The IPL system removes hair from all parts of the body including face, legs, arms, underarms, back, chest, tummy and bikini area.
Intense Pulsed Light works by disabling the hair that is principally in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since other hairs will enter this active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary to disable all the hair follicles in a given area. Six weekly intervals between treatments is advised to get best results.
Most areas require a minimum of 6 treatments but you may need up to 10 depending on various factors such as hair thickness, hair colour, the area being treated and your growth cycle. Not all hairs are actively growing at the same time, but go through three distinct phases – growth, regression and resting. With this in mind we have a policy that after you have completed 6 treatments, the cost is then reduced by 50% (half price) for further treatments.
The IPL sensation varies from person to person and also depends on the area being treated.It is described as a mild warm stinging sensation but no local anesthetic
is required as the Perfection III+ has a cooling head which allows safe treatment,
cooling the skin down to minus 5 degrees allowing for minimum discomfort.
Slight redness or swelling may appear following your treatment. After 7 days approx. you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair but after a further few weeks most of these hairs will shed. It is important not to wax or pluck between treatments but it is fine to shave.
