IPL Hair Removal

Permanent Hair Reduction with IPL

For many men and women hair removal is a never ending, time consuming andlaborious process, but it needn't be such a hardship. Skinbase IPL Systems have created an Intense Pulse Light Therapy based treatment that drastically reduces unwanted hair.

How IPL Hair Removal Works
The treatment works by targeting the melanin (pigment) in the hair with thelight from the system, and upon absorption the light is converted into heat.This intense heat action breaks down the hair follicle, reducing the opportunityfor any re-growth and also changing the entire structure of the follicle itself;overtime altering the density and appearance of the hair until it becomesunnoticeable.

Prior to treatment the area is shaved before a cold hand pieceis applied onto the treated area to maximize absorption. Finally the Skinbase IPL is run over the area and a succession of light pulses isfiltered into the hair follicle. The unique square head technology used in the treatments offer precision and accuracy that ensures that any risk ofside effects is minimal. Any potentially harmful wave lengths are removed viathe Unique Dual Filtering system, meaning that the light used is completely safeand visible.

Number of Hair Removal Treatments
Hair grows in three different cycles and the Skinbase Permanent Hair Reduction can only successfully treat hair during its growth stage. Therefore it is oftennecessary to undergo a course of 3-6 treatments ensuring that you leave at least 6-8 weeks between each session initially, and then only repeat as and when thehair returns.

Preparing for Hair Removal
To ensure that as many hair follicles are targeted as possible it is also important not to undergo any hair removal for at least four weeks before the appointment or during the course of treatment. The same rule applies to any sun treatments, as a tan will raise the pigment level in the skin and have a severe effect on the treatments' success. Skin type is a fundamental effecting factor in this treatment as due to the high level of pigment in the skin, darker skin tones often experience more painduring treatment, though generally it has been compared to the sensation of a rubber band pinging on your skin.
