The Epilight System achieves excellent long term results with minimal side effects. Up to 85% clearance can be achieved with the recommended number of treatments and in many cases results have shown higher clearance. Suitable for men and women, young and old, it is also the only light treatment suitable for Asian skin (skin type 5). Unlike other lasers, it can be customised to treat all skin types and hair colours.
The area to be treated is coated with a cool gel and then a hand held unit is applied to the skin. Light pulses safely penetrate the skin without harming the surrounded area and the sensation is like a mild tingling. No anaesthesia or pain medication is required.
Epilight uses pulsed light to heat up and destroy the hair follicle and prevent hair regrowth from the damaged follicle. First, a cool gel is applied, and then a hand-held treatment unit is placed onto the skin. In a flash, pulses of light safely penetrate the skin and disable hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously. When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated falls out within a week or two.
