HAIR REDUCTION- IPL Treatment

You need Adobe Flash Player to view this content.


IPL and Hair Reduction

IPL treatments implement a wide range of light energy wavelengths that can target and stimulate different skin structures at the same time. With the help of a large spectrum multiple wavelength beam, IPL provides excellent hair follicle destruction, which is permanent in nature. It also treats skin pigmentation, stimulates collagen regeneration and minimises visible blood vessels.

IPL Hair Removal-Nov 12, 2008

IPL hair removal is a new tool that allows permanent hair removal from the body. Just think, no more waxing, plucking or shaving!


What is IPL Hair Removal?

IPL stands for “intense pulsed light”. It is a light therapy and not a traditional laser therapy. It is different to laser in that it uses a spectrum of multiple wavelengths of light energy and thus can target, heat destroy, and stimulate a number of different skin structures at the same time. Therefore, as long as the IPL has the necessary power output, the correct light filters, efficient surface skin cooling, and a wide pulse-width, it is able to permanently destroy hair follicles as well as treating skin pigmentation, regenerating collagen, and treating blood vessel destruction.


 Where can IPL Hair Removal be used?

All areas of the face and body can be treated with IPL. It is fantastic for both men and women. All skin types and hair colours can be treated using IPL but the lighter the skin colour and the darker the hair colour, the more permanent hair follicle destruction is possible. This is because IPL targets the increased concentration of melanin pigment deep down in the base of the hair follicle, more than just the hair shaft. The darker the hair root, the more melanin is there, meaning that more heat-thermal energy is delivered by the IPL, resulting in permanent destruction. A darker skin colour means that there is more melanin in the superficial layers of the skin and this same melanin absorbs a lot of the energy of the IPL, meaning that some of the energy going to heat destroy the hair is blocked by the skin. Lighter hair on darker skin can be treated but more sessions will be required.


 How Many IPL Treatments are required?

There are three phases of hair growth, and it is during the active growing phase that there is enough melanin in the hair bulb to permanently destroy the hair follicle. Therefore, only about a third of the hair follicles are ever in the active growing phase at any one time and thus able to be targeted by IPL. This is why multiple treatments are required. A minimum of four to six treatments are required. Darker skin colour and lighter coloured hair will require more treatments, as there is less melanin in the hair roots and the machine cannot be operated at full capacity. Having said that, long term hair reduction or removal is available for everyone.


Is the Hair Removal Permanent?

Be aware that there is no such thing as completely permanent hair removal with any type of hair removal treatment for most people. However, IPL offers the most advanced and permanent reduction of hair growth of all the treatments currently on the market. It is great at permanently destroying most of the targeted hair follicles.

 Most people will get effective hair reduction with each treatment, with very little regrowth after the course of treatments is done. Some will get complete hair reduction with no regrowth, while others will require a yearly maintenance treatment. Any regrowth of hair will be weak, thin, and lighter in colour, due to the damaged hair follicles.


 Possible Side Effects of IPL Hair Removal

It is normal to experience some redness of the skin and some very mild swelling. This is not burning or blistering and should not cause alarm. In some cases, the redness may last for a few days and there could be some scabbing which subsides over a short time. Most clients will tolerate IPL with minimal discomfort, but on sensitive areas and for people with low pain thresholds, a topical anaesthetic and ice packs can be applied. Most people can immediately return to normal activities.

Hi my name is Tara and treatment with Underarm and Brazilian hair removal. I am really happy with the results and I don’t get any more hair growing.  I found the service to be very professional and ethical and would highly recommend anyone wanting to do IPL Hair removal with Nicole at Mackay Body Rejuvenation Center ago.

I love it and wished I’d done it years ago. - Tara Robertson

My name is Tony and I am a local contractor. Due to the nature of treatments from Nicole at Mackay Body Rejuvenation Center including Bowen therapy and massage I find it helps me get through my weeks work. For the level of service I have received over the years I would give Nicole a score of 10 out of 10. Thank you from Tony

I came to Nicole with really bad lower back problems. I found that the treatments massage and bowen therapy helped me and was happy with the treatments I received. I would recommend using the services to anyone. Darren Gauci

Good morning Nicole. A message saying thank you for the treatment yesterday. I had the best nights sleep last eve I had in a long time. Pat on back and a big gold star. JenniferJust letting you all know I have been going to Nicole for over 2 years now and would publicly like to thank her. She is a very caring, understanding professional. I have received IPL treatments from Nicole and found for the first time in years I can go out without first plucking the hairs out of my chin and upper lip … this treatment has really reduced the amount of hair growth that I have. I have had back massage treatment from Nicole when my back has been really painful… the pain was relieved to nil. Recently I had to drive to Gympie to attend my mother’s funeral- this would not have been possible due to my back pain however thanks to Nicole’s treatment I was able to attend. Thank You Jackie Hampson, Mackay
