PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL

Permanent Hair Removal

By Energist Ultra VPL™ System

 

What is Ultra VPL™ Pulsed Light?

Ultra VPL™ uses evolved light technology to deliver a sequence of rapid pulses of light energy to the skin for hair reduction and skin rejuvenation.

Unlike other pulsed light devices, the Ultra VPL™ carefully balances the number, length and frequency of the individual pulses of light within each visible shot – hence the term Variable Pulsed Light.

The flexibility of this system guarantees clients will be treated with the optimum individual settings for their skin and hair type.

Ultra VPL™ treatments are not invasive, and the unique variable pulses have been clinically proven to achieve fantastic results on hair removal and successfully treat a wide a variety of skin imperfections.

What can Ultra VPL™ Treat?

Unwanted hair from all parts of the face and body: The Ultra VPL™ treatment has been clinically proven to remove hair from all parts of the face and body.

Laser and Pulsed Light (VPL) Hair Removal is still the most requested aesthetic treatment in clinics and salons worldwide - it is a safe and proven method for the long term removal of unwanted hair, supported by numerous clinical studies.

When it comes to laser and light-based hair removal, UK Manufacturer Energist is a name you can trust - We have been designing and manufacturing hair removal lasers and IPL systems for more than 15 years - in fact, among our directors we have one of the original team who discovered that lasers could be effective for hair removal. All of our lasers & pulsed light systems, which are used by professionals worldwide, are FDA cleared and pass stringent testing and inspections to be badged as CE marked medical products.

Both laser and pulsed light systems are suitable for the effective, long term removal of unwanted hair, and being at the forefront of both technologies Energist has developed advanced technologies to maximize the comfort, speed and effectiveness of the treatment, whatever your skin tone.

How it works?

Energist systems use short, safe, controlled pulses of laser or light to remove unwanted hair quickly and effectively. Carefully selected and specific wavelengths are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process produces heat, which heats the hair, damaging the follicle along with its ability to regenerate. Hundreds of hair follicles are treated with each pulse, making this a fast and effective way to treat unwanted hair.

This fast, effective and safe treatment offers an unsurpassed long-lasting hair removal solution, and with Energist systems, even darker skin tones can be treated, which is not possible with many similar technologies.

Your hair type will be determined at your initial consultation and a test patch will be performed using the system settings that best suit your individual features. The hair covering the treatment area will be trimmed and a cooling gel applied ensuring that the light is used effectively, to give maximum results from your Energist treatment. The Energist applicator will be placed on the area of your skin to be treated.

Your skin will then be exposed to a series of light pulses, flashing in rapid succession. The treatment is fast and can take as little as five minutes.

Hairs treated will fall out naturally over a period of one to three weeks leaving your skin feeling smooth and looking silky.

Due to the growth stages that all hair goes through, several treatments may be required to help prevent hair growth in the treatment area. You will be advised on how many treatments are likely to be needed.

All hair growth cycles are slightly different and some women, at a mature stage in their life, will sometimes find that some small hairs will appear gradually over time due to increased hormone activity.

Frequently Asked Questions –

The Energist ULTRA™ VPL System

Q: What makes this System special?

A: Traditionally, most cosmetic procedures have been associated with lasers. As technology has progressed, research has shown that Intense Pulsed Light units, and in particular Variable Pulsed Light (VPL™) Systems, are regularly producing better results than the laser systems originally available. Pulsed Light units are non-laser, emitting light across a broad range of wavelengths that are preferentially absorbed by the appropriate structure in the skin.

The Energist ULTRA™ System is designed such that each light pulse comprises a number of rapid shorter pulses. These 'variable pulses' ensure more controlled absorption by the appropriate structures whilst minimising heating of the surrounding skin. This means that a greater range of hair and skin types can be safely and effectively treated than was previously possible.

Q: How does it work?

A: Depending upon the treatment being carried out, light emitted from the Energist ULTRA™ System is preferentially absorbed by the specific structure in the skin. For hair removal, the melanin in the hair absorbs this light and is heated to a temperature that permanently inhibits the hair's ability to re-grow. For skin rejuvenation, improvement and therapy, various structures can absorb the light and repair the damage caused by ageing and the sun.

