IPL for Hair Reduction
IPL for Hair Reduction

Removing unwanted hair can be quite the ordeal – there are drawbacks to almost every method, whether it’s razor burn or skin irritation from creams or waxes. And it’s only ever a temporary fix – until now.


IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light – and if you have more hair than you’d like to see, it’s an ideal long-term solution to your problem. At Skin Institute, the areas we most commonly treat are the face, underarms, bikini line and legs – and the process is most effective on darker hair and fair skin.



Enjoy a FREE cosmetic consultation with an Advanced Skin Therapist, plus receive 20% OFF your first skin* treatment. Offer only available 7 Mar – 3 Apr 2022 at selected Skin Institute clinics. Ts&Cs apply.

What’s so great about the Skin Institute’s multi-disciplinary approach is that we can offer patients the whole package – from education, to treatment, to follow up care.

Pulses of non invasive light safely penetrate the skin and are selectively absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles. This raises the temperature of the hair follicles and destroys them without damaging the skin.


The IPL Hair reduction treatment generally is well tolerated. The sensation is likened to a hot flicking rubber band. Taking paracetamol 30 minutes prior may help with discomfort.

Due to the stages of hair growth not all hairs will be treated in one session and multiple treatments are usually required. 4-8 treatments are typical to achieve optimal results. Maintenance after the course of treatment may be required.

The sessions takes anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes, and you will be booked for a follow-up in 6 weeks.
