IPL for Unwanted Facial Hair
Fast and virtually pain free treatments means in 3 to 6 treatments you will be virtually hair free and care free. Ideal for men and women with unwanted facial hair, our Medical Grade Starlux systems utilise the 525nm yellow and 650nm red wavelengths that deliver smooth pulse technology, contact cooling along with high repetition pulses. Our systems effectively treat fine light hairs to deep stubborn dark hairs on all skin colours. Treatments for the face are performed at 6-8 week intervals.
Lip or Chin
$90 | allow 15 minutes
3/4 Face inc. Lip
$220 | allow 30 minutes

Jawline and Neck

IPL for Unwanted Body Hair
Perfect for all body areas and ingrown hairs. Treatment intervals on the body are at 10-12 weeks as body hair grows back slower due to decreased blood flow in these areas. Don't be fooled into accepting hair removal treatments (for the body) being performed closer together at 4-6 week intervals - this is a waste of your time and money, usually resulting in a massive 9-12 treatments being needed compared to 5-6.

Laser Hair Reduction
Our Q Switched 1064nm Laser wavelength is ideal for dark skin types with dark fine hair. Normally fine hair on dark skin cannot be treated with Laser or IPL due to the increased risk of burns, however this type of hair can successfully be reduced by 45%. We recommend 8-12 treatments at monthly intervals along with maintenance treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions
During the IPL and Laser hair removal treatments you will experience an intense localised elastic band flick and a warm sensation. Due to the treatment being a light based therapy to penetrate the skin, you will notice bright coloured flashing pulses.
Mild localised redness and follicular swelling may be experienced, however this will subside within in a few hours. If you have obvious freckles and pigmentation on the area being treated, the light based therapy can also be attracted to this pigment and temporarily make it look darker, however over time this will lighten and even up your skin tone.
IPL, like Laser, hair removal intervals depend on the area being treated. For facial hair we recommend treatments every 6 to 8 weeks and for body areas every 10 to 12 weeks is ideal.
Treatments performed too closely together will result in more treatments overall being needed to acheive permanent results. Having body areas treated at monthly intervals is a waste of your time and money. Successful and permanent results relies on client patience and therapist knowledge.
Our advanced IPL and Laser systems allow for darker skin types to successfully treat their unwanted hair facial and body. For clients with fair coloured hair, as long as the hair shaft and bulb has medium to dark pigment you are suitable to have IPL or Laser hair reduction.
IPL/Laser hair reduction does not work on hairs that are grey, red or blonde (Electrolysis is then advised). IPL/Laser is not suitable for pregnant women, cancer patients undergoing treatment, autoimmune disorders or anyone that suffers from epilepsy.
Make sure you do not wax, pluck, epilate the hair you want treated IPL/Laser for at least 4 weeks prior to your session. Shave the entire area thoroughly so that your skin is prepped and ready to go for the hair removal treatment, however you do not need to do this for Q Switch laser. Do not use fake tan or expose your skin to the sun over the course of your treatments.
Every individual will need to be assessed and advised on their particular treatment program as IPL hair reduction works best on a lighter skin type with dark hair. On average most clients will need 4 to 5 treatments.
Fine, light brown hairs against a darker skin type will need more sessions to get the desirable results and an adequate permanent reduction.
Clients who have hormonal imbalances, such as PCOS or hirsutism will require additional treatments, along with maintenance treatments.
Male clients usually require 2 extra sessions also.
Don’t trust your skin with just anyone! When choosing a cosmetic treatment - always look for someone who is experienced with relevant training and a successful reputation. Do not base decisions regarding laser treatments, solely on price, as a poorly performed treatment will cost you more in the long run. At best you will experience little to no results and worst case you may end up with permanent scarring. Laser treatments are serious and need to be treated as such. All our machines have been TGA and FDA approved and only qualified Cosmetic Dermal Therapists operate this equipment.
