Laser Hair Removal

Never Again? Imagine not having to shave, tweeze wax or go through electrolysis again.

Just smooth, lovely hair-free skin. Unwanted hair anywhere on the body can now be removed quickly and permanently at our clinic. With the latest and the most advanced technology in our clinic, we are recognised as the best clinic for removing unwanted hair, without harming the skin but at the same time destroying the underlying follicle permanently.

How does IPL remove hair?

1) Before Treatment:

Parameters are set to ensure effective hair removal and skin safety.

2) During Treatment:

The pigment in the hair shaft absorbs the light. The resulting heat damages each follicle.

3) After Treatment:

Damaged hairs are eliminated with excellent long-term results.

Highly controlled flashes of light are selectively absorbed by hair-filled follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages or destroys the re-growth potential of the strand. All without damaging the surrounding tissue!

What happens during a treatment?

It begins by trimming away the hair above the skin. You may be asked to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes from the bright light. Next, a cold gel (similar to ultrasound gel) may be spread over the treatment area. The IPL hand-piece is then applied to your skin, and pulses of light begin disabling your unwanted hair. When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area falls out over the next week or two.

What does the treatment feel like?

Each pulse is like a slight sting or pinch, similar to the snap of a rubber band. No local anaesthesia is required, and most people tolerate the treatment well.

Can all hair be treated?

IPL’s unique design offers you customised treatment according to your hair colour, texture and body location. Any hair with at least some pigment (black, brown, red and even blond) can be treated effectively.

IPL is the first photoepilation procedure proven to effectively treat unwanted hair on all skin types, including dark-skinned individuals such as Black, Hispanic, and Asian.

Are there any possible side effects?

Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours. On rare occasions, some blistering or bruising may occur but typically resolves quickly. The skin can also become darker or lighter following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimise the risk of complications.

Following the treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately.

What kind of results should I expect?

IPL technology has been proven to create a permanent reduction in the number of re-growing hairs following each treatment in most skin types. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to your specific kind of hair and skin. A customised treatment programme will be designed for you along with an estimate of how many treatments you may need to meet your expectations.

Imagine not having to shave, wax or go through electrolysis again…

Is it right for you?

IPL is the first photoepilation technology proven to treat unwanted hair on any skin type safely – from very white to very black. To ensure the best outcome, you may be asked about your medical history and skin type to estimate the results you should expect from your customised treatment program.
