Hair removal: Frequently Asked Questions

How does Lynton Lasers IPL work for Hair Removal?

IPL hair removal works by passing a light beam through the unwanted hair area, which is then absorbed by the pigment (colour) within the hair shaft and hair follicle. This generates heat, which loosens the hair and disables the hair forming cells.

How many treatments will be needed?
Clinical observations have indicated that a course of 6 treatments should initially be scheduled for the client and these should be performed once a month. In some cases up to 10 treatments may be required to achieve results. Each patient is then likely to require a regular maintenance treatment – the frequency of this will depend on an individual condition but is usually performed every 1 – 3 months.

Is there a minimum age for IPL treatments?
We are able to treat anyone from the age of 18 upwards.

Does IPL hurt?
Not really, although the treatment sensation will vary from client to client. Mostly you will experience a tingling sensation or at most, like an elastic band momentarily flicking onto your skin. There are no lasting sensations.

Important requirements before & during all IPL Treatments
No UV exposure (natural or suntan beds) for 4-6 weeks before and throughout the treatment course, to reduce the melanin content of the skin and minimise possible side-effects from this. This is not just what clients would classify as sunbathing, but lengthy exposure to normal daylight. Thus it is recommended that SPF30 is used daily on all exposed treatment areas. Self-tanning creams also produce increased skin colour and if used between treatments, should be stopped a week prior to each treatment and exfoliation of the area should be performed each day to remove this artificial colour.

What kind of precautions would I need to take after treatment?
For 24 hours after treatment you should avoid: HOT baths & showers, make-up and deodorant, which may irritate the treated area. It is also advised that the treated area should not be exposed to sunlight for 4 weeks after treatment. If this is unavoidable the area should be covered or a total sunblock (SPF30) used.

Red Vein Removal

Facial thread veins or broken red veins (telangiectasia) are small unsightly superficial red, purple or blue veins that occur around the nose and across the cheeks and chin. These broken veins occur when the vein dilates and become larger so they are visible through the transparency of the skin. Although facial veins / spider veins are quite common they can cause some distress and embarrassment for those who have them.

Facial veins may be hereditary or as a result of a variety of factors including damage from sun exposure, wind and the extremes of temperature. The over use of steroid creams and certain auto immune conditions may also induce thread veins. Often the exact cause is unknown and may just be part of the natural ageing process or as a part of a skin condition called rosacea.

Facial vessels are effectively treated with Intense Pulse Light (IPL) or laser with minimal downtime or risk in just a few quick, easy treatments.

Treatment is suitable for you if you want to:

  • Reduce overall facial redness and reduce blushing
  • Be rid of embarrassing broken veins or red spots
  • Have clearer, brighter, fresher looking skin
  • Suitable for face, neck and chest

Frequently Asked Questions

How are thread veins treated?
Both Intense Pulse Light and laser systems emit light which is readily absorbed by blood vessels, heating them to point where they are destroyed. Following treatment, the vessels quickly clear as they are reabsorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion. For Intense Pulsed Light treatment a thin layer of chilled gel is applied to the skin to aid light absorption by the vessel. The light is then pulsed over the entire area to be treated. The chilled gel is removed and the area cooled. A similar process is carried out for laser treatment except the chilled gel is not required. During the treatment, protective eyewear will be worn.

How many treatments are necessary?
Typically three to four treatments are needed for maximum results, though small lesions may clear in just a single session. For general redness and rosacea five or more treatments may be required. Repeat sessions are spaced every four to six weeks.

How long does each treatment take?
Treatment is relatively quick and can be just 10 minutes for a single lesion or up to 45 minutes for a full face.

How long do the results last?
Immediately after treatment some thread veins will disappear but may re-occur a few days later, but be less visible. With further treatment these vessels will disappear and are not likely to reoccur. However, once you have a tendency to facial redness you always will so new veins may appear at some point in the future making further treatment necessary. Maintenance sessions may not be required for several years though as results are long-lasting. To help prevent new veins forming we strongly advise the use of a good sunscreen such as ‘Radical Defence’ to protect the skin from damage.

What does treatment feel like?
Treatment is mildly uncomfortable but there is no need for anaesthesia and the procedure is actually quite quick. Sensations vary but most people describe it as a very quick, hot pin prick.
