Elysion Laser Hair Removal – How does laser hair removal work?
The Elysion is a high power medical grade diode laser which delivers a specific wavelength (810nm) of high energy laser light to the skin to selectively heat up the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin.
The dark pigment of the hair absorbs the heat from the laser much faster than the lighter skin and conducts the heat to the base of the follicle. This heat cuts off the blood flow to the follicle and destroys the hair growth without damaging any other tissue. Approximately 7 to 10 days after treatment the treated hair will fall out leaving the skin smooth and hair free.
Your initial consultation
During your initial free consultation we will explain how the treatment works and what you can expect. We will advice as to number of treatments and provide a clear cost of treatment based on the areas to be treated. As the Elysion is faster than other lasers we can offer the lowest prices available for high quality treatment. Please see our price list and current offers for more information. If you choose to proceed with treatment we will perform a test patch to confirm suitability and then you are ready to have treatment 24 hours later
How many treatments are required?
There are three phases of hair growth so multiple treatments are required for maximum long term hair removal, Laser can only treat hair that is in the Anagen or growing phase when it is visible on the surface of the skin.
Approximately 6-8 weeks after treatment the next phase is visible on the skin and you are ready for your next treatment. Your skin will be smooth and hair free in between treatments and with each successive treatment the hair will be less dense and finer until maximum hair removal has been achieved, normally after 6 sessions.
Some other older lasers or IPL systems can take any more sessions, the Elysion with its high power and cooling can achieve results is less number of treatments.
Who is suitable for treatment?
Elysion laser can treat all skin types safely and effectively. It has specific programmes for each individual skin and hair type to ensure outstanding results and comfortable safe treatment. We treat both men and women and most areas of the body are suitable for treatment including full body hair removal. In Dynamic mode Elysion can also treat tanned skin.
How does treatment feel?
Elysion laser has integrated ‘crystal freeze’ cooling to keep the skin temperature cool and constant throughout treatment. As a result most people find it painless unlike other older lasers or IPL systems that do not have efficient integrated cooling. With IPLs you must limit the energy to avoid pain where as with Elysion you can deliver high energy to achieve best results without the pain. Indeed, the Elysion has two modes of operation and in its Dynamic mode treatment is completely painless for all skin types including tanned skin.
