Frequently asked questions

Please call us on 09 274 6833 or use our Contact Us form if you have any further questions.

  • How many treatments will I need?

    It's important to understand that one treatment will not be enough and that a course of treatments will be needed to catch the hairs in the growing stage. The number of treatments required varies from person to person. It's usually five to six treatments done at six-weekly intervals - some people will need less and some people may need more.

  • What happens during the consultation?

    The consultation is always an important part of the process. Your therapist will explain how the treatment works and what to expect during the treatment. You will also be given an indication of how many treatments will be needed.

    There will be some medical questions and a patch test to see how your skin and hair react to the treatment.

    The consultation is a good opportunity to ask any other questions you might have.

  • Why should I choose The Skin Science Clinic?

    Our Lumenis IPL machine is one of the best IPL machines available globally. It's safe and efficient medical grade technology that gives excellent results.

    Our therapists are fully trained with years of experience in IPL treatments and, as members of The NZ Association of Registered Beauty Professionals, you can be sure we operate to the highest standards.

  • How does IPL work to reduce the hair growth?

    The Lumenis IPL machine produces light and the heat generated is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair, the heat travels down to the hair root cauterising the blood supply and preventing the hair from growing again.

  • Does IPL hair reduction work on all skin tones?

    It works best on fair to medium skin tones with darker hair. It's not suitable for darker skin tones as the skin would absorb too much heat, nor is it suitable for those with very fair, white or grey hair as there isn't enough melanin to absorb sufficient heat to destroy the hair follicle.
