SkinBase™ IPL emits beams of visible pulsed light onto the skin. This light is absorbed by melanin in the hair and turns into heat energy. Providing there is sufficient melanin in the hair this heat disables the hair follicle so it can no longer produce a hair.
Permanent hair reduction is only possible if the hair is in the anagen growth phase. Only approximately 30% of hairs are in this growth phase at any one time which is why for permanent hair reduction, most areas of the body will need between 6-10 treatments. This can vary from client to client.
Which areas can be treated?
Unwanted hair can be removed from most parts of the body including back, chest, legs, upper lip & chin, bikini line and underarm. A slight warm tingling sensation best describes the feeling experienced during a SkinBase™ IPL treatment. This is minimised further by a specially developed cryo-handset that cools the skin allowing higher power levels to be used whilst still maintaining the client’s comfort.
The SkinBase™ IPL is infinitely more comfortable than most conventional methods like waxing, laser and electrolysis and many other IPL or laser systems.
Treatments are done by a female practitioner and are available in Welwyn Garden City. Parking is available.
