All About Laser Hair Removal
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology is an innovative technology based on the principle of selective photothermolysis and photochemical effects. This broad band light reacts with the skin tissue for skin rejuvenation, hair removal and treatment of pigmentation without damaging the skin. Devices like the Alma Soprano Laser Hair Removal Machine, the Dermalite and our Angelite Machine are all examples of IPL Laser hair removal machines.
IPL and Laser alike focus on the melanin in the hair follicle, heating it up and disrupting the melanin in the follicle causing the follicle to stop reproducing a hair.
Hair grows in 3 stages so it usually takes between 4-6 sessions 4-6 weeks apart to get the full effects of the hair removal treatment so ensure each hair at each growth is destroyed henceforth inhibiting further growth.
After the 4-6 treatments maintenance every so often (maybe once or twice every year or two) would be recommended to keep hair at bay.
Laser Hair Removal And Skin Tone
Below is information on the best types of hair for hair removal.
It is possible with the Angelite to work effectively on each skin skin type on the Fitzpatrick Scale between 1-6, 1 being very fair skinned with light hair and 6 being very dark skin with dark hair.
The best and most effective hair removal happens when skin is light and hair is dark because the laser finds the melanin in the hair follicle more easily becuase of the contrast than when a client has light hair light skin or dark hair dark skin, although effective results are possible against all levels of the Fitzpatrick scale when the technician has the appropriate amount of knowledge and experience while using the machine at the right settings.
If your technician does not have the appropriate settings or knowledge it can effect the results of the hair removal treatments and or burn the skin. At Diamond and Pearl Spa our handpiece has a built in cooling system to keep the hair cool and comfortable.
With simultaneous control over multiple operating parameters, our laser hair removal machine delivers excellent performance all skin types of the Fitzpatrick scale 1-6.
This is an excellent feature for treatments on darker skin types or treatments requiring more energy. Also, the handpiece has a built in cooling system to aid in keeping the procedure cool and comfortable.
The bonus of our machine is that it has all the power of a commercial machine without the need of UV gel on the treatment areas making for a cleaner, tidier more simple and quicker overall treatment for those clients who are on the go.
