Q&AIPL HAIR REMOVAL
Intense Pulse Light hair removal is a fast and affective treatment with the latest technology equipment, in the hands of highly trained and experienced clinicians.
Q: What is IPL hair reduction?
A:This treatment works with intense light which is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and is converted into heat. This heat loosens the hair and disables the cells responsible for new hair growth. This affects the hair in theanagen or growing stage.
Q: Which areas can be treated?
A: All areas of the face and body are treated. Sensitive areas such as bikinis and Brazilians, chest and back hair removal are now quick and rnearly pain free.
Q: How does it work?
A: The treatment head is passed over the shaved treatment area. Permanent hair follicle destruction is only possible if enough heat (thermal) energy can be delivered to the hair bulb and for long time enough (wide pulse width of the light flash). It also requires enough melanin concentrated in the hair bulb to allow it to absorb this heat energy.
Q: Is there any downtime?
A: There is no downtime with this treatment.
Q: When do I see results?
A: You will see the first results within 2 weeks after your first treatment. The hair in the growth stage that is treated at your first appointment will be destroyed, fall of and not grow back again.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A: 4 – 8 treatments are likely.
Q: How long does the treatment take?
A: The equipment that we use is technologically superior and provides a very fast and comfortable result.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Very safe – the latest technology equipment in the hands of an experienced operator is very safe and the outcomes are very good.
A: Nearly all skin types and hair colours can be treated, but the “lighter the skin colour” and the “darker the hair colour” (with more melanin), the more permanent hair follicle destruction is possible.
