PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL

How it Works

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) works by directing concentrated light into the hair follicle inhibiting the hair’s ability to grow without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface.  By using a wide beam we are able to remove multiple hair follicles at the same time.

Our experienced Therapists will take your skin and hair type into account before creating a personalised treatment plan.

Benefits

IPL technology is safe enough to be used on any part of the body and target different skin & hair types whilst ensuring maximum results. Our machines feature a unique dynamic cooling device that helps to calm, soothe and protect the skin.

 

IPL hair removal benefits include: 

  • Up to 99% permanent hair reduction

  • Silky smooth and hair free skin

  • Reduce ingrown hairs & skin irritation

  • Safe and effective technology 

  • Convenient and cost-effective

  • With every treatment, hair grows back thinner and lighter

 

For your initial course of hair removal treatment, we recommend approximately 6-8 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Preparation

Shave the treatment area the night before your appointment.

Do not wax or tweeze the area in the 4 weeks leading up to your appointment as pigment is required in the hair follicle for the treatment to be effective. 

Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight for 4 weeks prior to your treatment and always protect the skin with sunscreen of SPF 30+ (such as 'SHADE'). 

 

After Care

There may be some mild heat and redness in areas that have been treated. Soothe any redness and sensitivity with a cool pack and quality aftersun product (https://www.canstarblue.com.au/health-beauty/after-sun).

 

For 24 hours post-treatment, avoid shaving, waxing or plucking hair, exfoliation, excessive sweating, swimming or saunas, very hot showers and tight restrictive clothing.

 

Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight for 2 weeks after your treatment and always use an SPF 30+ (such as 'SHADE') to protect the skin and maintain results.

“Stubble” may appear between 1-4 weeks.  This is not hair re-growth but the treated hairs being purged from the follicle.

Allow this hair to fall out of the skin on it’s own.  Gentle exfoliation may help this process.

Not suitable for those with:

  • Recent sunburn

  • Unprotected sun exposure or solarium use 4 weeks prior to treatment

  • Pregnancy

  • History of seizures

  • Severe dermatitis or eczema (within the treatment area)

  • Active infections

  • Roaccutane use in the last 6 months

  • Herpes 1 or 2 (within the treatment area)

  • Very dark skin

  • Removing hair by the root e.g. waxing or tweezing 4 weeks prior to treatment

  • Photo sensitising medications are best avoided
