Have you ever tried to reduce or remove red, white, blonde or grey hair? If so, we don’t need to tell you – it’s a HASSLE!
Laser hair removal, up till now your best option, simply doesn’t work well on light-coloured hair. If you’re blonde or grey or a redhead, you’ve probably already discovered this for yourself. Black is easy, but if you’re looking to remove these lighter-coloured hairs, you’ll have to turn to Sydney’s best beauty specialist: Svetlana. She’ll help you get rid of all those annoying hairs once and for all.
Already known for her famous 7-minute Brazilian waxing, and for her unique holistic approach as an eyebrow specialist, Svetlana is now offering something new on the Sydney beauty scene: Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, hair removal. IPL is the latest technology, and there’s a very good chance it can help you, even if you haven’t had any luck with traditional laser hair removal.
Tearing your hair out trying to get the silky look and feel you want? Come discover a whole new way of harnessing the power of light to easily and quickly eliminate those unwanted hairs. Give us a call and find out how easy it can be!
How is IPL different?
IPL uses a different type of light. Traditional laser is a single focused beam, but IPL gives a broader spectrum of wavelengths. If you have a skin reaction to traditional laser treatment, it’s more likely to be permanent. You may find that with IPL, you need one or two additional treatments. However, every person is different. You’ll especially want to try IPL if traditional laser treatment didn’t work for you. It could be highly effective. And most of our clients tell us that IPL treatments are far more comfortable.
Why will I fall in LOVE with IPL?
Most of our clients tell us that IPL is far more comfortable than any other hair-removal method they’ve ever tried before! Waxing, electrolysis, even traditional laser treatment – IPL beats them, hands-down. For most hair types and areas of the body, IPL is simply the best way to eliminate or slow regrowth to the maximum possible. Did we mention that you’ll never suffer with an ingrown hair again! Of course, for many clients, the biggest advantage is that laser treatment didn’t do anything due to their hair colour. In that case, you just have to try IPL. We think you’ll love it!
Can you really treat red, white, grey, or blonde hair?
Yes, we can! On your first visit, you’ll meet with our Hair Removal Specialist. Regular lasers target dark hairs, carrying heat into the follicle through the hair’s melanin (dark pigment). That’s why they work best only with the combination of light skin and dark hair. Our technology will give fast results with any hair colour, even the most difficult ones out there. At your first visit, our Hair Removal Specialist may recommend waxing for areas not suitable for IPL treatment. If you’ve been treated elsewhere for over a year and you still haven’t seen results – call us for a FREE assessment. We’re that certain we can help YOU!
Doesn’t IPL cost more?
Not in the long term! It’s true that each individual session may be more expensive. But you’ll save money in the long term because you’ll get more effective treatment, with less re-growth. With IPLS, you’re investing in your body and getting better results that will stay silky-smooth much longer. (For lip area, because hair growth is hormonal, maintenance sessions may be needed every two to three months.)
How do I prepare for my IPL treatment?
It’s super-easy to get ready! Here are a few important things you should do to get ready to come see us…
- Our Hair Removal Specialist can only work on your hair if we can see it! Grow it before your visit to a length of at least 2mm, which we think of as “double stubble.”
- Keep cool before your visit: on the day of your visit, avoid sun exposure, hot showers, tight clothes, or exercise.
- Healthy, clean skin: don’t tan in the sun, indoors or with self-tanners for two weeks (14 days) before and 3 days after your appointment. Skin in the area(s) you want treated should be clean and bare (no makeup).
- Check your meds: certain medications are photosensitive, which means they react to light. If possible, put off taking medications or vitamins, even without a prescription, until you have completed your entire Treatment Plan with us.
What can I expect at my session?
At your first visit, you’ll meet with our Hair Removal Specialist, who will review your hair type, and help develop a Personalized Treatment Plan. This could include some combination of IPL and waxing, along with scheduled touch-ups for when your treatments are finished.
How long does IPL take?
Each IPL treatment will last from between 10 to 25 minutes. It depends on where you’re having it done and what type of hair you have. If you have any questions, ask us when you call, or ask your Hair Removal Specialist when you come for your visit. We’re Sydney’s best, and no matter what coloured hair you have, we’re confident you’ll love IPL as much as we do.
