intense pulse light hair removal for light and dark skin


What does the DERMEO permanent hair removal system consist of ?

It uses an Intense Pulse of Light, emitted in the form of flashes by very high-tech equipment.  This technique is non-invasive and permanent, and can be carried out in perfect comfort and safety, for the long-lasting removal of unwanted hair.

Pulsed light is absorbed by melanin (a coloured pigment) present in hair during the growth stage (anagen phase), and is then conducted down to the root of the hair.  This light is turned into heat, and it is the heat that destroys the follicle and the root without side effects.  This is “selective photothermolysis” or “photodepilation.”

Who is it for and for what parts of the body?

Pulsed Light hair removal can be carried out on all healthy skin, light or dark, on both men and women, and on all parts of the body.  However, you should try not to expose treated areas to the sun before or after each session.  The absence of melanin in the hair prevents the transfer of heat, which is the reason for the lack of results with white hairs, and why extra sessions are needed to treat fair hairs.

What are the results?

People receiving Pulsed Light treatment show at least an 80% success rate for hair not growing back.  Clinical research conducted over a number of years and in a number of countries, confirms its high level of effectiveness.*

How many sessions do I need?

The number of sessions depends on the nature and type of skin, skin pigmentation, age and sex.  Usually 8 to 12 sessions are needed at regular intervals of approximately 6 weeks.*

How much does it cost?

The price is very reasonable, because it is long lasting so the cost covers a much greater period of time than traditional techniques (waxing, shaving, depilatory cream, tweezers, etc.)  Moreover, Pulsed Light hair removal is much less costly than other permanent techniques.

Advantages of this technique?*

  • Quick and effective
  • Low cost treatment
  • Non-invasive
  • Risk free (no UV, has been used for many years throughout the world, and by the medical profession)
  • Comfortable
  • Progressive and long lasting

What are the restrictions?

  • Skin should be healthy, without abrasions or skin disease
  • You should not be on medication or use photosensitizing products (antibiotics, vitamin A and K, etc.)
  • Contraindicated during pregnancy
  • Avoid U.V. tanning studios and tanning agents (gels, creams, bronzing, etc.)

To get the best results do not have wax hair removal treatments before the session.  It is absolutely necessary that the follicle still be there to guide the light and heat down to the root.
