What Type of Hair Removal Treatment Should I Be Doing: Waxing, IPL and/or Electrolysis?

Different hair removal modalities are available depending on your requirements.

Waxing is typically more affordable and is great for all types and colours of hair, but does not offer long term reduction. Most clients need to attend waxing appointments every 4 to 6 weeks.

IPL is fantastic for darker hair and offers long term reduction with multiple sessions required. At Botanique we use “E-Light” Super Hair Removal – the next level of technology, allowing for individual configuration to suit different skin and hair types. 

Your treating therapist holds a Graduate Certificate in IPL/Laser Therapies and is fully trained in the use of the machines.

Electrolysis is your go to if you have single hairs that won’t budge, grey or red hair so its’ wonderful for smaller patch areas such as lip, chin and underarms. Multiple sessions are also required however you will get permanent hair ‘removal’ rather than ‘reduction’. 

Remember, hair growth is cyclical, as hair follicles go through resting and growing phases. Resting hair follicles need to enter the growth phase before they can be effectively destroyed. This is why it is necessary to repeat the removal treatment at intervals if you opt for IPL and/or Electrolysis.

Most people will have effective hair reduction with each treatment, with very little regrowth after the course of treatments is done.  Some will get complete hair reduction with no or minimal regrowth, while others will require a yearly maintenance treatment.  Any regrowth of hair will be weak, thin, and lighter in colour, due to the damaged hair follicles.
