Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL

Not all IPL machines are the same when it comes to hair removal or pigment and redness treatments. We use a top-of-the range EXCELIGHT® which is made in the UK by Brittain’s No.1 IPL and laser manufacturer, Lynton. They also supply machines to the NHS.

You can therefore be assured of safe treatment, delivered by qualified & experienced medical practitioners.

Hair Removal

Our expert practitioners are medically trained and will always carry out a patch test on your skin to ensure you are suitable for the treatment. They will never begin IPL hair removal without this important safety step.

You may experience mild discomfort during the treatment (like being flicked with an elastic band). Immediately after treatment, the area will be pink but there is no downtime.

A course of treatments should be carried out at four to six weekly intervals.  The number of treatments needed will vary between patients, depending on skin colour, hair colour, area and amount of hair you need to reduce.

The hair is usually significantly reduced after 6 treatments.
