Excessive body hair can be a problem. Women frequently experience this condition on the face, especially the upper lip or eyebrow area, on the bikini area, under the arms or on the legs. Shaving, plucking, waxing and depilatory creams provide temporary fixes that are inconvenient, irritating, messy and only temporary.
Innovative, light-based IPL laser hair removal devices have revolutionised the treatment of unwanted hair, offering gentle, effective and convenient solutions for both men and women. IPL laser hair removal systems use targeted flashes of light to block the regrowth potential of the hair follicle. These treatments do not damage surrounding tissue and each device targets numerous hair follicles simultaneously, allowing for the treatment of large areas quickly and effectively.
The length of an individual IPL laser hair removal treatment varies according to the size of the area being treated. The number of treatments required depends on several factors related to specific kinds of hair and skin. It is important to understand that hairs in an active growth phase (anagen) are most affected by treatments. Since all hairs are not in this phase at the same time, several treatments are necessary to achieve the best results. At Cosmeticare we will offer you a customised treatment programme to achieve the results you desire.
The treatment may cause some minor discomfort — patients often describe it as a slight tingling or compare it to a pinch or the sting of a snapped rubber band. Most patients tolerate the procedure well; topical anesthesia is rarely required, but may be an option when treating more sensitive areas.
The appearance of the treated area immediately following an IPL laser hair removal session will vary from patient to patient, though side effects are rare. Any swelling or redness at the treatment site typically goes away within a couple hours, and most people are able to return to normal activity immediately.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) Photo-rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that erases skin damage without disruption of the skin's surface, and therefore requires no'downtime'. IPL can simultaneously treat a range of facial blemishes safely and effectively, such as
- Broken Capillaries
- Thread Veins
- Skin Discolouration
- Age Spots
- Mottled Pigmentation
- Symptoms of Rosacea
IPL technology improves both the superficial and deeper skin layers. After a series of 4 or 5 treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unsightly veins and unwanted pigmentation and the appearance of a smoother, revitalised skin. The same treatment can be used effectively on the face, the neck, the chest, and the hands.
