How does it work?
Variable pulsed light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and heated to a temperature that permanently disables the hair growth.

What areas can be treated?
This procedure works well on the face, neck, chest, arms, back, underarms, legs and bikini line.

What hairs cannot be treated?
The greater the contrast between your hair colour and your skin colour, the more easily we can achieve great results. If you have very blonde or red hair you will need to have a consultation with a practitioner to determine whether there is enough pigment in the hair for you to have a successful treatment. Grey or white hairs are not always suitable for this type of treatment, as they usually do not contain sufficient melanin to absorb light.

What is the treatment procedure?
After a full consultation the area to be treated will be prepared and the applicator head will be moved across in steps to ensure that the entire area is covered. Due to the large applicator head treatments can be performed quickly.

Are there any side effects?
Due to the personalised treatment settings determined by your therapist during consultation, you should not experience any side-effects. A slight reddening of the skin can occur immediately after your treatment. This is an indication of an effective treatment and will fade very quickly.

Why do I need multiple sessions?
Although the entire area to be treated is covered in each session, only hair that is in its active growing stage can be removed. Therefore a series of treatments is needed to catch all the hairs in this cycle. Sessions are ideally spaced 4 weeks apart.

Is there anything I need to do prior to or after this treatment?
Avoid sun exposure for at least 6 weeks prior to treatment and after treatment. Avoid waxing or plucking hair for a month prior to treatment. Hair can be shaved or trimmed 2 days before treatment.

How does it work?
Intense pulsed light is absorbed by the melanin of a pigmented lesion or the haemoglobin in a dilated capillary and repairs the damage caused by ageing and the sun.

Who is an ideal candidate?
Generally ideal candidates for Photo Rejuvenation are people that have:
· Red flushed faces
· Sun damaged skin
· Hyperpigmentation
· Age spots
· Broken capillaries
· Fine Lines
· Enlarged pores
· A desire to improve the overall appearance of their skin

What results can I expect?
One should notice one or more of the following:
· Skin will have a more even tone
· Sunspots will fade
· Pore size will reduce
· Skin will be more elastic and firm
· Softening of fine lines

How many treatments are required?
Depending on the severity of the skin condition, 5 to 8 treatments at 3 to 4 week intervals.

Pigments will be mixed according to individual requirements, from soft lip tones to darker more defined colours.
