Our new generation of beauty equipment uses E-Light for hair removal, which is a combination of IPL (Intense Pulse Light), RF (Radio Frequency) and a skin contact cooling system.
Laser hair removal is considered the best hair removal method available today. Why? Because laser hair removal is a safe, medically proven long-term solution to the problem of unwanted hair. It is also the gentlest, quickest and most advanced method available today.
E-Light hair removal is a non-invasive treatment. Hair grows in three different cycles and the treatment works by targeting the melanin (pigment) in the hair with light from the system and upon absorption, the light is converted into heat. This intense heat action breaks down the hair follicle, reducing the opportunity of re-growth. Not every hair is in the active growing phase (Anagen) at any one time which is why you will need multiple treatments over time to treat all hairs during the Anagen phase.
If you think that laser hair removal is a treatment reserved for women, think again! There is a huge increase in the number of men getting treatment.
Most men seek hair removal for their back, chest, shoulders, upper arms and abdomen.
