Light Sheer ET:
Our Light Sheer ET has a penetration depth of 800nanometers. It is an ideal depth for laser hair removal. It treats safely when your skin has been out of the sun for a month minimum. It works on all skin types and hair types. This system works best on the coarser and medium hairs. It has a smaller treatment area so works well with smaller or harder to reach areas.
Light Sheer Duet:
The Light Sheer Duet is the same basic system as the ET with only smaller, yet very significant differences. It is the update version of the ET. The Light Sheer Duet has a larger treatment area so is much quicker than the ET. It has a vacuum assisted system pulling the target closer to the surface of the skin, therefore using less energy and essentially making the treatments more comfortable.
BBL Hair Removal (Also referred to as IPL)
Hair removal with BBL is another method of reducing and eliminated unwanted hair. This treatment uses the science of light to significantly reduce hair by targeting and injuring hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin.
How it works
BBL, short for Broad Band Light, is a treatment that removes hair through a process called photoepilation, which is based on the principle of selective photothermolysis. This means that the light energy is absorbed in the target hair follicles while sparing the surrounding, healthy tissue. While it is still a light source, BBL works differently than conventional laser systems. Instead, BBL systems use a broad light spectrum of light with wavelengths ranging from 590 to 1200 nm (green, yellow, orange, red and infrared). The wavelengths emit light energy in carefully timed pulses to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment, decrease the risk of skin damage and minimize pain.
During the treatment, a gel is applied to the treatment area in order to focus the light energy and cool the top skin layer. A handheld device is then placed on the skin and the treatment begins. The light energy heats and damages the hair follicle, typically causing the hair to fall out from the follicle. BBL technology allows your technician to provide a procedure that is gentle and non-invasive, with nominal side effects.
BBL systems can also be customized to your specific skin colour, hair colour and hair density. As a result, it can be used on a wide range of hair colours, from light brown to dark black hair. It also removes hair from all skin types – from porcelain white through olive to dark brown complexions. Hair on most parts of the body can be treated, no matter how deep the follicles reside. Sensitive areas like the lips, ears, nose, underarms, and bikini line can usually be easily tolerated.
BBL can also treat very large areas at one time. Approximately 100 to 200 hairs can be treated with each flash of the light so that large patches of hair on the legs, back and chest can be treated quickly in a single session. It can also be used for small delicate areas as well. Because of the length of time associated with other hair removal treatments, such as electrolysis, BBL may be a fast way to achieve a hair-free look.
As with other laser procedures, multiple treatment sessions are typically required for long-lasting hair removal.
Other than keeping the treated area protected from sunlight for a few weeks, you can return to your full, normal routines immediately. Slight redness, similar to a mild sunburn, may occur, which usually disappears over a few days.
When using BBL for hair removal it is very important to be out of the sun for minimum 1 month. During the summer months when being exposed to sunshine our 1064ndyag would be the appropriate choice of systems to be used.
