What is IPL Hair Removal?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an effective way to permanently remove unwanted hair – it’s affordable, long-lasting and perfectly safe. Shaving (which is incredibly skin-damaging and time consuming) will become a thing of the past and over a period of time, it is much more cost and time effective than waxing! We have a dedicated IPL Therapist in each one of our four salons, and while IPL hair removal is extremely safe when administered correctly, the treatment should only ever be performed by a trained professional.
What IPL Hair Removal does:
IPL treatments use specific wavelengths of light that are absorbed into the melanin within your hair follicles, which then heat the follicles, break them down and prevent the hair from growing back.Almost any area of the body can be treated including the under arms, legs, chin, upper lip, back, neck, g-string and Brazilian. As each follicle is at a different stage of growth, we recommend treatments, spaced 6-8 weeks apart depending on the area being treated, to get permanently hair-free!

How it works:
Once the skin is cleaned and primed, a cooling gel is spread over the treatment area. The IPL handpiece is then applied to the skin and pulses of light (shot) are released from the handpiece and begin to disable unwanted hair. If you have never experienced IPL before, we will test the area and monitor, to ensure there are no reactions. You will feel a subtle ‘zap’ underneath the headpiece and varies from skin type to hair thickness.
Our state of the art machine, the Lumenis Quantum has an in-built cooling system which reduces the amount of heat felt in the skin. When the gel is removed, much of the treated hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area falls out over the next two weeks.
It’s important to note, there are many different brands of IPL machines and they are NOT all created equal. There is a huge variation in the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of various machines, which is often reflected in the treatment pricing.
Quantum is a medical grade machine that has many settings, incredible power, and variability of wavelength, colour spectrum, and pulse type to treat different skin conditions and skin types so that it does the job it is designed for quickly and efficiently without the risk of damaging surrounding tissue.
What to expect from IPL Hair Removal Perth:
When the procedure is completed, you experience some heat and/or redness, depending on the treatment intensity. Keeping cool under air-conditioning and using ice-packs will reduce these symptoms. Depending on your Therapists recommendation and the area you are having treated, your next appointment should be scheduled four to six weeks later.
After receiving IPL hair removal in Perth, you can expect silky, smooth and hair-free skin! No longer will you have to worry about shaving, pesky in-grown hairs or an untamed bikini line!
