IPL Permanent Hair Reduction
Shaving, waxing, tweezing, and hair removal creams have been replaced by hair reduction and removal in a flash. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses short, safe bursts of light emitted from a flash-lamp to remove hair from all body areas in minutes, permanently reducing and mostly eliminating unwanted hair.
Unlike laser hair removal, which uses one wave length of light, IPL uses the full spectrum and different wave lengths of light to successfully remove hair. While laser hair removal and IPL both use light to reduce hair growth, they are two separate methods for reducing hair growth. If you've tried laser in the past, or the thought of a 'laser' being used on your skin makes you feel uneasy, IPL could be another proven, safe and effective solution.
How Does Ellipse Hair Reduction work?
The operator guides the light over the treatment area. The unique Ellipse I2PL system carefully filters this light in two ways to ensure that only light with the correct characteristics (wavelengths) is allowed to reach your skin. This is unlike a laser hair removal system.
Hair contains pigment (melanin) that absorbs the light and converts it into heat. The hair transmits this heat into the hair follicle, which is then destroyed and rendered unable to produce new hair. That's it! The solution for permanent hair removal Brisbane men and women have been searching for is fast, efficient and effective.
Does it Hurt?
Tolerance of pain is very individual from person to person so it's nearly impossible to say that the removal of hair using this method does or does not cause pain. With that being said, no anesthetics are required for this hair removal process, and most people describe the sensation as similar to that of a rubber band snapping onto the skin.
How may Ellipse treatments do I need?
Hair growth is cyclical, as hair follicles go through resting and growing phases. Only follicles in the growth phase contain hair and are destroyed by the heat. Resting hair follicles need to enter the growth phase before they can be effectively destroyed. That's why it is necessary to repeat the removal treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been through the growth phase.
The number of treatments needed will vary depending on factors such as hair colour, skin colour, sun exposure, male/female and density of hair as well as the area being treated. In general 4-6 removal treatments are recommended, however, some people may find they need further treatment on more resilient areas.
