How it works

Lasers and light sources use the principle of selective photo thermolysis to eliminate hair and its potential re growth without damaging the surrounding skin. During a treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for re growth. The attributes of the light (wavelength, pulse duration and power) are chosen to ensure damage to these cells and not the rest of the skin.

Photo depilation, or 'hair removal using light,' has gained dramatic popularity over the past several years. Excellent clinical results, as well as low-risk success for many practices have contributed greatly to the success of this amazing procedure.

While many methods can eliminate unwanted hair, very few can eliminate hair re growth while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. And photo epilation is quickly becoming the most popular procedure for hair removal.

Does the treatment hurt?

No local anaesthesia is required and most people say it doesn't’t hurt more than waxing does. Each pulse of light feels like a very slight sting similar to the slap of an elastic band.

It is suitable even if you have sensitive skin.

A cold gel is applied to the area to be treated. Once this has been done the laser head is placed on the area to be treated. Depending on the area the treatment lasts between 1 minute for a small facial area or 1 hour for a full leg treatment. The hairs will fall out naturally after about 3 weeks, A full course of treatment is required for a successful result. The treatments are cumulative and much more visible after a couple of treatments. It is recommended that you shave prior to each treatment. Depilation cream or shaving in between treatments can be used. The skin may be slightly reddened after the treatment and it is not possible to sunbathe before or after the IPL treatment.

Areas that can be treated:

  • face
  • arms
  • chest
  • bikini
  • legs
