IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a light based therapy that, when used for hair reduction, is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and is converted into heat, damaging the follicle, making it unable to support further hair growth. The number of treatments required for permanent hair reduction will vary but you should expect to see significant results within 6 treatments. Currently, this service is only available at Allertons Leeds (Queens Arcade).
An alternative to laser hair removal with no downtime, and a permanent solution unlike waxing, Allertons IPL is a safe, quick, comfortable and high-tech solution to unwanted body hair. Read in more detail Here.
