Skin Base IPL is an advanced light based therapy that works by targeting structures within the skin. We have added this therapy to our range of beauty treatments offering our clients this permanent hair reduction treatment as an alternative traditional waxing.

How does Skin Base IPL work?
Skin Base IPL transmits beams of visible intense pulsed light onto the skin. This light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair or skin and turns into heat energy altering the component structure of the target in this case the hair follicle. Providing there is sufficient melanin in the hair and it is in the anagen growth phase, the treatment stops the hair regeneration.

Which areas can be treated with Skin Base IPL?
Unwanted hair can be removed from most parts of the body including legs, upper lip & chin, bikini line, underarm, back, etc. Areas that cannot be treated using Skin Base IPL are; the area immediately around the eyes, over tattoos, some moles, head hair, men’s beards, and mucous membranes. 

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?
Skin Base IPL has been clinically proven to work on almost all skin types except very dark skin. Dark hair on light skin is the easiest to treat and achieves the best results.
