Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal method that was invented more than 100 years ago to remove irritating in-grown eyelash hairs. This method has definitely stood the test of time as even in today's era where IPL hair removal has fastly taken over, we find electrolysis still has it's place for hormonal hair and fair hair, which are both NOT conducive for IPL hair removal. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis hair removal, including the eyebrows, face, thighs, abdomen, breasts, and legs.
There are no permanent side effect. Generally the initial reaction is a slight reddening of the skin during or immediately after treatment, and the skin will hive a little too. This will last anywhere from 1-5 hours depending from person to person. Some clients like to take an antihistamine before or after the treatment.
Electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with a chemical and heat energy. A fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle at the surface of the skin. The loose hair is then removed with tweezers.
For Best results, we recommend a series of treatments over 12-24 months.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is the latest technology in Permanent Hair Reduction and Skin Rejuvenation, combating a variety of skin conditions including the signs of ageing. IPL is well proven to offer a safe and non invasive solution to clients and delivers outstanding results customised to suit the client's hair, skin and sensitivity characterictics.
IPL targets the pigment located in the hair follicle. The light penetrates the skin and the pigment absorbs the light. The light energy is then converted into heat resulting in thermal damage to the hair follicle. This thermal damage causes permanent destruction of the hair & it's follicle with no damage to the surrounding tissue.
Shaving, waxing, tweezing and hair removal creams have been replaced by permanent hair reduction. In a flash, you can safely and affordably remove unwanted facial and body hair from all areas in minutes, with results from your first session. IPL works the best on dark hairs. Optimal results are gained through a series of treatments 3 to 4 weeks apart.
We use IPL for facial rejuvenation which delivers light energy into the skin. This then creates a wound healing process within the skin.
The skin automatically creates more fibroblast cells which help to stimulate your collagen and heal the skin. Exactly what we want!
The collagen is like the mattress on your bed. When you buy a new mattress it's firmer! It's exactly the same, the collagen sits up more and creates a firmer and softer appearance, the texture is fantastic. It is a safe and cost effective method for skin rejuvenation and gives you a clearer, firmer, younger, and smoother-looking skin.
As a bonus, apart from stimulating the collagen, IPL also treats pigmentation/sunspots and broken capillaries; the collagen will be stimulated by 42% in just one treatment! For optimal results we recommend a series of Photo Rejuvenation treatments 3 to 4 weeks apart.
