IPL/Laser Hair Removal FAQs
How does IPL/Laser hair removal work?
IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments work by targeting the hair follicle to then destroy the bulb at the base of the follicle, impairing future hair growth. Laser treatments work by cutting off the blood supply to the hair follicle which subsequently removes any nutrients being delivered to the follicle, impairing hair growth.
How many treatments are required?
A series of 6-12 treatments is usually recommended for optimal results. As the hair follicles are always in a different growth phase, each treatment session is only targeting approximately 10-15% of hair in the active growth stage.
What areas can be treated?
IPL & laser can be used to treat unwanted hair anywhere on the body, as long as the hairs are dark in colour. Unfortunately, the treatment is not effective on hairs which are white, grey, red or blonde in colour.
Are there any pre/post care instructions that need to be followed?
- Avoid getting sunburnt
- Avoid fake tan
- Ensure the treatment area is clean shaven, unless otherwise requested by your Skin Therapist prior to treatment.
- Avoid excessive heat, sun exposure and exercise for 24 hours post treatment.
- Apply the provided Soothing Gel to the treated area for up to 5 days post treatment to aid in removing excess heat from the skin, and to reduce the risk of folliculitis (infection within the hair follicle).
