SharpLight hair removal treatments are non-invasive clean and relatively painless. Suitable for, anybody area, and size. They use a unique smooth pulse technology which is safe and reliable, offering permanent hair reduction results, with minimum discomfort.
Pulsed- light technology uses hand held flash lamps (6.4 cm2) which emit gentle pulses of light which are absorbed by the melanin in the hair. It is a selective destruction without damaging surrounding tissue.
All pulsed light-treatments are safe, painless, non-invasive with minimum side effects.
How many treatments are required?
The typical treatment regimen is 5-7 treatments, spaced 4- 12 weeks apart depending on body area.
About 20-25% of human hair follicles are in the growth phase at any given time. This is the percentage of hair follicles that can be destroyed in a single treatment session. In order to eliminate almost 70% to 95% of the hair, treatment has to be repeated until the desired result is achieved.
IPL needs a good contrast to be effective as well. The colour of the skin needs to be lighter than the hair to be effective. The client needs to avoid overexposure to the sun while getting treatments.
Blonde and Grey hair have no melanin, they would not be suitable for this type of hair reduction. There are many types of red hair and success with IPL laser would be uncertain.
