What you need to know

What is IPL?

We don't want to get to technical but IPL or Intense Pulse Light is a visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light, that targets structures in the skin (e.g. melanin in hair, or oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels) for destruction by heat.

Why do we use ALMA technology?

This is an easy one to answer for you. We are focused on your skin results and will therefore only use the best available on the market. ALMA is the leader in SHR or pain free IPL technology. As the developer of the technology ALMA devices are best designed to maximise results and patient comfort.

How many treatments will I need?

Yes, I know you want an easy answer to this one as well. But you are unique!! The number of treatments depends on a range of factors including hair colour, skin type, customer expectation and commitment. Typically we recommend 6-10 treatments for hair removal and 5-6 treatments for skin rejuvenation.

Do I need to have a test patch?

Yes, all customers need to have a test patch and wait 24 to 48 hours before your first full treatment. A test patch is critical to protect you, your skin and us from any adverse reactions.
