What is VPL™?
Variable Pulsed Light is a safe and effective technique for the treatment of unwanted hair and skin imperfections.
Clinically proven to effectively treat unwanted hair, acne, rosacea, thread veins, fine lines/wrinkles, and the visible signs of sun damage, VPL™ treatments leave your skin looking smooth, silky and radiant.
The variable pulses of light from the VPL™ applicator use light energy to treat and remove unwanted hair and skin imperfections safely and easily, with none of the discomfort of invasive and/or surgical treatments.
VPL™ has been clinically proven to remove hair from all parts of the face and body. The variable pulse settings mean it can effectively treat the different types of hair found all over the body, from thicker underarm hair to finer facial hair, on a wide range of skin types.
How VPL™ Works for Hair Removal
VPL™ uses short, safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair quickly and effectively. Carefully filtered pulses of light 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 VPL™ a fast and effective way to treat unwanted hair.
What happens during a treatment?
You will receive a full consultation with a fully-trained therapist who will assess your suitability for the treatment and answer any questions that you may have.
Your therapist will advise you on the best course of treatment; this will depend on your skin type, the area to be treated and the colour of your hair.
After your consultation your therapist will perform a test on a patch of your skin before progressing with the treatment.
The hair in the treatment area will be trimmed and a cooling gel applied to ensure that the light energy is used to achieve the best results. The VPL™ applicator will be placed onto your skin and flashed in a series of shots to treat the area.
Immediately after the treatment your skin may appear a little more pink than usual, but this will fade quickly. The hairs treated will fall out naturally over a period of one to three weeks, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth.
A series of treatments will be necessary to achieve optimal results due to the natural hair growth cycles
Frequently Asked questions
Q.What Areas Can be Treated?
A.Ultra VPL™ is very effective at removing hair from the all over the face and neck, and from the underarms, legs, bikini-line, chest, arms and back. Long- lasting results are achievable for both men and women with Ultra VPL™
Q.What Hairs Can’t be Treated?
A.Only hairs in the active growth stage can be treated which is why a series of treatments will achieve the best results. Your therapist will explain the different stages of hair-growth during your consultation. Blonde and vellus hairs can be more difficult to treat and therefore it may take longer to see results, your therapist will advise you on the best course of treatment.
Q.Are There Any Side-Effects?
A.Due to the personalised treatment-settings determined by your therapist during consultation, you should not experience any side-effects. A slight reddening of the skin can occur immediately after your treatment, but this is an indication of an effective treatment and will fade very quickly.
Q.How Many Treatments are Required?
A.In most cases noticeable results are achieved after just three treatments, however your therapist will advise you on the best course of treatments for you during your consultation. The number of treatments you will need will be determined by the thickness and colour of your hair, the area to be treated and the hair’s growth cycle. 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 hormonal activity.
Q.What Should I Do After Treatment?
A.In the days following treatment hairs will still be in place, however, they will slowly be released from the follicle. There is no need to pull or pluck the hairs, they will fall out naturally over a period of one to three weeks after receiving your treatment.
Q.Can This System Be Used With Other Therapies?
A.Yes, clients often have other treatments around the same time as having an Ultra VPL™ treatment. Always advise your therapist during your consultation about any other treatments you have recently received or are planning to have.
