LASER HAIR REMOVAL E-light ( IPL + RF)
The E-light treatment works by targeting the melanin (pigment) in the hair with light from the system. Upon absorption the light is converted into heat. This intense heat action breaks down the hair follicle, reducing the opportunity for any re-growth and also changing the entire structure of the follicle itself; overtime altering the density and appearance of the hair until it becomes unnoticeable.
Prior to treatment the area is shaved before a thin layer of protective/conductive gel (similar to that used in ultra sound) is applied to maximize absorption.The E-light is run over the area and a succession of light pulses are filtered into the hair follicle. The unique square head technology used in IPL treatments offer precision and accuracy that ensures that any risk of side effects is minimal. Any potentially harmful wave lengths are removed via the Unique Dual Filtering system, meaning that the light used is completely safe and visible.
Number of Hair Removal Treatments
Hair grows in three different cycles and the
IPL Permanent Hair Reduction can only
successfully treat hair during its growth
stage. Therefore it is often necessary to
undergo a course of 3-6 treatments
ensuring that you leave at least 6-8 weeks
between each session initially, and then only repeat as and when the hair returns.
Preparing for Laser Hair Removal
To ensure that as many hair follicles are
targeted as possible it is also important not to undergo any hair removal for at least four weeks before the appointment or during the course of treatment. The same rule applies to any sun treatments, as a tan will raise the pigment level in the skin and have a severe effect on the treatments’ success. Skin type is a fundamental factor in this treatment. Due to the high level of pigment in the skin, darker skin tones often experience more pain during treatment, though generally it has been compared to the sensation of a rubber band pinging on your skin.
