inset_iplhairremovalIPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an innovative, reliable and safe method of removing unwanted hair for both men and women. It stands out as the most effective and least painful method among other hair removal techniques. When compared to laser treatments, IPL is gentler on the skin and more versatile in treating a broader range of skin tones and hair colours. IPL treatment is based on a technology that delivers rapid pulses of high intensity light to the area that is being treated. The light energy is converted to heat which destroys the hair follicle from the base, inhibiting future growth.

We are focused on sourcing the latest technology in order to continually improve the equipment and treatment methods which ultimately leads to an enhanced customer experience which enables us to treat a wider range of skin tones and colours. We have the fastest and most powerful (60 Joule/cm2) equipment in the market, which has been designed to provide light-based hair removal treatments and light-based skin rejuvenation.Our hair removal system delivers outstanding results on all body areas, with safe, effective, long-lasting hair removal which is comfortable to undergo. Our hair removal is by far superior to mainstream hair removal methods.The equipment has a modern Intense Sub-Zero cooling system, which is gentle to the skin and provides light local anaesthesia to making the treatment painless. Unlike laser hair removal systems, our Intense Pulsed Light can treat almost all kinds of skin and hair, with fewer side effects and at a lower cost. Laser treatments, on the contrary, cannot be applied to certain skin types as they are very aggressive on delicate skin.

honey_moisturiserWe would highly recommend that to prepare and protect your skin from the increased photosensitive effect of the treatment you use our special formulated Honey Moisturiser with added SPF15 for protection against the rays of the sun.

We would strongly advise that it should be used 4 days before and 4 days after treatment for the best results and protection.

Rich in vitamins and minerals honey is a natural antiseptic, it is wonderful for dry and sensitive skin so you may wish to use it for your every day moisturiser.

Before your IPL Hair Removal

Do not use wax, use tweezers  or any method that removes hair at the root in the area to be treated at least 14 days before your first session.

Avoid the sun, UVA rays (sunbed) and self tanning products at least 7 days before your session. Use a high sun protection factor if the area to be treated is normally exposed to the sun. 

Inform us if you are taking any medicine before any session.

Do not use any aggressive skincare treatments, such as peelings, at least one month before treatment. Avoid using Vitamin A or Retinoic Acid (anti-wrinkle) cream in the zone to be treated 3 days before. Remember having your skin clean when going to your session, preferably free of cream, lotion, perfume, deodorant and make up.

We recommend that on your session day you avoid sauna and doing vigorous physical exercise as they increase skin temperature. Avoid using tight clothes in the area to be treated on your session day.

Before you commence treatment you need to pop in for your FREE patch test and fill in a short consultation form to establish your suitability, this just takes 15 minutes but is necessary to ensure that there is no adverse reaction to the treatment, you get a good understanding of what’s involved and so the therapist can achieve the correct setting for your needs so you are getting the full benefit from the first pulse.

After 24hrs you can book your first session, on average it takes between 6 – 8 sessions to achieve hair removal from any area and you must leave 4 – 6 weeks between sessions, no more no less for the best results. 

After your IPL Hair Removal/In Between Sessions

You can shave or use hair removal cream but do not use wax or tweezers or any method that removes hair at the root.

Avoid the sun, uva rays (sunbed) and self tanning products for at least 7 days, use a high protection sun factor if the zone to be treated is normally exposed to the sun.

Do not use deodorant, make up, perfume or lotion in the treated area within 8 hours of treatment.
