SPL permanent hair reduction

The patented  L600 ensures the most advanced hair removal technique on the market by using the French developed latest innovation - Square Intense Pulse Light (SPL). SPL Technology represents a breakthrough in the Pulsed Light field.  The principle of the  involves the use of wide spectrum natural light filtered to remove Ultraviolet (UV) and Infrared (IR) wavelengths. This Intense and Selective Light is directed at the melanin, the pigment contained in, among other things, the hair.

 

How does it work ?
The intense selective light of the L600 penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the melanin (pigmentation) in the hair. This absorption heats the hair and the heat is transmitted to the nourishment structure of the hair: the follicle. This results in it being heated to a temperature of 70oC for a millisecond and it is thus killed. Hundreds of hair follicles are destroyed by each flash; the hairs then fall out in one to two weeks.

A laser operates only on a single wavelength and is theoretically adapted only to a single type of skin and hair. Because of its wide spectrum, the L600 allows different types of skin and hair to be treated. The L600 is therefore more flexible in use than a laser.

 

Does it hurt ?

The sensation of pain is extremely variable from one individual to another; it depends on: 
  • The individual sensitivity
  • The area of the body 
    (the face is more sensitive than the legs, the centre of the face more sensitive than the edge of the face) 
  • The skin pigmentation. The more the skin is pigmented the greater the epidermis will be heated. Light skins are the least sensitive. This is why the darker the skin, the greater the pain.  
  • The hair density. The more hairs there are per square cm – the greater the sensation of heat (density of a man's beard 455 /Iegs 50). This explains why the pain sensation diminishes with the number of sessions
In general, the sensation is that of an elastic band snapped against the skin. For most people a LOT less painful than waxing.  Most will feel NO pain at all.                                   


Is it permanent ?

The heat is led down through the hair follicle, which is then destroyed and rendered unable to produce new hair. Most hair will not grow back at all while other hair may grow back thinner and lighter in colour. It depends on the hair growth cycle. In the hair growth cycle there are three stages or phases:

 

The Hair Growth Cycle

Phase 1
The Anagene Phase or growth period. A new hair is generated by the follicle. It pierces the dermis and becomes active (synthesising keratin and melanin)

Phase 2
The Catagen Phase. This is a regression phase. The synthesis activity halts. The bulb detaches itself from the papilla. It remains linked by an epithelial cord formed by the outer epithelial sheath. This phase lasts 2 to 3 weeks.

Phase 3
The Telogen Phase or rest phase. During this phase, no hair is produced. Its duration is variable and depends upon numerous factors (anatomical location, internal and external factors).

Approximately 20% of all hairs are in their growth phase at any one time. Certain "resting" hairs can also become active due to age and hormonal modifications. Other factors include hair colour and thickness. Everyone is different and several sessions may be needed. After that, only one two annual maintenance sessions are recommended.
