What is SkinBase IPL Permanent hair reduction?
SkinBase IPL emits beams of visible pulsed light onto the skin. This light is absorbed by melanin in the hair and turns into heat energy. Providing ther e is sufficient melanin in the hair this heat disables the hair follicle so it can no longer produce a hair. Permanent hair reduction is only possible if the hair is in the anagen growth phase. Approximately 30% of hairs are in this growth phase at any one time.
Which areas can be treated?
Unwanted hair can be removed from most parts of the body including legs, upper lip & chin, bikini line, underarm, back, etc.
How many treatments are needed?
For permanent hair reduction, generally most areas of the body will need between 6-10 treatments however this can vary from client to client. With regards to the face, hair growth on this area is usually stimulated by hormonal imbalances and other relating factors and we advise 10-12 treatments may be required to see a reduction in re-growth. In some cases, for no known reason, some clients may require further treatments.
Who can it treat?
SkinBase IPL Permanent hair reduction has been clinically proven to work on almost all skin types except very dark skin. SkinBase IPL allows the practitioner to fine tune the settings to suit specific skin and hair combinations. Only white, grey, and red hairs do not respond to any IPL or laser treatments.
Is SkinBase IPL safe?
