HOW DOES IPL (INTENSE PULSE LIGHT) HAIR REMOVAL WORK?
When used in hair reduction, the light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. It quickly turns to heat which then breaks down the hair follicle, making the hair thinner, lighter, and grow back at a much slower rate, eventually stopping the hair from developing all together.
WHICH LASER DO YOU USE?
We use a powerful multi-technology machine that offers inter-changeable hand pieces from Sharplight Technologies.
WHY DO I NEED A SERIES OF TREATMENTS?
Hair grows in three phases,
The growth cycle is significant because laser hair removal treatment is only effective on actively growing hair i.e. during the Anagen stage, which is also when the melanin is at its most abundant.
