IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a new and improved way of safe hair removal. It is a reliable method of removing unwanted hair, for both men and women.
IPL stands out as the most effective and least painful method among other hair removal techniques. When compared to laser treatments, the worldwide patented No+Vello IPL hair removal system is less abrasive on the skin and can treat a wide range of different skin types and hair colours to give better results for a broader range of clientele.
How does it work?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, the IPL systems delivers rapid pulses of high intense light to the area being treated. Based on the principle of selective photothermolysis, pulses of filtered light are attracted to melanin, a pigment found in hair. The light is absorbed by the melanin and converted into heat, selectively destroying the germinating cells that feed the hair follicles for growth. By eliminating these cells, the hair then dies and begins to fall out, inhibiting future growth. This means that regrowth occurs slower and hairs come through much finer.
Which areas can be treated?
- Upper lip
- Full Face
- Full Neck
- Naval line
- Lower & Upper Back
- Upper & Lower Legs
How often are the treatments required?
For best results treatments have to be a minimum of 4 weeks apart and no more than 6 weeks apart. This allows for the hair growth cycle to return to Anagen the active growth stage.
Are there any side effects?
It is normal for there to be some redness around the treated area, swelling around the follicle, tingling or a sensation of warmth for some time after treatment. These effects usually subside quickly (within 24 hours). There is no downtime associated with IPL treatment, making it possible for you to receive treatments during your lunch break and return to work the same day.
