IPL Hair Removal is a popular & effective method of removing unwanted hair from the body. It works by focusing a broad spectrum of light directly over the hair follicle, the light is then absorbed by the pigment causing the hair shaft to heat, damaging & destroying the hair-producing papilla (root). This results in permanent hair growth reduction & removal. IPL is safe to treat unwanted hair on all skin types & hair colours (except for white hairs).
A series of IPL treatments for hair removal is necessary to ensure that all follicles are damaged & removed. Typically an area will require 6-8 treatments, although this can vary depending on the area. Some future touch-up sessions may be required. You will see a reduction of approximately 20% hair growth after each session.
The Dermalase IPL has been clinically proven to be safe and has been rigorously tested to safely and effectively treat the following conditions:
Folliculitis (ingrown hairs)
Avoid any excessive sun exposure for 4-8 weeks prior to treatment.
