As you may have heard IPL Hair Removal will be coming to Pamper Me at the end of February. Unwanted hair can be irritating, embarrassing and time consuming to remove.
Imagine a life with no razors, ingrown hairs or wax appointments?
We have had lots of interest in our new treatment and lots of questions. I have put together this blog to explain more about IPL, what to expect during your upcoming treatment and why we have chose Skinbase IPL over other brands and permanent hair removal treatments on the market.
What is IPL?
SkinBase™ IPL (INTENSED PULSED LIGHT) is a light based therapy used for hair reduction. It can also be used for medical therapies such as vascular lesions, acne and photo rejuvenation.
Results are achieved using a high powered flash handset to deliver intense pulses of light to the treatment area.
How does IPL work?
SkinBase™ IPL emits beams of visible pulsed light onto the skin. This light is absorbed by melanin in the hair and turns into heat energy. Providing there is sufficient melanin in the hair this heat disables the hair follicle so it can no longer produce a hair.
How much does it cost?
The price will depend on the area being treated, the treatment required and the amount of treatments needed. We do have courses available that will reduce the cost compared to ‘pay you go’ treatments.
Why is SKINBASE IPL different to other machines ?
Our IPL system has an industry leading spot size, so treatments take less time than with other machines. This is the area on the handset that delivers the pulse, this varies from machine to machine. SkinBase™ has one of the largest spot sizes at 35mm x 45mm and this enables you to cover larger areas quickly. The smaller the spot size, the more flashes required and treatment times will be increased as it will take longer to cover large areas.
The machine also incorporates a “cryo-handset” used to cool the area before treatment. The cryo-handset gives a chemical free local anaesthetic effect. As a result you no longer need cool packs or gel for treatments, saving you even more time!
Which areas can be treated?
Unwanted hair can be removed from most parts of the body including legs, upper lip & chin, bikini line, underarm, back. If we can wax it we can IPL it!
Does IPL hurt?
A slight warm tingling sensation best describes the feeling experienced during a SkinBase™ IPL treatment. This is minimised further by a specially developed cryo-handset. The SkinBase™ IPL is infinitely more comfortable than most conventional methods like waxing, laser and electrolysis and many other IPL or laser systems.
Why is IPL better than waxing?
IPL is a permanent solution to hair removal.
On average, we tell almost everyone that 6-10 treatments are needed at 6-10 week intervals to effectively remove most all the hair.
How quickly will I see results?
You will see noticeable results after your first treatment. Due to hair growing in different stages at different times a course of treatments will be needed to see a permanent all over reduction.
How do I start the process?
If you decide that you want to find out more the next step is to come in for a consultation with a fully trained therapist. We will then carry out a thorough and comprehensive consultation before treatment to check you’re suitably and discuss what we hope to achieve.
A patch test will then be performed to check for any adverse reactions and establish the correct energy settings prior to commencing your course of treatment.
