IPL Permanent Hair Reduction
Intense pulsed light (IPL) is the most advanced form of permanent hair removal. It’s safe, quick and effective, and we’ve invested in one of the best IPL machines on the market that will allow you to throw away your razor for good!
IPL targets different levels of the skin. Some hairs are deeper than others which means varying lengths of light are required to ensure all hair is targeted, leaving you with permanent results. IPL is different to laser hair removal (which treats one level in the skin and is therefore not always as effective).
Is IPL suitable for me?
A consultation is required prior to IPL treatment to ensure you’re a suitable candidate. We perform a test patch (to ensure you know how the treatment feels) which allows you to see the incredible results first hand. Fair to olive skin tones are ideal candidates. The hair also needs to have some colour to be treated, so it’s unsuitable for very dark skins and white or grey hair. If your skin or hair tone is unsuitable for IPL, electrolysis may be a great option for you. Come and chat to one of our skin experts and we’ll guide you in the right direction.
How does IPL work?
The light from the IPL machine is attracted to the hair and hair follicle, using heat to permanently destroy the follicle so it can no longer produce hair.
What’s the process?
We remove (shave) the hair on the surface of the skin prior to treatment. Gel is applied before the IPL head is glided over the skin, treating each section. The hair falls out within three to ten days, then you’re hair-free and fabulous for the following four to six weeks.
What does it feel like?
IPL is a warm sensation that can be slightly uncomfortable but is over very quickly.
How many treatments do I need?
Treatments vary between clients. However, most clients have approximately eight treatments, four to six weeks apart.
A consultation is required for IPL treatment to assess skin suitability. Consultation cost ($55) is redeemable towards treatment. Prices below are an indication and exact price will be given in consultation.
