IPL, or intense pulsed light, uses a broad spectrum of high-intensity light, which is emitted at multiple wavelengths, to target and destroy hair follicles, thereby reducing renewed hair growth over time. IPL can be very efficient at effecting long term, permanent hair reduction but, due to the very precise nature of the technology, it is imperative to ensure your therapist is professionally trained to operate the equipment.
At Advanced Medispa Perth, our fully qualified Dermal Therapists have specialist training in IPL hair removal to ensure you receive the maximum treatment benefits whilst maintaining the highest standards of safety and comfort. Also offering complete cosmetic and general dentistry services, the facilities at Advanced Medispa are meticulously maintained and we are committed to utilising the latest technology to offer a broad range of cosmetic and dermal therapies.
Having performed IPL hair removal on hundreds of clients at our Perth clinics, our caring Dermal Therapists employ the latest techniques to ensure your experience is not only effective, but also as comfortable as possible.
IPL hair removal relies on multiple wavelengths of light which convert to heat and target the melanin in hair follicles, resulting in destruction of the cells responsible for producing new hair growth. Modern CUTERA XEO IPL technology tends to be much gentler than laser for hair removal and, unlike the IPL machines of old, can successfully treat hundreds of hair follicles at a time.
Like laser technology, IPL is only capable of targeting hairs which are in their active growth phase which, at any given time, can range from 10% to 30%. For this reason, whilst active hair follicles are destroyed using IPL resulting in immediate hair reduction, multiple treatments are required for complete hair removal.
If you’re considering hair removal options in Perth, IPL tends to be a very cost-effective option. The experienced professionals at Advanced Medispa can provide a thorough analysis of your concerns and recommend a treatment plan designed to deliver the best results for you. Contact one of our three Perth locations to find out whether IPL hair removal is right for you.
Your IPL hair removal process will begin at Advanced Medispa Perth with our qualified Dermal Therapist performing a thorough analysis of your specific concerns and overall goals. A tailored treatment plan will then be put together to maximise your benefits in the most cost-effective way. Depending on the area to be treated, IPL hair removal sessions can last from a few minutes up to around an hour. For best results, skin should not be tanned at the time of treatment and sunburned skin cannot be treated until fully healed (this maybe 8 weeks after tanning or sunburn). It is not necessary to let hairs continue growing prior to an IPL treatment however hair roots must still be present so, whilst shaving in the lead-up to your session is fine, waxing should not be performed.
During the treatment, our experienced Dermal Therapist will use the IPL hand piece placed over one area at a time then activate the light waves to target hairs within that area. The hand piece is moved after each light pulse is delivered to a new area until the entire area of concern has been covered. IPL tends to be a gentler approach to hair removal than laser and most clients find they can tolerate the treatment quite easily.
One of the benefits of IPL technology is that it can be used, not only for hair removal, but also to treat a number of other skin concerns such as broken capillaries and hyperpigmentation. So, if you’re looking for long-term hair removal in Perth and would also like to address other skin concerns at the same time, contact Advanced Medispa to find out more.
When administered by a trained professional, IPL technology is a safe and effective option for permanent hair removal. Whilst the IPL machine generates heat to destroy hair follicles, modern machines are equipped with a cooling mechanism built into the hand piece which helps to reduce any discomfort caused by the treatment. IPL hair removal treatments can feel a bit like a rubber band being very lightly snapped against the skin, but with our sophisticated CUTERA XEO IPL machine, most clients find the level of discomfort minimal and far less painful than that associated with waxing.
At Advanced Medispa, our caring Dermal Therapists employ the latest techniques to ensure your IPL hair removal treatment delivers maximum benefits whilst minimising discomfort as much as possible.

I have been going here for the last two years. The service is excellent and professional, and everyone is always so friendly.
I booked in with Ellysia to have a Hydra Facial and it has been only 24 hours and I am so impressed with the results already. My face and neck feel absolutely amazing! It is fresh and soft and just looks like it has been completely rejuvenated after one treatment. On top of my amazing new skin I got to spend an hour with Ellysia chatting away about everything and anything. The treatment was easy, quick and pain free! I am already booking in the chemical peel which compliments this treatment and am so looking forward to it! Thank you so much for the amazing experience!
Very friendly staff who treated me well and provided a professional service with the care and understanding of my concerns. Great after care service too. Would recommend to anyone.
