IPL Hair Removal
Hair Removal with Intense Pulsed Light
Imagine not having to shave, tweeze, wax or go through electrolysis again. Excess body and facial hair can be an unsightly and embarrassing problem. Shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide temporary fixes that are inconvenient, irritating, messy and over time expensive. Women frequently experience unwanted hair on the face, especially the upper lip, chin, eyebrow area, bikini area, under the arms or on the legs. The problem of ingrowing hairs can be resolved with IPL, destroying the hair and reducing redness.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) from Lumenis, the world leader and pioneer in laser and light-based technology from the USA. IPL offers a safe, gentle, cost effective, non-invasive, long-lasting solution to unwanted 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 hair follicle, all without damaging the surrounding tissue, leaving the skin soft like the hair was never there. The IPL hair removal will be tailored to the individual. Your treatment begins by shaving or 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 will be applied over the treatment area. You may feel a little heat with each pulse of light and it can feel similar to the snap of an elastic band. On average 6 to 8 treatments may be required to provide long-term hair reduction. Following the treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately. Men often wish to rid themselves of hair on their back or chest
