IPL Hair Removal

Are you ready for a hair free you?

Excessive or unsightly facial and body hair can be embarrassing and uncomfortable for both men and women. 

IPL is a non-invasive, gentle long-lasting solution for your unwanted hair. It is a safe and effective way to achieve smooth, hair-free skin. All areas of the face and body (including Brazilian) can be treated comfortably with IPL hair removal.

Can you imagine - no more waxing, plucking or shaving?

What is IPL Hair removal?

IPL is a light based energy that is applied to your skin to target the hair follicle. It creates thermal heat that is absorbed into the hair follicle to destroy it and its feeder vessels.

IPL is great at permanently destroying most of the targeted hair follicles. 
Most people will get hair reduction with each treatment, with very little regrowth after the course of treatments is completed. Some will achieve complete hair reduction with no regrowth, and some may require an annual maintenance treatment.  Any hair regrowth will appear thinner, and lighter in colour, due to the damaged hair follicles.


Qualified and experienced Therapists using the latest FDA approved, medical grade machines perform our IPL hair removal. Only hair with pigment can be treated. Not everyone will be suited to IPL treatments so we offer a free consultation to assess your suitability and also advise a treatment program.

Possible Side Effects:

It is normal to experience some redness and applying an ice pack afterwards can ease tenderness of the skin and occasionally some very mild swelling. Most clients tolerate IPL hair removal with little discomfort. 

Before Treatment:

It is extremely important to avoid sun exposure, tanning beds and fake tans for at least 3-4 weeks before treatment. You must also stop waxing, plucking or epilating at least 3-4 weeks before treatment. Shaving is allowed. Before each treatment you need to shave the area 36-48 hours in advance.



After treatment:

There is no downtime and you can return to normal activities afterwards. Avoid hot water, heat, chlorinated pools and antiperspirants (for underarms) on the day of treatment. You should not pluck or wax the hairs in between IPL treatments. It is also important to avoid the sun for several weeks, and to wear a 30+ sunscreen afterwards.

How many IPL hair removal treatments will I need?

A minimum of 6-8 treatments is usually required. Every person’s hair growth pattern is different and the number of treatments required will vary depending on the colour of your skin and hair. IPL hair removal is most effective during the active stage of the hair growth and so intervals will begin at 4-6 weeks. As hair regrowth becomes lighter and finer, the intervals will become longer as the hair will take longer to regrow. Further details will be discussed at your consultation.
