Removal of excessive and unwanted hair is a lot easier and less hassle than it used to be. Using IPL or Laser platforms unwanted hair can be easily removed with long lasting results.
Semi-Permanent hair removal can be performed in our Glasgow or Bothwell clinics by one of our expert aesthetic therapists.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a medical application that uses the properties of high energy light and their effect on tissues to produce a desired outcome. IPL uses light of a range of wavelengths. Laser is almost the same but but uses light of only one wavelength.
How does it work?
The energy is transmitted across the skin and is absorbed by the pigments in the hair shaft and transmitted down to the follicle. The energy is transformed from light into heat which travels down
Is it Safe?
IPL was originally developed to treat vascular lesions and has been approved by the FDA as a treatment since 2005. Since then it has developed to treat a large number of conditions including hair removal. IPL is a medical treatment and does have a few risks that your practitioner will discuss with you at your consultation.
Does it Hurt?
The treatment requires a number of applications or “pulses” to be applied to the area. Most people describe the sensation of each pulse as a “flick” or “pinch”
How long do the results last?
The treatment is referred to as semi-permanent hair removal because even though we can remove your hair follicles your body will continue to produce more. For this reason, after an initial course of treatment you may want a six or twelve monthly “top up” treatment.
How many treatments are required?
For most hair removal treatments a course of 6 is recommended. Your practitioner will assess you at the initial consultation and advice you how many treatments may be required.
Is there any downtime?
No. You can continue your normal activities immediately after treatment. It is recommended to use an SpF after treatment on sun exposed areas.
How much does the treatment cost?
The cost of treatment varies depending on area treated and the number of session required. Please get in touch if you would like a quote for hair removal on 01412210229
