Sharplight: The Painless Laser
Our new Sharplight technology is Health Canada approved and has been dubbed the "painless laser" for the minimal discomfort it offers. Imagine not having to use numbing creams for those pesky coarse Brazilians. The treatment face that touches your skin rests at a cool –8°C, minimizing pain, swelling, and chances for burn. This high end IPL can detect even finer hair on a variety of skin types. Fewer treatments needed compared to other IPLs and more effective at giving you longer lasting results.
Best of all: no messy gel is applied to the skin. You can leave the treatment and head out for a date-night!
What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and uses a source of broad-spectrum light. In hair removal, the light targets the melanin pigment in the hairs. The hair follicle absorbs the light energy as heat, warming the hair and causing permanent damage to the follicle to prevent hair regrowth.
Treatments Matched to Your Skin
The IPL technology allows treatment to be altered to specifically match your hair & skin type, making results more potent and longer-lasting than traditional laser hair removal. Not only do people with different skin and hair colours need different treatment regimens, but thick and coarse bikini hair will need a different treatment than thin facial hair.
Positive Side Effects
The broad spectrum technology can also improve a variety of skin conditions as a possible side effect of treatment. For example, IPL hair removal on the face may improve acne-prone skin, or hair removal on darker underarms or legs may lighten pigment for a more even complexion. Most clients see ingrown hair minimized or completely gone with these treatments.
Sharplight hair removal costs more per session than other IPLs like Dermalase because it is more precise, gel free and provides results in fewer treatments.
