IPL HAIR REMOVAL

Tired of shaving? Want to get rid of unwanted or embarrassing hair? 

IPL Hair Removal is a fast, safe, easy treatment using the latest of the new generation technology. Our hair removal treatments are suitable for men and women, all skin tones, all hair colours and can treat all areas of the face and body.

Our advanced technology machines are medical grade, Crystal Freeze registered devices and FDA cleared. We are Core of Knowledge and Safety Certified, as well as fully qualified to undertake these treatments. 

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) uses a broad spectrum of light frequencies to target the follicles of each hair. The IPL heats the root and will, over time, kill the follicle removing the hair, reducing the amount of hair regrowth.

Hair growth cycles vary and at any one stage you will have different amounts of hair in each stage of this growth cycle. Because of this not all hairs will respond in a similar way in each session. Therefore a number of separate sessions, over a period of time would be needed to obtain a good long lasting result.

Frequently asked questions

How does IPL Hair Removal Work?


Lights penetrating deeply into the skin and destroying the unwanted hair follicles, at their roots via medical technology. The lights target, precisesly and exact to the area that is being treated.




Is IPL safe?


Yes, provided you are treated by a fully qualified technician. Always check your technicians qualifications and that they are using a Medical Certified Machine.




How does the treatment work??


We target fibroblast cells, to create very precise heat induced trauma, shortly after these injuries occur, inflammation starts and blood flow to the region, which increases as the skin repairs itself. This process activates and stimulates the fibroblast cells, to lay down new collagen cells. The fibroblast cells leave behind new collagen and elastin cells as they spread inwards towards the trauma. For weeks after the trauma, the fibroblast cells will continue to produce new collagen. Tiny plasma flashes are discharged from the tip of the handpiece. This creates a dot upon contact with the skin. There are no cuts, blood or damage to the skin. These tiny plasma flashes cause "crusts" to form on the skin, giving the distinctive dotting effect. These on average are gone between 5-7 days. The skin is numbed before each treatment. It takes around 30 mins to complete, depending on the area, you are left with slight redness around the eyes and slight swelling occuring within 1-3 days. After 7 days, the marks disappear and the redness will have gone by 3 weeks




Can anyone be treated?


You must be over the age of 18 and provided you meet our criteria and your medical history has been checked.




Does the treatment hurt?


It feels like being flicked with an elastic band, some parts of the body are a little more sensitive than others. Our system has Crystal Freeze technology, to ensure little pain is felt.




What can i expect after the treatment?


Your hair will appear to still be growing, after 1st sessions, it s normal for their to be patches of hair as the treatment works on the stages of hair growth. Each session will bring better results. Once you exfoliate the skin you will see the hair coming away, with no further hair being produced in the targeted follicles. Your skin may be red after the treatment and some of the follicles swollen, this will reduce in a few hours.




Is there anything i need to do before treatment?


You should protect the area you are having treated from sunlight, before and after your treatment. This will all be explained at your consultation in full as you will be required to have a patch test before the treatment. It is your responsibility to fully follow our pre care and aftercare. You will be asked at the consultation about your medical history and any medication you may be taking, as some medications can be a contraindication to this treatment.




Can i Sunbath / Sunbeds & Fake Tan?


You should avoid sunbathing, sunbeds and any kind of spray tanning or fake tan 30 days prior and 30 days after your treatment. This is to ensure you get the best possible treatment and this treatment is melanin sensitive, so we ask you to do this to avoid any hypo or hyper pigmentation. All of our advice MUST be followed exactly.




How many treatments will i need?


Only hair that is actively growing will be affected, hence why you would need roughly 6 sessions to ensure you treat the hair at the different hair cycle stages. These sessions will be 4 weeks apart. This is not a permanent solution for all, as you may need to come back in 6-12 months for top up sessions dependant on your hair type.




How long does the treatment take?


It can take from 10 mins to 1 hour and maybe longer. Each client is different and it depends on the size of the area being treated. More advice will be given at your consultation.
