What is iPulse hair removal?
iPulse is a new type of hair removal technology which utilises light to disable the cells within the hair follicle and stop the hair from growing back. This unique way of removing unwanted hair is quick, easy and affordable. Never wax or shave again
The iPulse method is fast growing in popularity across the world and could mean the end of painful methods like waxing electrolysis and lasers. Results are so long lasting that one short course of treatments and a maintenance session once or twice a year will mean you may never have to wax or shave again.
How does iPulse work?
iPulse emits a beam of pulsed light onto the skin. This light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and turns it into heat energy. The follicle is heated to a temperature which alters the cells structure and stops hair regeneration.
How does it feel. . . . .will it be painful?
A slight warm tingling sensation best describes the feeling during an iPulse treatment. This is minimised by a special cooling gel applied just before the treatment starts. iPulse is definitely more comfortable and quicker than old fashioned methods of hair removal like waxing laser and electrolysis. After the treatment some people experience a slight reddening (erythema) and warming of the skin, especially on more sensitive parts of the body. A soothing gel such as aloe vera or witch hazel can be applied to calm the skin and help any redness subside naturally and quickly.
How long do iPulse sessions take?
You will be amazed at how quickly and completely iPulse works. Here are some typical treatment times including customer care; Underarm, Upper lip or chin 5-15 minutes per treatment Bikini line or lower leg 20-30 minutes per treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Due to the multiple phases of hair growth, several treatments may be required on each treatment area. Your fully qualified therapist will advise you on how many are likely to be needed.
What areas can be treated with iPulse?
Unwanted hair can easily be removed from all parts of the body-including legs, chin, upper lip, bikini, back, and underarms. Indeed the only areas that cannot be treated are over tattoos or immediately around the eyes. To make sure there is no adverse reaction a quick test patch is carried out prior to treatment during your initial iPulse consultation.
Does it matter what hair or skin type I am?
Some less advanced IPLs can only be used on a limited amount of skin types but iPulse has been clinically proven to be safe and effective on almost all skin and hair types. Dark hair on light skin is the easiest to treat because the colour difference enables light to be easily absorbed by the melanin in the hair, but iPulse allows the practitioner to adjust the settings to the perfect level to suit any type of skin and hair combination. Only white or grey hairs do not respond to any IPL or laser treatment.
