Both laser hair removal and IPL hair removal offer a long-term solution to unwanted or excess hair for both men and women and is suitable for most areas of the face and body.

A course of laser or IPL treatments is usually required at 4 – 8 weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle.  Treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from painful in-growing hairs.

How does it work?

Light is absorbed by the melanin (the pigment in the hair follicle).  The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the cells in the hair follicle which are responsible for hair growth, without damaging the surrounding cell.  The laser or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously.  The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of the skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is covered.  For IPL treatments, a thin layer of gel is applied to the skin to help guide the light.

Are there any side effects?

The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and raised but this usually subsides within a few hours.   Adverse reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
