Permanent Hair Removal
SHR or Super Hair Removal is a relatively new technology which uses gentle pulses of energy but at a higher frequency making it more gentle and effective than IPL.
Due to the gradual accumulation of energy to the skin, there is less trauma and irritation on the skin making it ideal and suitable for everyone, even those with the most sensitive of skin!
All hair types, fine and coarse and hair colours, dark and blonde, can be treated with great results.
Elight combines IPL (Intense Pulse Light) and RF (Radio Frequency)to make it a perfect choice for hair removal on the face where SHR is more difficult to perform. It penetrates the skin at a deeper level making it more efficient that IPL . RF is also used to tighten the skin so you’re essentially having two treatments for the price one one!
Elight is also suitable for all hair colours so those coarse, white chin hairs can be banished for good!
Six to Eight Treatments are usually needed although this may vary from person to person.
Men usually require more treatments due to a higher number of hair follicles.
Skin Tightening and Cellulite Reduction
RF (Radio Frequency) is used to shrink collagen in loose and slack skin. Stimulating new collagen fibres which results in smoothing wrinkles.
It heats the tissue below the surface of the skin, breaking down some fat cells and stimulating new elastin fibres helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite .
A course of ten sessions is ideal. Exercising for 20 minutes after each session which will exellorate the results.
This treatment is ideal for wrinkles and sun damage, leaving your skin looking rejuvenated and younger even after a few treatments. Visible results can be dramatic with the increased collagen production, toning and improving the elasticity of your skin. There is no downtime and can be fitted into a lunchbreak!
For full benefit, several treatments will be needed.
Pigmentation, Rosacea, Spider Veins, Stretch Marks
Lentigo (sun spots) can be eliminated in 1 or 2 sessions. This treatment is ideal for the face, hands or on individual patches.
Rosacea, spider veins and stretchmarks may require 3 or more sessions depending on the severity.
Acne is treated with specific wavelengths of lights which target the bacteria in the skin as well as inflamed sebaceous glands that contribute to breakouts. Multiple treatments deliver significantly better results than a single treatment. The best results are seen in the weeks after the last treatment.
4 to 8 sessions will be required depending on severity.
This laser facial freshens the complexion by removing the outer layers of dead skin cells from the face. It gradually reduces the skin’s pore size and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Often blackheads and whiteheads are removed by this technique.
To enhance the treatment, the laser can be passed a second time over the face without the carbon paste and then finished with a masque.
This can be carried out as a single treatment and has no downtime.
The removal of a tattoo will take approximately 10 sessions. Each session will be 8 weeks apart. Please bare in mind, green and yellow inks are almost impossible to remove due to poor absorption of the laser light and white ink cannot be removed.
R20 Removal is a multipass method of removal that can be performed in just one visit. This is only suitable for small black inked areas only.
Fungal Nail Eradication
Laser treatment offers an easy non toxic option to treat fungal nails. Ideally all nails on the affected foot will be treated. 2 treatments will be needed.
Prior to treatment, a formal diagnosis is required from a GP.
