    Hair Removal

    Permanently reduce unwanted or excess hair on the face or body.

    Hair removal leaves you feeling confident in your own skin and ready to face the world. The benefit of IPL hair removal is that it can totally stop hair from growing back.

    Both men and women can use IPL hair removal treatment to get rid of unwanted body hair on their bikini line, underarms, back, legs, neck, and face.

    How IPL Hair Removal Works

    hair removal

    Hair Removal & Reduction with IPL

     

    IPL hair removal works by directing intense light energy pulses (like laser) at the hair follicle.

    A concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair, causing the light to penetrate the pigmentation and destroy the follicle. The tissue in the immediate vicinity is unaffected.

    Each IPL pulse lasts a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at once. Small parts, like the upper lip, can be treated in under a minute, while larger areas, like the back or legs, can take up to an hour.

    Is IPL Hair Removal Painful?

    The IPL shot feels like a quick, heated snap on your skin – a bit like an elastic band, and then the treatment moves on. It’s definitely more comfortable than waxing, especially in sensitive regions like the bikini line.

    Will IPL Hair Removal Work For Me?

    IPL Hair removal works best for those with dark hair against fair skin. The lighter the hair, the less effective IPL and laser hair removal is.

    I would definitely recommend freyja medical. As soon as you walk in you are made to feel welcome. Had micro needling treatments by Hattie and Sigita they are so friendly and very professional at what they do. Can’t thank Dr Dean and his team enough! My journey to better skin has begun. Thank you. 😊

    Absolutely superb clinic. Can't recommend James, Keli and their team enough. The team at Freyja truly care about their clients and getting the right results. I've had consultations for both dermatology and aesthetics everyone I've seen has shown true compassion and I've never felt under any pressure to get treatments done and all consultations have been incredibly detailed. Thanks to Freyja not only has my skin improved but my mental health and confidence have improved too. I'm no longer embarrassed about my skin and admitting that I have Roseaca, as thanks to James and Keli I now have the right diagnosis and understand my condition. I'm now following a course of IPL and Hydrafacials with Sigita and Hattie who are both outstanding at what they do, these ladies are so knowledgeable and thorough and always make sure I'm comfortable throughout treatments. The Nantwich clinic is in a beautiful location with plenty of parking, everything in both clinics is ultra modern and clean. If there was an award for best clinic in the universe Freyja would win it hands down.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    Please reach us at [email protected] if you cannot find an answer to your question.
    Why do I get this unwanted hair growing?

    To understand how to get rid of hair, it is important to understand how hair grows. 

    Hair growth is cyclical and begins with the growth cycle known as anagen. Anagen may last for two to seven years (the duration of this cycle determines the maximum hair length). The following anagen is catagen, a transition cycle that lasts for about 10 to 14 days. Telogen (the resting phase) follows catagen and lasts from two to four months. 

    The most common areas for hair reduction in women are the upper lip, chin, cheeks, legs, armpits, and bikini area. Many factors, including genetics and hormones, control hair density in these areas. Some ethnic groups have increased hair density above the lip. Diseases such as polycystic ovary disease and certain medications may also stimulate excessive hair growth. 

    How does IPL get rid of unwanted hair?

    IPL is a safe & effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. 

    The principle underlying IPL hair removal is known as selective thermolysis and it refers to light energy that can target one colour or tissue without affecting another. 

    When applied to hair reduction, IPL targets pigment at the base of the follicle to destroy the matrix stem cells. Most hair removal IPL&laser systems work well when used on light skin and dark hair. This combination allows energy from the laser to pass through the skin and get absorbed by the dark hair. 

    When used on dark skin, the energy gets absorbed by the skin and may cause loss of pigment or scarring without affecting the hairs. 

    Can IPL be used on any skin type?

     IPL is best & safest when used on the lighter sin types (Types 1-3 on the Fitzpatrick scale):

    Type 1: always burns, never tans (pale, freckles).
    Type 2: usually burns, minimal tanning.
    Type 3: sometimes burns mildly, tans uniformly.
    Type 4: burns minimally, always tans well (moderate brown).
    Type 5: very rarely burns, tans very easily (dark brown).
    Type 6: Never burns (deeply pigmented dark brown to darkest brown).

    Hair Removal Aftercare

    Aftercare post-IPL Hair Removal Treatment

    For six weeks before and after treatment, stay out of the sun. Laser hair removal is less effective when exposed to the sun, and problems after treatment are more common.

    Wear a sunblock with a high SPF. Because skin becomes more sensitive to UV rays after treatments, always wear a high-factor sunscreen to avoid hyperpigmentation and sensitivity.

    To avoid clogging the skin and creating breakouts, don’t use heavy make-up or cosmetics for 24 hours following your laser treatment.

    What else can IPL treat?

    IPL is also a very effective treatment for facial redness, thread veins, and skin pigment.
