Hair Reduction (IPL, & Waxing)

Shaving, waxing, tweezing, and hair removal creams are a thing of the past as hair can now be permanently reduced in a flash with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). This technology – as well as Q Switch YAG Laser – are also highly effective for treating a number of skin conditions such as pigmentation, rosacea and premature ageing. Q Switch is also the preferred, proven and safest method for tattoo removal (tattoo removal services will be available in the near future).

At Botanique Skin & Spa we use “E-Light” – the next level of technology, allowing for individual configuration to suit different skin and hair types. That means that there is a higher possibility of removing light gray and red hair permanently, normally not possible with IPL technology alone.

Your treating therapist holds a Graduate Certificate in IPL/Laser Therapies and is fully trained in the use of the machines.

Expected Hair Reduction

Hair growth is cyclical, as hair follicles go through resting and growing phases. Only follicles in the growth phase contain hair and are destroyed by the heat. Resting hair follicles need to enter the growth phase before they can be effectively destroyed. This is why it is necessary to repeat the removal treatment at intervals until all hair follicles have been through the growth phase.

Most people will have effective hair reduction with each treatment, with very little regrowth after the course of treatments is done.  Some will get complete hair reduction with no or minimal regrowth, while others will require a yearly maintenance treatment.  Any regrowth of hair will be weak, thin, and lighter in colour, due to the damaged hair follicles.
