Laser / IPL
Laser Hair Removal
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light technology. IPL hair removal devices apply very gentle pulses of light to the hair root. This makes the hair go into its resting phase: the hair you have falls out, and gradually your body grows less hair in that area.
Laser Hair Removal
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It’s a type of light therapy used to treat wrinkles, spots, and unwanted hair.
You can use IPL not only for lasering away unwanted hair but also to minimize or remove:
- age spots
- sun damage
- varicose veins
- broken blood vessels on your face
- hair on your face, neck, back, chest, legs, underarms, or bikini line
How Does It Work?
IPL is similar to a laser treatment. However, a laser focuses just one wavelength of light at your skin, while IPL releases light of many different wavelengths, like a photo flash.
The light from IPL is more scattered and less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to the second layer of your skin (dermis) without harming the top layer (epidermis), so it causes less damage to your skin.
Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy, which is converted into heat. The heat destroys the unwanted pigment to clear up freckles and other spots. Or, it destroys the hair follicle to prevent the hair from growing again.
You can use IPL anywhere on your body, but it may not work as well on uneven areas. It isn’t recommended for people who tend to get thick, raised keloid scars or who have darker skin tones. It’s also not as effective on light-colored hair as it is on darker hair.
How Does It Work?
Before your clients IPL procedure, you will need to examine the skin and let them know what to expect. Let them know if they have any skin conditions that might affect healing after their treatment, such as inflammatory acne or eczema.
You will be asking client to complete a Fitzpatrick skin typing form as well as a medical history form before you book them for a patch test and consultation.
Do I need to bring a model?
No as the course is designed so that you will be working on each other.

So many of our clients have told just the reason for the popularity of our courses is due to the fact that our certification works on the basis that you are not tied to any specific brand. You are taught the skill set then you can use any brand to then go on and do the treatment with your own chosen brands. Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.
Do I need to be in the medical profession?
This course is open to complete beginners or existing therapists, no previous massage experience required to attend.
