ELIGHT HAIR REMOVAL
ELIGHT PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION
This is a technology combining Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with Radio Frequency (RF). This advanced combination proves effective even in cases where other systems fail.
HOW ELIGHT WORKS
RF technology reaches the middle and deeper layers of the skin by heating the tissue. This allows for less energy needed to be applied during the IPL treatment, leading to greater results obtained with a reduced number of sessions. The energy generated by the E -LIGHT is transformed into heat that permanently burns the hair bulb, yet does not affect the rest of the cutaneous structures. Also, the cooling system provided by the equipment minimizes any type of discomfort.
Using a combination of IPL and RF as described above, hair loss can be seen even after the very first session. The treatment acts on the hairs that are currently in the growth phase, which will typically fall out in the days to weeks following treatment. Other hairs not in the growth stage continue to grow normally, but will be affected on subsequent sessions. Eventually, after a small number of treatments, there will be no more visible hairs remaining
An important advantage that E-LIGHT hair removal technology has over traditional laser is that it is the only method that is effective for blond, brown and dark hair. All skin types work as well: white, dark, mature or sensitive.
NUMBER OF SESSION REQUIRED TO SEE RESULTS
The number of E-LIGHT hair removal sessions depends on the type of hair, the density, the method you were using to shave, the area to be treated, the sensitivity of your skin and the response of your body to the treatment. With our E-LIGHT machine, 10 sessions are usually sufficient to get the desired results.
Our therapists will advise you on the frequency of treatments throughout your sessions. In facial areas, we recommend to perform the sessions every 20 to 30 days, and other body areas every month. E-LIGHT technology can treat virtually the entire body.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO PRIOR TO MY TREATMENT?
Avoid waxing, chemical peels on treated areas
Shave your hair one day before your appointment
Do not fake tan your skin or sunbathe
Make sure your skin is intact without contagious skin conditions (such as herpes, or cold sore)
IS IT SAFE?
Elight is the most advanced treatment for treating light and fine hair. Elight treatments have provided safe and effective permanent hair reduction and is TGA approved.
WILL MY HAIR EVER GROW BACK?
Actively growing hair that's been treated with Elight should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase, will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for some patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.
DO I NEED TO ARRANGE TIME OFF FROM WORK FOR TREATMENTS?
Elight treatments have no “down time” and requires no recovery time. You can have a treatment and return to work and other normal activities immediately.
WHY DO I NEED 6+ TREATMENTS?
Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth), Catagen (regression) and Telogen (resting, not growing). Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. A few treatments are therefore required for the treatment area to be hair free.
WHAT ARE THE AFTERCARE STEPS?
It’s important that you do not pluck or wax any hair on the area that was treated. By doing so, you will disrupt the treatment process which may lead to potential stimulation of the hair follicle, in other words you could potentially spark regrowth.
Exfoliate the area once any redness subsides, approximately one to two weeks after your laser hair removal appointment.
Avoid extremely hot showers or baths for at least 48 hours after the treatment.
Avoidwearing tight clothings for the first 3 days
If discolouration/pigmentation occurs to the affected area, apply vitamin E to encourage soothing of the skin.
Avoid direct sunlight for at least two to four weeks after the treatment.
If you have undergone laser hair removal in a facial area, mineral makeup may be applied within the first 48 hours, but other cosmetics should be avoided until the skin has had time to heal.
Keep away from deodorants for at least three days to avoid causing irritation.
It’s important not the scratch the affected area. Scratching or causing a scab to arise may result in scarring.
Give your body 24-48 hours rest from excessive exercise, the gym or the sauna – these can all cause irritation.
