Laser IPL Hair removal – a great option

There aren’t many of us who can hold their hands up and say that they aren’t tired of the constant battle with body hair (not to mention facial hair!). Which is why more and more of us are opting to be permanently hair-free, including so many celebrities who wouldn’t risk bumps and irritation from waxing or plucking.

After all, IPL Laser Hair Removal is a great option – it’s virtually pain free, safe and all areas of the face and body can be treated with excellent results.

IPL is not an instant result and needs to be taken as a series of treatments to be effective. The number of treatments required depends on the areas treated and the type of hair but normally around six to nine sessions are required for most clients. And so, with summer still months away, you can start the process now to be hair-free come beach season!

Beware cheap imitations

Good quality IPL hair removal isn’t cheap, but then again it shouldn’t be.  Top laser and IPL machines can cost up to £65K – they are safer, the power output is better controlled, there are more sophisticated filters to protect the skin and they are more efficient so less sessions are required to achieve results. On the other hand you may see some incredibly eye catching cheap prices offered in some salons and clinics for laser hair removal. This can often indicate more budget equipment – less safe, less controlled and less effective. At Zen we use only equipment from world leader Ellipse in Denmark;  we believe this is the best and safest equipment available.

I know I wouldn’t cut corners with my body and skin and like everything in life, you get what you pay for. At Zen, our therapists have been offering this laser hair removal for many years and are highly experienced and knowledgeable in permanent hair reduction.

IPL – a sound investment

And whilst it is an investment long term, when you compare it with the cost of a regular wax it does makes for a sound one. After all, the cost of becoming permanently hair-free on your bikini line is the equivalent of a year’s worth of bikini waxes – and I know which one I’d rather have!

If you haven’t been swayed, then I’m going to treat you. Our IPL Offer is back by popular demand. When you buy a course of 6 or more sessions you will save 30% on the session price and you can save up to 50% with multiple body areas.

For more information on IPL, please feel free to call or pop into any of our salons and our team will be able to answer your questions.
