IPL is short for Intense Pulsed Light. The machine consists of a special xenon flash lamp, which is an extremely bright light source. The IPL machine is used for a range of skin treatments to reduce or eliminate unwanted hair, red birth marks, pigmented lesions and other blemishes.

RF is short for Radio Frequency. These waves of electromagnetic energy targets the skin and the layers underneath that contain fats and collagen.

The results achieved with this two technoligies combined are far superior for all hair types whilst significantly reducing any discomfort feeling for the patient.

IPL machines work best at removing hair when the hair is in a phase of active growth.

It removes hair by sending out high-energy light pulses. There are actually two beams of light, one red and the other yellow which acting together result in both the existing hair and the follicles where the hair grows.

However not all hair in the area of treatment will be in this phase at any point in time. It is therefore best to spread IPL treatments out over several weeks.

This is to make sure that hair which isn’t treated in one session is affected in the next. The way hair grows can be different for each individual, so its best to adjust the treatment to suit each person's needs.
