Leg & Speedo Line Permament IPL Hair Removal
How it works: IPL penetrates the skin to target the hair shaft and inhibit hair growth. It essentially destroys the follicle, meaning it can achieve permanent removal. Typically, the hair in treated areas falls out within 2-3 weeks.
Best for: People with hair darker than their skin — while professional therapists can vary the type of energy used, IPL Laser is not suited to people with very dark skin (black), because it targets the melanin in the hair, so the laser needs to be able to lock on to the dark pigment and needs to differentiate the dark hair from the skin.
Pros: Great for long term hair removal in all areas. “It causes no damage to the dermis so the most sensitive skin can be treated,” says Sydney skin therapist Christian Acuña. Great for white, olive and brown skins.
Cons: Laser hair removal can be painful, with most people describing it as a “snapping” sensation against the skin, and a sensation of heat from the IPL. We use a lower intensity on first visit to contrarest any discomfort.
Cost: $95 to $250 per treatment, with an average of six sessions recommended, depending on the area being treated. Several cycles of treatment are usually recommended to capture the hair follicles at different stages of the growth cycle. Some people require touch-up treatments, especially on larger areas.
Tip: While it may seem expensive, in the long run, many consider laser removal to be an investment that can pay off. “It is the most effective and cost effective treatment considering how much one can spend over a lifetime with options such as waxing or electrolysis,” says Christian.
