At Nicola's Haven Skin & Beauty
we have chosen to partner with Lynton Lasers as they are experts in Laser Hair Removal, Skin Rejuvenation and Aesthetics.
The EXCELIGHT® uses Dynamic Reflex Technology for comfortable, safe and effective hair removal treatments.
Intense Pulse light is a technology used to perform various skin treatments, from hair removal to skin rejuvenation. The LYNTON IPL technology (Excelight) is widely considered as one of the best on the market with Lynton supplying machines to the NHS.
IPL is an effective method for removing unwanted hair from the body. It works by directing light energy at the pigment cells (melanin) within hair. The hair shaft contains a high concentration of melanin. This energy is absorbed by the melanin which heat up, causing damage to the hair follicle and shaft. Over time, the damaged hair sheds from the skin, thereby reducing the amount of hair on that area of skin.
How does light-assisted hair removal work?
The light emitted by the device is absorbed by melanin within the hair, which is then converted into heat energy and damages the hair follicle.
What does the treatment feel like?
Treatment sensation varies but you can feel what is described as the ‘hot flick’ of an elastic band during treatment. However, thanks to Dynamic Reflex Technology, most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions required varies from client to client and is dependent on many factors.
Results can be seen after just a few treatments. However, a minimum of 6 and up to 12 treatments, are recommended to deliver the best results.
Who is suitable for treatment?
Most people are suitable for treatment. We recommend a consultation with your clinician to ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not recommended for treatment.
Treatment: What to expect?
Goggles must be worn during treatment to protect your eyes from the bright light that the system generates. You will hear the buzzing of the machine and also feel a “hot flick” (as described above) or mild heat sensation during treatment. Occasionally the smell of burning hair can occur.
Post treatment the skin is cooled and a soothing balm is applied to settle the skin.
Treatment is best on skin that has not been exposed to direct sunlight for a minimum of 6 weeks prior. If your skin is tanned (fake or otherwise) treatment will not be commenced until the tan has either been removed or naturally fades.
You can shave but must not wax or pluck the treatment area in the week leading up to treatment. We want the hair follicle to be present in the skin at the time of treatment.
What are the benefits?
The Lynton Excelight IPL machine is:
A very effective hair removal system: arguably the best IPL machine available
A relatively short procedure time, approximately 20 – 90 minutes depending on treatment area
Effective on most skin types: Fitzpatrick I – VI
Ideal anytime of the year
Does it hurt?
The sensation caused by treatment with the Lynton Excelight IPL machine can vary between individuals. Most people describe feeling a “hot flick” of an elastic band during the treatment however, discomfort is usually mild and tolerable.
Treatment generates heat in the hair shaft but cooling is applied immediately after treatment to avoid excess heating of treatment areas.
