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. AfterIPL it is important to avoid having a 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 is much more comfortable than waxing, electrolysis, and even traditional laser. The cost is less than other technology methods. Although it may be slightly more expensive in the short-term, in the long run it will save you thousands of dollars over other hair removal options, like waxing.
DOES IPL TREATMENT HURT? IS IT SAFE?
Most people describe IPL treatment as painless. However, each person has different sensitivity levels. You get to try the treatment with your FREE test patch, before coming in for your first full session. Our FDA cleared machines provide safe and effective treatment. The greatest risk during treatment occurs by not following the guidelines for safe treatment or failing to disclose medical information. SHR (Super Hair Removal) has been introduced into the clinic. It is less painless than IPL and speeds the process. Ask your therapist about SHR.
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:
A course of 6 to 12 treatments is usually recommended to treat hairs at all stages of the hair growth cycle with 4 to 6 week intervals. This may also vary, depending on hair type and color, and the area being treated. Fair/blonde hairs may not be treatable. Ask your therapist about your options. White hairs cannot be treated successfully. Maintenance sessions will likely be necessary annually.
All individuals are different and therefore it is not possible to predict who will benefit from IPL procedures. 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.
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 pregnant or lactating or have suspicious lesions. Polycystic ovaries may also prevent successful results.
