Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology is a fast, safe non-invasive way to remove unwanted hair. With an ability to treat most areas of the body in both women and men, it differs from laser hair removal in that it can treat a much larger area of skin per light pulse – resulting in a faster and cheaper treatment. *
Efficiently destroying hair follicles through two beams of light, IPL works best at removing hair that is in the active growth phase, but because not all hair is always in the same phase at the same time, a series of treatments are required to ensure the best possible results. *
All of our work is carried out by a highly trained therapist, who would be delighted to answer any questions you may have beforehand.
*Results may vary from person to person. You are advised not to expose the target area to the sun or sun beds for at least four weeks before and after your treatment. Some people feel a slight tingling sensation. You may experience some swelling or redness immediately after the treatment. Sometimes an increase or decrease in pigmentation can occur, and in a very small number of cases the texture of skin may alter. IPL very rarely causes scarring. Treatment times vary depending on the skin tone, hair colour and thickness, and the size of the area. Six to eight sessions are usually required in general, but facial areas may need 10-12. For best results we recommend completing the full treatment.
