What is IPL Laser Hair Removal
How Essex Laser Clinic’s IPL Laser Treatments work
Laser Hair Removal or ‘IPL’ (Intense Pulse Light) has rapidly become the most effective, well- established method for treating unwanted or excessive hair.
At Essex Laser Clinic, we have chosen the industry-leading NRG ICE laser system – the only IPL permanent hair reduction system on the market that works on all hair and skin colours. The built in ICE cold system ensures pain-free, speedy results with little or no regrowth following your course of treatments.
On meeting Amanda or one of our highly trained, licensed, insured Essex Laser Clinic therapists for the first time, we will ask you to complete a medical questionnaire and discuss what you would really like to achieve from your treatment with us. Your treatment will then consist of the following:
The laser applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many follicles simultaneously. The laser produces a ray of high intensity light which gives off heat energy, heating the melanin (the pigment in the hair follicle) and destroying the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cell, preventing any further hair grown.
The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of the skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is covered. For IPL treatments, a thin layer of gel is applied to the skin to help guide the light.
Hair has a three stage lift cycle, starting with the growth stage, and only hairs that are in the growth stage will be destroyed by the laser.
Results vary depending on the part of the body and the skin and hair colour being treated – that’s why at Essex Laser Clinic all our clients benefit from an individually tailored treatment programme.
Our client satisfaction rate is unmatched amongst our broad community of male and female clients of Caucasian, Asian and Afro-Caribbean skin tones.
We recommend a course of 3-6 treatments, a month apart, in order to maximise results.
