Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology offer a
gentle, non invasive, long-lasting solution to
unwanted hair on the face, back , legs, bikini line
or any other body area. IPL photoepilation has been
performed safely for may years, effectively
eliminating dozens of hairs with each pulse.
Lumenis treats male and female alike anywhere on
the face and body and is suitable for most hair
Lumenis is a system of heat provided by light.
The hair and hair follicle is heated to a
temperature high enough to destroy both hair and
hair follicle, while at the same time protecting
skin. The advantage of this system is that it can
treat large areas in a relatively short time and
more importantly can treat nearly all skin types,
hair types and hair and colours, extremely
fast and efficiently. It is ideal for removing hair
from large areas such as legs or the back, for which
full treatment would take approx 1- 1/2 hours.
What does the treatment feel like and what
happens during treatment?
It begins by trimming away the hair above the
skin. You may be asked to wear dark glasses to
protect your eyes from the bright light. Next, a
cold gel (similar to ultrasound gel) may be spread
over the treatment area. The IPL hand piece is then
applied to your skin and pulses of light begin
disabling your unwanted hair. When the gel is
removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. The
remaining hair in the treated area falls out over
the next week or two.
Each pulse of light feels like a slight sting or
pinch, similar to the snap of a rubber band. No
local anaesthesia is required and most people
tolerate the treatment well.
Are there any possible side effects?
Side effects are rare. You may experience some
slight reddening at the treatment site, but this
typically goes away within hours. On rare occasions
some blistering or bruising may occur, but typically
resolves quickly. Limiting sun exposure before and
after each treatment will minimize the the risk of
What kind of results should i expect?
IPL technology has been proven to create a
permanent reduction in the number of growing hairs
following each treatment. The numbers of treatments
required depends on several factors related to your
specific kind of hair and skin. A customised
treatment program will be designed for you along
with an estimate of how many treatments you may need
in order to meet your expectations.

How is the Photorejuvenation procedure
A cold gel is usually applied to the area to be
treated, and you may be given dark glasses to
protect your eyes from the bright light.
The smooth glass surface of the IPL hand piece
is gently applied to your skin and the pulses of
light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like
the snapping of a small rubbed band. Treatment is
generally administered in a series of procedures
that provides excellent long term results, minimal
adverse affects and high satisfaction. Each
treatment takes about thirty to forty minutes.
Why are multiple treatments necessary?
Depending on the number of conditions you are
treating, and the severity of the individual
problem, a series of three to six treatment sessions
may be recommended. You can return to work the same
day and resume all your regular activities. By
dividing the full program into several treatments,
the procedure provides 'gradual improvement with
very low risk' - and, it preserves the wonderful 'no
downtime' feature that people appreciate so much.
blemishes from broken blood vessels and brown spots
of pigment from sun damage respond to the Pulsed
Light. The light is changed to heat energy as it
reaches the level of the collagen beneath the skin
surface. Red and brown skin blemishes are absorbed
by the body and collagen growth is stimulated
leaving smoother, even colour & tone of skin.
