IPL permanent hair removal at MBNS and Qutis Clinics

February 26th, 2014

Here at MBNS Clinic in Thame, and Qutis Clinics, we have been helping clients get rid of their unwanted hair for over  many years with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Permanent Hair Removal.  The treatment is very straightforward and liberating for those who thought that they would have to shave or wax for the rest of their lives!

In order to be a successful candidate for IPL Permanent Hair Removal you have to adhere to the following:

1.  No active suntan – that includes fake tan such as Fake Bake or sunbed use.  This is because the light that removes the hair at the follicle is attracted to the pigment in the hair,  but if you have a tan, it will see the whole area as pigment, and you may experience a burn.

2.  Avoid usage of St John’s Wort for a month before treatment.   This homeopathic anti-stress remedy can make you light sensitive, and again, you could burn.

Treatment for IPL is spaced six weeks apart if the hair being removed is on the face and twelve weeks apart if treatment is on the body.  This is the length of a complete hair cycle.

Here below is a video of the treatment itself by one of our nurses – it is quick, easy and effective.  You really can say goodbye to unwanted hair for good.

It has been reported in the Daily Mail online today that Victoria Beckham no longer shaves her legs and now has laser hair removal! Advised by her friend Eva Longoria, Mrs B now has smooth legs and wastes no more of her valuable time on daily shaving!

Well, we could have told her that years ago!  At MBNS Clinic in Thame, we have been treating clients for removal of unwanted hair for over 17 years now and the results are permanent and freeing!

Clients require several treatments (spaced 12 weeks apart on the body, or 6 weeks apart on the face, as that is the length of a complete hair cycle).  Once the hair has diminished, you are left with smooth, hassle free legs plus time to get on with other things such as launching your designer clothing label or running four miles a day, such as Victoria!

It is also great to see how clients help us do our job by referring our clinic to their friends, much as Eva advised Victoria about going to have IPL laser hair removal.  The best advertisement for us at MBNS is happy clients sharing their experiences with friends, resulting in them having a little ‘thank you” from us in the form of a £50 voucher to put towards their next treatment (after their friend has had their first treatment).

If you would like to find out more regarding IPL Permanent Hair Removal or any of the other treatments such as dermal fillers or maybe wrinkle reduction offered at MBNS Clinic in Thame by our specialist nurses, why not call us now on 01844 213007 or fill out the form HERE and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Ladies! – yes I said ‘ladies’… Say goodbye to Movember’s facial hair with permanent hair removal at MBNS.

article-2487792-1934B72C00000578-49_306x423‘I have a moustache, I might as well raise some money with it!’: Woman who has to shave beard every day ditches razor for Movember

Source:  the Daily Mail – read full article HERE

  • Movember fundraiser Sarah O’Neill, 29, from Hull, has unwanted facial hair that used to embarrass her – and brother even called her Mac3, after the razor! 
  • Now she wants to banish the myth that only men grow moustaches

Stop the press!  We can help here!….Surely women are not willing to put up with their facial hair?  We can understand people raising money for a great cause, but really!

This is a bit of a sensitive subject, (and one that many women do not like to admit to), but we have to face facts that many women do have facial hair and some even have to shave daily to remove it!  However, help is at hand!

At MBNS clinic in Thame we have a fantastic treatment called Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL).  This treatment uses light waves to remove hair permanently at the follicle in a few sessions spaced 6 weeks apart. You can finally say  “NO MORE” to plucking, shaving, waxing or in-grown hairs!

In order to have great results in permanent hair removal, you need to check the following guidelines:

1.  The hair needs to have some pigment (colour) to it so it can be seen by the light

2.  Your skin must be tan free and fake tan free

3.  You must stop taking St John’s Wort  a month prior to treatment ( it can make the skin sensitive to the light)

Most skin types are successful with IPL treatment and we treat body hair also.   These treatments ( such as underarm or bikini areas) are spaced 12 weeks apart. Here’s an interesting fact:

Did you know that an actual hair cycle on the face is 6 weeks and on the body it is 12 weeks?

Many may think that their hair grows quicker than that, as they seem to be plucking daily, but  IPL treatments kills the whole hair cycle. So once treated , the hair falls out over the next 2 to 10 days, then you are hair free until the next hair cycle starts.  The treatments are 6 weeks apart for the face and 12 weeks apart for the body, which means  you are getting to the root of the problem (pardon the pun) and the results are permanent!

So if you would like to find out more about permanent hair removal, kindly call us now on 01844 213007 or fill out the form HERE and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Unsightly facial hair can be a thing of the past – and our nurse specialists are here to help you today!  We do have  a few appointment spaces before Christmas left to fill, so start your New Year’s resolution early and let waxing and plucking  and even shaving be a thing of the past!
