1. How does a Brazilian IPL in Singapore usually work?
Using “flash lamp” technology, it works by emitting multiple wavelengths of high-intensity light, which will disperse and heat up the strands in your follicles. The cells within your follicles also get warmed up and hence, are destroyed by the heat. This will then decelerate your hair growth and eventually stop it completely. Your entire nether region, including the labia, may be treated.
2. Is a laser hair removal treatment better than a Brazilian IPL in Singapore?
Yes, it may indeed be a much better solution. A laser procedure actually works on the same principle as an IPL procedure, whereby your follicles will be damaged by emitted heat. However, what makes a laser procedure unique is its power and precision.
The previous lacks a focused delivery and may contain other unnecessary wavelengths of energy, which then dilutes the overall effect of the procedure. On the other hand, a laser can be controlled more precisely and possesses far more power than the standard light procedure. Lasers can also penetrate deeper into your follicles than light energy. This is why laser are more effective and require fewer sessions to achieve completely hairless skin. If you want a quicker and more cost-effective option, laser energy may be your answer.
As light treatment delivers scattered wavelengths of energy onto your skin, the procedure can cause significant discomfort, especially for those with darker tones. This is why they are usually only performed on fairer tones, which will not get overheated by the light energy. Due to the precision and adaptability of a laser treatment, it can be used to treat a wider range of complexions without hurting or harming the surface. In fact, many people find that laser treatments are much more tolerable and comfortable than a light procedure.
3. How should I prepare for your procedure?
During the consultation with our qualified therapists, you are encouraged to be honest about any skin conditions that you might have. This is to ensure that your skin will not be aggravated further from the thermal effect.
Avoid getting a suntan (be it from direct sunlight or fake tanning) at least two weeks before. Lasers are designed to target pigment, so if you have dark pigment derived from prolonged sun exposure, the strong energy can overheat the surface. Dry skin will also be more prone to irritation when exposed to a stronger energy, so moisturise your skin daily in the weeks before.
Avoid waxing or plucking before the process. Instead, you are advised to shave your targeted areas a day before. It will heat up dark pigment, which includes your dark hair, so make sure that there is minimal hair sitting on the surface. The idea is to target the roots and the cells within your follicles instead of overheating the strands and causing pain in the process.
4. What are the steps involved?
Our qualified therapists will assess your skin on the day of the procedure and choose an appropriate setting for your skin type. A cold gel will be applied to maximise comfort throughout the treatment.
The handheld device will be sterilised before the process commences. This device will be applied, and you will start to feel a warm and slightly prickly sensation. Your therapist will periodically check the machine settings and ensure that you are feeling comfortable throughout.
The procedure may last for about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the surface area of your targeted regions. You will be given post-treatment care instructions, which can aid in your progress.
5. What results can I expect to see?
Within a few days after, you will notice that some hairs will have naturally fallen off from your follicles. For most clients, it may take several sessions for them to achieve significantly silky and hairless surface. Prominent results will come to fruition in just a few months and by the end of your full process, you can expect to see up to a 90 percent reduction in regrowth. In the future, hormonal changes or other factors may cause strands to grow out. However, even if this occurs, the strands that grow will be sparse, fine, and barely noticeable.
