IPL - Hair Reduction
Venus Versa Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal system is a cost-effective permanent hair reduction treatment.
This is a virtually pain-free non-invasive way to safely remove unwanted, stubborn hairs for long-lasting and often permanent results.
Prior to treatment we will provide a full consultation to discuss your expectations, explain the treatment and take a medical history to confirm suitability for treatment.
How does Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) work for hair reduction?
Light-based energy is applied to the area to be treated which pulsates with a quick flash of light. This leaves the skin unharmed but destroys the hair follicle, removing hair and discouraging re-growth.
The hairs fall out after 1 -3 weeks as the epidermis renews.
Who is the ideal candidate?
The ideal patient is fair skinned with dark hair. The darker the hair, the more easily it is treated.
How many IPL hair removal treatments are necessary?
Only hair in the active growth stage of the growth cycle is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 6-8 weeks, depending on the site treated, until a satisfactory result is seen. The number of treatments required varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are required for maximum results.
How much does the treatment cost?
