How does Elysion laser hair removal work?
Using a specific wavelength of light that is selectively absorbed by the melanin surrounding the hair follicle, the laser is applied to the skin and the heat is conducted down to the base of the follicle and coagulates or cuts of the blood flow to the follicle. At the same time the Elysion’ cool freeze’ technology cools the skin to protect and avoid any damage to the surrounding skin. The hair will be destroyed and removed permanently and over the next week will fall out leaving the skin hair free and smooth.
Laser hair removal works by means of selective photothermolysis which is based on the selective destruction of the hair follicle, protecting, as much as possible, the surrounding structures: the epidermis and the dermis.
How many treatments are required?
The visible hair will be removed with each treatment. A course of treatments is required as laser hair removal is effective on hairs in the growing stage or visible on the skin. At any one time only 70% of hairs in the skin are dormant and not visible on the surface. Therefor for maximum clearance additional treatments are required for each phase of hair growth.
Elysion’s high power and pain free treatment of Elysion requires less treatments than older IPL or lasers which in some cases required 8-15 treatments. For most people Elysion achieves maximum clearance in just 6 sessions saving you time and money.
Treatments are scheduled 6-8 weeks apart as you wait for the next phase of hair growth to appear on the surface. You will be hair free in between treatments.
