light brown hair. It comes down to whether or not the bulb or the root of the hair has enough pigment for the Intense Pulsed Light to work.
IPL hair removal is safe for most skin types. However fair skins with dark hair have the best results.
How many treatments do you need?
Because hair grows in cycles and is easily influenced by hormonal changes, 6 – 12 treatments are normally recommended. Every client and every hair is different so we recommend scheduling an appointment for a free consultation so we can determine if IPL is right for you.
