VPL – Long Term Hair Reduction

VPL Hair Removal

We offer permanent hair reduction using VPL Light therapy or more commonly known as IPL. This treatment provides a dramatic reduction of hair growth in the area treated. The treatment we use is an intense pulsed light that is attracted to melanin (pigment) in the hair. (This treatment is not suitable for blonde or grey hairs) This treatment is great for larger areas and hairs that are close together i.e. Underarms, bikini line, upper lip and dark facial hair.


This is fantastic for people who suffer from ingrown hairs between waxing or develop a rash after every shave or are looking for a long term solution. In most cases 6-8 treatments are needed for optimum results and visits are recommended 4-12 weeks apart.


Once the desired results are achieved we recommend a maintenance program to maintain these results.


VPL Rejuvenation

VPL Rejuvenation treatment helps to wake up the Fibroblast cells and enables the cells to produce high quality collagen (women 25 years of age Fibroblast Cells go to sleep which slows down the production to collagen and elastin – that gives our skin that plump and taught feeling)


VPL Rejuvenation also reduces uneven skin tone and sun damage.


Great treatment for anti – aging and helping the skin to glow! This treatment is recommended for the face, chest and also the back of hands and arms.
