IPL – Laser Hair Removal

IPL laser hair removal has become the industry standard for the removal of unwanted hair for both men and women.  With advances in new technologies IPL has now reached a point where it is a comfortable procedure which has great results in nearly all skin types.

At The Skin Centre we use IPL technology to treat and to remove unwanted hair. We can customise treatments according to your hair colour, texture and where it is located. Any hair with at least some pigment in it can be treated.

The laser beam penetrates your skin and gets absorbed into the hair follicle under the skin surface. The laser energy destroys the follicle with the heat that it generates. Because the laser beam is large in diameter, it affects a large number of hairs simultaneously.

What can I expect during laser hair removal treatment

Most patients experience a stinging, burning sensation when a laser pulse is delivered. To reduce discomfort, a cooling system automatically removes heat from the surface of your skin before, during and after the laser exposure. You will not need a general anaesthetic or pain medication, but a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to sensitive area

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments required to obtain optimal results varies with hair density, hair colour, skin types, the treatment area and your hair growth cycle. The density of your hair and its growth cycle are affected by many things, such as your age, ethnic background, hormones or medications. Laser treatments impair the growth capacity of hair follicles when they are in a growth cycle at the time of treatment. All hair follicles are not active at the same time. Depending upon the growth cycle of the follicles when the treatment is applied, several treatments with a few weeks in between may be required to obtain the desired effect.

What should I expect following the treatment?

Once the treatment is complete, the area exposed to the laser is cleansed and you are free to return to your normal routine. Some patients may experience a slight reddening around the hair follicles following the treatment, which typically disappears within a few minutes. It is always recommended to avoid sun exposure or to use sunscreen following the laser treatment. Hair follicles affected by the laser are lifeless and your body will attempt to cast them off over a period of time. It will seem that the hair continues to grow for one to two weeks after the procedure, but in fact these lifeless hairs will easily fall out.
