What is IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light is an alternative to conventional hair removal techniques such as waxing, depilating and shaving. IPL targets and disables hair at the follicle to give permanent reduction in hair growth.
How many treatments do I need?
Hair growth happens in 3 different phases and permanent results are achieved during one particular phase. This means typically a course of 6-10 treatments will be needed to see the best results. Facial hair is affected by hormonal imbalances and so we advise 10-12 treatments may be required.
Am I suitable for IPL?
We will carry out a comprehensive consultation and patch test and they will advise you of the results you can expect to achieve. Skin base IPL is proven to work on almost all skin types except very dark skin.
How does it feel?
Most people liken it to the feeling of being flicked by an elastic band. The SkinBase system uses a special cooling handset applied to the skin prior to treatment and is infinitely more comfortable than other methods like, waxing, laser or electrolysis.
What ares can be treated?
Unwanted hair can be removed from most parts of the body including legs, upper lip and chin, bikini line, underarms and back etc…
When will I see results?
You will see noticeable results after your first treatment. However hair is in different growth stages at different times and so a course of treatments will be required to see permanent hair reduction.
