IPL - Your questions answered

If you remember back to high school science, you probably remember a laser beam as being "red" or "green". This is because a laser emits light of a single and fixed wavelength.

IPL treatment is different because it emits a wide spectrum of multiple wavelengths of light energy. This allows it to effectively target all skin and hair types without the need for multiple machines or filters. IPL also has a large effective treatment head, meaning it can treat a larger area, more quickly and with less discomfort.

In comparison, different types of lasers are required to treat each of the following - hair follicles, capillaries blood vessels and skin pigmentation.

Waxing - painful, messy and needs to be repeated. And those in-growns - OUCH! Good for the salon, bad for your hip pocket

Shaving - do you like a 5 o'clock shadow on your legs? You will get stronger and denser hair re-growth with shaving.

Depilation creams - messy, repetitive, slow and smelly.

IPL is the most effective treatment of permanent hair reduction on the market today!

Side effects are rare but you may experience some redness of the skin or even some slight swelling which can last around a day.

In some cases you may experience "scabbing" which will only last a short period of time. This is normal and may occur more frequently when stronger settings are needed.

There should be little discomfort during treatment. There is the typical "rubber-band" flicking or zapping sensation.

You should take the following steps :-

  • Stay out of the sun for a month before treatment commences and use 30+SPF sun protection when out in the sun.
  • Avoid "fake tan" and sun-beds for at least a month.
  • Avoid waxing, plucking hair or bleaching for at least a month. Shaving is recommended as prepares the hair for better treatment.

You should take the following steps :-

  • If required, apply gel or ice packs to the treated area for 15 minutes every 4 hours until any mild sun-burn symptoms subside.
  • Avoid exfoliates or scrubbing the treated area.
  • Avoid sun exposure to the treated area and use 30+SPF sun protection when out in the sun.
