IPL stands for Intense Pulsed light and works to reduce hair growth by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle with quick pulses of light. This light energy converts to heat within the follicle. When sufficient heat has built up, the follicle will break down and be unable to produce new hair.
The process is most effective when the hair is in a certain phase of growth. Approximately 30% of hairs are in this phase at any one time, making it necessary to repeat treatments.
The Aesthetics Nurse Clinic offers IPL hair reduction using the Skinbase IPL system and is the most advanced technological system in the aesthetic field.
No IPL or laser system will ever achieve 100% permanent results. Typically a minimum of 6 treatments will be needed at intervals of 6-10 weeks to see long lasting results. Any hair re-growth you do have after that will be softer and finer than before.
IPL is different to Laser and you may want to also consider laser treatments when thinking about hair reduction however there are some benefits of IPL over laser:
- No damage to the skin surface, therefore no recovery time
- Cooling handset means it’s practically painless
- Large areas can be treated quickly and more comfortably
- Broad spectrum light treats the hair from different angles increasing the chances of breaking down the hair follicle
Consultation is complimentary however, a patch test costing £10 is required prior to commencing full treatment.
A discount is applied if first 6 treatments are purchased upfront.
