IPL and Laser
Why live with unwanted hair? With Laser & IPL hair removal, you can choose to enjoy smooth skin day after day - and say goodbye to waxing and shaving. At the Eternel Clinic we offer two forms of hair removal; Laser and IPL. Both methods are safe and offer long-term solutions to unwanted or excess hair for both men and women. Laser & IPL hair removal is suitable for most areas of the face and body.
At Eternel Clinic we offer one of the most advanced laser hair removal methods on the market today. Not all laser hair removal machines are created equal, therefore we are delighted to announce that we have one of the most innovative systems available today. Not only is treatment time reduced by up to 75% but the revolutionary technology ensures that treatment is more comfortable than traditional lasers.
How does Laser and IPL Hair Removal work?
Laser and IPL treatments emit a precise light that passes through the skin and is absorbed into heat at the hair follicle. Both treatments work on a similar principle which is to disable the hair follicles beneath the skin surface to stop the hair from growing.
How many treatments will I need?
With each method it is essential to have around 4 to 6 sessions of each treatment. Why? The hair has a cycle of growing phase, resting phase and transitional phase. In order for treatment to have the maximum effect IPL or Laser needs to work on the actively growing hair. At any one time, however, only a proportion of the hair is at the growing phase and this is the reason why several treatments are required to obtain maximum results.
How is treatment administered?
After a consultation with the Doctor it will be determined which treatment will suit you best. Our Doctor will be able to determine the amount of treatments you should require. Ice or gel, similar to that used in an ultrasound, will be placed on the area to be treated, the practitioner will then hold the smooth device over the skin and treatment will commence.
Is Laser or IPL Hair Treatment painful?
Patients may feel a slight tingling sensation, however from patient's experience, this is no more uncomfortable than waxing.
Is it safe?
Both IPL and Laser hair removal are non-invasive procedures which are perfectly safe. The settings used are individually chosen for your skin type and hair colour to minimise the risk of any skin reaction.
