Though November is often more affectionately known as Growvember – the month of gnarly beards and moustaches trimmed into fabulous styles – not everyone can pull off the pose of stroking their upper-lip caterpillar whilst humming thoughtfully. Women especially seem to enjoy having a more smooth and fuzz-free face. While there are many accepted methods of ridding the lip of hair, ranging from the unorthodox use of raw broccoli florets to the shockingly painful waxing, none are so effective and permanent as IPL – or, Intense Pulsed Light.

By absorbing the energy of the pulsed light, the treatment is essentially destroying whatever follicles it comes into contact with – in a perfectly safe manner.
