Some people are naturally more hairy than others. Having excessive body hair can be embarrassing and upsetting for both men and women. It can be present from birth or may appear later in life, usually during puberty or as a result of conditions like polycycstic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Removing body hair can be difficult, painful, inconvenient and temporary. The traditional methods for hair removal are shaving, waxing, sugaring, plucking, threading and, more recently, electrolysis. Although some of these treatments are offered by the salon (due do some clients not being suitiable for laser therapy) these methods can lead to irritable skin, quick and thicker regrowth (shaving) and ingrown hairs and none of these are permanent long lasting solutions.
Ultimate Skin Clinic offers the latest Hair Removal treatment, administered by advanced therapists trained to the highest standard. The sessions are virtually painless and have long lasting effects.
- Laser IPL therapy
Q: Is treatment with IPL painful?
A: Everyone’s pain threshold is different but all you will really feel is a warm sensation with a slight ‘elastic band flick’ feeling.
Q: Does the laser pick up blonde or grey hair?
A: The laser can only treat hair that has more pigmentation than the skin. Light grey and blonde can be more difficult to treat with the IPL. Your therapist may recommend waxing or threading as an alternative.
Q: How many treatments with the laser IPL will I need?
A: We say a minimum of 6 sessions but it may take more or less.
