Permanent Hair Removal IPL

Our Medical Grade Intense Pulse Light (IPL) System technology is proven to be the safest, most effective and comfortable solution for the superior results you demand. Our medical grade IPL machine is the only IPL system used throughout NHS hospitals which proves its high quality and great results. We also have an extra applicator head which is more powerful and specifically for fine, lighter coloured hair for permanent hair removal which no clinics offer in the bournemouth area. The latest research carried out concluded that intense pulse light was found to be nearly 4 times more effective than other lasers. It is our belief that the Lumina® provides the very best balance available today of clinical results, speed of treatment and client comfort.

Intense Pulse Light is much kinder to the skin. The IPL system is an extremely precise, revolutionary, state of the art system that can be adjusted to the exact parameters that will specifically disable the hair follicle. Unlike electrolysis where the therapist has to identify and probe each hair follicle, pulsed light uses a prism, which treats many hairs at once. If you are tired of painful waxing, shaving, plucking or electrolysis, permanent laser hair removal may be the best solution for you.

We are specialists in helping with transgender and polycystic ovarian syndrome clients and achieving fantastic results. We have many clients come to us to help resolve their own separate issues with hair removal. We are very discrete and understanding to your individual needs. We have been working with transgenders for many years now and have been chosen to provide permanent laser hair removal treatments on behalf of the NHS England. We understand that for our trans clients, the presence of facial hair is one of the biggest hurdles to ‘passing’ and can cause daily anguish. Our patients are extremely happy with the level of service they receive within our clinics from our sensitive, professional caring practitioners. We are keen to continue growing our work with NHS England in raising awareness in the Transgender community’s very specific needs in this regard and to extend the most professional, empathetic service possible.

How does Permanent Laser Hair Removal Work?

The laser energy which is absorbed by the hair which creates a heat that destroys the hair root without causing damage to the skin. The light is quickly passed over the area, treating many hairs at one time.

Hair grows in cycles. These cycles are known as anagen (growing), telogen (resting) and catogen (dying). In order for the hair removal treatment to be effective the hairs must be at the anagen stage. Research indicates that between 20% and 30% of hair follicles are in the growing or anagen stage at any one time. As a result multiple hair removal treatments are required.

Will laser hair removal work for me?

The best results are generally achieved on darker, coarse hair, but other factors may influence the treatment process. The best results also occur when there is plenty of target pigment melanin in the hair and therefore white, blonde and grey hair cannot be treated.We offer a free consultation during which the treatment most suitable for the Client can be evaluated and discussed in person.

Are there any after-effect following laser hair removal treatment?

Redness and sensitivity of the area of skin treated may be present for a few hours following treatment.

How long does the laser hair removal treatment take?

This will naturally depend on the size of the area being treated and can be discussed at your initial consultation.

How often do I need treatment?

Treatment interval times vary depending on hair growth however we usually leave 4-6 weeks in between the treatments.

How long must hairs be prior to treatment?

Hairs should be roughly 1 to 2mm long when the patient comes in for treatment so it is possible to mark out the treatment area. Long hairs take up the energy and prevent all of the heat reaching the hair follicle. Hair is therefore trimmed just before treatment for maximum transmission of the energy.
If the hair is normally shaved and can be seen then patients can shave right up to the day of treatment. Plucking/waxing should not be done, if the hair is not in the follicle it is impossible to treat it. Bleaching is also not advisable because the heat will not be channeled down the hair shaft as no colour will be present. Seek advice during the consultation if this will not be possible.

How many treatments are needed?

The number of treatments vary from person to person. The number of hair removal treatments needed will depend upon the hair density, colour, skin type and treatment area, together with ethnic background and hormones.

How do I prepare for a treatment?

Patients should avoid tanning on the treatment area roughly one month ahead of treatment to avoid excessive light absorption in the skin. Immediately after the treatment the skin is particularly sensitive to UV light and strong sunlight should be avoided for at least 2 weeks. High factor sun lotions can be used.

What is Permanent Laser Hair Removal treatment like?

The procedure is non-invasive and pain free. Many people describe the procedure as a flick of an elastic band.

Why do I need a Test Patch?

This is to check your skin suitability and to ensure there are no adverse reactions to the treatment. A period of 2 – 5 days must be left between this and commencement of treatment. Not all clients will require a test patch and this will be assessed within the consultation.

What skin types can be treated?

All skin types can be treated with the IPL machine except black skin type.

Our client base includes people from many surrounding areas such as Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Dorchester, Ringwood, Weymouth, Bridport and Southampton to name a few.
