Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

Get to the root of the problem

For women, hair is only welcome on their heads, which explains why some have their waxing schedules set up way ahead.

But if monthly visits to the salons seem cumbersome, the Intense Pulsed Light treatment may offer a convenient solution.

What is Intense Pulsed Light?

It is a semi-permanent hair reduction method which uses a broad spectrum of light to weaken active hair follicles.

Each pulse of light energy converts to heat energy which eliminates hair from the root. Hair growth is delayed and in some cases, there may not even be re-growth.

What is the difference between IPL and waxing?

Waxing is a low-cost and effective method of hair removal and keeps skin hair-free for 2-3 weeks. Re-growth is finer. The procedure also helps to exfoliate the skin and leaves the skin soft and smooth.

IPL hair reduction offers longer-lasting results and can get rid of hair even before it becomes visible. Salon visits are reduced to once every 4-6 weeks. After six sessions, the next visit will be after two years or more.

Is it safe?

At waxing salon Strip, the IPL machines are US Food & Drug Administration approved. For certain clients, the treated area may turn mildly red.

This is normal and subsides within 24 hours. The machines deliver a preset safe-level of energy to the skin.

Which areas can be treated with IPL?

Almost any area.

Is there any pre and post-care requirement?

Skin must be well-moisturised. After an IPL treatment, avoid extensive sun exposure for at least four weeks. Sun block is highly recommended.

Avoid the following, 24 hours after a treatment: Hot bath, swimming or sunbathing, heat or UV treatment, tight clothing, perfumed products on the treated part as well as touching, scrubbing or rubbing the areas.
