Everything You Need to Know About IPL Hair Reduction

Everything You Need to Know About IPL Hair Reduction

If you’re considering IPL (intense pulsed light) hair reduction at All About You Beauty Boutique in Christchurch, it pays to study up. But we know you’re super busy and may not have the time, so here’s everything you need to know about IPL.

If you’re susceptible to ingrown hairs that aggravate your skin, it can help to eliminate this issue too. The options for hair removal and reduction are endless. From waxing to threading and shaving to tweezing (and all the weird stuff in between). However, IPL is one of the few options that offers a more permanent approach to getting rid of body hair long-term. At our Christchurch clinic, we specialise in providing high-quality IPL treatments that cater to your specific needs.

Just like with any procedure you’re doing to your body, it’s a good idea to thoroughly research the ins and outs and know the process before you start a course of IPL.  Because, while the end result will be fabulous, there are a few things to bear in mind and ways you can prep for the best IPL experience, wherever on your body you’re getting it done.

1. IPL Isn’t Painful
IPL sends pulses of light that are absorbed by the pigment in the hair. This energy converts to heat, damaging the hair follicle so it can’t produce a hair. At All About You Beauty Boutique, our IPL system includes a cooling handset, making the whole process infinitely more comfortable. We do use a gel during the treatment to ensure optimal light absorption and effectiveness. Our Christchurch clinic is equipped with the latest technology to ensure your IPL experience is as pleasant as possible.

2. Patience is a Virtue
IPL isn’t instant and you will require several treatments over the course of 18 months to 2 years to get the full result. You also must be really regular with your appointments. Hair follicles are all at different stages of their growth at any one time. Regular treatments ensure each one has a chance to get zapped. At our clinic, we schedule your sessions to maximise the effectiveness of your IPL treatments.

3. It’s a Pretty Quick Process
While the overall treatment period spans 18 months to 2 years, each session is relatively quick. Our cooling handset and gel application ensure the process is comfortable and efficient. Combined with our large head size, treatments are fast and virtually pain-free. You will have a consultation with your therapist before your IPL treatment so you have everything you need to know about IPL. Our clinic prioritises your comfort and convenience, ensuring that your IPL sessions fit seamlessly into your busy schedule.

Benefits of Choosing IPL at All About You Beauty Boutique
Choosing IPL hair reduction at All About You Beauty Boutique comes with numerous benefits. Not only does IPL offer a more permanent solution to unwanted hair, but our advanced technology and skilled therapists ensure optimal results. We focus on delivering personalised treatments that cater to your unique skin and hair type, providing a tailored experience that meets your individual needs.

Preparing for Your IPL Treatment
Preparation is key to achieving the best results from your IPL treatment. Prior to your appointment, it’s important to avoid sun exposure and tanning, as this can affect the effectiveness of the treatment. Additionally, make sure to shave the area being treated a day before your session. Our  therapists at All About You Beauty Boutique will provide you with detailed instructions during your consultation to ensure you’re fully prepared.

Aftercare and Maintenance
Post-treatment care is crucial for maintaining the results of your IPL hair reduction. Avoid sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin. It’s also important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your therapist to promote healing and optimise results. At our clinic, we’re dedicated to supporting you throughout your IPL journey, providing guidance and advice every step of the way.
