IPL Laser Hair Removal Perth

IPL laser hair removal in Perth is revolutionising the way we treat unwanted hair: A short course of intense pulsed light (IPL) can replace the need for continuous and ongoing waxing, tweezing and bleaching.

After IPL laser hair removal, most hair will not grow back at all, while other hair may grow back thinner and lighter in colour. For dark, thick hairs there is nothing better! With our specialist equipment, Skin Resus can safely treat hair on all skin types, even very dark skins.

Quick, Effective, Medical Grade IPL

At Skin Resus, we use the Palomar Starlux 300 and 500 IPL systems.  In addition to being one of the most powerful IPL machines available, Starlux are much faster than other light-based hair removal systems - which means quick treatments for you! Smaller areas - such as the underarms, upper lip or bikini line - can be treated in about 5 minutes. Lower legs or man’s back can be treated in under 30 minutes.

Fully qualified, experienced practitioners

At Skin Resus all our treatments are performed by our very experienced Registered Nurses. In our Floreat clinic alone we have performed over 10,000 IPL hair removal treatments.

It hurts less than waxing - honestly!

Some IPL machines can be quite painful. However, another huge advantage of the Starlux IPL machines is the integrated cooling.  The handpiece of the IPL machine is constantly chilled, and this means that any discomfort is minimised - and it's much safer for your skin. Most people tell us that Skin Resus IPL hurts less than waxing!

In addition, since the pulses of light penetrate the skin, you do not need to let your hair grow between treatments: just shave or clip the hair to maintain a smooth appearance.

How does Intense Pulsed Light work?           

Highly controlled flashes of intense filtered light are directed onto the skin. This light is absorbed by the melanin in dark hair and converted to heat. The heat then destroys the follicle without damaging the surrounding tissue. A course of 6-8 treatments are usually required, with each treatment done 4-6 weeks apart.

What are IPL treatments like?

Quick and easy! After your initial consultation, our Doctor or Registered Nurse will move the IPL handpiece over your skin. The handpiece emits a light that destroys the hair follicles. Each pulse feels like a slight sting, similar to the snap of a rubber band.

How much does IPL hair removal cost?

A course of treatments are needed for permanent hair removal, with prices starting from just $60 per treatment.  For an accurate idea of the costs, just give us a call or send an email and talk to one of our friendly team.

What should I expect after treatment?

You may get some redness and swelling around the follicle (similar to what you can see after waxing) and you will sometimes feel a mild sunburn-like sensation, usually lasting less than an hour.

After your IPL treatment, the hair will appear to keep growing for 1—2 weeks, while the hair in the follicle is expelled. During this time, you can shave as often as you wish to keep your skin nice and smooth.  After 1-2 weeks (depending on the area treated) the hair will fall out and then nothing will grow for the next 2-3 weeks, until just before your next treatment.
