The removal of unwanted hair can cause pain and anxiety but now with LUMENIS M22 intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment, the removal of hair is easier and is long term.
What is involved in the treatment?
The Lumenis M22* IPL Hair Removal treatment is a safe, non-invasive treatment that permanently reduces hair growth, resulting in smooth, beautiful skin.
A cool gel is applied to the treated area, then a pulse of light, that feels similar to a rubber band snap, is emitted from the handpiece.
The unique IPL technology targets the hair follicles, and impairs their ability to grow hair. IPL hair removal is effective on black, brown and red hair.
Some redness may occur after your treatment, however there is no downtime – you can resume daily activities straighter after your treatment.
What are the benefits?
No more shaving, plucking, waxing and electrolysis!
How many treatments will I need?
Hair grows in three cycles called Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. IPL results are most effective with hair in the Anagen (or active growth) phase when the hair is highest in pigment.
The Lumenis IPL Hair Removal treatment is generally administered in a series of 4 or 6 sessions that provides excellent long-term results. Significant hair reduction is already visible after the first session.
Please note that results vary with each individual, especially when certain medications or topical applications are being used. Also since the process relies on the absorption of light to create the heat to kill the hairs, the darker the hair is in colour the more successful and quicker the treatment works.
