IPL stands for intense pulsed light. Similar to laser, it is a type of light therapy used to get rid of unwanted hair. During treatments, hair follicles are exposed to intense flashes of light which disrupt the hair growth cycle, leading to permanent hair removal in the desired area over time. IPL is also used to treat wrinkles and spots.
The process of IPL therapy starts off with a device emitting an intense flash of light. This light gets absorbed by the melanin (dark pigment) in your hair follicles. Because of this, people with very light hair will not be able to see results since their hair does not contain enough melanin. On the other hand, people with the darkest of skin tones will not be suitable as the device may target the skin rather than the hair follicles.
The process of IPL therapy starts off with a device emitting an intense flash of light. This light gets absorbed by the melanin (dark pigment) in your hair follicles. A tan will bring the melanin in your skin up to the surface, which can put you at greater risk of a laser burn. It's best to wait 2-3 weeks or until your tan lines have faded before conducting a treatment in the exposed area.
Yes, you should shave the desired areas before using your handset OR ensure that your hairs are less than 2mm long. This is to ensure that the IPL light reaches the root of your hair rather than just the ends. Make sure not to tweeze, wax or epilate the desired area because this will take away the root of the hair follicle.

Microdermabrasion uses a combination of vacuum suction and exfoliation to polish away dead skin cells and unclog pores revealing a softer and smoother complexion. It also boosts the production of collagen, which will reduce fine lines, prevent wrinkles, and improve the skin's elasticity.
Microdermabrasion is suitable for most skin types. Your treatment can be customized by adjusting the suction level to suit your comfort. Always start your treatment with the lowest suction and increase as needed. If you're using chemical peels or products containing hydroxy acids, malic acid, lactic acid or retinoids, it is recommended you wait one week before using your handset.
Microdermabrasion is a very comfortable, non invasive skin treatment. The sensation when having a microdermabrasion treatment can be compared to that of an exfoliating scrub combined with a light facial massage.
