Permanent Hair Removal in Barrie
What is Epilight?
EpiLight Hair Removal System is a non-invasive light therapy device specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body.
Who is a good candidate for Epilight?
The Epilight system’s unique design offers you customized treatment, according to your hair color, texture, and location on the body. EpiLight can remove all hair colors from all parts of the body including the chin, upper lip, cheeks, legs, arms, underarms, and back as well as sensitive areas like the ears, nose, chest, and bikini line.
EpiLight uses pulsed light to remove hair and impair hair re-growth. First, a cool gel and a hand-held treatment unit are gently applied to the skin. Then, in a flash, pulses of light safely penetrate the skin and disable hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously. When the gel is removed, much of the hair is wiped off with it. The remaining hair in the treated area falls out within a week or two.
When EpiLight’s pulse of light is delivered to the hair, you may feel a mild sting or pinch similar to the snap of a rubber band. No local anesthesia or pain medication is required.
The amount of sessions required varies depending upon your hair color and location on the body. Several treatments may be needed, with each session usually lasting 10-30 minutes.
You may experience some short-term side effects. This may include slight reddening of the skin or local swelling which goes away within a few days. In rare instances there may be some blistering.
You can return to work the same day and resume all regular activities. You should limit sun exposure, which is always a good idea.
