It’s that time of year again.
Christmas markets, having a bit too much to drink at the work party, absolutely freezing when you leave the house… ah, the joy of winter.
However, it also means we’re looking ahead to next year. Plans, resolutions, all that jazz. What are yours?
Spending all your time shaving and waxing probably isn’t on the list, is it? Yet it’s definitely something you’re going to have to deal with, alongside little nicks in the shower or sore skin.
Well, what if we told you there’s a way to leave all of that behind in 2022? Yep, it’s true, and it all starts with a nifty little service we’ve been able to add to our repertoire this year: IPL.
In case you missed the news, IPL is one of the brand new services the salon started offering this year.
IPL stands for ‘intense pulsed light’. It aims heat and pulses of light at the root of the hair to produce heat, which helps reduce or eliminate hair growth. It can be used to target specific areas of the body, or alternatively across the whole body.
Aside from body hair reduction, IPL is also used to treat, reduce or eliminate rosacea, acne, thread veins, age spots and skin pigmentation.
Winter is actually prime time to get started with IPL. First of all, your skin is a bit lighter, which means the treatments are more effective; IPL works best on lighter skin because it better focuses on the dark hairs.
While you can have a single IPL session, we always recommend a course of treatments – this produces the best results over time. We’d ideally recommend six sessions, which have to be spaced apart in order to prevent any damage to the skin. So, an additional benefit of starting now is that by summer 2023, your course will be finished and you’ll be done with waxing before the sun comes back out.
Finally, IPL treatments can’t be done 6 weeks before or after a holiday. So, unless you’re jetting off for some winter sun (which would leave us very jealous), now is a good time to get started without compromising next year’s holiday plans.
We get it. It sounds way too good to be true. But IPL can genuinely be incredibly effective, and our previous customers have been super satisfied with the service so far.
Just to make sure you believe us, here’s a quick word from a couple of them:
“I can't believe how well the treatment has gone! After the first session I could see a massive change. I was a bit sceptical to start with as you just never know with these things but oh my its incredible, no more pain with waxing or ingrown hairs, I’m so happy with the result and I'm going to have more done”
"I was very skeptical about laser hair removal , until I decided to just try it as I was fed up of constant shaving and waxing was too painful to endure ! After 4 sessions I have zero hair growing and I'm LOVING life , one less chore to worry about ! I'm now having my legs done and in the new Yr I plan on having my underarms done too , I absolutely cannot wait to never buy a shaver again !!! The time it sames me in the shower is invaluable!!!!"
“I have received IPL on my arms having always suffered with dark body hair all over. I have always been very self conscious of this. I was very doubtful at first that this would work for me as I have tried various things in the past - however the transformation has been amazing. I am so impressed with the results that I and now paying to have my legs done. I no longer have any dark hairs on my arm and can confidently wear tops with my arms out. I’d recommend to anyone to have this done.”
