IPL Hair Removal

Half Leg IPL Hair Removal

Why live with unwanted hair?

Using Lynton’s gold standard medical grade LUMINA I offer Laser and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments which offer a safe, long-term solution to unwanted, excess hair for both men and women. This effective hair removal treatment is suitable for the face and body, it’s quick and results can be seen after just a few sessions.

A course of treatments is usually required at 4 – 8 weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle. Treatment will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft and free from painful in-growing hairs.

I only use the very latest unrivalled, state of the art specialist equipment supplied by the UK’s No.1 manufacturer – Lynton Lasers. Medically CE marked and favoured by medical practitioners in the NHS, the LUMINA provides dramatic results for various skin concerns.

All my clinicians have received in-depth, comprehensive training, covering the key fundamentals of laser & IPL, and most importantly: how to achieve highly clinically effective results, whilst keeping our clients safety as the primary objective.

Common Questions

How does IPL light assisted hair removal work?
Light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment (colour) in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.

How is an IPL treatment carried out?
The Intense Pulsed Light is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.

Am I suitable for IPL treatment?
Most people are suitable for treatment. For IPL, best results are often achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair however, contains less melanin and is harder to treat. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment.
However, laser treatment can sometimes be used instead of IPL. We recommend a consultation with your clinician to ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you.

How does an IPL treatment feel?
Treatment sensation varies but is often described as “a flick of an elastic band”. Typically no anaesthesia is required and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable. Laser is, in general, more tolerable than IPL.

What will I see after an IPL treatment?
The hair follicles are damaged by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.

Are there any side effects with IPL?
The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Adverse reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.

How many IPL treatments are necessary?
Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the area treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are needed for optimum results.

How long does each IPL treatment take?
Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Consultation Procedure

Prior to an IPL treatment, a consultation is conducted in which a medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment, there is also an opportunity for any questions you may have to be answered. Before treatment commences you must provide written consent and a small test patch will be carried out.
