How often can I have IPL hair removal treatment?

What is IPL hair removal?

IPL hair removal pre­vents hair re-growth by destroy­ing the hair fol­li­cle. Unlike the alter­na­tive meth­ods of remov­ing hair, this treat­ment has long last­ing effects and tack­les the prob­lem effec­tively. If you use hair removal creams, wax or razors you are more likely to suf­fer from ingrown hairs and they can often lead to thicker, more vis­i­ble hair growth which can actu­ally make the prob­lem worse.

Why should you try it?

In today’s media, the image of hair­less men and women like Brad Pitt and Jen­nifer Lawrence is being pro­moted and con­sid­ered a desir­able look. Even though excess hair is com­mon amongst both men and women, the peer pres­sure can often dam­age your self-confidence. With our IPL hair removal treat­ment you can safely and effec­tively tackle the prob­lem in the pri­vacy of your own home which is both con­ve­nient and cost effective.

How often should you have the treatment?

Before start­ing the treat­ment, you need to con­sider your pre­vi­ous method of hair removal in the past as it can pre­vent this treat­ment from work­ing properly:

-          Waxed, tweezed or threaded: wait 3 weeks before start­ing treatment.

-          Hair removal or depila­tory cream: wait 1 week before start­ing treatment.

-          Shav­ing: you can start treat­ment right away

As hair grows in cycles, we rec­om­mend a spe­cific removal rou­tine so you can tar­get as many of the fol­li­cles as pos­si­ble. Within the first 3 months we sug­gest you treat the area every 2 weeks. After the first 3 months you should only use the treat­ment once a month until your last treatment.
