IPL Hair Removal and Skin Rejuvenation

IPL Skin Rejuvenation: a fresh start for your skin

Our IPL skin rejuvenation services strategically address a number of the most common skin concerns with just a handful of treatments.

Acne Management

IPL acne management targets acne-prone skin to reduce acne bacteria, breakouts and inflammation for a clearer, more balanced and healthier looking complexion.

Skin Clearing: Here at Hawthorne Beauty Room we are now able to offer IPL based acne management programs for their clients.  These unique treatments are designed to specifically slow the overall production of oil that leads to acne, thus dramatically reducing the chance of spots and minimising the appearance of pores in general.  Results will vary, but most people will see a significant improvement in skin condition.  Treatment should be spaced approximately 1 – 2 weeks apart.

Vascular Therapy

Spider veins, broken capillaries, red spots and rosacea can all be reduced and removed to offer clients an even, more uniform complexion.

Redness Reduction: Estimates indicate that unsightly veins are a common problem for more than 60% of the adult population!  Our trained clinicians can offer treatments which will reduce facial blemishes such as red flushing and red spots found on cheeks and around the nose with minimal downtime or risk.   A treatment cycle of 4 – 6 treatments spaced two to three weeks apart is usually required to reach your best possible outcome.

Pigmentation Correction

IPL pigmentation correction effectively fades and removes age spots, sunspots and discolouration to greatly improve overall skin tone, texture and radiance.

Skin tone correction: Whether born with them or acquired over the course of a lifetime, virtually everyone has one or more sunspots, freckles or skin discolouration they’d love to get rid of!  A doctor’s letter confirming that no skin cancers are present is usually required before commencing your treatment cycle and a series of 4 – 6 treatments spaced 4 week apart are required for optimal results.  Treatments areas such as backs of hands, forearms, décolletage and face will respond well.

Photo Rejuvenation

Everybody loves the sunshine!  Limited exposure is good for the soul and the immediate effects it has on the skin such as a tan and healthy glow are much desired.  However, in the long term, sun exposure decreases the production of collagen, which in turn causes damage to the skin making it feel wrinkled and coarse and looking red and tired.  Skin rejuvenation treatments will improve skin tone, texture, refine and refresh the skin by increasing the production of collagen in the skin.

What is IPL – Intense Pulsed Light Treatment?

IPL is a non-invasive light-based technology used to remove unwanted hair and improve many skin conditions.  Such conditions as age spots, sunspots, freckles, superficial capillaries and other unsightly discolouration of the skin can be eliminated using this technology.  IPL is also incredibly effective for those of us who suffer from facial redness and can even stimulate fibroblast causing increased collagen production in your skin for a more natural, lively, healthier looking you!

How does IPL work?

A fully trained therapist will apply a specially designed hand piece to your skin and generate an intense pulse of light which will be absorbed by targets in your skin.  The light delivered from the hand piece is delivered at high intensity during a very short period of time. It is this rapid discharge of light that provides the high energy levels required for each IPL treatment to be effective!

 

Hair Removal Treatments

IPL hair removal treatments are easy, painless and quick solution to unwanted hair and can be successfully used on the body or the face.  Usually a course of 6 – 8 treatments is required to achieve optimal result, but once you’ve completed your treatment cycle, you can look forward to a lifetime of smooth skin with only the occasional maintenance treatment.  Compare that to the cost and hassle of a lifetime of waxing.

SHR stands for Super Hair Reduction and is the latest breakthrough innovation in IPL permanent hair reduction. When compared to traditional IPL hair reduction treatments, SHR is faster, easier and best of all – pain free.

With SHR, you can experience comfortable hair reduction treatments in less than half the time of a traditional IPL session. The gradual heating method of the IPL SHR light delivery to the targeted hair follicle also means that treatments are comfortable and pain-free.

The rapid treatment times and superior comfort factor both make SHR a leading choice when seeking permanent and hassle-free hair reduction solutions. In addition, SHR offers a great way to save on the ongoing cost and time spent on waxing, shaving and depilatory creams.

SHR excels in rapid and painless hair reduction from larger areas. All LUX Series SHR devices also come with standard IPL, to remove hair from more difficult to access treatment areas (such as the upper lip, chin or toes].
