We wanted to give you the lowdown on body hair removal using the SkinBase Permanent Hair Reduction system. This treatment is industry-leading in terms of speed and effectiveness compared with other professional machines.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) targets the root of the hair. The energy emitted heats up the hair follicle until it is disabled. When this happens, the follicle can no longer produce any new hairs. There are three stages of hair growth and it is the ‘anagen’ phase that is targeted by IPL. Approximately 30% of hairs are in this stage at any one time so a course of treatments is required and you will see progressive results with each treatment. The treatment is fast, effective, and pain-free – with no downtime!
A course of treatments is needed to achieve permanent hair reduction. However, the exact number will depend on the area treated as well as individual properties of your hair and skin pigmentation. Your SkinBase Therapist will carry out a full consultation and provide you with a plan as well as realistic expectations regarding the hair removal results that can be achieved for you.
