IPL Hair Removal

Permanently remove unwanted hair

Permanently remove unwanted hair

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an effective way to permanently remove unwanted hair. It’s affordable, long-lasting and perfectly safe. Shaving (which is incredibly skin-damaging and time consuming) will become a thing of the past and IPL hair removal will become more time and cost-effective than waxing.

Benefits of IPL Hair Removal

Won’t hurt!

You’ll be pleased to hear that Intense Pulsed Light hair removal is practically pain-free! The treated area may look slightly red and feel a little tender immediately after but this is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. The treated hairs will begin to shed within a week or so and you won’t feel a thing!

Completely safe

IPL is clinically-proven to offer safe and effective long-term hair removal results on the face and body.

Quick and convenient

The time it takes to complete an IPL session will depend on the area of your unwanted hair, however most appointments take around 30 minutes. It’s quick, convenient and it’ll save you time carrying out other hair removal tasks at home.

Reduces hair growth

Intense Pulsed Light removes the hair directly from the root, this means there is much less chance of regrowth. It offers a much more permanent form of hair reduction, compared to razors and creams.

Over time, with continued IPL treatments, you should see permanently reduced hair growth.

Suitable for almost every skin type

The IPL system I use is proven to work on almost every skin type, apart from dark toned skin. There is a need for there to be a strong contrast between the melanin in the skin and the targeted hair follicles. With darker skin tones, there is a danger of the light being absorbed by melanin in the skin, in addition to the hair follicle.

IPL Hair Removal FAQs

How does IPL Hair Removal Work?

Once your skin is cleaned and primed, a cooling gel is spread over the treatment area. The IPL handpiece is then applied to the skin and pulses of light (shot) are released from the handpiece and begin to disable unwanted hair. If you have never experienced IPL before, we will test and monitor the area to ensure there are no reactions. You will feel a subtle ‘zap’ underneath the headpiece and but this varies from skin type to hair thickness.

Our state-of-the-art machine,  has an in-built cooling system which reduces the amount of heat felt in the skin. When the gel is removed, much of the treated hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area falls out over the next two weeks.

How do I prepare for IPL Hair Removal?

You must not pluck, epilate or wax for 6 weeks prior to your IPL treatment to allow the hair to go through a full hair growth cycle. You are able to shave the area during this time. You should shave the area the day before the appointment.

You must not have any fake tan on the skin at the appointment. We recommend not using fake tan for 2 weeks prior to the appointment. If you come to your appointment with fake tan on the treatment area, we are unable to treat you.

The skin should be clean and clear of deodorant and creams prior to the treatment. You should also avoid using creams containing Vitamin A or Retinol prior to your appointment. Laser hair removal Perth has never been so convenient.

What can I expect during a session?

Sessions times will vary depending on the area treated. A small area like upper lip may take 15 minutes but a large area, such as full leg or back, will take much longer.

At the time of treatment, a cooling gel and a hand-held treatment unit are gently applied to your skin. Each pulse of light to the skin can disable hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously. When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it and the remaining hair in the treated area falls out within a week or two.

When will I see results?

Permanent reduction after 4-8 treatments. Clients may require an annual top-up session.
