Achieve Smooth, Hair-Free Legs with IPL Treatment

Achieve Smooth, Hair-Free Legs with IPL Treatment

If you’re tired of constantly shaving, waxing, or dealing with painful ingrown hairs, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) might be the solution you’ve been looking for. IPL is a light-based method of hair reduction, similar to laser treatment, that can significantly minimise hair growth with a series of treatments. In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits, suitability, pre-treatment preparation, and post-treatment aftercare of IPL for leg hair reduction.

Benefits of IPL Treatment

  1. Gradually Reduces Hair Growth With consistent IPL sessions, hair growth on your legs will be significantly reduced. The light energy from the IPL device targets hair follicles, damaging them to inhibit future growth.
  2. Can Even the Skin Tone IPL treatment can also help to even out your skin tone by reducing the appearance of blemishes and pigmentation, giving your legs a smoother look.
  3. Treats and Prevents Ingrown Hair IPL is highly effective in treating and preventing ingrown hairs. By reducing the density and thickness of hair, IPL minimises the likelihood of hair growing back into the skin.
  4. Gentle on the Skin Unlike some hair removal methods that can irritate the skin, IPL is gentle and causes minimal discomfort. Most people experience a sensation similar to a mild snap of a rubber band.

Who is Suitable for IPL?

IPL treatment is most effective for individuals with brown and black hair. IPL treatment is not suitable for blonde, red or grey hair.

Pre-Treatment Preparation

To ensure the best results and minimise any potential side effects, follow these pre-treatment preparation steps:

  1. Book a Consultation If it’s your first time considering IPL treatment, schedule a consultation at our clinic. Our experts will assess your skin and hair type and discuss your treatment plan.
  2. Shave the Area Shave the area one day prior to treatment. This helps the IPL energy to reach the hair follicles more effectively.
  3. Avoid Excess Sun Exposure Minimise sun exposure and avoid tanning beds before your treatment to prevent skin irritation and potential pigmentation changes.
  4. Avoid Self-Tanning Products Refrain from using self-tanning products before your session, as these can interfere with the effectiveness of the treatment.
  5. Avoid Strong Products Avoid using strong skincare products, including peels and retinol, prior to your IPL treatment to prevent skin sensitivity.

Post-Treatment Aftercare

Proper aftercare is crucial to maximise the benefits of your IPL treatment and ensure your skin heals well:

  1. Apply Soothing Cream After your session, apply a soothing cream to cool the skin. We recommend Exel Moisturising Lotion with Green Tea and Cucumber for its calming and hydrating properties.
  2. Continue Shaving if Needed Since hair does not fall out immediately after treatment, you can continue to shave between sessions. However, avoid waxing or plucking, as these methods can disrupt the IPL process.
  3. Protect Your Skin Continue to avoid excessive sun exposure and apply sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage.

IPL treatment is a fantastic option for those seeking a long-term solution to unwanted leg hair and ingrown hairs. With its numerous benefits, gentle approach, and suitability for various skin tones, IPL can help you achieve the smooth, hair-free legs you desire.
