Unwanted hair is no longer a problem
There are many options to remove unwanted hair and modern IPL and laser equipment has been designed for the efficient and effective long-term reduction of hair growth. Permanent hair reduction is now both efficient and relatively pain free. Most people require approximately 8 treatments.
There are a number of factors that will determine which treatment is best for you; they include the location of the unwanted hair, coarseness, hair colour and skin colour. The practitioner you choose will consider your individual circumstances, including your budget and time frame, and recommend the most appropriate plan for you.
The procedures are fast and there is generally no down time. One of the unique features that Spectrum Certified Practitioner offers is the opportunity of predictable treatment of even dark skin types, which historically have been very problematic. The launch of latest technology SHR brings speed and excellent comfort to treatments, making full body hair reduction fast and effective.
Recent sun exposure, use of Roaccutane within 6 month of treatment, eczema, dermatitis and a few other indications will prevent treatment, so ensure you consult thoroughly with your chosen practitioner prior to any treatment.
Your practitioner is likely to recommend 5 or more sessions every 6-10 weeks. Post treatment effects usually include redness and inflammation of the skin. Complications generally resolve without intervention within 24 hours, however complications such as persistent redness, burns or blisters, hyperpigmentation [no colour in skin] hyperpigmentation [skin bronzing] should be referred back to the treating practitioner for treatment.
Your practitioner will consult you before treatment taking a history of health and skin, and may photograph the area. They will wear gloves and the area will be thoroughly cleaned prior to treatment and after treatment the area may be treated with a soothing gel or cream. You and the therapist will wear eye protection and you may use a topical anaesthetic cream prior to treatment starting.
