For those wishing to never have to shave, wax and deal with unwanted hair, IPL is a great solution.
After 4 treatments you will see approximately 70% hair reduction. Most if not all hair, can be permanently removed. In some cases, lighter, fine hair may remain.
We have many satisfied clients who have achieved complete hair reduction. Visit our studio on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.
Coastal Skin Care can treat all areas of unwanted hair.
Lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) devices involve the use of either a laser or a flash of light to target the melanin within the hair follicles, heating and damaging the follicles in an active growth cycle. Only hairs that have colour can be treated. White and grey hairs won’t respond.
The ipl pulse light is best described as a very short elastic band sting or pinching sensation at the very most. Many patients do not find it that intense, also the selected areas make a difference in reactions to the pulse light.
Immediately following your Quantum treatment, the area may appear a bit red and swollen. Three to seven days after treatment you may experience what seems to be regrowth of hair. Actually, most of these hairs are being shed as a result of your treatment and are not regrowing. Between treatments you should not wax or pluck your hair, but it is permissible to shave.
Usually six or more sessions are needed, depending on how much hair is being treated. Each session is one month or more apart as hair has cycles and we need to eventually access the hairs in the active cycle.
IPL is very similar to laser. Both work in the optimum pulse light range to destroy hair roots. In this range every persons hair response is slightly different. This is why testing is essential to obtain the pulse light setting that actively destroys the hair bulb for that particular individual.
