Why Choose Equinox Medical IPL Hair Removal?
More advanced than Lasers, our medical IPL is the technology proven to treat unwanted hair safely on any hair type -very white to very black, even red, blonde and grey, and any skin type 1 to 5.
At Equinox we have Ariane which is the most advanced IPL machine on the market, manufactured and developed by doctors and scientists. It’s European designed and manufactured unlike most other machines which are made in China or Korea. There are three main benefits of Ariane’s advanced technology. It is safer, less painful and more successful than any other machine on the market.
How Does the Procedure Work?
IPL hair removal is probably the best option for permanent hair reduction. IPL’s unique design allows customised treatments according to the colour, texture and location of hair growth. Any hair – black, brown, red, blonde, white and grey hair can be treated effectively with new patented technology from Ariane.
Pulses of intense lamp light penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the melanin in the hair. The absorption heats the hair shaft and the energy is transmitted to the hair follicle. This results in the follicle being heated to a temperature of 70°C for a millisecond. The hair follicles are destroyed by each flash; the hairs then fall out in two to three weeks. All without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Our experienced dermal therapists will advise the amount and frequency of treatments you require.
Can All Hair Colours Be Treated?
IPL’s unique design offers you customised treatments according to your hair colour, texture and body location. Any hair (black, brown, red, grey, white and even blonde) can be treated effectively. Since these hair colours have no melanin, IPL doesn’t work. However, the Ariane has a separate, new patented hand piece for this type of hair that targets the haemoglobin instead of the melanin. We wax the area to be treated beforehand to increase the blood flow for a more successful treatment.
Where Can Medical IPL Hair Removal be Used?
Any areas of the face and body can be treated with pulse light.
What Are The Side Effects?
In most cases, there are no visible effects. Therefore, the treatment does not interfere with normal activities. Hair is detached from its nourishment, but it still remains in its sheath during the renewal of the epidermis (peeling). A light exfoliation 10 to 15 days after the session can speed up the rate at which the hair falls out.
What Is The Down Time And After Care Following Medical IPL Hair Removal?
No sun tanning or sun beds for 1 week before and after your treatment. Sun tanning can result in irregular pigmentation occurring in the treated areas. We highly recommend applying Dr Aspect Post Laser Gel on the areas to reduce any irritation. Always apply good quality SPF 30+ daily to avoid irregular pigmentation issues.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
Everyone is different and several (an average of 6) sessions may be needed. This is because each of the hairs on your body goes through three stages in its lifecycle, and you can only neutralise a hair in the active phase. At any one time only a maximum of 20% of the hairs on your body are in that phase, which is why you need at least 6 treatments.
Once you’ve completed the treatment cycle you can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin with only an occasional maintenance treatment. Compare that to the cost of a lifetime of waxing. After that, only one or two annual maintenance sessions are recommended.
Please book a complimentary consultation with one of our IPL specialists to evaluate your skin and hair, to have a patch test, estimate the required number of treatments and to provide the instructions for before and after the procedure.
All our Permanent Hair Reduction treatments are performed by qualified, certified and experienced IPL Technicians.
