Laser/IPL Hair Removal

Laser/IPL hair removal offers a long term solution to permanently reduce unwanted hair for men and women. A course of 6 to 8 Laser/IPL treatments is recommended every 4 - 8 weeks, to follow the hair growth cycles. Treatments will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from painful in-growing hairs.

Our machine has an IPL and Nd:Yag laser allowing us to treat all different skin tones, however we cannot treat grey or white hair.

During the treatment a cooling gel is applied to your skin and the Laser/IPL system is pulsed over the area to be treated. With each pulse the hair will absorb the Laser/IPL light the light to create a heat reaction in the base of the follicle preventing hair re-growth over time with multiple treatments. During each treatment all hairs are treated.


Before Treatment

Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, hair removal creams and electrolysis for 3-4 weeks before your first treatment and throughout the treatment course. During this time you can shave or cut the hairs.

After Treatment

Your skin may feel warm and little sensitive, which is normal and can last for around 30 minutes to 2-3 days.

The hairs will remain in the follicle for 1-3 weeks after the treatment, and then your body will remove the hairs by pushing them out of the follicle. As you can only see the skins surface this will look like the hairs are continuing to grow, however the hairs are not attached to the follicle and will fall away from the skin. Leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft with very little hair growth, as the hairs start to regenerate this is when you will need your next treatment.
