IPL Laser Hair Reduction

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is safest and most advanced technology for permanent Hair reduction. Its unique filtering system is safer and gentler on the skin, and helps to cover the larger areas which puts standard of treatment as best in the class.

How does the permanent hair reduction treatment work ?

The visible light from the flashlamp is guided via a glass prism to the hairy area. Hair contains pigment (melanin) that absorbs the light and converts it into heat. This heat is led through the hair into the hair follicle which is then destroyed and rendered unable to produce a new hair.

To ensure optimal light transmission to the hair a thin layer of gel (similar to that used in ultrasound) is applied to the skin. The hand held applicator is then slid over the entire treatment area by moving it exactly one width after each flash of light.

Can all hairs be treated ?

As the treatment relies on absorption of light in the hair pigment (melanin) the most efficient treatment is seen with dark hair. The lighter the skin the more effective the separation is between hair and skin colour making treatment easier.

How long does an permanent hair reduction treatment take ?

The glass prism of the applicator which guides the light to the skin is 1 cm by 5 cm so a large number of hairs are targeted in one flash of light. A facial treatment takes around 20 minutes where as on the back or both legs take 60 to 120 minutes.

Does it hurt ?

No anaesthetics are required and most people describe the sensation as similar to that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin. Skin may feel warm and tingle slightly after treatment. Most clients tolerate the procedure well.

Do I need to take special precautions before and after treatment ?

The light is a completely safe, visible light so no special precautions are needed. However, it is important not to remove hair by epilation or waxing 4 weeks before treatment to ensure that as many hair follicles as possible contain a hair and thus can be destroyed by the light. Since tanning takes place by accumulation of pigment (melanin) in the skin it is also important to avoid tanning before and during the treatment sessions. Otherwise the skin will also absorb the heat which makes treatment less effective. Generally no post-treatment is necessary but people with very sensitive skin may benefit from using a soothing cream for a few days. It is also recommended to limit sun exposure and to use sun screen (SPF 20 ) for a few weeks following treatment.

How many permanent hair reduction treatments do I need ?

Hair growth is cyclical as hair follicles go through resting and growing phases. Only follicles in the growth phase contain hair and are destroyed by the heat. Resting hair follicles need to enter the growth phase before they can be destroyed by the treatment. It is, therefore, necessary to repeat the treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been through the growth phase.

The length and timing of the growth cycles are affected by numerous factors such as body site, hair density, thickness, ethnic origin, hormonal status and age. Usually 3-6 treatments are need and the intervals between treatments are typically 1-3 months.
