Hair Removal

IPL Hair removal

spectrum20pic202IPL eliminates hair by employing a method known as selective photothermolysis. This involves disabling hair growth mechanisms by raising the temperature of the hair follicle high enough to damage the follicles germinative cells without damaging the skin and surrounding surface.

The treatment is applied by placing a hand-held treatment unit on your skin. This generates an intense pulse of light into the hair which is absorbed by elements with colour in the hair (chromophores). The chromophores include melanin - brown (in pigmented areas) and haemosiderin - red (in blood vessels). Once the light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, it turns to heat energy, destroying the hair but leaving the surrounding skin healthy and unscathed.

Does IPL Hair Removal hurt?

You may feel a slight pinch such as that of a snap of a rubber band or a pin prick sensation, but no local anaesthesia or pain medication is required. Our technician will evaluate your personal pain threshold and will design treatment parameters to suit you.

Are there any side effects from IPL?

You may experience some short-term effects. This may include slight reddening of the skin which goes away within a few hours. Or on a rare occasion itchyness accompanied by mild swelling a few days post treatment.

Is there any down time or restrictions on activity after IPL?

You can return to work the same day and resume all regular activities. Treated areas must be kept protected from the sun during the course of treatments. We also recommend avoiding waxing during your course of treatments.

How many IPL treatments are required?

Permanent Hair Reduction may take up to 6-8 treatments. This does vary from client to client. At times medical conditions, hair colour, medications, hormone conditions and other factors contribute to extended treatment times. If you have an underlying condition that may effect the treatment course we will design a special package to help reduce the extra cost.