Q: What conditions can be treated?

A: The Energist ULTRA™ System has been designed to provide both safe and effective hair removal and skin rejuvenation treatments.

Hair Removal: Unwanted hair can be removed from all parts of the body, including legs, chin, upper lip, bikini line, underarm, back and chest. Grey and white hair can’t be removed permanently, as the hair must have a pigment.

Skin Rejuvenation: Many skin complaints caused by ageing and sun damage can be successfully treated using the yellow light produced by the Energist ULTRA™ System. This includes redness (rossacea), age spots, freckles, pigment changes, acne, skin texture and fine lines.

Q: What is the treatment procedure?

A: After a full consultation with a trained practitioner, a comprehensive treatment programme can be developed to match your needs and requirements. Depending upon which treatments are to be undertaken the basic procedure will stay the same:

The area to be treated will be prepared and the applicator head will be moved across in steps to ensure complete coverage. Due to the large applicator head treatments can be performed quickly, which we know is important with today's hectic lifestyle.

Q: Is there anything I need to do prior to, or after, treatment?

A: It is advisable to stay out of the sun, and away from tanning beds, for at least 4 weeks prior to any treatment to ensure that your skin is as close as possible to its natural colour. You must ensure that all cosmetics are removed from the treatment area with a good cleanser and then allow the skin to settle. As the skin may be slightly more sensitive post-treatment it is recommended to use skin products developed for sensitive skin and again avoid sunbathing or tanning beds for several weeks. 


FAQ - Hair Removal

Q: How does it work?

A: The light output from the applicator is preferentially absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This then heats up the hair follicle and disables the hair's germination cells so it cannot grow back.

Q: What areas can be treated?

A: This procedure works well on the face, neck, chest, arms, back, under arms, legs and bikini line, amongst other areas.

Q: Which hairs cannot be treated?

A: Hairs that are not in the active growth stage cannot be treated. Blonde, red and grey hairs are more difficult to remove and will take longer to treat.

Q: Are there any side-effects?

A: Due to the special parameters used there are little or no side-effects. The treatment has been likened to being flicked by a hair brush, but the skin may go slightly red for a few hours. If the area is over treated then there may be a chance of some slight crusting and blisters, however, this will resolve in 5 to 7 days.

Q: How many treatments does it require?

A: In most cases you will see a significant result after 3 treatments but there is a significant improvement if the treatment is repeated at regular intervals, normally 4 - 8 treatments are required. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can undergo. After treatment it will appear that the hairs continue to grow. What is actually happening is that the hair is still gripped by the skin and is slowly being expelled from the follicle.

Q: When will I see results?

A: As the process is designed to reduce the density of the hair growth you will start to see results after your first/second treatment. Because you see yourself everyday it is difficult for you to see gradual improvements taking place. Thus, it is very important that good close-up photos are taken before the treatment and then upon review at three months, this will then show the improvement.

Q: How often do you need treating?

A: After the initial treatment it is advisable to have a second treatment four weeks later. The hair can only be removed when it is in its active growing stage - anagen, therefore a series of treatments is required to catch the hairs in this cycle. Not all hairs are in the same cycle at the same given time.

Q: How many treatments can I have?

A: There is no maximum number of treatments that may be undertaken.

Q: How long do the effects last for?

A: It is important to understand that there are numerous hair follicles in every square centimetre of skin on the body, for example, the chin has approximately 455 follicles per cm 2 and the thigh about 55 follicles per cm 2.  As you can see, where we might have disabled a hair follicle there are adjacent ones that might not have been treated in the correct phase of hair growth and may grow through at any time.

Q: Who can be treated?

A: Virtually anybody can be treated with this system. However, any underlying medical conditions may exclude you from treatment or the results may be negligible. It is very important that you state clearly any medical conditions that you have or any medical treatments you are undertaking.

Q: What photo skin types can be treated?

A: Fitzpatrick Skin type’s I-V are safely treated with no reports of any adverse affects on type VI skin. However, it is not recommended to treat Type VI skin.

Q: Can this system be used with any other therapies?

A: Yes, the Energist ULTRAT System works very well when used in conjunction with other treatment modalities. This will ensure that the correct treatment is available to ensure a successful outcome
