To achieve long lasting or permanent hair reduction, we destroy the hair follicle from which individual hairs grow. Well controlled pulses of light penetrate the upper skin layer
and are absorbed by one of the body’s own natural chemicals – melanin – in the hair contained in the follicle.
Hair grows in three different cycles and the Permanent Hair Reduction can only successfully treat hair during its growth stage.
Therefore it is often necessary to undergo a course of 3-6 treatments ensuring that you leave at least 6-8 weeks between each session initially, and then only repeat as and when the hair returns.
IPL treatments can also ease redness and can also permanently reduce scarring caused by acne. Our acne clearance treatments specifically target the bacteria responsible for causing the acne to develop, thus actively reducing the amount of acne present on the skin.

Tattoos are of two main types: the Indian ink, amateur tattoo or the multi-coloured, professional tattoo.
Single-colour tattoos usually respond best to laser tattoo removal.
Multi-coloured, professional tattoos are much more difficult to eradicate completely.
Black, blue, red and green colours in the tattoo respond best to treatment, but yellow and purple pigment can be more difficult.
Green and red coloured tattoos will require different lasers for successful treatment.Your tattoo will be assessed, and, in the majority of cases, laser tattoo removal will be recommended.

By using this device, more specific lesions can be located, such as freckles and age spots.
