How does SkinBase IPL work?
SkinBase IPL emits intense pulsed light onto the skin. This light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and turns the heat into energy. Therefore the treatment stops the hair regeneration. As the hair cycle varies on different part of the body, and due to hormonal changes, the number of treatments will vary from client to client.
Which areas can be treated with SkinBase IPL?
Unwanted hair can be removed from most parts of the body including legs, upper lip and chin, bikini line, underarm, back, etc.
How many treatments are needed?
For permanent hair reduction, generally most areas of the body will need between 6-10 treatments however this can vary from client to client. With regards to the face, hair growth on this area is usually stimulated by hormonal imbalances and other relation factors and we advise 10-12 treatments may be required to see reduction in re-growth.
Who can it treat?
Some less advanced IPL systems can only be used on a limited amount of skin types but SkinBase IPL has been clinically proven to work on almost all skin types except very dark skin. dark hair on light skin is the easiest to treat because the colour difference enables the light to be easily absorbed by the melanin in the hair without absorbing too much into the skin. Only white and grey hairs do not respond to any IPl or laser treatments.
Is SkinBase IPL safe?
SkinBase IPL technology meets CE European regulations only granted to treatments that are clinically tested and proven to be safe and effective.
How does it feel?
A slight warming tingling sensation best describes the feeling experienced during SkinBase IPL treatment. This is minimised by a specially developed cryogenic-handset that's is placed on the skin before the treatment.
