IPL Hair Removal


What is IPL?

IPL (Intensed Pulsed Light) is an alternative to conventional hair removal techniques such as waxing, shaving or threading. IPL uses light to remove unwanted hair by disabling hair in the follicle to give a permanent reduction in hair growth.

Am I suitable for IPL?

Dipti will carry out an in-depth consultation and patch test prior to your actual treatment. She will advise you on the best results you can expect to achieve. SkinBase IPL is a medical grade, EU produced machine and is proven to work on almost all skin types, except very dark skin types. Our IPL system has both a large and small spot size applicator, allowing us to treat large areas more efficiently but also being able to modify the size to treat smaller areas. If you have any medical conditions or are currently pregnant or taking medication, please let us know at the time of booking the consultation so we can check your suitability.

How many treatments will I need?

Hair growth happens in 3 different phases and permanent reduction is achieved during one particular phase. This means typically a course of 8-10 sessions will be needed to start with. Each client will experience varying results, however we expect a reduction of between 70-95% in most cases. Some clients may need more treatments in the course before we achieve the desired results and all clients will need top up treatments at regular intervals.

What areas can I have treated?

You can have most face and body areas treated with the SkinBase IPL.

How does it feel?

Most people liken the feeling to being flicked by an elastic band. The SkinBase system uses a special cooling handset applied to the skin prior to treatment and immediately after, providing a chemical-free anaesthetic effect on the skin to minimise any sensation.

I am happy with the above information, what is my next step?

When you attend your patch test:

If you are able to come with visible hair growth in the area of at least 1mm that would be preferable BUT NOT ESSENTIAL. Please do not expose the area to UV or self-tan for at least 4 weeks prior to the patch test. Avoid intense exfoliation, microdermabrasion or peels on the treated area at least for 1 week before. Avoid swimming in strong chlorinated water immediately before and after the patch test.
