How does IPL remove hair?
Highly controlled flashes of light are selectively absorbed by hair-filled 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.
Can all hair be treated?
IPLs unique design offers you customised treatment according to your hair colour, texture and the location of body hair. Any hair with at least some pigment in it (black, brown, red and even blond) can be treated effectively.
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 very rare occasions, some blistering or bruising may occur but typically resolves quickly. Also, the skin can become darker or lighter following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks. Limiting sun exposure will minimise the risk of complications.
Following treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately.
What kind of results should I expect?
Laser and IPL technology have been proven to create a permanent hair reduction in the number of regrowing hairs following each treatment in most skin types. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to your specific kind of hair and skin. A customized laser hair removal treatment program will be designed for you along with an estimate of how many treatments you may need in order to meet your expectations.
