IPL HAIR REMOVAL
USING INTENSE PULSED LIGHT TO HELP YOU ACHIEVE THE BEST PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION RESULTS IN COMFORT
WHAT IS INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL)?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) makes use of broad-spectrum, visible light to reduce hair permanently. A certain percentage of heat energy from IPL would be absorbed by our hair follicles, effectively destroying them.
However, thicker and deeper hair follicles may not be reached and disabled as effectively due to the nature of IPL being shone over quite a large area. This causes the heat energy in IPL to be spread out and dispersed. Hence the amount of hair growth reduced might not be as significant as compared to Laser Hair Removal for example.
For those who are looking for permanent hair reduction that would last, this treatment is for you.
Through this process, hair growth will be reduced permanently, which definitely helps provide greater convenience in the long run as compared to temporary hair removal methods, such as waxing or shaving.
IPL is also suitable for those who are afraid of the stinging pain or possible ingrown hair caused by waxing or shaving.
Do shave 1 day before your appointment. But do not shave 1 - 2 days after your treatment!
Hair would need to remain with the follicles for a few days after the IPL or Laser hair removal treatment. This helps to reduce any possible opportunistic infections in the damaged follicles. The hair will shed naturally over the following weeks.
We recommend applying moisturiser to keep your skin soft and to minimise itching. It is best to moisturise your skin on a daily basis as for all light-based treatments, the heat energy entering your skin might cause it to become dry.
Exfoliation (if applicable to you), should be done 3 days before the treatment.
