Lasers and IPL are both permanent ways to reduce your hair, as they target the hair pigment structure to prevent growth. However, these methods are not the same.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses a broad spectrum of light with multiple wavelengths, while laser technology is monochromatic and concentrated into a beam.
How to prepare for IPL
If you regularly shave the area being treated, we recommend getting a wax 3-4 weeks prior to your IPL treatment. Doing this means that we are treating the hair during its ‘active’ growth phase for a more effective treatment.
On the day before, thoroughly shave the area being treated and do not apply perfumes, deodorants, fake tan, body lotion or any potential irritants on the area on the day of treatment.
