Laser / IPL Hair Removal

Pulsed light with AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) treats unwanted hair with quick and safe bursts of light. Involving no downtime, you can continue with all your regular activities immediately after treatment. Best of all, this non-invasive and effective approach yields permanent hair reduction and long-term hair removal – anywhere on the body.

How does AFT pulsed light technology work?
During photoepilation, the pigment (melanin) within hair absorbs the light and converts it into heat. The hair transmits this heat into the hair follicle, which it destroys without damaging the epidermis. Thus, the follicle cannot produce a new hair.

A clinical breakthrough in hair removal, AFT’s uniquely shaped pulses of light deliver heat only in the therapeutic range, precisely heating their target with little or no damage or discomfort. Resulting in safe, quick and effective hair removal that lasts.

Is it safe?
The AFT parameters are specially designed to match your skin type and hair type, assuring exceptionally exact and gentle treatments. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.

Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people tolerate AFT pulsed light treatment well, and describe the sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. The majority of patients require no anesthesia, though topical anesthetic is an option for more sensitive areas.

How long does an AFT pulsed light treatment take?
Able to cover relatively large areas at high speed, AFT pulsed light treats numerous hairs with each light pulse. While this method allows for unusually rapid hair removal, the exact amount of time required is determined by the size of the area being treated. The underarm usually takes five minutes, while the back or legs may require 45 minutes.

How many treatments are necessary?
All hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth. As AFT pulsed light only affects hair follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of treatment, resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can be effectively treated. For this reason, treatment must be repeated until all hair follicles have passed through the growing phase. Clinical studies indicate that three to six treatments are needed at intervals of between one to three months. Your physician will advise you regarding the optimal number of treatments for you.

Who can be treated?
Men, women and children of all skin colours have been successfully treated. For best results, AFT pulsed light hair removal treatments are customized according to skin colour, hair texture and body size.

The Pulsed Light Advantage
AFT pulsed light is designed to selectively treat hair follicles, leaving surrounding tissue untouched. Using pulses of light, it effectively removes numerous hairs without causing irritation and minimizes the chance of scarring or pigmentation changes.

Unlike other traditional methods of hair removal, AFT offers a win-win treatment: enduring results over large body areas.

Where electrolysis provides long-term elimination of unwanted hair, it is uncomfortable and can demand years of treatment. And AFT light pulses, unlike the electrolysis needle, treat numerous hair follicles at once. Shaving lasts only a few days and can irritate the skin. Waxing can treat large areas, but frequently leads to allergic reaction and inflammation.
