With so many different places that offer IPL as hair removal option, we thought we'd give you the low down on what you need to know, and what you should look out for when considering IPL.
Why do I need more than one appointment?
IPL doesn't automatically make you silky smooth after your first appointment. It can take between six to eight sessions or more depending on your skin to see phenomenal results.
How long will it take?
Your appointment can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. It all depends on the area you're having treated. Underarms and bikini lines tend to be quick treatments, but other areas like the legs or back can take a little longer.
I saw a cheap online deal for IPL, should I buy it?
As IPL is not regulated in New Zealand, be careful. Anyone could potentially buy a machine and set up a shop in a spare room or garage. It's important to remember not all IPL machines are created equal and many operators are not properly trained. It's better to go to someone you trust.
What could go wrong?
Results vary depending on the skin. If your operator is not well trained or the machine isn't the best quality, you could potentially be burnt or risk getting an ineffective treatment and wasting your money.
Is IPL safe at Embrayce Beauty and Medi Spa?
At Embrayce our team of therapists are fully trained and qualified. We have also invested in getting the latest technology to make it as effective and painfree as possible.
What to do at home after IPL?
Shaving is fine, but please resist the urge to tweeze. Pulling out the hair follicle after IPL hinders the process. Your skin will also be sensitive, even if it doesn't feel like it. protect it as much as possible by ensuring you wear sunscreen. We provide you with a comprehensive pre and post care form, when you get IPL through us to ensure you're doing everything right.
Before you jump into any clinic, do your homework and don't decide purely on price. If you'd like more information, please contact us, we're happy to help!
