How Does the IPL Hair Removal System Work?

The ECOLITE IPL (Intense Pulse Light) hair removal system produces a high intensity flash of filtered light from the applicator head, which is placed in contact with the skin. The energy from the light is absorbed by the pigment melanin, which is the chromophore that gives the hair it’s colour. The hair acts as a conductor of the light and effectively turns it into heat to raise the temperature of the surrounding cells to 70 degree centigrade or more. The heating denatures, or kills, the cells making them incapable or producing further hair growth.

Is ECOLITE IPL Treatment Permanent?

Most authorities would agree that using current laser and IPL technology, it is possible to permanently remove hair up to 85-90%. Further, histology studies have found destroyed and denatured hair follicle cells in post treatment.

Does ECOLITE IPL Hair Removal Treatment Hurt?

As the light energy is absorbed, the discomfort depends upon the concentration of melanin in the epidermis and the hairs combined. Consequently there will be more sensation in darker skin types and those with dense hair. No Anaesthesia is required and most patients describe the pain as moderate and acceptable “as if a hairbrush has been tapped against the skin”.

What Are The Side Effects?

The visible light is completely safe and no special precautions are needed apart from glasses. Some clients become quite red immediately after treatment & very rarely small blisters as from excessive sun exposure can occur. However, most clients experience no side effects at all, and any of the described skin reactions should disappear within hours to a few days. Unlike Electrolysis the ECOLITE Treatment is Non-Invasive.

How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

Only hair in the growth phase can be treated. The number of hairs in this phase varies from 20% to 70% depending on the body site. The lengths of the growth cycles also vary from 4 to 24 weeks depending on the body site. For most clients six treatments are sufficient to permanently reduce an area of hair up to 85%. After the first treatment, most clients get a significant reduction in hair density as new hairs tend to become finer. It is important to know that the first treatment is believed to synchronize the anagen (growth) phase of the non-anagen hairs. This may cause what seems to be regrowth, but actually just sleeping hairs starting to grow at the same time (new growth). This in turn makes the following treatment(s) more effective.

IPL Treatments for Your Skin:

Photo-Rejuvenation

Many factors contribute to the ageing of our skin, including excessive sun exposure and decreased production of collagen. Over time, due to cumulative sun exposure alterations in the colour and texture of the skin inevitably occur. In addition, the collagen in the skin that keeps it taut begins to weaken, and with the pull of gravity the skin becomes lax. The result is wrinkled, sagging, uneven, and blotched skin. Thanks to the miracle of IPL technology, photo-rejuvenation treatments can literally turn back the clock, restoring a more youthful and vibrant appearance to the skin. The clinically-tested ECOLITE photo-rejuvenation treatment uses safe, visible infared light to give you a younger and fresher look. Designed to reduce age spots, fine lines, visible blood vessels, uneven pigmentation or diffuse redness. In order to maintain this fresh look, clients normally elect to schedule 1-2 annual maintenance treatments in order to keep their youthful appearance.

Blemishes and Ache

ECOLITE IPL technology is also an innovative way to quickly, safely and comfortably improve Rosacea and ache, treat sun-damaged skin, remove age spots from your face, chest, arms, hands and eliminate unwanted thread and spider veins. Amazing results can be seem in as few as 3-4 sessions.

Thread and Spider Veins

Thread and Spider Veins, which affect the face, body and legs, are extremely common and can be very embarrassing. However IPL technology can now be used to effectively remove them. The ECOLITE IPL emits a powerful yellow light that is absorbed by the red colour in the veins. Vein treatments are performed quickly, within 15 to 20 minutes, yielding complete results after around 4 or 5 sessions.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes redness and swelling, to the face, scalp, neck, ears, chest and back. Today, IPL is considered to be the best treatment for this condition. Not only do most Rosacea sufferers see great improvements in symptoms, but also a reduction in the rate of future flare ups. Furthermore, the warming effect of the light energy from the IPL device also increases the production of collagen that has a tightening and smoothing effect on the skin. Clients with mild to severe Rosacea can see an 80 to 90% overall reduction in facial redness in 4-6 treatments.

Sun Damaged Skin and Pigmentation

IPL uses wavelengths of heated light which are directly aimed at the pigmented spots, the pigment is able to be targeted precisely without damaging the surrounding tissue. After the session, the skin pigmentation or sun spots will gradually fade and slowly disappear. IPL treatments effectively reduce skin pigmentation in approximately 4-6 visits. Most clients report 70% or greater improvement over the duration of their treatment course.
