Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Palomar StarLux 500?

The Palomar StarLux 500 is one of the most powerful and effective Intense Pulse Light (IPL) hair reduction treatments available.


Safe, fast and effective, it removes hair while keeping your skin protected.*


*Individual results may vary


Also more affordable than other laser treatments, you can stop worrying about constant upkeep and start enjoying the freedom of smooth, hairless skin.*


*Individual results may vary

How does it work?

The StarLux 500 uses high-powered light pulses to target melanin in your hair follicles. The melanin absorbs this light, which damages the hair follicle and inhibits hair growth to leave you with hair-free skin for longer.*


*Individual results may vary


The high-tech cooling system cools the skin before, during and after the laser pulse. This helps minimise unnecessary skin exposure to the laser while enhancing your comfort.*


*Individual results may vary


Delivering 70% more power than other IPL systems, a single session takes less than an hour out of your busy day.

Who is it for?

If you’re tired of repeatedly shaving and waxing, the StarLux 500 IPL hair removal treatment is for you.


As the device’s energy is attracted to the pigment of hair, the StarLux 500 is best suited for those with light skin and dark hair.*


*Individual results may vary


It is used to treat the following areas:

• Head*
• Back*
• Chest*
• Arms*
• Legs*


*Individual results may vary


The StarLux 500 System may not be suitable for you if you have:

• A history of herpes (cold sores or genital)
• Recently bleached, plucked or waxed hair
• Tanned or darker skin colouring

What are the side-effects?

The sensation of IPL hair removal is often described as similar to the snap of a thin rubber band, with many patients opting for no anaesthesia. And thanks to the advanced cooling system we use, many report no discomfort.*


*Individual results may vary


Your treated area may become slightly red after the IPL sessions. However, this will naturally resolve in a few minutes to several days – depending on your skin sensitivity.*


*Individual results may vary

What are the risks?

In general, as long as you have no underlying medical conditions, skin diseases or infections, and have not had recent sun exposure, the StarLux 500 IPL hair removal treatment is risk-free.*


*Individual results may vary


Your practitioner will take a full medical history to evaluate your suitability as some medications, particularly those causing photosensitivity may impair your eligibility for treatment.

How long does it last?

Although the effects of IPL hair removal are long-lasting, it will not remove all hairs forever, as hormone production in the body will always effect and stimulate some hairs.* However, results can be managed with a follow-up treatment once every 6-12 months.*


*Individual results may vary

How many treatments will I need?

For treatment areas above the neck we usually recommend eight sessions with 4 week intervals between each. Longer intervals of 6 weeks are recommended for the body area.


However, everyone’s skin is different. That’s why we’ll assess your skin and hair colour and give you a realistic expectation of your outcome with IPL hair removal.

How much does it cost?

IPL hair removal requires a series of sessions to ensure long-term hair reduction. The prices below are per session, however a 10% discount will be added to those who prepay packages of eight or more treatments.


After eight consecutive sessions, we offer a further 20% discount on any future maintenance.
