At Victoria’s Cosmedi Spa in Tasmania We Offer Permanent Hair Reduction
Looking for a long-lasting solution to unwanted hair?
According to a recent survey women will spend between 10-13 thousand dollars in their lifetime on hair removal. Also, 88% of women will spend four months of their lifetime removing body hair with products like waxing, razors and epilators.
The Good News Is You Can Spend A Lot Less Time And Money On Permanent Hair Reduction…
At Victoria’s Cosmetic and Medical Clinic we offer IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology. This technology is a non-invasive, long-lasting and gentle solution to unwanted hair on the face, legs, back, bikini line or any other part of the body. The IPL technology has been used safely and effectively for over a decade and can eliminate dozens of hairs with each pulse.
It is important to note that permanent hair reduction means long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing after a treatment regime.
What’s Involved with IPL Treatment?
The unique design of this technology is that we can design a unique customised treatment to suit your hair colour, texture and the location of the body hair. Hair that has some pigment in it can be treated effectively and usually, the hair needs to be darker than the surrounding skin for the treatment to be effective. The reason for this is that if the hair is lighter than the surrounding skin there won’t be enough Melanin in your hair shaft for IPL treatment to be effective.
The IPL Treatment removes hair through highly controlled flashes of light. These are selectively absorbed by the Melanin in the hair filled follicles that lie below the surface of the skin. The absorbed light heats the hair, thus damaging or destroying the regrowth potential of the follicle, and it does this without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The IPL Treatment…
Before treatment starts we recommend you trim away the hair above the skin at home at least two or three days before treatment. You can shave or trim with scissors. The reason you’ll want to do this is because if you don’t long hair will burn into the skin causing pain and reducing the effectiveness of treatment.
The treatment requires two visits spaced around 4-8 weeks apart. The first treatment involves a cold gel being applied to your skin and spread over the treatment site. Next the IPL handpiece is applied gently to gel and the pulses of light will begin.
Once the gel is wiped away some of the hairs will also be wiped away. The hair that isn’t removed will be released from the follicle over the next two to three weeks. The second appointment is a re-treatment where the same process will be done.
