ABOUT INTENSE PULSED LIGHT HAIR REMOVAL
Medically proven to be the most successful method of hair removal.

HOW IT WORKS
Highly controlled flashes of light are selectively absorbed by hair and their follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair which destroys the re-growth potential of the follicle. All without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Follicles that are actively producing hair growth at the time of treatment can be completely destroyed but dormant follicles will require further sessions.

On average 6 to 8 treatment sessions will reduce hair growth by 75% to 85%.

 

WHAT ARE TREATMENTS LIKE?
Cooled clear gel is applied to the treatment area and an intense pulse of light is transmitted through a glass prism onto the skin.
A large area is treated with just a single pulse rendering hundreds of hair follicles immediately useless. This makes the treatment extremely fast. Each pulse of light feels like a slight flick with an elastic band. No local anaesthesia is required and most tolerate the treatment very well.
Following the treatment, clients can return to work and resume regular activities.

SIDE EFFECTS
Side effects are rare. Slight reddening or local swelling can be usual but this normally disappears within a few hours.

IT IS ESSENTIAL TO AVOID SUN EXPOSURE AND TANNING INCLUDING FAKE TAN PRIOR TO TREATMENT
