How does IPL hair removal work?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a non-invasive, light-based technology used to permanently reduce unwanted hair growth by penetrating the skin and disabling the hair follicle. This safe, quick and effective solution can be used to remove hair from the face and body and is customised to your individual hair colour and texture to ensure optimal results. During the IPL hair removal procedure, a cool gel is rubbed onto your skin before light pulses are applied from the IPL device.
Before getting IPL:
- We will examine your skin and let you know what to expect
- Let us know if you have any skin conditions that might affect healing after your treatment, such as inflammatory acne or eczema
- We may recommend that you avoid certain activities, medications and other products for two weeks prior your procedure
Following IPL hair removal, you should avoid:
- direct sunlight
- tanning beds
- chemical peels
- collagen injections
- medications that increase your bleeding risk, such as aspirin and ibuprofen
- creams or other products that contain vitamin A, such as RetinA, or glycolic acid
Following pre- and post-treatment care guidelines will help optimise your results. Your dermal therapist will walk you through any contraindications or side-effects that might impact you.
- If not performed safely and correctly by an experienced and trained clinician, IPL hair removal can results in certain adverse effects like permanent scarring, burns, eye damage, pigmentation, infection, blisters, and increased hair growth.

Frequently asked questions
What happens during an IPL treatment? Does IPL hurt?
You will need to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes. The pulses might sting your skin; it may feel like snaps from a rubber band.
Depending on which part of your body is being treated and how large the area is, the treatment should take 20 to 30 minutes.
Is there any downtime after IPL hair removal?
You should be able to return to regular activities straight away. The treated area will be red and sensitive for a few hours, similar to a sunburn. Your skin will continue to be sensitive for a couple of days and you may need to avoid hot water until it heals.
Does IPL remove hair permanently?
Yes, IPL is a permanent solution to remove unwanted hair forever.
Does IPL work on pubic hair?
Yes, you can use IPL to remove pubic hair and smooth our your bikini area. As this hair is thicker and darker, it may take additional treatments.
How many IPL sessions do I need?
You may need six to 12 treatments spaced about one month apart to let your skin heal in between. IPL works better on thick, dark hair than on fine, light hair.
