IPL (Intensive Pulsating Light) Treatment

This revolutionary process uses intensive pulsating light to permanently remove unwanted hair from any area of the body. The process is quick, gentle and safe.

Highly controlled flashes of light energy are selectively absorbed by hair-filled follicles. The melanin absorbs the light, heats the hair shaft damaging hair re-growth but not the surrounding skin.

The number of treatments a particular patient requires will vary due to a variety of factors including hair density, colour of skin and hair, and on location of hair on the body. At Natural Contours we use the latest high specification equipment that requires the use of skilled practitioners who optimise the settings for each patient and at each subsequent visit.

As well as hair removal IPL is used to remove the effect of thread veins. The light energy is absorbed by the haemoglobin and converted to heat energy. In time the vessel is broken down and absorbed by the body.

Photo rejuvenation is now increasingly popular the effects of the pulsating light stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production toning the skin and improving texture and vitality. A course of four to five treatments is usually required with four monthly follow-ups.
