Home use IPL (Intense Pulse Light) recommends continued, on going treatment of the area every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth. This is because IPL doesn't destroy the hair root, so regrowth will occur if the treatment is not repeated every two weeks. Laser Hair Removal technology actually destroys the hair root giving permanent hair reduction. LASER HAIR REMOVAL EXPLAINED Lasers deliver an intense beam of light which are made up of a single wavelength or colour.Skin is essentially transparent to light with a wavelength of 808 (nano meters), while melanin containing structures will absorb laser energy of this wavelength. It is therefore possible to target the hair follicle that has a concentration of melanin without affecting the surrounding area. The light energy absorbed by the melanin pigment results in the rapid heating up of the hair follicle. This heat destroys the cells (papilla) responsible for hair growth. If adequate heating is achieved, then the follicle is permanently disabled resulting in a permanent reduction in hair growth.
Note: This is different from home IPL (Intense Pulse Light) which requires continued treatments every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth. SUITABLE SKIN TYPES Melanin in the epidermis also absorbs the energy and limits the depth of penetration of the laser light into the skin. Using a light wavelength of 808nm enables treatment of relatively dark skin as well as fair-skinned types. However, laser hair treatment is not suitable for Afro Caribbean or black skin complexions. Laser treatment is also ineffective in removal of white or grey hair.Electrolysis should be considered as an alternative treatment. HOW TO USE Obviously read and understand the Information Guide provided before you get started and watch the step-by-step DVD for great tips and techniques.
For best results we recommended that you use the unit on hairs that have been trimmed to 1mm-2mm in length. 24 hours before treatment it is very important to do a patch test. The patch test will confirm the maximum power level for your skin type. Each area to be treated must be checked as skin colour can vary. By using the +/- buttons to select the correct power level for your skin type you're ready to go.Press the enable button once and place the wand on your skin then press and hold the laser button on the wand to zap the hair. You can move onto the next hair to be targeted. Treated hairs don't fall out immediately but are shed over time as they are released from the hair follicle so be patient. Laser hair removal is generally considered to be effective after 6 treatments over a 6-month period. IPL (Intense Pulse Light) home approved products generally require ongoing treatments every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LASER HAIR REDUCTION.
How do I choose between Laser technology and IPL (Intense Pulse Light)? With IPL in the home the hair root is not destroyed and as such you are required to retreat each area every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth. With Laser technology the hair root is destroyed giving permanent hair reduction.How should I prepare my skin and hairs for laser hair removal? Laser hair removal does not require any special skin preparations. Laser hair removal is most effective on pale skin so we recommend avoiding sunbathing, sun beds and fake tanning if possible The best results are on hairs which are only 1-3 mm long, we recommend trimming the hairs before treatment. Alternatively, you can shave before treatment as long as the hair is still visible at the root. How will my skin appear after the treatment? Generally no perceptible changes will be apparent. A slight redness after treatment may occur but will normally fade over 24 hours.
Any localised redness after treatment is caused by the destruction of the hair follicles and is quite normal. What areas can I treat? Most body hair can be removed using Laser Hair Removal - the most common areas are the face, underarms, legs, chest, back and bikini line.
We do NOT recommend using laser hair removal on eyebrows. How often can I repeat the treatment? As long as the hair follicle or surrounding skin is not red, sore or inflamed, treatment can be repeated after 24 hours.
Most people wait 3-4 weeks between treatments to see which hairs have been shed and to identify new re-growth. H ow many treatments will I need? Laser hair removal is generally considered to be effective after 6 treatments over a 6 month period. This varies from person to person and the area being treated, hair density, hair growth cycle and colour. Dark hair on fair skin responds best, but both dark and fair hair may take several treatments for long-term results.Some individuals may require more, and some fewer treatments, to achieve satisfaction. Initially you will notice a gradual reduction of the number of hairs. Women who suffer excessive hair growth due to male type hormones are likely to require long term maintenance. Can I use other hair removal methods between treatments? Laser hair removal needs a hair to be present in the follicle, hair removal methods which pluck the hair, such as waxing, epilators and tweezing are NOT suitable for use between treatments. Bleaching hairs is also NOT suitable as it removes the pigment and renders the laser ineffective. Shaving, micro-dermabrasion discs and cream depilatories are ideal for use between treatments.
Is there any aftercare routine I should follow? Sun exposure or deep tanning should be avoided for at least a week.
If the skin is exposed use a sunscreen. Also avoid using abrasive cleansers or skin peeling treatments. Avoid swimming in chlorinated water or using a hot tub for 48 hours.
