Phaser EPL delivers pulses of light into the skin at specific wavelengths which selectively absorb in the melanin pigment in the hair follicle and the vascular network that feeds the
germ cells located in the bulge. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively disables the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin tissue. Once treated, the hairs will gradually
slip out over the next seven to ten days leaving the skin smooth and hair free.
It is important to note that IPL hair removal is
effective in removing hairs which are in the growing (Anagen) phase. Follicles in the second phase (Catagen) and third phase (Telagen) will not be affected since the dermal papilla is not yet
attached to the follicle itself. As a result additional treatments will be required once the dormant hairs reach the Anagen phase.
Smartlite™ technology is a unique feature, setting
new standards in IPL technology and developed exclusively for the Phaser range of products. Smartlite™ produces high levels of light energy that can be used effectively for
the treatment of unwanted hair, skin rejuvenation and active acne.
This unique technology uses a combination of enclosed waveguide and a special reflecting cavity at the rear of the flashlamp source which increases transmission of light energy into
tissue significantly compared to a standard IPL.
Proven Treatment Process
Our past hair removal experience with lasers and IPL has clearly demonstrated it is important to destroy both the germ cell (bulge) and hair root (bulb). Smartlite™ delivers a combination of yellow
and red light combined with DPT (Dual Phase Technology) to destroy both structures and increase the efficiency and results.
Dual Phase Technology
Phaser EPL has a unique Dual Phase Pulse which is
designed to provide destruction of both the bulge and the bulb for ultimate hair removal results.
The primary phase is a fast rise sculptured pulse allowing 50% of the energy to be transferred to tissue in the optimum time interval to focus on a flowing blood target and ultimately
destruction of the bulge. This effect is essential for the removal of finer and lighter coloured hairs. This rapid rise in energy is also extremely effective for the treatment of unwanted
pigmentation when used with the appropriate hand piece.
The secondary phase of the pulse is an extended tail
of energy to enhance the thermal increase in the hair bulb, without increasing the temperature of the epidermis. This enables the coarser and more stubborn hairs to be treated efficiently.
Phaser EPL also uses a rapid rise 5ms pulse for improved results on
fine hair and for the treatment of pigmented lesions the long pulse at 40ms is ideally suited for salon treatments on dark skin types and improved vascular lesions.
