Unwanted hair represents a challenge for a large number of women and men, who have come to find the traditional ways of removing hair including shaving, waxing and plucking time consuming and irritating to their skin. Over the last decade we have seen considerable advancements in hair removal technology, with the introduction of laser and light based systems – however there have been limitations in their use when it comes to skin and hair color. The Sublime hair removal system is the first to be declared safe for use on tanned and darker skin types, and is also considered one of the most effective and fast hair removal solutions on the market.
How Does the Elos Hair Removal System Work?
The Elos Sublime hair removal system works using a revolutionary Electro-Optical-Synergy system. Bi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF) is combined with a high power Diode laser to produce excellent results, while requiring less energy. The treatment is fast, and effective for long term hair removal results.
Darker Skin can Now Be Treated Successfully and Safely
A major benefit of the new Elos technology is that it makes laser hair removal available to darker-skinned patients – as well as for people with lighter hairs. The hair removal lasers target the pigment in the hair follicle, destroying it – however, white, blond and red hairs lack pigment and so, traditionally they have been considered unsuitable for laser hair removal treatment. Elos Sublime, however in combining a high diode laser with RF, has produced a system which can speedily and effectively achieve colorblind hair removal – making it suitable for use on all types of skin and hair color.
What can I expect at the Treatment Session?
The treatment is well tolerated by the majority of patients, and treatment varies from 5 to 60 minutes depending on the size of treatment area. The actual treatment feels like a small rubber band snapping against the skin, and the only mild discomfort which might result is a slight reddening of the skin.
