Light - based Hair removal From the Cheshire Skin Clinic
Using VPL Technology
Imagine not having to shave again, or to schedule waxing before holidays and important nights out! Energist UltraPlus (VPL™) Variable Pulsed Light system has become the industry standard for effective, long-term hair removal. VPL technology uses short, safe controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair quickly and effectively, by affecting the ability of the hair follicle to regenerate, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth. The flexibility of the UltraPlus VPL to safely treat darker skin types has made it a leader in its field. VPL also treats a range of other including wrinkles and fine lines, age & sun spots, thread veins, rosacea, as well as acne management. Ask your beauty therapist at The Cheshire Skin Clinic for more information about VPL treatments.

How does Energist UltraPlus VPL technology work?
VPLTM  technology is a revolutionary new technique for hair removal and all aspects of skin rejuvenation. Using short pulses of light energy, which can be varied in number, length and frequency, for example- (2-15 pulses 3, 5, & 7 ms on time and 1-20ms off time, this allows the user to have access to a total of 840 different pulse options therefore making the Energist UltaPlus a very competitive versatile system, this complex technology has been made simple with its windows touch screen software which includes user friendly illustrations when using our systems.
The VPLTM systems emit light across a range of wavelengths, allowing a greater range of more gentle treatments to be performed on virtually all hair and skin types.
The safe and effective VPLTM technology helps to remove and improve the effects that age, hormonal activity, and over- exposure to the sun can have on the skin using short, safe controlled pulses of filtered light to help improve texture and tone, VPLTM leaves skin clearer and smoother.
Treating a wide range of conditions from unwanted hair, to active acne, thread veins, fine lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots and rosacea, VPLTM technology is the way forward for beauty salons and clinics.

Generally IPL technology can be used anywhere on the body, but caution must be taken when treating near mucus membrane areas such as; the mouth (lips) eye sockets, and genital areas.

The Science

          The Energist VPL delivers a series of very rapid, short pulses of light energy to the skin
          Aim - to effectively heat the hair follicle/vessel whilst keeping the surrounding skin cool
          Result - the hair follicle is disabled through the absorption of particular wavelengths of light 
          The client only feels a momentary mild heating sensation
