The LiteFLO system evolved how InteliBrite treatment is delivered. It allows the handset to constantly glide across the skin without stopping, delivering treatment as it goes. Treatment takes 80% less time, is gentler on the skin, residual energy provides even better results and the treatment is completely painless.
The advanced technology of the InteliBrite can be used to deliver a range of treatments. Treatment can be provided on the face or body, over a course of sessions. Improvement begins from the first session and increases until the programme is complete. Treatment is fast and results are long-term or permanent.
LiteFLO IPL Hair Removal
The most popular of all InteliBrite IPL treatments. The hair follicle is targeted and destroyed by the smooth glide of light energy, regrowth is disabled. Skin is left smooth and free from hair.
LiteFLO technology is a new innovation which delivers IPL hair removal by skimming the applicator gently over the surface of the skin. This means that both large and small areas of unwanted hair are treated in minutes – a full body treatment is easily completed in less than a 1 hour session.
Frequently Asked Questions About Intense Pulsed Light IPL Treatments
What is Intense Pulse Light?
This incredible new therapy is based on emitting high intensity pulses of light to penetrate the skin. This allows such treatments as Hair Removal and Photo rejuvenation to be performed.
How does IPL remove hair?
The Intense Light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the Melanin in the hair. This absorption treats the hair, with the heat being transported to the nourishment structure of the hair (follicle). This is heated to 80°C for a millisecond, thus destroying the follicle. Hundreds of follicles are destroyed by each flash, and the hairs then fall out in 1-2 weeks.
Can all types of hair be treated?
The darker the hair, (the richer the melanin content), the better the result. White and red hairs cannot be removed using this method.
How does Pulsed Light act in Photo Rejuvenation?
IPL penetrates the skin and is then attracted by one of the chromophores and coloured particles. Light absorption causes the temperature to rise to such a degree that it will stimulate, destroy or scleroses’ the target or adjacent tissue. Blemishes are removed or attenuated, the skin once more having a younger and more toned aspect, with lines and wrinkles being softened or virtually disappearing.
Can all skins be treated with Photo Rejuvenation?
All skin types contain Melanin, however, it is important that the skin is not too dark.
Is IPL treatment painful?
The sensation of pain is extremely variable from one individual to another. It also depends on the concentration of Melanin in the skin, hair size and hair density. This is why the darker the skin, the greater the sensation. It should be noted that a sensation of prickling may persist for 1-2 weeks after a session.
Are there any secondary effects?
In certain cases there may be redness in the treated area, local oedema or peri-follicular papullae (goose bumps). These effects will disappear several hours after the treatment, however in the majority of cases; there are no visible secondary effects.
How do we know if sufficient treatment has been given?
Hair Removal: In the majority of cases, there is no immediate visible effect. It is possible, immediately after treatment, to pull a hair using tweezers. If it can be removed without pulling on the skin, this is proof of a good result. Also if per-follicular papullae or redness appears around the hair follicle, this also indicated the treatment has been successful.
Skin Rejuvenation: In certain cases, results are immediately visible (Telangiectasia). In others, results will only begin to appear after a few hours and will only really become visible after approx. 10 days. Sometimes results are only visible after multiple sessions (3 or 4), but the client can tell that their skin texture and tone have improved.
How many sessions are necessary?
Hair: It is estimated that around 20% of hairs are in their growth phase at any one time. Normally 6 sessions should be recommended, however this may alter. (4-8 weeks apart)
Skin: The number of sessions depends on the nature of the lesions and their size. However, it is generally accepted that an average of 6 sessions gives a good result.
