The latest generation of IPL devices have demonstrated outstanding success in permanent hair removal in clinical studies and long-term tests compared to older generations of IPL and laser systems. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. This pulsed light is generated using highly energetic xenon (a noble gas). Xenon has the characteristic of producing white, i.e. broadband, light that encompasses all wavelengths. By using special filters, the wavelengths of this "white light" are split into so-called wavelength windows or spectra. The pulsed light devices also have precisely definable parameter profiles of variable pulse duration and pulse sequence. This allows a wide range of treatments for permanent hair removal and skin treatments of all kinds.

However, Beechdown has overcome this by investing in the first pain-free IPL machine available in the UK. IPL can treat most skin types and hair colours.
Beechdown Beauty offers FREE consultations and patch tests to ensure treatments will be successful and clients understand the process.
