If you’re sick of waxing, tweezing or plucking, laser is well recognised as an effective treatment for permanent hair reduction on any part of the body. Although results can be noticed after a few treatments, 5-10 treatments are generally recommended for ideal effect. Due to hair thickness, genetics, area and hormonal influences more treatments may be required and in some cases on going, periodic, maintenance treatments.
The Face Place MedSpa team spent 2½ years researching the top 5 medical-grade Laser/IPL machines to bring you the best results. Medical-grade machines are much more powerful than beauty therapy grade machines, and so have a much better hair reduction result. We use the revolutionary IPL elōs™ technology.
You must have an Initial Skin Consultation before proceeding with your first treatment – regardless of if you have had this treatment elsewhere. This ensures you are fully educated and informed before proceeding with treatment.
We are a best-practice clinic and consistently deliver optimal results by placing paramount importance on education and informed consent.
Once our clinician has assessed you at this first consult, we then book you an IPL Test Patch appointment.
Yes. It is a non-invasive solution that can be tailored to your individual concerns and skin type. Our medical skin therapists have also undergone significant training, are Syneron Candella certified and perform these treatments on all the team.
You may experience some reddening and/or local swelling at the treatment site, but this typically goes away within hours. On rare occasions, clients may experience some pain, crusting, blistering or bruising, but this typically resolves quickly. The skin can become darker or lighter following treatment, but will generally return to normal within a few weeks. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimize the risk of complications. Following the treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately.
Depending on the colour and thickness of the hair you are treating, and the severity of the individual problem, a series of 6-10 treatments may be required.
After a series of 6-10 treatments you will experience permanent hair reduction in the treated area, unless new hair follicles are activated by hormonal stimulation.
Hair growth occurs in a three-part growth phase: active, dormant, and transitional. To maximise the removal and delay of regrowth, hair must be treated while in the active phase. Since each hair on the body has its own individual growth cycle, a course of treatments over time disables each hair follicle while in its active growth phase.
