 IPL Hair Reduction
IPL is able to provide superior permanent hair follicle destruction while at the same time treats the skin (see IPL Skin Rejuvenation) with collagen regeneration and reduction of any skin redness.
   
 Consultation and treatment time
You need to allow an approximately 30 minute appointment time.
   
 How does IPL work?
The light is absorbed by pigment (melanin) deep in the hair follicles; it converts to heat, and this loosens the hair and the cells responsible for new hair growth are disabled.
   
 How many IPL treatments are required?
There are 3 phases of hair growth. During the active growth phase there is enough melanin in the hair bulb to permanently destroy the hair follicle. At any one time, approximately only a third of hair follicles are ever in the active growth phase and that is all that the IPL can target at any one time.

This is why multiple treatments are required with a minimum of 4 – 6 treatments necessary for an effective result.

Darker and lighter skin colours will require more treatments as there is less melanin in the hair bulb.
   
 Permanent Hair Removal?
There is no such thing as being able to remove hair permanently.

 How is Photo Rejuvenation performed?

 You may feel a slight sting – like snapping of a small rubber band and a sense of warmth
 Treatments are generally administered in a series of 4 – 6 sessions for excellent long term results
 Each treatment is approximately 15 minutes duration
   
 Why are Multiple Treatments necessary?
 The number of treatments depends on the number of conditions you are having treated and the severity of your individual problem
 By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk
