What is IPL Laser Hair Removal: 

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is an innovative, reliable and safe method of reducing unwanted hair for both men & women. It is a type of light therapy that utilises a range of wavelengths to target the pigments in the hair follicle. Hair growth is reduced by a series of treatments using controlled light impulses, this is known as photo depilation. Light is absorbed by the pigment of the hair (this is what gives the hair its colour) causing the hair follicle to heat up and be destroyed without any damage to the surrounding tissue. By removing the hair follicles hair growth is significantly reduced. 


Why choose IPL Laser Hair Removal: 

It stands out as the most effective and least painful method among other hair removal techniques. When compared to other laser treatments, the patented IPL hair removal system is gentler on the skin and more versatile in treating a broader range of skin tones and hair colours with better results. Here at Appear Natural Aesthetics we use a state of the art, high energy AW3 IPL laser system. IPL is the treatment of choice for women and men who want to remove hair and feel released from the constant ties of waxing and shaving. 

 

What to expect during the treatment: 

You will be required to shave the area 24 hours before your appointment. During the treatment Claire will talk you through the process step by step. A clear gel is applied to the skin and you’ll be asked to wear some goggles to protect your eyes from the light of the IPL machine. The handheld device which emits pulses of light is then passed over the treatment area. During the treatment you will feel a pinging sensation & slight heat as the light hits the hair follicles. 

 

Aftercare: 

After your IPL laser hair removal treatment is complete, it is important that you follow the aftercare advice that Claire gives you. It is common to experience redness and swelling for up to 48 hours after, however this is usually short lived. If the area feels uncomfortable you can apply aloe vera or witch hazel regularly with clean cotton wool, not fingers. Keeping your aloe vera in the fridge will provide a cooling effect, soothing the treated area. 

For 24-48 hours after your treatment, do not take hot showers or baths, avoid exercise, do not apply makeup, soap or perfumed products to the treated area. It is important that you do not scratch, pick or touch the skin. 

After the treatment, you may leave with visible hair growth, however, the hairs will start to fall out around 1-3 weeks after your session, this is known as the ‘shedding phase’. To encourage the hair to shed, you can shave or exfoliate the treatment area, but you must wait at least 4 days after treatment before doing so. 

For 30 days post treatment, we advise that you avoid UV exposure and always wear a minimum of SPF50. 

 

How many sessions are required: 

A course of 8-10 treatments is recommended, although it may take slightly less or more, this is different for each individual & will be discussed during your consultation. There must be a minimum of 30 days between each IPL session. Initially, sessions will be around every 4-6 weeks. As hair regrowth slows, these sessions will be spaced further apart, progressing to even 6-8 weeks apart.
