We might be in the dead of winter right now, but global warming is truly throwing a wrench in the works, and Hong Kong has not even seen temperatures dip below 18 degrees Celsius this season yet. Women who live in colder climes will understand that one of winter’s greatest gifts is not needing to shave regularly when you’re all wrapped up in layers anyway. As we’re still running around town in skirts and sleeveless tops, it seems like Hongkongers can’t quite enjoy the same lazy luxury, but this is where IPL permanent hair removal can swoop in to save the day.
The award-winning French medi-spa EstheClinic is now open in Hong Kong! The company is a French family business established over 20 years ago by physicians, with locations in France, Singapore, and now Hong Kong—all still managed by the founders’ family members. Apart from their in-house treatments, the founders have also developed the cutting-edge technology used at EstheClinic, which have been distributed to doctors and dermatologists throughout Europe for over two decades.
They offer a full menu of highly effective, pain-free aesthetic treatments with zero downtime. The most popular procedure is undoubtedly IPL for permanent hair removal. Read on for a break down of everything you need to know, as well as a special offer!
EstheClinic’s IPL system at a glance
Silky Smooth Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal is a treatment to painlessly and effectively eradicate unwanted hair follicles and prevent regrowth. Using cutting-edge patented technology, this treatment is painless (no numbing cream needed!), twice as hardworking as traditional IPL systems—Silky Smooth is clinically proven to remove 80 to 90 percent of hair in just six to 10 sessions—and is safe for all skin phototypes, with minimal risks even for the darkest of skin tones.
A deeper look into the tech
For those who are more attuned to the world of IPL, MacPeel’s No Pain System (NPS) combines high average power, low fluency, and a high repetition rate. It gradually raises the heat of the dermis (read: the middle layer of your skin) to the temperature needed to effectively damage hair follicles. This prevents regrowth while not causing injury to the surrounding tissue.
Traditional IPL vs MacPeel’s NPS IPL
Unlike the static traditional IPL system, which delivers intense pulsed light in one sudden zap, MacPeel’s No Pain System IPL treatment is dynamic and utilises a handpiece that is constantly swept across the skin, effectively covering a larger surface area within a shorter amount of time. This dynamic nature, combined with the aforementioned high average power, low fluency, and high repetition rate, works to gradually increase the temperature of the hair follicle by stacking the IPL pulses. In simpler terms, this makes for a more comfortable treatment. Those who are squeamish about possible discomfort can breathe a sigh of relief as this technology also includes an integrated contact cooling system.
With MacPeel, it takes as little as six to eight sessions to remove 80 to 90 percent of hair permanently. These sessions will usually be spaced four to six weeks apart (dependent on hair and body type), with only two to three touch-up sessions per year needed over the following one or two years. This effectively means it is twice as fast as traditional IPL.
Painless, extra fast, effective, permanent, and suitable for all skin types in all seasons, MacPeel’s NPS efficiently removes unwanted hair in multiple areas so you can achieve the smooth and silky silhouette you desire.
