Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Laser Hair Removal
For those patients for whom the pain free laser hair removal method is not suitable, Face the Future also offers the latest techniques for Laser Hair Reduction using Intense Pulsed Light (for Fitzpatrick Skin Types 1, 2 and 3).
Face the Future is the only clinic for Laser Hair Removal in the Wakefield / Leeds and Yorkshire area that is able to offer all the gold standard machines for Laser Hair Removal.
Though IPL is generally not regarded as the gold standard for hair removal, we do have some patients who prefer this method, so our Lynton IPL still gets plenty of regular use.
However, for most patients Long Pulsed Nd Yag or Soprano Painfree Laser, are the preferred option, giving faster and more convenient results.
How does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal work?
Lasers and Intense pulsed light targets the pigment in the hair and either damages or destroys the hair follicle, thus preventing future hair growth.
Results you can expect:
Minimal discomfort will be experienced during the treatment. There may be some swelling or redness for 24-48 hours following the treatment. The hair may ‘fall out’ 1-3 weeks after the treatment, as the hair is pushed out of the new epidermis.
As hairs grow at different rates and some hairs are stronger than others, a course of treatment is usually recommended, with an average of 6 to 10 sessions recommended. For stubborn hair associated with hormonal hair growth top up sessions may be needed.
