IPL - INTENSE PULSED LIGHTING


WHAT IS IPL?

Intense Pulsed Light is an alternative to conventional hair removal techniques such as waxing, depilating and shaving. IPL targets and disables the hair at the follicle to give a permanent reduction on hair growth



HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?

Hair growth happens in three different phases and permanent results are achieved during one particular phase. This means typically a course of 6 - 10 treatments will be needed to see the best results. Facial hair is affected by hormonal imbalances and so we advise 10 - 12 treatments may be required.


AM I SUITABLE FOR TREATMENT?

You will need to have a comprehensive consultation and patch test to establish the results you can expect to achieve. SkinBase IPL is proven to work on almost all skin types except very dark skin.


HOW DOES IT FEEL?

Most people liken the feeling to being flicked gently by an elastic band. The SkinBase system uses a special cooling handset applied to the skin prior to treatment and is infinitely more comfortable than other methods like waxing, laser or electrolysis.

What our customers are saying

Booked my course of six and had my first treatment last week, which was quick and pain-free! Can't wait to see the results...
