Facial and Body Hair
IPL Laser hair reduction can be used to treat hair growth on most areas of the body. The light emitted from our medical grade machines; Lumenis is attracted to the pigment within the hair. The light is absorbed by the hair follicle and is heated to a point where the hair follicle is damaged.
Studies have shown that the best results are achieved on a client who has dark hair and fair skin. Patients with darker skin types and those with fairer hair can receive treatments but will require additional treatments. Blonde, red, grey, white hairs cannot be detected by the light due to their lack of pigment.
At Karen Bowen Dermal Therapist we pride ourselves on using the highest quality medical grade equipment that is available on the market, Lumeins. Lumenis are a pioneer in the industry and lead the way in providing outstanding results with IPL and Laser treatments.
Our clinic follows a strict protocol that all new clients must undergo a “test patch” prior to receiving a full treatment.
This ensures the safety and comfort of our clients. At the time of your test patch Karen Bowen and her team of therapists will be able to discuss with you in greater depth how many treatments will be required to achieve the desired result, and the time frame between each session.
