How does IPL work?
This non-invasive treatment uses high intensity pulses of light to target hair follicles, causing hair to fall out and prevent re-growth.
What's the difference between IPL and laser hair removal?
Although IPL works like a laser, in the way that light is converted to heat to penetrate and damage hair follicles, IPL uses a different kind of light technology, and emits multiple wavelengths.
Is IPL Painful?
This varies from person to person but the pain is completely manageable. It can simply feel like a hot snap on the skin. Any pain experienced will be mild and short lived!
Is IPL Safe?
Yes! IPL hair removal is completely safe with high quality equipment and experienced, qualified therapists. Plus, because the treatment uses only light (no chemicals, radiation etc.) there's no damage to your skin and only the hair follicles are affected. There is no radiation, no UV rays or nasty chemicals involved.
Am I suitable for treatment?
IPL is most effective on paler skin with brown or black hair and can be done on most parts of the face and body. IPL hair removal is unfortunately ineffective on blonde, red, grey or white hair or very dark skin. Our Soprano Titanium Laser Hair Removal is more advanced, however, so if you aren't suitable for IPL, Soprano may be a better option for you.
What do I need to know before treatment?
Shave the intended area of treatment up to 48 hours before treatment. Remove any fake tan and let a natural tan fade. Clearly state to your therapist if you are on any medication, as certain medicines can have contra-indications.
What do I need to know post-treatment?
Wear an SPF 30+ (with zinc) after and during your IPL hair removal treatments. Any skin directly exposed to sunlight after the treatment can be damaged. Plus, no waxing, bleaching, threading, plucking or epilating in between sessions.
