Why you should consider IPL hair removal
We know, hair removal isn’t something you’d usually be thinking about at this time of year. It’s getting colder, we’re wearing more trousers and tights so the last thing you want to think about is hair removal right?
Of course not! You know us here at the Nail & Body Boutique we always like to plan ahead! 😉
By starting a course of hair removal now it could mean that next summer you won’t even have to think about it! You could be completely hair free.
Intense Pulse Light Removal or IPL hair removal, works by using a pulse of light which is calibrated to target only the melanin in hair follicles. Melanin is what gives our hair and skin it’s colour, so, by targeting the high concentration in follicles, it disables the hair cells without damaging any of the surrounding skin.
The light energy is absorbed by the follicle, which heats it up to the point of destroying it and prevents the cell from producing anymore hair.
After the treatment, the hair will fall out, usually within one to two weeks, and will not grow back. Because it can only affect ‘active’ hair follicles, those that are growing at the exact time of treatment, you will need multiple sessions to ensure you get complete hair removal. We also offer maintenance appointments after a course of 6 sessions have been completed.
It’s a virtually pain free, permanent solution for hair removal, it’s suitable for both men and women and can be used on the face and the body.
Unfortunately, IPL hair removal is only suitable for dark hair – due to the levels of melanin needed for it to work.
We advise that waxing and plucking is strictly avoided between treatments, but shaving and trimming (if needed) won’t affect the results. It’s the perfect treatment for sensitive skin, it’s so much quicker and cheaper than laser removal and it’s suitable for all skin types.
Give us a call to discuss your needs & any questions you might have. Prices start from as little as £45, with the full price list here – but please note a patch test is required before any IPL hair removal treatment can begin, this is covered in the consultation fee of £20, which is redeemable against any IPL treatment booked.
