Permanently reduce hair growth on the face
At Radiance Skin Clinic, Woodstock, Oxfordshire
Unwanted facial hair can be embarrassing and unsightly, but Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment can permanently reduce hair growth in the treated area. It works by using intense bursts of light energy to target hair follicles in the skin. This energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair and heats the follicle to a point where affects its ability to grow more hair.
Working at its best on darker hair colours, we can successfully and permanently reduce hair growth in the treated area. A full course of IPL hair reduction is recommended because this treatment is only effective on actively growing hair, which occurs in cycles. Around one third of hair can be treated at a time, so repeat treatments are often necessary.
- IPL hair reduction is performed by our qualified aesthetic physician
- Permanently reduces hair growth in the target area
- Effective for those suffering symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Treatment is suitable for both men and women
One of the many benefits of IPL hair reduction is that there is no need to ‘save up’ your hair growth and limit your clothing or lifestyle choices. Because this treatment only works on growing hair follicles, we’d recommend shaving the treatment area 2-3 days before your appointment to ensure there are actively growing hairs.
