What Should I Do Before Any Treatments?
For any of these types of treatment you should avoid any form of tanning 4-6 weeks before treatment. This includes spray tans, solariums and sun tans. Also avoid waxing, plucking, depilatory creams and electrolysis at lease 4-6 weeks before your appointment. We request you shave the area being treated 3 days before your IPL appointment.
For the best Microdermabrasion results a skin consultation is conducted before your treatment and will allow your therapist to assess your skin for this type of procedure. It’s best to avoid sunbathing, waxing and peels 72 hours before this procedure. There are also contra-indications of using Retinol based products.
Are They All Safe?
Yes. All these treatments are very safe and performed by Sydney’s most qualified, skilled & experienced staff. Ensuring your procedure is administered correctly is important, however, you must provide accurate data to us before each session, and that our recommendations for pre and post care are followed.
They are not painful procedures either, and for IPL the new cooling system technology on our machine minimises any redness or discomfort compared to normal laser hair removal options.
In the case of Microdermabrasion, there is no downtime making them an ideal session in lunch-time or after work.
IPL HAIR REMOVAL:
IPL (intense pulsed light, often referred to as laser hair removal) is an effective procedure that deals with hair reduction and skin treatments such as reducing pigmentation and spider veins. The new and improved technology now offers a contact cooling on the skin minimising any redness or discomfort during the hair removal process for the best results possible. This is a newer type of technology than traditional laser hair procedures.
