  • How long does each treatment take?

    IPL hair removal treatments are incredibly quick to carry out and are great for those that are time-poor. For example, the average time for the treatment of one leg is six minutes. The exact time for each treatment is dependent on the area and type of hair that’s to be treated.

    The number of treatments that you’ll need is dictated by your hair type. In general, the thicker the hair, the more treatments are required.

  • Does it hurt?

    Absolutely not. Unlike other hair removal techniques, IPL hair removal is entirely pain-free. We use the latest IPL technology with an innovative inbuilt cooling system, so skin doesn’t become over-heated or uncomfortable.

  • How long do the results last?

    The results of IPL hair removal are permanent.

  • Will the area be painful after treatment?

    You will experience no pain after the treatment although you may experience some redness in and around the area that has been treated. Elite Body Treatment offers expert after-treatment advice to ensure any discomfort is avoided.
