What is IPL Laser Hair Removal?
IPL laser hair removal is revolutionising the way men treat unwanted hair in Perth: A course of intense pulsed light (IPL) can leave your skin soft, smooth and hair-free.
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. For most men, a course of 8 - 12 treatments are usually required, with each treatment done about 6 weeks apart.
After a course of IPL laser hair removal at our Perth clinic, most hair will not grow back at all, while other hair may grow back thinner and lighter in colour. Dark, thick hairs respond particularly well to IPL hair removal. With our specialist equipment, Skin Resus can safely treat hair on all skin types, even very dark skins.

Why choose Skin Resus for your IPL Laser Hair Removal
Quick, Effective, Medical Grade IPL
At Skin Resus, we use the Palomar Starlux 500 and Lumenis M22 IPL systems, which give great results and can safely be used on all skin types, even very dark skins. Treatments with our medical strength IPL machines are very fast: a back or chest can be treated in about 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 15,000 IPL hair removal treatments.
It hurts less than waxing - honestly!
Another huge advantage of the both the Palomar Starlux and the Lumenis M22 IPL machines is the integrated cooling. The hand-pieces of the IPL machine are constantly chilled, and this means that discomfort is minimized - and it's much safer for your skin. Most people tell us that Skin Resus IPL hurts less than waxing.
And, 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.

What are IPL laser hair removal treatments like?
Quick and easy! After your initial consultation, our Registered Nurse will move the IPL hand-piece over your skin. The hand-piece emits a light that destroys the hair follicles. Each pulse feels like a slights sting, similar to the snap of a rubber band. After the 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 about a week, while the hair in the follicle is expelled. After 7 - 10 days the hair will fall out and then nothing will grow for the next 3-4 weeks, until just before your next treatment.
Does IPL Hair Removal have any side effects?
- Some redness or swelling around the follicle may be seen after the treatment. This will usually settle within an hour.
- Darker skin types, for example Mediterranean and Asian skins, need to be treated more cautiously, although the risks are still low if the IPL equipment can be adjusted to allow for skin colour.
- Crusting or blistering can occasionally be seen. This is rare and more common in darker or tanned skins.
- Fine hair on darker skin can be slow to respond, and in some cases an increase of hair growth has been seen. For this reason we advise against treatment if you fall into this category.
- Hyper-pigmentation (brown spots) may occur, as can loss or reduction of pigment - both are very rare and will usually resolve within a few weeks to months.
- Lack of response: In rare cases, IPL hair removal will not work despite our best efforts.
