If ever you were thinking you were fed up of dealing with unwanted hair, whether it be on your face, chest, back, legs, underarms or bikini line, the perfect way to get rid of it is with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light).
What is IPL?
It works best on dark hair. The way it works is that the light produced is attracted to the melanin (colour) in the hair shaft.
Because the hair follicle has a plentiful blood supply the heat produced coagulates the blood rendering the follicle ineffective and unable to sustain new growth. Of course there are many factors affecting the progress made however rest assured that 20-30% of the hair and follicles in any one area will be destroyed and will not be able to function. Together with a further 20% of follicles weakened this is a recipe for amazing results.
Most people need 4-8 treatments. The length of time between treatments differs depending on the area being treated and most treatments run on a 3-6 week cycle.
This time of the year (Winter) is also the best time to do your treatment because the sun can pose an issue if exposure happens to the area being treated plus we tend to cover up more during winter meaning you are less likely to have the need to treat the hair in between IPL sessions. Winter and IPL go together like strawberries and cream. It’s a must.
Courses of treatments are always available therefore making it an amazing investment and future saving when you don’t ever have to do the shaving, depilatory cream or waxing ever again. It is truly brilliant!
