We offer several methods of hair removal at the clinic near Solihull
CELLEC IPL HAIR REDUCTION
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. This offers a long-term solution to unwanted hair for both women and men. During a treatment shots of intense pulsed light are targeted at the skin through a gel to offer protection. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, quickly turning to heat which then kills the growing cells that make the hair.
For the IPL to work effectively shaving is the method of hair removal required in between treatments. Waxing, epilation and electrolysis can not be used as this removes the hair from the follicle.
After the first hair removal treatment the hairs will start to fall away between one day and two weeks. Ideally 4-6 weeks are needed in between treatments. On average 4-8 hair removal treatment are needed.

A consultation is required. During this initial appointment the treatment will be discussed in detail and any concerns you may have will be addressed. A test shot will be carried out on the desired area to assess individual reaction.
Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face or body.
Electrolysis does not just remove the hair, it destroys the hair follicle that produces the hair so that the effect is permanent. This is done by using a fine probe that is passed down the hair follicle and a current is adjusted to the type of hair to apply heat and destroy the follicle.We use the Apilus computerised machine which is the most effective technology available.
A hair follicle destroyed by electrolysis will never produce a hair or bother you again! Electrolysis only works if the hair is dark. Very light or white hair cannot be treated due to the lack of pigment.
Electrolysis can treat any area of the body and it is a relatively comfortable treatment. The machine can be adapted to suit the individual client. You will however need regular treatments to get an effective hair free result.
As consultation is advised before treatment, we are able to discuss if this is the best hair removal option for you.
Waxing can treat any area of the body to remove hair temporarily. This can be done through warm strip wax or hot peel-able wax depending on which area is to be treated.
Waxing removes all unwanted hair in one session. As the hair is only being removed from the follicle, the hair will grow back. When the hair does grow back it will grow back tapered at the end and will feel much finer, softer and sparser.
Generally around every 4-6 weeks the waxing will require repeating.
Waxing can treat any hair colouring whether it is dark hair, vellus and even white hair. Fantastic short term hair free results with Jax Wax Australia using enticing fragrances such as lemon, strawberry, lavender coconut and lime.
