It’s important for us to provide an assessment of your general medical condition; hair and skin to ensure you’re suitable for permanent hair removal. IPL lasers do not work well on blonde, red or grey hair as there may not be enough pigment for the laser to ‘find’ the follicle in order to work effectively.
We can answer any questions you have regarding the treatment; make sure you have all the relevant information you need to make an informed decision and understand how the laser works. If you are taking any medications, you must bring in the name of these during your patch test, and let your therapist know if you start taking any new medications during the treatment.
We also perform a patch test which allows us to test your skin for any sensitivity from the laser and also will ensure you are a suitable candidate for treatment.
