At La Peau Skin Rejuvenation in Brisbane we understand how frustrating unwanted hair is especially during the summer. A DIY razor job at home seems to feel like it only lasts a few days before needing to shave again. If you understand this struggle, we have the perfect solution for you…IPL Hair Removal.
Our IPL treatments are performed with a state-of-the-art Intense Pulsed Light System which works by utilising highly controlled flashes of light that are absorbed by hair-filled follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair which damages or destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle, all without damaging the surrounding tissue!
The process of IPL treatments is quite easy! Treatments begin by trimming away the hair above the skin. Once this has been done, a cold gel is spread over the treatment area the IPL hand-piece is then applied to the skin and pulses of light begin disabling unwanted hair.
IPL hair removal is safe to use for hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms or bikini line. Because everyone’s hair growth is different it is necessary to book for a Complimentary consultation. During this time the technician will discuss with you the number of treatments required. No local anaesthesia is required with IPL, and most people tolerate the treatment well – each pulse light feels like a slight pinch, similar to the snap of a rubber band.
To prepare for your treatments, it is important NOT to shave hair during treatments or after the final treatment. There may be some very fine stain hair that comes through in the few months after the final treatment, you should either pluck these or have an IPL laser touch up. If you shave it stimulates new hair growth which we don’t want!
At La Peau, we are extremely fortunate to use only the Palomar Starlux and Multilux systems which are the most effective and Advanced IPL System; suitable for extremely sensitive skin.
