IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

IPL Hair Removal

Fed up with waxing and shaving? Intense pulsed light or IPL hair removal provides a quick and painless solution to unwanted hair with a permanent reduction in hair growth that simply can’t be achieved with conventional methods.

Removal of hair using IPL works by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle with quick pulses of light. This light energy converts to heat within the follow down and be unable to produce a new hair. This process is most effective in the ‘anagen’ phase of hair growth. Approximately 30% of hairs are in this stage of growth at any one time therefore, to achieve the most permanent results a course of treatments is required.

No IPL or laser system will ever achieve 100% permanent results. Normally 6-10 treatments may be needed. Any regrowth hair you do have will be softer and finer.

About our new treatment

As we age the skins ability to turn over new skin cells slows the dermis becomes visible through the thin and dry epidermis, appearing as fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation on our skin.

Skin retains moisture less efficiently, appears more tired and loses its youthful vibrancy. Sun damage and everyday facial movements like smiling or frowning cause faint lines to surface and deepen into wrinkles.

Our new medical IPL therapies aim to reverse the effects of ageing and give you back youthful looking skin free of blemishes, scarring and broken capillaries.

IPL is a light based therapy which uses beams of light to target structures in the skin such as pigmentation or broken capillaries and safely but effectively remove them.

Vascular Lesion Treatment

A very quick and effective solution for thread veins (face and body), rosacea and Campbell de Morgan spots/cherry angiomas.

How does this work?

When the pulsed light is absorbed by a spider vein, the light converts to heat and coagulates the vessel. Vessels may darken initially and then the body will remove the vessel over time.

  • Requires only 1-3 treatments at 2-3 weeks intervals.

Acne Treatment

IPL is revolutionising acne treatment and is very effective preventative treatment without unpleasant side effects. Skin will begin to look better from the very first treatment.

  • Destroys the bacteria preventing new spots occurring
  • Prevents over production of sebum and inflammation
  • Stimulates collage production improving skin texture
  • Quickly see noticeable difference in your skin
  • We recommend 3-4 treatments, 2-3 weeks apart

How does this work?

The intense pulsed light system releases yellow, green and red light that is emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow/green light destroys the P.Acnes bacteria that live in the skin and cause inflammation, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules.

What does it feel like?

You will feel a slight warm tingling sensation which is minimised by our specially designed cryo-handset which delivers a cooling effect to the skin before treatment.


As you may have seen before, we need to re-patch test all of our Lash Lift, extension, tinting, HD Brows and IPL clients if you have received the Covid 19 vaccination or have had the virus.

This is due to a change in your body’s tolerance to external products. A full consultation will also need to take place as this is deemed as a change in your medical history by our insurance company. I will be going in to the salon later today to get ready patch test packs for our clients booked in for the next month to collect from the community centre- With instructions. We will contact you for collection but please bare this in mind of you are looking to book an appointment too. We also need to re patch test anyone who has NOT been in for a treatment in the last 6 months regardless of vaccination OR if you had the virus. 

Please just ask if you need any further clarification, we know its confusing.

Many thanks. Verity x
