Triple Wavelength Diode Laser Treatments
Laser hair removal in general, works on the principle of selective photothermolysis, which means dark areas absorb light energy from the laser better than lighter ones. However, lasers do not inherently distinguish hair from skin, and the distinction is made by color alone. When the hair is darker than the surrounding skin, it absorbs the light energy (the skin doesn’t) This light energy turns into heat which destroys both the hair shaft and the follicle, while keeping the skin unharmed.
What’s special about the diode laser is that it has a longer wavelength than most other lasers, enabling the light to penetrate deeper into skin and reach the hair follicle. This makes it better at avoiding the melanin pigment in the skin and by doing so, causing less epidermal injury than other lasers. This makes it safer and gentler for use on darker skin tones.
You can look forward to clean, smooth skin when your unwanted hair has been removed with a diode laser.
IPL Hair Reduction Treatments
Excess body or facial hair can be a problem for both women and men. Frequent hair removal chores including shaving, depilatories, plucking, and waxing are time-consuming, often painful, and always inconvenient. At best, they offer only temporary results, for some only a few hours. Laser technology has brought us a better way, a safe, long-lasting way to remove unwanted hair from any part of the body, leaving skin feeling smooth and healthy.
Lasers and IPL (intense pulsed light) devices, (which are not technically lasers but work on a similar principal), can be used for hair reduction and skin treatments such as improving skin tone, fading sun damage and acne. Permanent hair reduction involves the use of either a single wavelength of light (laser) or a flash of light containing hundreds of wavelengths (IPL or broadband light BBL).
Melanin within the hair follicles is targeted, heating and damaging the follicles in an active growth cycle. Only hairs that have color can be treated, so white and grey hairs won’t respond. Success of the treatment depends on your coloring, with laser generally working best on fair skin and dark hair. Fairer skin and red hair will respond to a lesser degree and those with darker skin can be treated, with a great deal of care. All the experts agree that laser or IPL treatment, in the hands of an experienced and trained operator can be very effective. It’s the best way to remove unwanted hair, as long as you’re a “suitable candidate”.
IPL Photo Facials
An IPL photo facial can treat a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, broken capillaries, and facial redness. An IPL photo facial delivers a bright blast of light at very high energy levels through the special handpiece. The number of IPL photo facials you need will vary depending on the condition you’re treating, the results you want, and how your skin responds.
Photo facials work best in conjunction with a regular skin care routine.BOOK SESSION
