Hair removal is a big part of most people’s beauty regime but different methods such as shaving and
waxing have their drawbacks such as ingrown hairs and increased sensitivity. At the London
Cosmetic Skin Clinic we use the NORDLYS Ellipse IPL system for a number of different purposes
including long-term, chemical-free hair removal.
The IPL system emits a series of varying light pulses which are absorbed by the skin; this causes a
thermal reaction with the pigment in the hair follicles, destroying it and rendering it unable to
regrow. We have found that the best results are achieved when there is a greater contrast between
the skin and the hair, i.e. dark hair against fair skin but we can also achieve great results on darker
toned skin. You may need several treatments depending on how much hair you have, the area being
treated and your pigmentation but we will confirm how many sessions you will need at your initial
IPL hair removal can be used on many different parts of the body such as the armpits and bikini line
and the NORDLYS system is one of the most precise and powerful models available. Straight after
the treatment you may find that your skin appears red and like it has been sunburned but once your
skin has recovered it will feel healthier as well as smoother and hair-free as IPL treatments
encourage the skin’s natural recovery response. We also advise that you use an SPF of at least 35
afterwards to avoid damage from sun exposure.
