Our expert practitioners are medically trained and will always carry out a test patch 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. IPL hair removal offers a permanent reduction in hair growth and any hair that does grow back tends to be finer, lighter, and softer.
The Excelight IPL system is also great for:
- Pigmentation, e.g. age spots and sun spots
- Facial redness & tread veins
- Vascular skin lesions
- Wrinkles & to improve skin texture
- Skin tightening
The treatment I had was carried out with care and expertise by Nia who is lovely.
