ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A TREATMENT?

Two or three days after the treatment, stubble may reappear. It is fine to shave if you need to. In one to two weeks’ time, you can see shedding of the damaged hair. This is NOT the new hair growth.

When the shedding is complete, some new hair will reappear and it would be time for your next treatment. (typically 4-6 weeks)

CAN I REMOVE HAIR BETWEEN TREATMENTS?

You can shave between treatments as IPL works with the bulb and shaft of the hair, which is untouched by shaving. If you tweeze or wax between treatments, you have to wait till the hair grows back before doing your treatment.

WHY IS MY HAIR STILL GROWING?

This is a common question for new clients of IPL. After pulsed light treatment, the body requires time to shed the hair which had been thermally destroyed. It may take few days and perhaps two to three weeks to fully shed the thermally damaged hair. Even though it appears as though hair continues to grow, it is actually the body shedding the hair, and over time the treated hair will grow out of the skin. This should not be mistaken for continued hair growth.

ARE THERE ANY FACTORS THAT MIGHT AFFECT TREATMENT?

IPL does not work well with light-coloured hair as there's not much pigment. There might also be possible complications for clients with darker skin tone, due to the high concentration of pigment in the skin.

Certain medications such as muscle relaxants, anti-depressants, anti-cancer drugs, acne medications and topical creams containing Retin-A may make your body more sensitive to light, hence it is recommended that clients be re-scheduled at a time when they are no longer on medications.

 

AFTERCARE TIPS

Things to take note:

BEFORE TREATMENT

  • Avoid sun exposure or the use of tanning beds for the duration of your course of treatments as actively tanned skin cannot be treated.
  • Avoid use of perfumed products (e.g. deodorants) or sun-block lotions
  • Avoid exfoliating for 1 week before treatment.
  • On the day of your IPL treatment session you should avoid wearing tight clothing.

AFTERCARE TIPS

  • Avoid sun exposure or the use of tanning beds for the duration of your course of treatments as actively tanned skin cannot be treated.
  • Avoid very hot baths /sauna /swimming for 1 week, and NOT on the day of treatment. Avoid rough sports & tight clothing for 1-2 days.
  • Do not shave for 1-2 days after your treatment. Leave the hairs in the follicles for at least a few days after the treatment. This will help reduce any chances of an opportunistic infection in the damaged follicle. The hairs will drop out naturally over the following weeks.
  • In some cases the area treated can be red, warm and bumpy for up to 48h hours after treatment. If it's uncomfortable you can cool the area with a cold towel (avoid ice). For fast relief antihistamines tablets (Zyrtec/ Telfast) are recommended. Available at all pharmacies.
  • Always seek professional medical advice and contact a doctor immediately if any symptoms are of concern. Inform us of any adverse reactions and for any questions if needed.
