Trusted Regina laser hair removal experts share their information on Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment - Part 2

Here they share their information on Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment - Part 2:


How does IPL work on the hair? The melanin in the hair (which gives hair its colour) absorbs the light, which is momentarily converted into heat. This heat is transferred to the growth cells at the root of the hair, permanently disabling them. Most colours of unwanted hair can be removed from all parts of the body, except very sensitive areas such as the inside of the nose and ear.

Does IPL hurt? Not really, although the treatment sensation will vary from client to client. Most of our clients say that it feels like the flicking of an elastic band on their skin. Any discomfort is momentary and there is no lasting sensation.

What are the side effects of IPL treatments? You need a consultation before we can treat you. You should follow our advice before and after your IPL treatment. IPL does not work on all hair colours and all skin types. You may need 6-12 treatments before you can say goodbye to shaving and waxing, although individual results can vary. Improving your skin using IPL may need around 6 treatments and individual results can vary. Immediately after IPL treatment you may notice a slight reddening of the skin around the hair follicles or slight local swelling which may last for up to a few hours (or in very rare cases, a few days). These are positive indications that the IPL treatment was effective and no cause for concern. Following your IPL treatment, areas of pigmentation will darken and rise to the surface of the skin before being exfoliated naturally within 1-2 weeks. This is a positive indication of a successful IPL treatment and no cause for concern.

Is IPL safe? IPL is safe, non-invasive, has minimal side effects and requires no recovery time. IPL is gentle and we believe it is the most advanced hair removal and skin treatment system available. We value the comfort and safety of the client very highly and will take the greatest care to ensure that you feel at ease about every aspect of the treatment.

What is Intense Pulsed Light? IPL systems use hand-held flash lamps to emit micro pulses of light across a broad band of visible wavelengths. By using gentle pulses of light momentarily to create heat, IPL can permanently disable hair follicles, preventing future growth. Similarly, IPL also achieves excellent long term results when treating thread veins, skin pigmentation, acne and other skin complaints. On your first visit, your technician will carry out a detailed consultation and assessment before recommending a treatment plan to suit your individual requirements.

I have polycystic ovary syndrome, can you help me? A large number of PCOS patients are being assisted by us. In fact, we are already linked to a PCOS clinic which is referring patients to us and we offer a price reduction.

How do I prepare for a treatment/consultation? Refrain from any form of depilation for 2 weeks before your appointment, we need to assess the extent of the hair to assess the number of treatments. Please do not remove the hair prior to attending a consultation.

Please avoid the use of:

• Sunbeds

• Self tan

• Vitamin A and AHA products

• Saunas/steam baths

• Suntanning

Will I be suitable for treatment? The majority of patients are, however there are some exceptions:

• Pregnancy

• Keloid scarring

• Photo sensitivity inducing drugs

• Compromised immune system

Can all areas be treated? Yes, with the exception of the brow bone as this is too close to the eyes.

Is it permanent? The hair follicles which have been destroyed are not capable of producing further hair. However, dormant hair follicles can be activated due to major hormonal disruption.

Trusted Regina laser hair removal experts share their information on Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment - Part 1

Here they share their information on Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Treatment - Part 1:

How long does the treatment take?
From 15 minutes to a maximum of 2 hours, depending on the areas treated. 
How frequently should I attend?
Approximately monthly for laser hair reduction. This interval will lengthen after the first few treatments as the regrowth will slow down.

Having a tan can put you at a greater risk for burns from the laser.  The laser seeks out the melanin in the root of the hair and when the skin is tan the melanin comes to the surface which gives you the tan or darker apperance.  It's best to wait till your skin has returned to its natural color with no tan lines and that you are careful with the sun while doing treatment with the IPL laser. 
Are there any contra-indications to treatment?
Epilepsy, lupus, diabetes and cancer will probably make you unsuitable for most treatments. Also, there are some medications which are incompatible which will be checked before any treatment commences.
Do I have to have a consultation and a patch test, even if I have had a previous IPL treatment some where else?
Yes. We need to assess your medical history and current skin condition to check that you are (still) suitable for treatment and we determine the correct settings for your particular treatment from the patch test. We also ask you to sign a consent form that confirms we have explained the IPL treatment process, and allows us to carry out treatments and store your personal data. During your initial consultation, your technician will devise an individual course of treatments suited to you, and will discuss your treatment expectations. 
Why do some of the hairs grow back after my first treatment?
Hair goes through a 3-stage cycle, and IPL treatment is only effective when the hair is in the growing phase. Since only about 15% of hairs are in the growing phase at any given time, some new hairs will grow after each treatment. These are then successfully removed during subsequent treatments. This is why a course of approximately 6-12 treatments is normally recommended, after which the number of remaining hairs is very small.


Can I have IPL hair treatments if I have blonde, red, grey or white hair?
In simple terms, the greater the contrast between your hair colour and your skin colour, the more easily we can achieve great results. If you have blonde or red hair you will need to have a consultation with a technician to determine whether there is enough pigment in the hair for you to have a successful treatment. Grey or white hairs are not always suitable for this type of treatment, as they usually do not contain sufficient melanin to absorb light. Some people find a number of grey or white hairs remain visible after a course of IPL treatments. Research is being carried out to find ways to boost the melanin in grey and white hair for long enough to allow successful IPL treatments and we are monitoring these developments.
