IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is non-invasive and a non-ablative cosmetic technology used for Laser Hair Reduction and a range skin treatments. 

At Mud Day Spa we pride ourselves on delivering our clients a variety of services in the one vicinity. Therefore we chose a secondgeneration broad spectrum IPL machine that is highly effective at treating multiuple skin concerns such as wrinkles pigmentation, veins and unwanted hair as opposed to a laser machine that often treats only one concern such as hair removal.

Our second generation IPL machine is an effective state of the art, medical grade system. It works very similar to laser however it delivers multiple wavelengths and scattering affect allowing us to effectively treat a variety of skin concerns and hair types. Our machine also has a powerful integrated cooling device allowing your hair reduction treatments to be almost completly pain free and more tollarable methood of delivering amazing results as opposed to other laser systems available. 

The outcomes of the multiple wavelength IPL system means we are able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles through skin rejuvenation and collagen induction therapy, reduce and heal acne, open pores and scars, visibly remove pigentation, vascular lesions, broken capillaries, and target not only corse dark hair but significantly reduce fairer fine hairs that lasers struggle to find.

The second generation IPL system produces a broad spectrum of Intense Pulsed Light through it's hand piece. The combination of the light transmission scattering through the layers of the skin, stimulates the bodies natural collagen induction response with every treatment. Occouring regardless of what concerns are being treated ie hair or pigmentation. This transpires due to the warming and stimulating the skin cells in the lower level, also known as the dermis. This stimulation then causes the regeneration of the overall appearance and texture of the skin through renewal of the elasticity resulting in exceptional treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, open pores and scars.

Hair folicles, vascular lesions, wrinkles, scars, acne and pigmentation occour within different layers of the skin. Meaning the use of our second generation IPL system allows us to deliver optimal results in the treatment of a number of skin concerns for our clients due its multiwavelength approach.

All hair removal lasers can only target and remove hairs in a particular phase of their growth cycle. Therefore, at any one treatment session, certain hairs will be dormant and not able to be treated. Because of this, multiple treatments are usually necessary to ensure all hair follicles are eventually caught at the right time in their cycle and removed by treatment. Most people benefit best from 6 to 8, 8-12 treatments, depending on hair thickness, the size of the area and the hair’s growth cycle. In saying this, most patients should see around 30% reduction in just one treatment.

It is important to note each skin and hair type can have a different reaction to the pulsed light as the light penetrates the tissue differntly according to skin colour, hair colour, present pigmentation and hair thickness. Therefore mention hormones!! 

Treatments are performed at 4-6 week intervals depending on your hair growth. These treatments will be spaced out further apart as your hair growth becomes finer and slower over time. 


Results are generally seen after your first session with Mud Day Spa.


Post treatment, the hairs singe into the hair follicle staying like this for up to 10-14days, they will naturally fall out on their own leaving you with a hair free period until your next treatment. As your growth starts to come through, it becomes finer, slower and more sporadic. Slight follicle swelling, mild erythema can occur similar to a post waxing however this generally lasts for only an hours or so after your treatment. In some cases swelling and erythema can last up to 72 hours however this is not too common. Residual warmth/stinging sensation, is expected and normally the lesion will dry up and shed within a few days. Increased pigmentation is expected and will usually go away after a few days. Blister formation may occur within a few days. Apply a compress to dry the blister, followed by the regular application of antibiodic ointment. 

You must always shave down the treatment area 24-48hours prior to your appointment to ensure for best results. No sun exposure, solarium or tan is to be applied to the treatment area 2 weeks prior to your treatment. Do not wax or tweeze for four weeks prior to your treatment. 

Sun exposure must be avoided for 1 week post treatment, no creams, moisturisers or gels on the treatment area for 1 week post treatment. If so, follicle swelling, irritation and infection can occur. We always suggest to begin exfoliating the treatment area 1 week post treatment to encourage the hair growth to fall out of the hair follice and to avoid ingrown hairs.
