IPL Hair Removal Q&A

What happens during a hair removal treatment?

It begins by trimming away the hair above the skin, usually by shaving (on your first hair removal treatment we may ask that you shave approx 3 days prior so we may see the area but not have a thick growth of hair to remove).  Then, a cool gel is spread over the treatment area. The IPL handpiece is then applied to the skin and pulses of light are released from the handpiece and begin to disable unwanted hair. When the gel is removed, much of the treated hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in treated area falls out over the next two weeks and for up to 30 days.

After treatments, what precautions should I take?

After treatment, prevent sun exposure by applying sun block – SPF 30 or above.  In the first few days after treatment, don’t scrub or rinse the treated areas with abrasive skin cleaners; don’t use Vitamin A or glycolic acid products on the area for approx 48 hours. The Therapist will also advise you of any additional precautions.

Can IPL damage or burn the skin?

Our IPL system being more advanced than other systems, has a separate cooling system around the treatment head and also has an in built cooling system. This provides effective and safe treatment. Treatment being performed correctly will not burn or damage the skin.

How many treatments will I need?

The amount of treatments required will vary from person and also the treatment area.  For most people an average of eight to ten sessions are required to permanently reduce hair in the bikini or under arm area and we find that clients are amazed at the results one photo rejuvenation treatment can do. Various factors that come into play with the number of treatments such as the colour of your hair and skin, as well as factors such as hormone levels, hair follicle size and hair cycles.

What does the treatment feel like?

While you may feel a slight tingling or pinch (similar to the snap of a rubber hand) from the IPL hand piece, most people tolerate the procedure very well. Some areas of the body are more sensitive than others, you may choose to have a topical anaesthetic applied to increase comfort during the procedure. Patients with thicker and darker hair may feel the tingling sensation more.

How long do the treatments take?

We can treat some areas within 15 minutes. Others, such as the back or legs, may require 30-60 minutes. 

What will I see after the hair removal treatment?

Depending on the individual, hair follicles are damage by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The hairs will fall out after 1 -3 weeks. During this period, the hairs will seem to “grow” as they are pushed out by the new epidermis. After treatment the hairs are loose in the follicle and can sometimes be easily pulled out with tweezers or by simply exfoliating.

Most people experience some mild redness and tenderness in the treated area shortly after treatment. This does not interfere with normal activities and usually subsides within a day. In some cases, the redness may last longer but will still be mild and temporary.  In most cases, the redness of the skin will subside within 24 – 48 hours post treatment.
