                             How does the hair removal system work?

The IPL (Intense Pulsed Light Therapy) hair removal procedure produces a high intensity flash of filtered light from the applicator head, which has been placed in contact with the skin. The energy from the light source is absorbed by the pigment melanin, which is the chromospheres, which gives hair its colour. The hair rapidly absorbs this filtered light and transfers it to the surrounding cells that in turn are converted into heat raising them to a temperature of 70 degree Centigrade or more. The heating denatures the cells making them incapable of producing further hair growth.

How is the treatment carried out?

The glass applicator is placed in contact with skin surface and the light is pulsed through it onto the skin. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated.

Who can be treated?

Dark hairs are most easily treated due to the high concentration of melanin that gives maximum absorption and conversion of light energy into heat. Very fair hair has less melanin and consequently less heat is produced, simply raising the fluency output from the IPL treats such hair. White hair has no melanin and cannot be efficiently treated. The upper skin layer of the epidermis also contains melanin and the concentration increases when the skin is exposed to UV light. It is therefore necessary to treat the dark skinned individuals with less energy to avoid generation of excess heat and pain in the skin. The IPL software allows you to adjust the treatment parameters for different hair and pigment type.
SUITABLE FOR ANY SKIN COLOUR & HAIR TYPE

Does it hurt?

As the light energy is absorbed by the pigment melanin, the discomfort depends upon the concentration of melanin in the epidermis and the hairs combined. Consequently it hurts more in dark skinned people and those with dense dark hair hairs. No anaesthesia is required and most patients describe the pain as moderate and acceptable (as if a hairbrush has been tapped against the skin)

Do you need to shave prior to the treatment?

Ideally, hairs should be 1 to 2mm long when you come in for the treatment so it is possible to mark out the treatment area. Long hairs take up the energy and prevent all of it reaching to the hair root. Therefore hair is trimmed just before for maximum transmission of the energy. If the hair is normally shaved and can be seen when shaven then you can shave right up to the day of treatment. Although plucking and bleaching should not be done. By avoiding any other form of epilating and waxing 4 weeks before the treatment it ensures as many follicles as possible contain hair thus can be destroyed by the light

Why do hairs "grow" after treatment?

Unlike other light depilation treatments, hairs are not vaporised by the IPL treatment. The heat kills the hair roots but the hairs remain in the skin and often become attached to the epidermis. They will fall out after 1 to 3 weeks as the epidermis renews itself. During this period it will seem that the hairs are growing a little faster as the epidermis pushes them out.

How can you tell if the treatment has worked when the hairs are not removed immediately?

Various Indications such as colour of Hair becoming charcoal black and expanding in size or a Red ring around each follicle is often seen a few minutes after the treatment. These are good indications that sufficient heating of the follicles has taken place. Unfortunately this is not always seen and we have seen many patients with successful treatments results without the post treatment signs.

What are the side effects?
 
The visible light should be completely safe, so no special precautions are needed apart from glasses for the brightness generated from flash lamp. The skin of some people can be quite red immediately after treatment and very rarely small blisters as from excessive sun exposure can occur. However, most people experience no side effects at all and the described skin reactions as above usually disappear within hours to few days. Unlike electrolysis the IPL treatment is non-invasive

How many treatments are necessary?

Only hair in the growth phase can be treated. The number of hairs in this phase varies from 20%to 90% depending on the body site. The lengths of the growth cycles also vary from 6 to 24 weeks depending on the body site. For most people three to six treatments are sufficient to clear an area of hair in rare cases up to twelve. After the first to fourth treatment most patients get a significant reduction in hair density also new grown hairs tend to become finer. It is important to know that the first treatment is believed to synchronise the anagen (growth) phase of the non-anagen hairs. This may cause what seems to be regrowth but actually just sleeping hairs starting to grow at the same time (new growth) This in turn makes next treatment(s) more effective

How do I prepare for treatment?

Patients should avoid tanning 1 month ahead of the treatment and immediately after treatment the skin is particularly sensitive to UV light and strong sunlight should be avoided for 4-5 days.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

The Facial treatment usually takes 10 minutes whereas both legs and an entire back take approximately 1hour

Is It Permanent?

Most authorities would agree that using current laser and IPL technology it is possible to permanently remove hair. Histology studies have found destroyed and denatured hair follicles cells in post treatment. A recent study showed that the percentage reduction in hairs after treatment using IPL systems are well above 80%.

After the procedure.

For the first few days after your treatment you should apply aloe vera gel to soothe the affected area. Also, a sun-cream of at least SPF30 should be applied to exposed treated areas every day for at least four weeks, regardless of the weather. You shouldn’t expose the treated area to the sun or use sun beds for at least four weeks before and after treatment. Follow up treatments every 2-4 weeks

Does the IPL treat hair removal only?

