5 Benefits of IPL hair removal

Fed up of shaving, waxing and applying depilatory creams for hair removal? Looking for a quick, safe and more permanent solution? Let me introduce you to IPL, the effective way to reduce and inhibit hair growth in the long-term.

How does IPL work?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses a broad spectrum of light filters to target the dark pigments of your unwanted hair and destroy it at the root. If you think about how dark clothing absorbs heat on a hot, sunny day and how light clothing reflects it, that will give you a better understanding of how IPL works. Basically, the light is absorbed by the dark pigment of the hair, turns into heat and damages the growing cells that make up the hair. The hair then begins to shed. With continued IPL hair removal treatment this will inhibit the hair from growing altogether.

Now you have a better understanding of IPL for hair removal, let’s take a look at some of it’s key benefits…

Benefits of IPL

It won’t hurt!

Find other methods of hair removal, like epilating and waxing uncomfortable? You’ll be pleased to hear that Intense Pulsed Light hair removal is practically pain-free! The treated area may look slightly red and feel a little tender immediately after but this is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. The treated hairs will begin to shed within a week or so and you won’t feel a thing!

Completely safe

IPL is clinically-proven to offer safe and effective long-term hair removal results on the face and body. I am a fully trained, experienced and skilled IPL practitioner, with extensive knowledge of the system I use, so you can be rest assured you’re in good hands. I offer Intense Pulsed Light treatments on the following areas:

  • Forehead
  • Between brows
  • Cheeks
  • Sides of face
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Back
  • Decolletage
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Nipples
  • Bikini area
  • Buttocks
  • Hands
  • Fingers
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Feet
  • Toes

Quick and convenient

The time it takes to complete an IPL session will depend on the area of your unwanted hair, however most appointments take around 30 minutes. It’s quick, convenient and it’ll save you time carrying out other hair removal tasks at home.

Reduces hair growth

Intense Pulsed Light removes the hair directly from the root, this means there is much less chance of regrowth. It offers a much more permanent form of hair reduction, compared to razors and creams.

Over time, with continued IPL treatments, you should see permanently reduced hair growth.

Suitable for almost every skin type

The IPL system I use is proven to work on almost every skin type, apart from dark toned skin. There is a need for there to be a strong contrast between the melanin in the skin and the targeted hair follicles. With darker skin tones, there is a danger of the light being absorbed by melanin in the skin, in addition to the hair follicle.

To check your skin is suitable, I’ll need to get you in for a full consultation and patch test. This costs £15 but is fully refundable against your first IPL hair removal treatment.

IPL medical therapies

As well as being an effective form of permanent hair removal, IPL can also be used for non-invasive medical therapies. Here at the salon, I use a medically certified Intense Pulsed Light system to treat several skin issues including redness, blemishes, brown spots, scarring, vascular lesions and acne. IPL medical therapy is suitable for all skin types and treatments can be tailored to deliver the results you desire.

My current Intense Pulsed Light medical therapy treatments include:

Photo rejuvenation

Great for improving the look and feel of your skin without the pain and expense of invasive surgery. IPL reduces redness, blemishes, brown spots and scarring. It will also help to reduce wrinkles and pore size, leaving you with more youthful-looking and smoother-feeling skin.

Vascular lesions

Intense Pulsed Light is effective in reducing the appearance of thread veins, rosacea and cherry angiomas. It’s pain-free, risk-free and clients only usually require 1-3 treatments to achieve their desired results.


Suffering from acne spots? My acne IPL treatment will help to destroy bacteria on the skin and prevent new spots from forming. It will also reduce the production of sebum, keep inflammation at bay and help to stimulate the production of collagen; effective in reducing the appearance of scarring and improving overall skin texture.
