IPL Hair Removal with Lynton Lumina
At Fiji we pride ourselves on quality of service, client satisfaction and sourcing the latest equipment to deliver the best results.
Along side the Soprano Ice Platinum we also have the latest Lynton Lumina Laser & IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). The Lynton Lumina is a medical grade laser and is certified to be used on the NHS.
For hair reduction the Lumina uses IPL for hair removal. The Soprano Ice Platinum is generally the first choice for permanent hair reduction sa its fast and pain free. The Lumina however is more effective at eliminating finer lighter hairs. Because we pride ourselves on client satisfaction so much we may use the Lumina towards the end of your laser hair removal course. This will ensure we have an even better chance of clearance once the hairs become so much lighter and finer. Although the IPL hair removal is more expensive we do not charge for this upgrade from the Soprano course, its about giving the clients the results they deserve. If your hair is finer and lighter we may decide during your consultation that the full course of hair removal is carried out using IPL on the lumina rather than the Soprano Ice.
Made in Britain by the UK’s No.1. IPL manufacturer and leading NHS supplier. This Laser is one of the only NHS Certified IPL and Lasers.
What is IPL?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a method of hair removal that uses several different wavelengths of light to permanently reduce hair growth.
How does IPL work?
For permanent hair reduction to be successful, the hair follicle itself must be destroyed which means it must be in the correct growth stage when IPL treatments are performed. This is why we normally recommend 6-12 sessions depending on which are you are having treated.
The light from the IPL is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft to create a photo-thermal effect within the follicle. This means that we are heating the hair up to destroy the follicle without damaging the surrounding tissues.
What happens during my treatment?
During your treatments the handpiece will be placed on to the skin and a pulse of light will be directed to target several follicles at the same time. The handpiece is then moved across and repeated until the entire treatment area has been completed
How will my skin look after IPL?
Your skin may be slightly red after treatment and the hair follicles may swell and turn red, this usually goes down after a few hours. We always advise to keep the area clean and free of perfumed product and keep the area cool to minimise any after effects.
Am I suitable for treatment with IPL?
Most people are suitable for hair removal treatments and best results are often achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair, as dark hair has a higher concentration of melanin and therefore is more easily treated as it absorbs light better. Treatments can take as little as 10 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the treatment area and typically 6 or more treatments are required for optimum results. Treatment is suitable for both the face and body, is quick and results can be seen after just a few sessions.
