Benefits of E-Light: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Radio Frequency
The E-Light system , because it includes three advanced technologies that combine to deliver very effective treatments, without sacrificing comfort.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a special type of light, similar to the laser, but with superior performance. The IPL uses a specially designed lamp to generate a source of high intensity light, which through a given filter changes its characteristics for different treatments.
IPL uses a broader spectrum of light and it is less invasive than laser, so can be used in different body parts and different treatments. For these reasons, it is very common to find this med-aesthetic equipment for beauty salons and spas.
Radiofrequency (RF) is a non-invasive technique that raises the temperature of the deep layers of the skin, changing the structure of collagen and allowing skin cells to regenerate.
RF generates an electromagnetic field between two poles, passing through the deepest part of the skin, resulting in cellular movement, raising the temperature. Thus, RF complements IPL, expanding the treatment effect. Finally, a Cooling System makes the treatment more pleasant. The portion of the applicator which is in contact with the skin cools its outermost layers, soothing it and reducing the sensation of heat.
E-LIGHT Treatments for the Skin.
The combination of IPL, Radio Frequency and epidermal cooling is used to treat a selection of skin issues. Using different filters, the bands of light are optimized for each application. The advantage of combining IPL with radio frequency is that it reaches deeper and does not affect the melanin in the skin, so more skin types can be treated, which IPL alone cannot.
The treatment is virtually pain free with no downtime.
We Offer the following E/light Treatments;
- Skin Rejuvenation – for anti-ageing
- Acne therapy
- Thread Veins and Rosacea
- Pigmentation, Sunspots.
Intense Pulsed Light systems release precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that stimulate the fibroblast cells within the skin that produce collagen and elastin. This improves the irradiancy and tightness of the skin, controlling enlarged pores and giving a more uniform complexion.
|Per Treatment||Course Of 6|
The Intense Pulsed Light system releases yellow, green and red light that is emitted in a series of short pulses. The yellow/green light destroys the bacteria that live in the skin and cause acne, while the red light directly targets the overactive sebaceous glands that cause outbreaks of pustules. This causes shrinkage of the inflamed sebaceous glands and helps to prevent over-production of excess sebum, resulting in a clearer more uniform complexion.
Thread Veins and Rosacea
Intense pulsed light and laser systems release precisely controlled strong pulses of filtered light that are absorbed by the blood vessel, heating it to a point where it is destroyed. Following treatment the vessels quickly clear and are re-absorbed by the body, leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
Light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within the pigment (age/sun spot) the rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and shatters it in the skin. The pigment becomes darker for a few days as it gets nearer the skin surface and simply sloughs away in a week or so.
A FULL CONSULTATION & SKIN TEST IS REQUIRED PRIOR TO ALL OF OUR TREATMENTS. A TREATMENT PLAN AND COST WILL BE GIVEN AT THIS TIME DEPENDING ON THE AREA TO BE TREATED AND THE NUMBER OF TREATMENTS RECOMMENDED.
