Hi Tori, thank you for the question.
The use of IPL or laser hair removal is a very effective and safe way of permanent hair reduction. However this treatment (and its results and safety profile) is dependent on the type of machine used and the person operating the machine.
Technology based hair removal will increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun but this is only for the 2 weeks following the treatment.
Prices will vary from person to person but expect to pay between R 850.00 to R 1500.00.
FDA approved machines include (but are not limited) to Syneron, Alexandrite, Lumenis, & Palomar.
