IPL HAIR REMOVAL
SICK OF SHAVING, WAXING OR INGROWN HAIRS?? THEN SHR IPL IS THE WAY TO GO!
HOW DOES IT ALL WOKR?
Using a small wand, your Bella technician will glide the device along the surface of your skin. Emitting waves of light which are absorbed by the individual hairs. This disintegrates the hair and damages the hair follicle, preventing future hair growth.
SHR is completely safe and gentle on your skin, causing very little irritation and pain or discomfort. No harmful chemicals are used and the process does not cause any damage to the skin or treated area. The skin itself is exposed to very little heat. Gentle waves of light energy are emitted to the skins surface and only when the energy contacts hair, does it turn to heat.
White hairs cannot be treated. Dark hairs on fair skin have the best and quickest results. Fair hairs may require extra treatments.

Avoid sun exposure as you cannot be treated if you have had UV exposure (from sun or sun beds) with the past 4-6weeks.
Cover well and use sunscreen when outside to prevent extra activity of the melanin cells in your skin (melanin cells are responsible for tanning).
Avoid fake tan as it stains the outer skin cells and will intensify the heat during treatment. We cannot treat you if you have had a tan within the last 4 weeks prior to your treatment.
Shave between appointments; avoid waxing, plucking, depilatory creams.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
SHR is a faster and uses a less intense treatment. As described, Laser is sharper and more intense, individually destroying the hair follicle. SHR covers a wider area of skin, speeding up the procedure as it uses a broad range of light spectrums reducing the sensitivity and heat on surrounding areas, unlike Laser hair removal.
HOW DOES THIS COMPARE TO LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Your hair is constantly growing in cycles, so a course of anywhere 8 to 12 treatments is usually required to make sure we are able to treat your hair at all stages of the hair growth.
Facial appointments are booked every 4 weeks and rest of the body is every 6 weeks.
Depending on your hair and skin type, it may be difficult to achieve a completely permanent result, requiring you to re-treat the area with 1-2 top up sessions every 6 -12 months.
SHR usually takes more than one treatment to achieve permanent hair removal. Our hair grows in cycles; hence all of your hair cannot be removed in the first treatment. You cannot wax or tweeze in between treatments, however shaving is completely fine.
