|The modern way to remove unwanted hair
How does iPulse work?
Forget all those slow and painful ways of treating unwanted body hair-like waxing, depilatory creams, electrolysis and lasers. We can offer you the ultimate treatment in modern light-based systems. It’s called iPulse and is simply the quickest, safest and most convenient method of hair removal ever created. It uses a technology known as ‘intense pulsed light’. iPulse destroys the cells that produce a hair by introducing pulses of light and heat energy into the hair follicle. Whilst your blood naturally keeps your skin cool, all the heat is absorbed by the hair, causing the follicle to die-and preventing another hair from re-growing. This process is typically many times faster than traditional light-based treatments.
Is it completely safe? With iPulse, you can have confidence in a system proved to give complete and beautiful results. Our therapists have been properly trained to use the iPulse equipment, which is designed with your comfort very much in mind. The treatment is non-invasive with the whole technology based on significantly reducing the growth of unwanted hair without damaging the skin. iPulse is a registered trademark and patented technology of CyDen Limited.
How does it feel… will it be painful? A slight tingling sensation best describes the feeling during iPulse treatment. This is minimised by a special cooling gel applied just before the session starts. iPulse is infinitely more comfortable and quicker than oldfashioned methods of hair removal like waxing and electrolysis.
