IPL PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION

 

What is IPL – Intense Pulsed Light Treatment?

IPL is a non-invasive light-based technology used to remove unwanted hair and improve many skin conditions.  Such conditions as age spots, sunspots, freckles, superficial capillaries and other unsightly discolouration of the skin can be eliminated using this technology.  IPL is also incredibly effective for those of us who suffer from facial redness and can even stimulate fibroblast causing increased collagen production in your skin for a more natural, lively, healthier looking you!

 

How does IPL work?

A fully trained therapist will apply a specially designed hand piece to your skin and generate an intense pulse of light which will be absorbed by targets in your skin.  The light delivered from the hand piece is delivered at high intensity during a very short period of time.  It is this rapid discharge of light that provides the high energy levels required for each IPL treatment to be effective!

 

Hair Removal Treatments

IPL hair removal treatments are easy, painless and quick solution to unwanted hair and can be successfully used on the body or the face.  Usually a course of 6 – 8 treatments is required to achieve optimal result, but once you've completed your treatment cycle, you can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin with only the occasional maintenance treatment. 

 

SHR: the next generation of hair reduction

SHR stands for Super Hair Reduction and is the latest breakthrough innovation in IPL permanent hair reduction.  When compared to traditional IPL hair reduction treatments, SHR is faster, easier and almost painless.  SHR excels in rapid and painless hair reduction from larger areas.

This is achieved by using an in-motion technique of moving the applicator repeatedly over the treatment area; all ensuring full coverage.  The gradual heating method of the IPL SHR light delivery to the targeted hair follicle also means that treatments are very comfortable.  Simultaneously, the device provides cooling to the skin surface- preventing injury and allowing for highly effective hair reduction.

The rapid treatment times and superior comfort factor both make SHR a leading choice for hair reduction on all areas of the body.  Ask one of our friendly staff for further information.

What to know about your IPL Hair Removal Treatment

 

Pre-Treatment

  • Do not wax, pluck, use depilatory creams or undertake electrolysis for 4 weeks prior to treatment, and in between treatments.
  • Do not use prescription strength exfoliant creams (Retin-A and Alpha Hydroxy) on the area for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Please shave the night before all subsequent
  • Avoid tanning and incidental sun exposure including self-tanning lotions, tanning bed/booths for 4 weeks prior to and in between treatments. A sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater should be used on any area of sun-exposed skin, which you plan to treat.
  • Advise your clinician of any change of medication or supplements

 

Post Treatment

  • Application of chilled Aloe Vera gel or a cold compress every hour for 5 to10 minutes may be soothing to the skin. Continue until symptoms subside.
  • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas. Apply a sun block with SPF 30 or greater daily to sun-exposed treated areas between treatments and for 4-6 weeks after last treatment.
  • Bathe or shower as usual. Treated areas may be temperature sensitive. Avoid use of extremely hot water, strongly scented lotions or soaps, prescription strength exfoliant creams, loofah sponges, and aggressive scrubbing to treated areas during healing

 

Best results are obtained on clients who have follow up treatment immediately after hair starts to grow. Your clinician will advise you when you should schedule your next appointment. It is important to adhere to this regime.

 

Until redness has completely resolved, avoid all of the following:

  • No active cosmetics on treated areas (including AHA/BHA’s, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and physical exfoliants)
  • No swimming, especially in pools with chemical/chlorine
  • No hot tubs and Jacuzzis
  • No exercise or activities that cause excessive perspiration
  • Avoid sun exposure to treated areas
  • Do not pick, scratch or remove scabs as this will cause unwanted side effects
