IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an easy and effective way to remove unwanted hair permanently, treat the appearance of rosacea and remove red veins and age spots.
Using the latest technology, IPL is a fast and safe solution for embarrassing facial and body hair and spells an end to regular and time consuming shaving, waxing and facial hair bleaching.
IPL removes hair by sending out high-energy light pulses that affect both the existing hair and the follicles where the hair grows. The treatment works best at removing the hair when it’s in the active growth phase. Not all the hair being treated will be in this stage at any one time so you will need several treatment sessions spaced out over a period of time to ensure that hair not treated in one session is targeted in the next.
IPL is also an effective way to remove age spots, red veins and improve the appearance of rosacea. Lightwaves target melanin, the brown pigment in age spots. The melanin absorbs the light beam and is then fragmented before being absorbed by the body and naturally disposed of, leaving the skin clear and younger looking.
Unwanted hair on the face, chin, neck, chest, underarms, bikini line, legs and back. Treating rosacea, removing red veins and age spots.
Permanent reduction in hair growth. Following age spot removal sunscreen should be used to prevent further age spots developing, once treated it is unlikely they will return if sun protection is used.
Up to 8 sessions may be needed for hair removal, usually a month to six weeks apart. For age spots and red vein removal usually 3-5 sessions are required, a month to six weeks apart.
