HOW IT WORKS
Energist UltraPlus VPL make for a great combination to target many skin types and hairs.
It is a varied pulse light that targets the specific depth of hair follicles and the pigment within them on all different skin types.
Our skin types are measured according to the Fitzpatrick Scale.
Our UltraPlus has successfully treated skin types 1 to 5.
Laser works by heating the melanin within the follicles and absorbs the varied pulse light energy
until it heats enough to permanently disable the follicle.
For permanent hair reduction with the Energist UltraPlus VPL,
an average of 6-12 treatments is required at a frequency of 4-6 weeks apart,
depending on the area of the body as well as the growth pattern for each individual client.
You will need to come in for touch-ups every 6 to 12 months after your sessions are complete or whenever you feel it is necessary for you.
Clients are asked to avoid sun exposure and self-tanners as well as waxing, plucking or tweezing hair for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment. If there has been any extra sun exposure, please let us know before your treatment begins to ensure we can achieve the best possible results for you. This will not impact your results.
For consultations you may leave the area as is, so we can assess the growth and give you the best possible requirement of the number of treatments you will need.
Generally, clients will return immediately to regular activities.
If there is any follicular redness or swelling, avoid friction and any exercise until it subsides.
Over the course of the next 7-10 days your hair will continue to grow and detach itself from the bulb, causing it to fall-out.
The regrowth that occurs will be less and sparse.
Broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen of 30 or higher must be worn daily to protect the skin.
Be mindful of the skin during peak hours from 1pm to 4pm.
Making sure you are wearing a hat or carrying an umbrella is key in sun safety.
Set yourself up for success!
Your results are dependent on your commitment to attend your sessions on time.
This is a permanent hair reduction, your hair will not return to its current state but expect a few light hairs to grow.
