IPL laser hair removal works by applying a broad-spectrum light to the surface of the skin where it strikes the hair shaft or foot. The light is absorbed and the hair root is heated and destroyed. An average of eight to 10 treatments are usually required to remove visible hair.
Although laser hair removal is more expensive than waxing or threading, most people see a massive reduction in hair regrowth. The treatment is relatively painless, with most clients describing the sensation as a slight stinging.
Book a free consultation and we will devise a personalised care plan. For optimum results, we recommend a course of treatments at four to eight weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle.
Our prices start from £25 and we offer a discount for bookings of 6 sessions.

During your treatment the hand held IPL applicator will be positions gently against the skin, and pulses of light will be delivered, heating up and damaging or destroying the hair follicles.
The sensation felt during the treatment will vary from patient to patient. Many find it completely painless while others report a mild tingling or stinging.
This will depend on the size of the area to be treated. Treatment time can vary from 5 minutes to 120 minutes. We will advise you at your initial consultation.
The sensation will vary from person to person, with many reporting that it is completely painless. Some people feel a mild stinging sensation or tingling, while others report a feeling like the snap of an elastic band.
You should start to see permanent hair reduction in 4 to 6 weeks, depending on your skin and hair colour, but is important to complete the recommended treatment programme in order to see optimum results.
We recommend a course of treatments at four to six weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle. An average of eight to 10 treatments are usually required to remove all visible hair.
We usually recommend a series of between 8 and 10 treatments at 4 to 6 weekly intervals to achieve optimum results, but this will depend on your hair and skin type.
We treat each patient as an individual, so at your initial consultation we will work out a treatment programme together which will achieve your hair reduction aims.
Our hair grows in 3 different stages and not all of it is at the same stage at the same time. This means that your initial treatment will only cover a percentage of the hair follicles that are at the stage of growth to be affected by the IPL. This means you will require follow up treatments to ensure all your hair follicles have been covered and effectively reduce your unwanted hair growth.
Side effects are usually mild and do ot last long. Occasionally patients may experience a slight tenderness and mild redness, like sunburn. This is sometimes accompanied by very minor swelling immediately after the treatment. These effects should subside within a day or two of treatment.
IPL laser hair removal is generally best suited for those with light skin and dark hair where there is the greatest contrast between the melanin (pigmentation) in the skin and that in the hair follicle.
Our experienced practitioners will be able to advise you on whether this is a suitable treatment for you. We also offer other effective hair reduction treatments at Sparx including Waxing and Threading.
