Summer is nearly here – and with the elusive warmer weather approaching (I live in hope!!) it’s almost time to roll out the barbecue and dig out our barely worn summer wardrobes. Whether you are heading away this summer, or enjoying a much needed staycation, we all want to be able to wear our summer clothes without the hassle of unwanted body hair!
If you’re tired of shaving and the thought of waxing fills you with fear then worry not, we have the answer to your hair removal needs!
IPL Hair removal is a safe and effective means of permanently removing unwanted hair. It can be used to treat hair on both the face and body. So how does it work? IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) emits a broad spectrum of light energy which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The light energy quickly turns to heat which destroys the growing cells which form the hair follicle. Hairs must be treated whilst in their growing phase; approximately 20-40% of hair will be in this phase at any given time which is why it generally takes 6 treatments on average to treat all hairs in the ‘growing’ cycle. With treatment time taking as little as 10 minutes every 6 weeks, you can say goodbye to time consuming hair removal! There is no downtime associated with this treatment so immediately afterwards you can carry on with your day to day life without having to worry about unwanted hair!
Although plucking and waxing is not recommended between treatments, you can shave or trim hair from the area so there is no need to worry about regrowth. As you progress with treatments, you will notice that the hair growth becomes finer and a lot more sparse.
At Skin Medi Spa our technicians are highly trained in all aspects of IPL and laser hair removal, with over 10 years experience in treating clients. Our clinic is regulated by the RQIA, so you can be assured that only the highest standards are met. We use a medical grade IPL machine to deliver optimum results, and following a detailed consultation on your first visit we carry out a patch test prior to your first treatment to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
