HAIR REDUCTION FAQs & INFO
IPL before & after care
Before undertaking IPL it is imperative that you shave the selected area (24 hours prior) so that hair growth can be monitored and so that your therapist can adjust the treatment for you. After IPL it is important to avoid hot bath, hot shower, heavy exercise, swimming/spa pools and the sun for 24-48 hours after treatment.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IPL OVER WAXING, SHAVING OR OTHER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS?
IPL, Laser and SHR provide semi permanent hair reduction. Once the reduction goal is achieved, maintenance may be required a couple times a year. This will be cost effective in the future. No ripping of the hair out the follicles, no bleeding, in-grown hairs or downtime.
DOES IPL TREATMENT HURT? IS IT SAFE?
Most people describe the feeling of IPL treatment as the flick of a rubber band. However, each person has different sensitivity levels. A FREE test patch, is recommended, especially for sensitive clients. Our FDA cleared machines provide safe and effective treatments. Failing to disclose medical information can have negative consequences. SHR (Super Hair Removal) has been introduced into the clinic. It is a comfortable hair reduction treatment - 99.9% of clients prefer SHR. Ask your therapist about SHR today.
HOW DOES IPL LONGTERM HAIR REDUCTION WORK?
The newest generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) systems produces a precise beam of light energy, which safely transmits through the skin, selectively targeting pigment in hair in the follicles. When the pigment in the follicle of the hair absorbs this light, it converts to heat, which in turn causes thermal damage to the follicle and destroys the hair. The heat also disables the cells responsible for new hair growth.
LONGTERM HAIR REDUCTION:
Response to the science is not a ‘one size fits all’ scenario. Amount of sessions needed will depend on the individual body response and progress. Influences include; hair density and colour and the area being treated. Red/Fair/blonde/white hairs may not be treated successfully.
All individuals are different and therefore it is not possible to predict who will benefit from IPL procedures and how many sessions will be needed to achieve desired goals. Some individuals will have very noticeable improvements, while others may have little or no improvement. A series of treatments is usually needed to maximise results. Therefore no promises or guarantees can, nor will be made, regarding results. Hair will not fall out and never grow back, hormones grow hair, therefore hair growth may likely always be present, though minimal. IPL reduces the hair growth to a low maintenance phase - thereafter annual maintenance may be needed.
IPL should not be performed on persons who are currently undergoing or have had Accutane treatments in the past 6 months, have had recent sun exposure or sunburn, have a predisposition to keloid formation or excessive scarring, are lactating or have suspicious lesions. Polycystic ovaries may also prevent successful results.
