This treatment destroys germ cells responsible for hair growth. With this treatment, light is directed at the hair and is absorbed by dark pigment, resulting in the destruction of the hair follicle. Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in the bulb and bulge.

The latest treatment
Our Permanent Hair Reduction treatments use the very latest Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to provide fast, not invasive hair removal for most skin types and hair colors. The Accuralight IPL machine can treat most areas of the body in both men and women, including the face. It treats a much larger area of skin per light pulse than other laser hair removal methods, which means treatments can be faster and cheaper. In a vast majority of cases a series of treatments will permanently reduce the unwanted hair from the target area. Our methods are proven and safe. All hair removal is performed by our haighly trained and certified staff who are committed to providing you with the very highest levels of service. We offer free consultations to answer any questions you may have.
How it works
IPL works best at removing hair when it’s in the active growth phase. But not all the hair in the treatment area will be in this phase at any given time. So we spread our IPL treatments out over a period of time. This is to make sure that hair which isn’t treated in one session is affected in the next. The way hair grows is slightly different for everyone, so we tailor our treatment to suit you. The Accuralight IPL has a unique Multi Phase Pulse which is designed to provide more efficient destruction of hair follicles than a standard IPL. It removes hair by sending out high-energy light pulses.
Your initial consultation
If you decide you want to find out more, the next step is to come in for a consultation. This is your opportunity to meet one of our highly trained laser nurses, ask them any questions you might have and discuss what you want to achieve from your hair removal treatments. The laser-trained nurse will determine your skin type and the kind of hair you have and make sure the IPL technique is right for you. Then they’ll create a treatment programme tailored specifically to your needs. A ‘patch test’ will also be performed. This is to determine how sensitive your skin is to the treatment and also to establish the right IPL energy settings. You will also be advised not to expose the target area to the sun or use sun beds for at least four weeks before your treatment. At this consultation we’ll check some basic details and explain a few simple requirements. For instance, if you’re having hair removed from the bikini line or armpit, we’ll ask you to wear white underwear, as coloured underwear can be affected by the IPL light energy. We’ll also ask you to sign a consent form to show that you agree to the procedure and understand what it involves. If you decide to go ahead with the treatment, we’ll arrange an appointment for you at a suitable time. If at any stage you have any questions, we’ll do our best to answer them and help in any way we can.
Your treatment program
The hair removal procedure itself is very straightforward. You’ll lie on a treatment table and make yourself comfortable. As a safety measure, you’ll be asked to wear some eye protection, which the Laser Specialist will also wear. The Certified Laser Specialist runs the Accuralight IPL treatment head, a small handheld unit, slowly over the specified area. You might feel a slight burning and tingling sensation. Sometimes the skin swells or reddens slightly, depending on which part of your body is being treated. During the procedure we’ll apply cold air to the area to minimize any discomfort. Treatment times vary depending on the person and the area being treated. It can be as brief as ten minutes, depending on what treatment you’re having.
Will I need more than one treatment session?
Commonly, six to twelve treatment sessions are needed to provide a permanent reduction of hair growth. This is because at any given time some of the follicles in the treatment area won’t be in the growth phase. We spread our treatments out to make sure that hair that isn’t treated in one session is affected in the next. Facial hair tends to be more stubborn and may need ten to twelve treatment sessions or occasionally more in very resistant cases. The gap between sessions is usually four weeks for facial areas and six to eight weeks for body areas. The number of hair removal sessions depends on various factors, including where the hair is, how thick it is and also your particular skin type and hair colour. For the best results we recommend that you complete the full series of treatment sessions. Our Certified Laser Technicians can answer all your questions and offer support. If at any time you want to discuss any part of the hair removal programme, please give us a call.
After the procedure
For the first few days after your treatment you should apply aloe vera gel to soothe the affected area. Also, a sun-cream of at least SPF30 should be applied to exposed treated areas every day for at least four weeks, regardless of the weather. You shouldn’t expose the treated area to the sun or use sun beds for at least four weeks before and after treatment.

Are there any risks?
There may be some redness and swelling after the treatment but this usually only lasts one or two days. Sometimes there can be an increase or loss of pigmentation (colouring) in the skin. In a very small number of cases the skin’s texture may change slightly. IPL very rarely causes scarring.
Prices vary depending on the area to be treated.
