Why Choose IPL & Laser Hair Removal at Sparx Winchester Clinic?

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.

For optimum results, we recommend a course of treatments at four to eight weekly intervals to follow the hair growth cycle.

IPL & laser hair removal works by applying a broad-spectrum light to the surface of the skin where it strikes the hair shaft and hair follicle.  The light is absorbed and the hair root is heated and destroyed.  An average of six to 8 treatments are usually required to remove visible hair using laser or IPL treatments.  

Our Lynton Lumina technology allows us to offer both IPL and Nd:Yag laser hair removal, meaning that we can safely and effectively remove unwanted hair on all skin tones.   The ND:Yag laser is considered the safest of all lasers for treating dark skins due to the long wavelength of the light it emits, which reduces the levels of absorption by melanin in the skin.

What Is The Difference Between IPL and Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal treatment targets hair which is in its active growth phase.  The laser beam is made up of precisely controlled light energy which is absorbed by the pigment or melanin in the hair.  The heat energy reaches down to the hair follicle and safely destroys it, without causing any damage to the surrounding skin and tissues.

IPL is a similar treatment, but it uses a broad spectrum of light with multiple wave-lengths (whereas laser uses a single spectrum of light).   This means that the energy is scattered further around the skin and hair and has less strength, but it is still effective for use for hair removal on lighter skin tones.  It is also a gentle and effective treatment for skin-rejuvenation, thread veins, facial flushing and rosacea.

Prior to your treatment, we will carry out a thorough consultation to assess your suitability for treatment and come up with a treatment plan.   We will take details of your medical history and answer any questions you may have.

Your safety is always our number one concern, and at your consultation we will carry out a small patch test to check for any reaction to the laser treatment.

At your consultation we will come up with a treatment plan that will work for you.  Your treatments will usually be at four to six-week intervals - to follow the growth cycle of the hairs to catch as many as possible.

Laser Hair Removal FAQs

Nearly all areas of the body can be treated with laser, including the face, underarms, arms, legs, back, bikini line, chest, and more.   Book a consultation for more information on the treatment areas we can cover.  
We ask all patients to shave the treatment area before their appointment. We will then apply a cool gel and the laser applicator will be positioned gently against the skin.  Pulses of intense light are then delivered into the hairs, destroying the follicles and preventing re-growth.  The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area of skin and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated.
Treatments generally take from as little as 10 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated.   We will advise you on what to expect at your initial consultation.
Sensations vary from patient to patient but it is often described as “a flick of an elastic band”. Typically no anaesthesia is required and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable.
With any permanent hair reduction treatment you can usually expect to see full results in 4 to 6 weeks, but this will depend on your skin and hair colour. The hair follicles are damaged by heat during the treatment but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis (skin) renews. During this period the hairs may seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis.
A series of 3-6 treatments is usally recommended for optimal results but we will develop a personalised treatment plan for your own particular circumstances after your initial consultation. 
Our hair grows in 3 different stages and not all our hair is in the same stage at the same time.   This means that when an area is treated with the laser, only a percentage of hair follicles will be affected.  This means that in order to effectively reduce your unwanted hair, multiple treatments will be required.
Following treatment you can expect to see a gradual decrease in the thickness and amount of hair present.  Compared to other types of hair removal, you should also see a decrease in stubble, rashes and in-grown hairs.
The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin.
At Sparx we are long-standing laser experts and were amongst the first in the UK to be trained on the benefits of laser technology in the beauty and aesthetics business. Laser hair removal is more expensive than waxing or threading but by using the latest technology, it is more affordable than you might think.  It also offers a very significant reduction in hair regrowth, meaning you will require fewer treatments in the long-run.
We suggest that you book a series of treatments and prices will depend on the area to be covered.   Book a consultation and we can discuss the best approach in more detail and assess the varying factors more accurately after which we can provide you with a personalised quote.
