The Latest Permanent Hair Removal Technology
With the advent of laser hair removal, a dream for millions of women worldwide has finally been realized. They no longer had to spend countless hours and dollars on the constant removal of unwanted hair from their bodies. The technology had one drawback though – it was unable to successfully remove gray or very blond hair. Given that gray hair is common in most women and the blond hair market is amongst the largest for cosmetology, this was a serious shortcoming.
But necessity is the mother of invention, and science has developed a new method, similar in principle to the method of laser hair removal, but without any restriction on colored hair removal: Photo-epilation.
Photo-epilation – influences on the hair follicle a high-intensity flash of light. The energy of the light pulse first heats the hair follicle and then destroys it. The dead hair bulb will no longer nourish the hair, and the root falls out after a few days after the photo-epilation. But since the thermal energy is transferred through the webroot, one can only remove the root bulbs that are in the active stage of growth. And because hair grows unevenly, at the time of the session photo-epilation only some of the hair roots will be removed permanently. Hence there is a need to repeat the procedure for up to 3-4 weeks in intervals. For the destruction of all the root bulbs, it takes an average of 3 to 6 treatments (depending on the individual characteristics of the skin and hair structure of the patient). In order to get rid of unwanted hair, you can try this process. With this, you can permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face and body so that you can avoid all the hassle that you face as you with the removal of unwanted hair.
After passing the course of photo-epilation, hair growth ceases for a period of 5-7 years. After this time, hormonal changes in the body can lead to the emergence of new hairs.
The most modern, safe and effective system for photo-epilation today is a medical device ‘IPL-Quantum HR’ from the company Lumenis – the world leader in the production of professional medical equipment. Apart from photo-epilation, this unit is designed to solve many important problems of modern aesthetic medicine: photo-rejuvenation, removal of pigmented skin blemishes and removal of tattoos without scarring.
Photo epilation has a high degree of efficiency and safety. This non-contact and non-intrusive method does not harm the skin and acts directly on the hair follicle. The procedure is painless and can be conducted even in sensitive areas (face, armpits, bikini wax areas). An allergic reaction is also very uncommon as opposed to the laser treatment which usually results in allergic reactions. The area of influence of one light flash is approximately 5 square centimeters. Therefore photo-epilation session takes an average of 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the treated area.
Versatility and high-quality long-term results of photo-epilation have brought tremendous popularity worldwide to the technology. The only prerequisite – photo-epilation procedures should be conducted in a professional medical center and with experienced staff. Otherwise, the effect can be adverse.
