Intense Pulsed Light

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is able to treat a variety of skin concerns. IPL is well known for its use as a long-term solution for treating unwanted body hair. Intense Pulsed Light is also extremely effective at treating a variety of skin concerns too. SkinBase IPL is a medically certified system which uses a cryo-cooling handset to ensure ultimate comfort during treatment.

IPL Medical Therapies

IPL is a safe and effective, non-surgical treatment. If you’re suffering from acne, vascular lesions like thread veins or pigmentation then IPL medical therapies could be the treatment you need. IPL works by using light to target specific skin structures heating them to remove unwanted hair, pigmentation, acne, and more. In the case of hair reduction, the light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and converted to heat, which damages the hair follicle and leaves it unable to support future hair growth.

Is Your Salon An Experience Or An Expense?

Think about it – there are some things in life that we buy for pleasure. Examples may be a bar of chocolate, a glass of wine, a good book or even a holiday. On the other hand, there are many things in life that we must buy because we need them. We have no emotional connection to these types of purchases as they’re considered a necessity.
