Traditionally, hair removal has relied on laser treatments but these have been found to be problematic for many clients. Here at Unique Beauty and Laser Clinic, we use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to get rid of unsightly and unwanted hair.
IPL therapy is safer, faster and virtually pain-free compared with other laser treatments. It is much longer-lasting than hair removal, creams, and other techniques. It can be applied to all parts of the body and all types of skin, whether tanned or light-skinned. And best of all it has almost no side-effects!
Where most laser therapies rely on large quantities of heat to destroy hair follicles, IPL uses a specifically-designed, hand-held flashgun to send short but intense bursts of light into the skin. These light-bursts target the hair follicles directly, eliminating them quickly and almost painlessly.
Most clients report a slight warm feeling at the site but the lower intensity of the treatment decreases the amount of heat being absorbed by the body. At the same time, the hair follicles are destroyed, resulting in permanent hair reduction.
IPL is very effective for hair which is lighter in colour, taking out even white hairs.
Unique Beauty and Laser Clinic suggests that clients plan to have eight to twelve treatments, initially at four-week intervals. This enables us to target regrowth at the best times. As hair reduction takes place, sessions can be spaced further apart, to match the slower regrowth pattern.
