ELLIPSE LIGHT (IPL)

Introducing a breakthrough in hair removal! Laser technology* now offers the safest, fastest and most effective method available to get rid of unwanted hair. This technology emits a light beam from the laser to the skin, causing the hair to absorb the light energy, damaging the follicle and prohibiting growth, without damaging the skin. The benefits of laser hair removal have made conventional hair removal methods obsolete. It is convenient - permanent hair loss means never having to shave, wax or tweeze again; and this technology can be used on all skin types and body areas for both men and women.

 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How should I prepare for my treatment?
Refrain from bleaching, tweezing or waxing of the area to be treated for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the first treatment. Alternative methods of hair management during this time are shaving, depilatory cream or trimming with manicure scissors. Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, tanning creams and self-tanning lotions that dye the skin for a minimum of 1 week prior to treatment and throughout the course of their laser treatments. Sun exposure and tanning decreases the effectiveness of the laser treatment. Please shave or use a depilatory cream in the area the day before your treatment. This is to remove surface hair from the treatment site. Thick overlying hair (if not shaved) will absorb laser energy increasing discomfort, as well as reducing the amount of energy absorbed by the hair follicle.

How permanent is laser hair removal?
The averages of patient in clinical studies have a 48% reduction in hair growth after three (3) treatments, and up to 80% lasting reduction after five (5) treatments. Any remaining hair will be finer and lighter in color after six (6) treatments. Most patients require one or two touch-up treatment per year. The permanent reduction of unwanted hair can be done in any body parts, and may be used for all ethnic groups, and skin colors including tanned skin.
