How it works

  • IPL removes hair by sending out high intensity light pulses into the hair follicle, loosening the hair and disabling the cell responsible for new hair growth
  • IPL works best at removing hair when it’s in the active growth phase. But not all hair is in this stage at the same time. So, we spread out our treatments over a minimum of 6 sessions (1/month) to ensure that hair that isn’t treated in one session is affecting in one of the following treatments.
  • Treatments are quick and basically painless

How to prep

  • Do not wax or pluck 1 month prior to treatment as a hair must be present to absorb the treatment light.
  • For your consult appointment it is fine to have some hair growth so that we can assess it
  • You must be fully shaved the day of your treatment appointment
  • You can’t be wearing faux tan 2 weeks prior to treatment

Will I have downtime?

  • You will be able to return to normal activities immediately

Does it work on blonde hair? 

  •  Not very well, this is because there isn’t enough pigment in the blonde hair to absorb the light from the IPL device

Do I need to prep my skin for a peel?

No prop is needed, however it is best to strengthen your skin using a cosmeceutical first.

  • You may experience erythema (redness), mild tingling, warmth, dryness, flaking or peeling
  • Protect your skin from solar damage – we recommend using zinc oxide as it provides potent anti-inflammatory, healing and antimicrobial properties to the skin
  • Keep your skin hydrated during the healing process, we recommend using Vitamin B Serum 24-48hrs following your peel treatment to rebuild the barrier and stimulate ceramide production to reduce water loss
  • A course of 6-8 fortnightly peel treatments is recommended for optimal results

What should I expect post IPL?

  • Cold (not frozen) packs can be applied immediately after treatment to cool the site if required
  • Downtime can be experienced and may be a minor sunburn sensation to a gravel rash effect, swelling, prolonged redness and heat.
  • You should use sunscreen to protect the treated area from exposure to sunlight for at least 1 month following treatment. Tanning after treatment sessions may enhance melanin regeneration which may result in hyper-pigmentation
  • Avoid exposing the treatment site to unsanitary conditions to avoid an infection
  • We advise clients to not participate in rough sports or similar activities for several days following treatment (until the skin returns to its normal condition)
  • Care should be taken to prevent trauma to the treated area for the first 4-5 days following treatment: no hot baths, no active ingredients
  • Treatment areas should be kept clean and moist between treatments. A nonirritating cleanser is recommended.
Follow-up Assessment:
  • Returning 4 weeks after treatment is required for examination of the treatment site and for additional treatments if needed
Treatment Protocol:
  • A minimum of 4 treatments if recommended for optimal results.
