Laser and Pulsed Light (IPL/VPL) Hair Removal is still the most requested aesthetic treatment in clinics and salons worldwide – it is a safe and proven method for the long term removal of unwanted hair, supported by numerous clinical studies.
When it comes to laser and light-based hair removal, UK Manufacturer Energist is a name you can trust – We have been designing and manufacturing hair removal lasers and IPL systems for more than 15 years – in fact, amongst our directors we have one of the original team who discovered that lasers could be effective for hair removal. All of our lasers & pulsed light systems, which are used by professionals worldwide, are FDA cleared and pass stringent testing and inspections to be badged as CE marked medical products.
Both laser and pulsed light systems are suitable for the effective, long term removal of unwanted hair, and being at the forefront of both technologies Energist has developed advanced technologies to maximise the comfort, speed and effectiveness of the treatment, whatever your skin tone.
How it works
Energist systems use short, safe, controlled pulses of laser or light to remove unwanted hair quickly and effectively. Carefully selected and specific wavelengths are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process produces heat, which heats the hair, damaging the follicle along with its ability to regenerate. Hundreds of hair follicles are treated with each pulse, making this a fast and effective way to treat unwanted hair.
This fast, effective and safe treatment offers an unsurpassed long-lasting hair removal solution, and with Energist systems, even darker skin tones can be treated, which is not possible with many similar technologies.
Your hair type will be determined at your initial consultation and a test patch will be performed using the system settings that best suit your individual features. The hair covering the treatment area will be trimmed and a cooling gel applied ensuring that the light is used effectively, to give maximum results from your Energist treatment. The Energist applicator will be placed on the area of your skin to be treated.
Your skin will then be exposed to a series of light pulses, flashing in rapid succession. The treatment is fast and can take as little as five minutes.
Hairs treated will fall out naturally over a period of one to three weeks leaving your skin feeling smooth and looking silky.
Due to the growth stages that all hair goes through, several treatments may be required to help prevent hair growth in the treatment area. You will be advised on how many treatments are likely to be needed.
All hair growth cycles are slightly different and some women, at a mature stage in their life, will sometimes find that some small hairs will appear gradually over time due to increased hormone activity.
