1. How long will it take to see hair reduction and complete hair removal results? Am I suitable for this treatment?
The number of treatments required to remove hair permanently differs from person to person and it depends on:
- the color of your skin
- the pigment of your skin
- the area to be treated
We want you to have a clear understanding as this is important. The less pigment in the skin & more pigment in the hair, the more you will see visible result. We would not recommend anyone with dark skin, tattoos, blonde, red or grey hair to go for this IPL device as you may end up bruising yourself and cause pain in your skin. Please consider this product very carefully. You can check your skin tone and hair color in the chart below:
Small areas such as face and underarms may take 5 to 6 sessions, with 30 days for skin recovery, to see results. Again, individual results may vary, some will be able to see visible hair reduction or permanent hair removed at the 2nd or 3rd session, while others may take an average of 5 - 6 sessions, depending your skin color and the pigment of your hair.
For larger areas such as back, bikini line, arms, legs and privates, it may take up to 8 weeks for hairs to be completely removed.
2. Is this only suitable for women? Which part of the body can I use the device at?
Our IPL device is suitable for anyone who has hair removal needs. You can choose to use the device at face, back, underarms, bikini line, arms, legs and privates.
3. What happens after my treatment?
Your skin may become lighter or darker, which is usually temporary and will go away in about 2 days. Do not expose your skin to the sun after your treatment for up to 6 weeks.
