We have 3 stages of hair growth and 3 hairs in each follicle; the only hair we can treat is the 1st phase of growth called ANAGEN. This stage of hair growth has an abundance of melanin (colour), and blood supply at the base; it is still attached to the bulb, therefore easy to treat. Only 10 to 60% of hairs are in this stage at 1 time, so each time you receive a treatment only 10 to 60 % will be destroyed, depending on which hair is in the correct phase. If the hair does not fall out… don’t panic, it just means that the other hairs where not in the right stage of growth… they will fall out eventually.
Depending on the area we treat, the hormonal influences on the body and gender, every hair will take 8 to 14 months to get into the anagen phase. That is why you will need a minimum of 6 to 8 sessions that need to be placed between 4 to 6 weeks apart to get the best and quickest result.
After 6 to 8 sessions you will have 80 to 95% reduction. YOU WILL NEVER HAVE NO HAIRS, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE BLOND WHITE, GREY AND FLUFFIES LEFT. IPL attracts to colour, so if the hair has no colour, it cannot fall out.
When we are treating the full bikini area, the mucus membrane is protected by a shield of fluid, the IPL is attracted to the fluid over the hair, therefore in the mucus membrane area, hair will get softer but WILL NEVER be gone, these areas will be shown to you by your therapist.
As we age and hormones change, if you have endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, hirsutism or any other hormonal imbalances. You will need a maintenance program (touch up) every 6 months to 1 year, again, depending on the individual depends on the exact results.
We have an abundance of dormant cells in our body, as we change in life dormant cells can activate and produce new hair growth, so after 3 months to a year, you may notice shoots of hair appearing. THIS IS NOT the hairs we have treated, but dormant cells that may have activated from a hormonal change. You will still have a significant reduction, but to maintain the great results, we highly recommend a maintenance program, consisting of 1 treatment every 3, 6 or 12 months… depending on the individual circumstances and hormonal imbalances, which cannot be controlled.
Once you have completed your course of treatments you will be amazed with the final result. The most important thing to remember is to not set unrealistic expectations, and try and complete your full course of sessions to get the best results. The hairs will be softer, thinner or possibly gone altogether, you will never have unsightly ingrowns or razor rash again, the thick dense hairs will be removed, the collagen and elastin in your skin would of activated new cells, therefore your skin will have an added bonus of being silky soft, evenly coloured and firmer to the touch.
Threading is also the gentlest form of hair removal as it avoids the skin all together and perhaps the most hygienic since there are no chemicals or tools used besides a spool of antibacterial thread. In fact, dermatologists recommend threading for anyone on topical medications since skin is not irritated by chemicals in the process. A twisted cotton thread is rolled over the desired hairline, such as the eyebrow, extracting the hair at the follicle. Unlike tweezing, threading can remove an entire row of hair at one time. Since the hair is removed from the follicle level hair usually grows back thinner and finer.
It is safe even for the most sensitive of skin types. Many find threading to be a much more pleasant experience than traditional methods of hair removal.
