What is IPL Hair Removal?
IPL is a technology where light is converted into heat energy. Treament are like a very powerful camera flash lamp being held against your skin. The light waves target colour pigments such as melanin in brown spots and frackles; and in broken or diffused blood vessels. The light waves can also target specific protein molecules in acne becteria and in collagen. IPL treats all conditions without disruption to the skin’s surface.
The number of treatments depends on the results you want! E.g. if you want permanent hair reduction, a course of 6 to 12 treatments are usually required to treat hairs at all stages of the hair growth cycle, at 3 to 6 weeks intervals; which varies depending on hair type and colour. A maintenance session may be neccessary from time to time, due to the development 0f new hair growth.
Some treatment have little or no sensation at all, clients may feel a slight sting, similar to the flick of a rubber band against your skin. It is certainly not unbrearable, and we can always reduce the intensity if you feel the need. Immediately after some treatments you may feel a mild heat for a few minutes, or a couple of hours, but after most treatments you will feel next to nothing at all. Treatment take 5 to 60 minutes depending on the area of the body.
