IPL/Laser Hair Reduction

How does Intense Pulsed Light Work?

Laser and Intense Pulsed Light systems (IPL) release precisely controlled short bursts of light that are absorbed by melanin, the pigment in hair.  This heats the hair and destroys the root to achieve long term hair reduction.  Treatments also offer a long term solution for hormone related hair growth or large areas of unwanted hair.

Treatments can take from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the area treated.

Description / Details

How does the treatment feel?

You will be asked to put on goggles to protect your eyes.  A layer of chilled gel is applied to the area.  The light guide is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, targeting many hair follicles simultaneously.  This process is repeated over the entire area to be treated.

No anaesthesia is required and most patients describe the discomfort as moderate or acceptable.  Sensations vary but most describe it as a very short pin prick making it the preferred choice for hair removal.

What should I expect after the treatment?

Redness and a slight warming sensation are normal after treatment.  The hairs fall out after 1 - 3 weeks as the epidermis renews.  Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore several treatments are needed.  Treatment is conducted every 3 - 8 weeks, depending on the site treated, until a satisfactory result is seen.
