Energist Ultra VPL™

What makes this system special?

Traditionally, most cosmetic procedures have been associated with lasers. As technology has progressed, research has shown that IPL- Intense Pulsed Light units, and in particular Variable Pulsed Light (VPL™) Systems, are regularly producing better results than the laser systems originally available. Pulsed Light units are non-laser, emitting light across a broad range of wavelengths that are preferentially absorbed by the appropriate structure of the skin. The Energist ULTRA™ System is designed such that each light pulse comprises a number of rapid shorter pulses. These "variable pulses" ensure more controlled absorption by the appropriate structures whilst minimizing heating of the surrounding skin. This means that a greater range of hair and skin types can be safely and effectively treated than was previously possible.

How does it work?

Depending upon the treatment being carried out, light emitted from the Energist ULTRA™ System is preferentially absorbed by the specific structure in the skin. For hair removal, the melanin in the hair absorbs this light and is heated to a temperature that permanently inhibits the hair’s ability to regrow. For skin rejuvenation, various structures can absorb the light and repair the damage caused by ageing and the sun.

What conditions can be treated?

The Energist ULTRA™ System has been designed to provide both safe and effective hair removal and skin rejuvenation treatment.

Hair Removal:

Unwanted hair can be removed from all parts of the body, including legs, chin, upper lip, bikini line, underarm, back and chest.

Skin Rejuvenation:

Many skin complaints caused by ageing and sub damage can be successfully treated using the yellow light produced by the Energist ULTRA™ System. This includes redness, roseacea, age spots, freckles, pigment changes, skin texture and fine lines. Recent studies have shown that even active acne (Acne Vulgaris) has responded very well to phototherapy using yellow light.

What is the treatment procedure?

After a full consultation with a trained therapist, a comprehensive treatment programme can be developed to match your needs and requirements. Depending upon which treatments are to be undertaken the basic procedure will stay the same: The area to be treated will be prepared and the applicator head will be moved across in steps to ensure complete coverage. Due to the large applicator head, treatments can be performed quickly, which we know is important with today’s hectic lifestyle.

Is there anything i need to do prior to, or after, treatment?

It is advisable to stay out of the sun and away from tanning beds, for at least 6 weeks prior to any treatment to ensure that your skin is as close as possible to its natural colour. You must ensure that all cosmetics are removed from the treatment area with a good cleanser and then allow the skin to settle. As the skin may be slightly more sensitive post-treatment it is recommended to use skin products developed for sensitive skin and again avoid sunbathing or tanning beds for several weeks.

How many treatments does it require?

In most cases you will see a result after 3 treatments but there is a significant improvement if the treatment is repeated at regular intervals. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can undergo. For Hair Removal: After treatment it will appear that the hairs continue to grow. What is actually happening is that the hair is still gripped by the skin and is slowly being expelled from the follicle. Results will be noticeable after your second treatment.

Suitable for: Face, neck, decolletee, hands, legs & arms.
