IPL Laser Hair Removal
At Perfect Image, we recognise the distress and embarrassment excessive hair can cause for both men and women, and the impact on confidence and self-esteem. We also understand the inconvenience such problems bring.
IPl hair removal is a safe and effective way of reducing hair growth by up to 75%, especially in darker, coarser hair.
Our IPL machine is an effective hair removal system and approved by the FDA. The sensation during treatment has been likened to hot oil or the flicking of an elastic band against the skin. Whilst not generally considered painful it can cause discomfort and obviously the level of discomfort will vary from person to person. There may be some soreness following treatment, like sunburn, but this should subside within a day or two and there are no unwanted side-effects.
Most clients are suitable for IPL hair treatment but it works most efficiently on light to medium skin tones and on darker hair. There are also certain circumstances where treatment may be refused including:
- Specific medication (including photosensitivity or anticoagulant)
- History of keloid scarring
- Active Herpes Simplex (cold sores)
- Previous history of skin cancer
- Damage to the skin
