IPL Hair Removal
Visage offers Intense Pulsed Light or “IPL” hair removal. This modern technique is less painful, more precise and more effective for all skin types and body areas than conventional forms of hair removal.
Our professional clinical technicians together with the state of the art technology offered by our Palomar lasers offer a faster, more comfortable and more effective treatment.
Is IPL Hair Removal Permanent?
With a sufficient number of treatments it is possible for true “permanent hair removal” to be achieved. Age, ethnicity, weight, metabolism, medication and hormones will all affect the number of treatments required to achieve this effect.
What is the difference between IPL and Laser Hair Removal?
Because IPL uses short bursts of light, it generates less heat in the skin than conventional laser treatments. This can mean reduced redness and therefore less downtime post treatment.
How Should I Prepare for my IPL Appointment?
- You should refrain from bleaching, tweezing or waxing the area to be treated for a minimum of four weeks prior to the first treatment. Shaving and trimming can be carried out during this time.
- Avoid tanning, including self-tanning creams, for 2 weeks prior to each treatment. A sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater should be used on any area of sun exposed skin which you plan to treat.
- Finally, shave the area to be treated within 24 hours prior to your appointment.
