E LIGHT IPL AND RF TREATMENTS
E-light is used for both skin rejuvenation and laser hair removal.
E-Light combines three advanced technologies: Bipolar RF + IPL + Skin Contact Cooling. Uncomfortable feeling during the IPL treatment will be decreased significantly and better results can be expected with the cooling system involved in E-light. Treatments are efficient in persons with any skin type, but who are not sun-tanned at the time of treatment.
IPL and RF treatments use light impulses, hair follicles, destroying them.
Treatments required are dependant on many factors, Gender, age, ethnic origin, diet, weight, hormones and metabolism are individual factors that have an impact on the result.
More information on the laser hair removal treatment procedure and what to expect:
Elight can be used :
– Few treatments required
– Safe and effectively
– Fast and easy
– Clinically proven
– Big areas
What can be expected of elight laser treatments:
– No system can claim to be definitive or to achieve a 100% successful results all the time.
– The efficacy of this type of treatment can be described as permanent or long lasting.
– It is possible to delay the appearance of new body hair, which will be finer and contain less pigment and of course can be made less dense.
– It is not possible to give exact amount of treatments required to achieve results, as there are important variations from person to person.
How does the IPL hair removal work:
– Targets the melanin in the hair
– Absorbed light is transferred into heat
– Heat is conducted in the hair follicle via the hair
– Destruction of the hair follicle
How to maximise your treatment:
In 30 days before treatment DO NOT
- Use tweezers
- Use depilatory creams
- Sunbathe or sunbed
– Some clients may experience a dark circle around the hair follicles. It will disappear within 4 days
– The hairs normally stay in the hair follicle 2-3 weeks after which you can expect a hair-free period mostly
– If you experience increased hair its due to synchronisation and should normalise after a few treatments
– Topical or systemic steroids or anti-inflammatory drugs
– Any disease or genetic condition causing photosensitivity
– Any medication causing photosensitivity
– Long term diabetes
Before you come in for treatment:
– Shave the area of treatment the day before or on the day to get the best possible results for treatment.
Treatments may vary among clients. For some this may mean a significant decrease in the frequency with which you must shave or tweeze. For others it may mean permanent cosmetic improvement because hair re-growth is minimal., very fine or completely absent. EVERYONE WILL EXPERIENCE SOME HAIR RE-GROWTH over time, regardless of the technology used. Hair that grows back will tend to be finer, lighter and less dense.

Permanent Hair Reduction: How does it work?
Intense Pulsed Light targets the colour pigment (melanin) in the hairs. But our unique machine the Elight system has and additional setting with RF (radio frequency) and therefore white hairs can now also be treated. Bear in mind that the lighter and softer hairs do take longer to remove than darker and courser hair. Dark hairs on fair skin have the best and quickest results. Fair hairs will require extra treatments with lesser results. Caution is required when treating hairs on darker skins; this is explained below and would be discussed more fully during your consultation.
The hair growth cycle:
Hairs grow in constant cycles: Firstly hairs are actively growing, then they become dormant (resting), and finally they loosen and shed, only to be replaced by more new, actively growing hairs.
Only hair follicles in the active growth stage are disabled by IPL treatments.
Hairs in the dormant stage of the growth cycle normally remain anchored in the follicles for weeks or months, depending on their location, but their follicles and associated hair germination cells are not disabled by IPL treatments. These follicles will be treated in subsequent sessions. This is why you need repeated sessions. Hair growth becomes sparser with each session. All treated hairs should shed within about two weeks.
PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION
A course of 5 to 12 treatments is usually required to treat hairs at all stages of the hair growth cycle, at 3 to 6 week intervals; which varies depending on hair type and colour, and the location being treated. Fair hairs will require extra treatments. A maintenance session may be necessary from time to time, due to the development of new hair growth appearing, as our hormonal balance continues to change with age, or due to the influence of stress, illness, disease and drugs i.e; steroids or contraceptive pills.
Do you experience amazing results with your first 1-4 sessions and then all of a sudden find that you have increased growth again and it feels more and finer (almost like baby hair)? this is why:
It is an occurrence in some individuals where it sometimes seem more and finer after their 4th session. what happens is the body is counter attacking the dead hair follicles by sprouting out new hairs from hair follicles that previously didn’t have hair. Our bodies actually have more follicles than what we have hair. so the dormant follicles gets boosted to sprout up new hair that previously did not have any hair. it is the bodies natural instinct to regenerate. that is why in some cases you will need more than 6 sessions with some maintenance every now and again to keep the follicles from growing new hair.
