IPL Hair Reduction - FAQs

How should I prepare? Please shave the area that is being treated, 3 days prior to your appointment.

Is it safe? Yes, IPL is a safe and effective way to reduce hair growth, some may experience mild redness and swelling on the area treated which will subside within 24 hours There is no downtime with this treatment.

How does it work? IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is light-based technology which targets the hair pigment for effective hair reduction. At SkinFitness we use the latest technology which incorporates a unique cooling system on the handpiece to provide the maximum comfort and protection with each pulse light making the treatment virtually pain free.

How often does one come back for treatment? We recommend a course of 6 sessions with a 4 to 6 weeks interval between each session.

Post-treatment care Avoid sunbathing or sauna for 24hrs after treatment. No waxing, tweezing or depilating of your hair as IPL targets the root of your hair follicle which requires the hair to fall out as part of the natural hair growth process. Shaving, however, can continue during the IPL treatments to maintain a hair free look.

Things to avoid for 24 hours post treatment:

No swimming or sunbathing

No tight clothing

No scrubbing or rubbing on the treated area

No applications of deodorant or antiperspirant on the treated area

No hot bathing