No. We can also treat red spider veins, acne, blemishes, pigmentation, Tattoo removal, some stretch marks and photo rejuvenation.

 

What about follow up skincare to be used at home?

I will recommend follow up skin care for your chosen treatment to ensure the best results.

 

What payment methods can clients use?

Cash, EFTPOS credit cards. Payment is made at completion of the treatment and packages are paid in full up front to receive a discount.

No cheques will be accepted.

 

What happens when you make a booking?

On your first visit you will be asked to complete a consultation card. This information will be entered into a database. The care and information is retained by Somewhere Special. You will then receive a full consultation.

IPL CONTRAINDICATIONS AND PHOTOSENSITIZING MEDICATIONS

We cannot treat anyone who has known or reported the following unless a letter from your GP is available confirming that the medical condition(s) will not prevent treatment using intense pulsed light:

• Tanned skin (active tan) through sun exposure or tanning bed use in the previous 30 days (because of increased risk of hyper pigmentation). However, we are able to IPL dark skin types. If you would like to have an IPL treatment, you get quicker results the lighter the skin, so avoid tanning or even spray tanning on that area.

• IPL Hair Removal -Waxing, plucking, ‘sugaring’ or ‘threading’ depilation treatment of the area in the previous 4 – 6 weeks (because the follicle has been removed).

• Hypo pigmentation (e.g. Vitiligo).

• Any inflammatory skin condition e.g. eczema, active Herpes Simplex, etc. at the treatment site (because it may aggravate the condition).

• Skin cancer or any other cancer and / or who reports he/she is undertaking any cancer drug therapy (such as Ducabaxine, Fluorouracil, Methotrexate, etc).

• A history of Keloid scarring (because any IPL burn may produce a Keloid scar).

• Epilepsy (because repeated consecutive flashes may induce a fit).

• Using St John’s Wort (herbal remedy) in the past 3 months for depression (owing to photosensitivity).

• Who has oral Isotretinoin-Roaccutane or Tretinoin-Retin A in the previous 3 – 6 months for the treatment of acne or other dermatological conditions.

• Who is pregnant; until periods return and end of breast feeding (because

hormonal imbalance may reduce treatment effectiveness).

• Who takes drugs for diabetes (owing to possible photosensitivity and poor wound healing).

• Taking anti-coagulant drugs (e.g. for heart disease).

• Wearing a pacemaker unless the IPL or pacemaker manufacturer confirms in

writing that it is safe to treat the client wearing the pacemaker.

• Taking any topical medication (e.g. hydrocortisone) or wearing perfumes,

deodorants, sun block, essential oils or other skin lotions (which could cause

photosensitivity).

• Surgical metal pins or plates under the tissue to be treated.

• To be less than 18 years of age as our establishment is not registered to treat

children with IPL.

A doctor’s letter will be required before treating clients who are reportedly using Quinidine, any anti-psychotic medication or large combinations of cardiac / diuretic drugs, topical steroid creams in the area to be treated, general anaesthesia in the IPL contraindications and photosensitizing medications vers 1.0 February 2009 last 3 months, local anaesthetic near treated areas in the past month or where you are uncertain about any reported medical condition or medication.

A doctor’s letter will be required for those clients who have reported a fake tan,

suffering with allergies, has hormone abnormalities such as polycystic ovarian

syndrome, has cold sores in the treatment area, has reported HIV or Hepatitis.

Transsexuals may be treated although results can vary and IPL treatment should

follow 6 months after completion of hormone therapy.

Conditions that affect hormone levels such as thyroid conditions, oral steroids,

hormonal therapy and polycystic ovaries can be treated but results may vary and realistic outcomes may be reduced or delayed.

Information on Drug-Induced Photosensitivity

There are many drugs and some herbal remedies available at the moment that can cause the skin to become very sensitive to light. Whether these drugs are taken by mouth or applied to the skin, a reaction can occur. This reaction is called ‘Drug-Induced Photosensitivity’. Therefore, it is very important that you read this information and notify the Operator of any drugs that you may be using.

Photosensitivity reactions can be divided into two groups:

Photo-Toxic Reactions - these are dose related and can be seen to a slight degree in people who are exposed to sunlight (presumed to be due to the UV component).

Photo-Allergic Reactions – these involve the immune system and may be similar to other allergic reactions, swelling, rashes and hives.

The drugs cause this reaction by absorbing either UV or visible radiation from

sunlight or the Equipment light (which is in the visible part of the spectrum) that is delivered by IPL systems.

Types of Photosensitivity:

·         Abnormal and extreme sunburn

·         Stinging and burning

·         Vesicles- A small sac or cyst containing fluid or gas

·         Hives

·         Swelling

The degree of photo-sensitive response is also normally dose-related, so the higher the dose of a particular photosensitive drug (or herbal remedy such as St. John’s Wort), the greater the probability of a reaction and the greater the degree of skin response.
