Laser and IPL Hair Removal- Achieve Long Lasting Results
The laser and IPL hair removal market has been flooded with inferior machines that don’t offer the results they promise. We have the leading technology in hair removal treatments. Both our IPL system and Nd:YAG laser are fantastic for hair removal. We can treat all skin types safely and effectively.
Laser and IPL hair removal are some of the most popular cosmetic services. A course of treatments can offer over an 80% reduction in hair growth. Our machines offer the latest advancements in technology, and are fast and comfortable.
IPL and laser are not the same, but they operate in a similar way when performing hair removal treatments. The energy of the device is converted to heat which is absorbed into the hair bulb. That heat is enough to cause local destruction to the stem cells, reducing further hair growth. The outer skin is protected by cooling mechanisms so that the bulk of the heat is concentrated in the hair bulb.
Our IPL can treat fair skins right through to moderately dark skins. We can treat all body areas, and a large treatment head means that the treatments are quick.
Our laser is safe for all skin types, even the most dark. Frac3 technology and high peak power means the hairs are targeted to significantly reduce growth. Our specialized S11 handpiece is a scanner that allows us to treat large areas like the back, chest or legs very quickly with great precision.
Some points to consider if you are interested in permanent hair reduction treatments:
- Your hair must have some colour in it to be treated. Laser and IPL hair removal does not work well on blonde, white, grey or red hair. It works best on brown and black hair. This is because the laser or IPL needs to be able to ‘see’ the hair to absorb into it. The best candidates are those with fairer skin and darker hair. However, our Nd:YAG laser safely and effectively treats dark skins with dark hair.
- You always need to undergo a course of treatments spaced at designated intervals (anywhere from 4-10 weeks apart). This is because laser and IPL are only effective when your hairs are in the correct phase of growth. The trillions of hairs on our face and body follow a cycle of growth. When the hairs are in ANAGEN phase (growing phase, connected to a blood supply), the treatment can be successful. Only a percentage of our hairs are in this phase at any one time, therefore you return for a course of treatments to target new hairs in ANAGEN phase.
- You must stay out of the sun and not use tanning products. While you are having hair removal treatments you must keep the treatment area out of the sun for 4 weeks before and after treatment. Tanning products must be completely removed before your session also. This is because the extra colour (tan) in your skin may compete for the laser or IPL’s energy and therefore heat the skin rather than heat the hair. This can lead to pigment changes like darkening (hyperpigmentation) or lightening (hypopigmentation) of the skin.
- Not all machines are equal. The market has been flooded with cheaper machines that do not offer enough peak power to effectively heat the hairs to reduce their growth. Before considering hair reduction treatments, ask about the quality of the machine. Our market leading European IPL and laser both have plenty of evidence to prove they are effective in the treatment of hair reduction.
