Prepare For The Perfect Holiday With IPL™ Hair Removal Treatment

Posted on June 17th, 2014

With the summer months now upon us, for many, thoughts turn to going on holiday and enjoying the great weather abroad.

And even for those unable to get away this summer, the weather here is pretty good too.

But before you think about heading off on a plane to warmer climates you should consider treating yourself to IPL™ hair removal treatment to ensure you feel comfortable in your appearance while away.

The IPL™ (Intense Pulsed Light) system is perfect for the removal of unwanted hair. It provides a gentle, long lasting answer that’s fast and convenient, and beats shaving and waxing. Perfect.

So how quick is IPL™ treatment? Small areas, such as the underarms or upper lip, can be treated in 10 minutes or less. Even larger areas, like the back or legs, can be treated in under half an hour. You could even have it done on your lunch break!

The treatment is comfortable as various cooling methods keep the light pulses mild and skin-safe. It is actually more comfortable than electrolysis and waxing.

Although quick and convenient when opting for this type of treatment you will be required to return for follow-up sessions as hair grows at different rates on different areas of the body. Also, following treatment you will have to remain tan-free and keep treated areas out of the sun for four weeks.

The technology is cutting edge and the results are obvious from the first treatment. In addition, IPL™ has been shown to effectively treat all skin types, including Hispanic and Asian.

The IPL™ system can stop the growth of unwanted hair in the following areas:

  • The upper lip
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Underarm
  • Bikini Line
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Back

Prior to undertaking this treatment we strongly recommend you book a complimentary consultation with a practitioner who will discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have about the treatment and how it works and carry out a test patch.

Despite the good weather we are enjoying (for now) it is important that you avoid sun exposure and tanning (including fake tan) prior to and after treatment (for four weeks) as this can affect the level of success your treatment can achieve.

I was surprised to meet a GP with such a ready smile and willingness to give me the time I needed. I felt we had a conversation as equals and that she actually heard what I said. A couple of blood tests, a physiotherapy referral and I am better than I have been in a very long time
