Permanent IPL Laser Hair Reduction and Removal

We are delighted to offer you this revolutionary, non-invasive light treatment - and we know you'll love the results! No matter where you have unwanted hair, a course of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser hair removal treatments can bring you the freedom you only previously dreamt about.

The treatment is suitable for both men and women. Women can say goodbye to regular waxing and shaving, and for men a hairy back or chest can be a thing of the past.

How does IPL Laser Hair Removal work?

Suitable for men and women IPL laser hair removal works by selectively damaging actively growing hair follicles and causing their death.

After some repeat sessions, almost all of the hair will be permanently removed. IPL is the next step on from traditional laser and electrolysis, is more comfortable, and you will need fewer treatments.

What does the IPL Laser Hair Removal Treatment feel like?

After cleansing and preparing the skin the IPL hair removal laser is applied. Most people feel a little warmth in the area, while some feel a slight 'nip' sensation. The overall feeling is so light that the IPL laser may be used on almost any part of the body.

Clients experience no side effects. The skin may appear slightly red after treatment but this disappears almost immediately.

Unlike electrolysis IPL laser hair removal is a non invasive treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

Hair grows in cycles. Only hair in its 'growth' phase can be treated. The rest are dormant or 'resting'. IPL treatment destroys only actively growing hairs, so you will need to return for a number of repeat sessions in order to destroy all of the hair. Typically this is between six and ten depending on the body area and the growth rate of the hair.

How fast is the treatment?

Large numbers of hairs can be destroyed at a time. So the upper lip may take only a few minutes to cover, while two full legs may take up to an hour. Time also needs to be spent preparing your skin prior to the light therapy and properly tending to it after the session.

What can I expect to see after a session?

The 'best' results appear after the second session because at this stage we've managed to catch a lot of the hair in it's growth phase. The hair doesn't immediately fall out after each session - it can take between five days and three weeks depending on the hair. A three to four week break between sessions to maximise the new hair growth is recommended.

 

Wrinkle Reduction

IPL (Intensive Pulsed Light) can be used with great effect to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by softening and smoothing the skin and encouraging the production of natural collagen.

What Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are caused by the loss of collagen beneath the skin surface. Collagen is a basic building block of the skin and provides the foundation that supports your skin's structure. Overall, exposure to ultraviolet (referred to as UVA or UVB) radiation from sunlight accounts for about 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging, and most of these effects occur by age 20. Collagen is also damaged by other factors, including: the natural aging process, cigarette smoking, and air pollution.

When this happens, the skin appears thinner and becomes less elastic, resulting in facial lines, wrinkles, texture changes, and visible signs of ageing.

What is IPL Wrinkle Reduction?

Non-Invasive IPL Wrinkle Reduction is a revolutionary treatment that softens fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and hands, and improves the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. There is no recovery period associated with the treatment because the IPL bypasses the epidermis. Instead, the IPL targets the dermal layer beneath the skin's surface where it stimulates collagen production, thickens the dermis and raises depressed areas.

How Does IPL Wrinkle Reduction Work?

During a treatment, IPL energy is applied in a series of gentle pulses. Without damaging the surface, the IPL energy is absorbed by the dermal layer of skin tissue where it triggers a repair mechanism and begins to rebuild and replenish its own natural collagen. Results are achieved from the inside out! Skin will begin to look younger and softer as collagen is replenished beneath the surface.

What Improvement Will I See After Treatment?

Patients have a high degree of satisfaction with their results. Many describe how wrinkles around the eyes and mouth have dramatically decreased. Improvement is achieved with a series of treatments resulting in collagen enhancement. During your consultation, you will be advised as to the number of treatments recommend to achieve your desired results.

What Is The Treatment Like?

IPL Wrinkle Reduction treatments are so quick and easy, you can be treated on your lunch hour. Clients typically experience minimal discomfort and see a blush in the treated area for an hour or so following the treatment. Best of all, there is no downtime. You can apply make-up immediately after the treatment and resume regular activities.

Skin Rejuvenation

Sun damage and the effects of ageing can leave the skin looking tired and prematurely aged, resulting in hyper-pigmentation and unsightly age spots. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments can make a real difference leaving your skin refined, refreshed and revitalised.

Our IPL therapists are also able to treat scars, acne, rosacea and thread veins (known as spider veins) most commonly found on the face and legs.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are small, thin capillaries that lie close to the surface of the skin. They are connected to a larger venous system, though they are not an essential part of it since they do not actually carry blood to the heart. While spider veins and flushed skin don't usually indicate a major medical problem, most people would be happy to be rid of them. Unfortunately, spider veins won't disappear on their own, but advanced treatment is available to easily and safely remove them.

How Do Spider Veins Form?

Spider veins form when excess blood backs up in the blood stream. The excess blood creates pressure. The body releases the pressure by creating new veins on the skin's surface. The primary problem with spider veins is their unsightly appearance, but they can also cause aching, swelling, burning.

People within certain ethic groups are often more prone to spider veins, so heredity certainly plays a role. So can hormone therapy and oral contraceptives. Ageing related to sun damage is also a big contributor. Ultraviolet light exposure is one of the more controllable factors in preventing facial veins, so avoiding the sun and using sunscreen is recommended. Facial veins and flushed skin are also commonly seen with rosacea, a chronic but treatable skin condition.

What Treatments Are Available?

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy: Also known as IPL or Photo Facial, this treatment offers superior results when treating a whole network of tiny facial veins and the associated flushed look of the skin. There is usually no downtime with this procedure, and it typically requires 4 to 6 treatments. People with mild to severe rosacea really appreciate the outcome, noting an 80 to 90% overall reduction in facial redness.

How Long Do Results Last?

Once a vein or vessel has been destroyed, it will not return. However the treatment is not able to stop the development of more veins in the future. Patients who have had laser or IPL could certainly see new facial veins over time, especially those who continue on with unprotected sun exposure. Sunscreen is recommended for everyone, and it can be preventative for people prone to facial veins.
