IPL Hair Removal vs Shaving & Waxing

Traditional hair removal treatments such as shaving, waxing and epilating creams are all temporary measures to get rid of unwanted body hair. They may provide a solution to body hair short-term but long-term, surely our time could be spent better elsewhere? Thankfully Venus Versa has created a handpiece that can remove short and prickly’s forever!

What is IPL Laser Hair Removal?

IPL Laser Hair Removal is a non-invasive way to remove unwanted body hair from just about every part of the body. No more embarrassing moments at the swimming pool when you have forgotten to shave your bits! The Venus Versa uses advanced technology to target the hair follicle beneath the skin’s surface. During the course of treatment, this significantly reduces hair growth, offering long-lasting results.

Venus Versa IPL Laser is one of the most advanced hair removal devices on the market. It is able to reach multiple areas of the face and body and includes a built-in cooling feature that can be used on intimate and sensitive areas such as the bikini line, giving maximum comfort throughout treatment.

Once you have completed a course of Venus Versa IPL Laser treatment you will never need to shave again, as the hair follicles will become permanently destroyed. No more shaving, waxing, or hair removal creams! Sound good to you? This September we have an offer on Venus Versa IPL Hair Removal to help you achieve smooth, soft, hair-free skin.

How Does Venus Versa IPL Laser Hair Removal Work?

Venus Versa Hair Removal utilizes IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to reduce hair growth. Short wavelengths of light are emitted into the targeted treatment areas. Over the course of treatments, hair follicles grow at different stages and this treatment is particularly good for reducing the risk of ingrowing hairs.

How Long Does IPL Take?

Depending on what area of the body is being treated. In a smaller area, like armpits, it may only take as little as 15-30 minutes. A larger area, like two full legs, may take up to 60 minutes. So it’s relatively quick, easy and painless, with no downtime. You can return to your daily schedule or work immediately after your treatment.

How Many Sessions Will I need?

Each client is different and hair grows differently for everyone. We recommend 6-10 treatments per area, every 4-8 weeks apart to achieve permanent results.

Where Can IPL Laser Be Used?

Laser Hair removal can be done on just about any part of the body except the eyes.

  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Brazilian
  • Bikini
  • Arms
  • Back of the neck
  • Head
  • Feet
  • Hands

Preparing For IPL Laser Hair Removal

Before you embark on a course of IPL Hair Removal, it is important that you must STOP shaving, plucking and waxing for 6 weeks prior to your treatment. Skin must also be at its natural melanin levels during treatment, therefore patients must avoid tanning prior to treatment. Once you have had your initial consultation with one of our advanced aesthetic practitioners, they will explain the process, how many treatments are required, and the necessary steps before and after each treatment. It is important to follow your practitioner’s advice in order to avoid any side effects during the treatment, resulting in the most effective results.
