Best Permanent Hair Removal In Portsmouth
There are so many ways to remove unwanted hair, daily shaving or waxing for example, but few ways to remove it permanently. In our laser hair removal clinic, our experts use a number of treatments to remove unwanted hair and ingrown hair for good:
- Laser Hair Removal
- IPL (Intense Pulse Light) Hair Removal
How it Works
Hair reduction works when the light energy produced by the Laser or IPL equipment is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles (melanin).
The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the cells in the hair follicles which are responsible for hair growth, without damaging the surrounding cell, resulting in permanent hair removal.
The Laser or IPL is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released, which targets many hair follicles simultaneously. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of the skin and the IPL or laser hair removal process is repeated until the entire area is covered.
Laser Hair Removal vs IPL Hair Removal
Both IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and Laser Hair Removal treatments generate heat to kill hair follicles. The hair removal method used depends on your skin tone and hair type. This is identified as part of your hair removal consultation by our highly qualified practitioners. You will be patch tested during the consultation and your skin will need to be free of natural and/or fake tan.
Your Treatment – How Many Sessions?
A treatment will be required over a period of time between 4-6 weeks in order to catch each cycle of your hair growth. Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple hair removal treatments are needed. The number of sessions you will need varies, although typically 6-12 treatments are needed for optimum results. This is unique to each client, depending on you and the area of the body we are treating. Permanent hair removal takes place when all cycles of your hair growth are gone.
How Long Does IPL or Laser Treatment Last?
You are likely to see hair reduction after a couple of treatments. Over time, the follicles from each cycle are eliminated forever! You’ll be surprised how quickly you notice the difference. But once it’s gone, it’s gone forever leaving with beautiful smoother skin.
