How does it work?
The SHR light is applied to the skin in a very quick on off action covering all of the problem area. The hair MUST be darker than your skin, as the light is attracted to the colour of your hair, which heats up the hair follicle and kills off the blood supply and cells that feed the hair thus destroying it. As your hair grows in different stages we need to complete a course of treatment to capture as many hairs as possible.

I find it incredible that by using light (heat) you can reduce the amount of unwanted hair so easily and painlessly. After all the years of waxing, shaving and plucking we now have an incredible solution – who wants underarm hair anyway?— Rachel
IPL has changed my life! I was so embarrassed to have excess facial hair, but the girls at SKIN lounge made me feel at ease. I wish I did it years ago.— Elaine
Do I need a course?
Yes, working against hormones is not easy! The average course of treatment is 8 sessions in each area.
Is it safe?
Very, IPL has been used for years and years and has successfully and safely treated unwanted hair without causing any damage to the skin. However like most treatments it has some medical limitations. A free consultation is recommended if you have any additional questions or would like further advice as to whether this is the right treatment for you.
What does it feel like?
This treatment can feel hot but each flash of light lasts less than a second so the sensation quickly subsides.
Do I need a patch test?
Yes, we recommend that you have a patch test and full consultation 1 week before your first treatment.
How often do I need my treatments?
For legs it’s 8 week intervals, bikini and underarm 6 week intervals and face 4 week intervals.
How do I get rid of my unwanted hair between treatments?
You can shave the hair before treatment and as often as you like 4 days after treatment. Shaving is the only recommended method of hair removal during your IPL course as this does not stimulate the hair growth.
Can I sunbathe while having IPL?
With this latest generation of IPL (SHR) you can still go on your sunny holidays without putting a pause on your treatment. We would still recommend that fake tan is not used around the time of your treatment.
Is there any age restrictions?
We have age restrictions on all of our treatments at SKIN Lounge due safety reasons and the body constantly changing. IPL Hair Removal requires a minimum age of 18 years old.
