A lot of us spend a great deal of time and money trying to eliminate our body hair whether we choose to wax, shave or pluck, however there is a more permanent solution such as laser hair removal.
Laser/IPL hair removal is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the UK. It beams highly concentrated light into the hair follicles where pigments absorb the light that destroys the hair.
IPL (Intense pulsed light) is useful for removing unwanted hair from various body parts including delicate areas such as the face, bikini line, underarm, and anywhere else on the body.
The process is pain free. No one enjoys the feeling of wax strips pulling at your hair and plucking can be just as bad at times. IPL treatment targets the hair follicle with light energy rather than pulling on the hair.
It offers precise removal of hair and doesn’t damage the surrounding skin so there are no sore or tender areas afterwards, allowing you to get on with your daily routine without any discomfort.
Depending on the size of the area that is being treated the process shouldn’t take too long. Areas such as the upper lip can be treated in minutes!
After a few sessions some patients will have permanent results with no re-growth saving them from spending any more time and money on hair removal.
Laser/IPL hair removal is available for all skin types. The myth that all IPL treatments work better on lighter skin tones is no more as we also use specialised applicator heads which are suitable for skin types III – VI.
