There are many hair removal techniques, but the eStyle technology is, to date, the most advanced and most effective treatment for the permanent removal of unwanted hair. eStyle works on any hair colour and with any skin pigmentation, and has the following advantages:
- Superior results
- Effective on dark and light colour skin
- Works for all colour hair
- Does not require a patch test
- Gives superior results
- Less expensive than alternative techniques
What is it?
eStyle hair removal is a technology used to permanently remove unwanted hair. It works by combining the energy of intense pulsed light (IPL) and radio frequency (RF) waves.
How does it work?
The hair follicles are targeted under the combined influence of the IPL and RF sources. This makes the dependent hairs stop growing, and fall out. Only actively growing hair responds to this treatment. After the removal of growing hair, dormant follicles might become active, which is why the treatment should be repeated several times. However, eStyle hair removal requires fewer sessions than conventional techniques (for example, laser hair removal). The sessions are typically repeated on a 6-8 week basis, requiring a maximum of six sessions, however it could be much less.
How is it done?
A consultation is necessary to determine the appropriate level of treatment for the patientâ€™s skin and hair colours. The first treatment can start the same day. A typical treatment lasts only 30 minutes.
Does it hurt?
A slight sensation of prickling and warmth is reported by some patients but generally the treatment is painless. No anaesthesia is required.
What are the contraindications?
The technique is not recommended if the patient is pregnant, has a tendency to hyper-pigment, has had previous bad reactions to laser or IPL treatments, suffers from a malignancy, has active infection, is immuno-supressed, is using photo-sensitising drugs, has had a recent chemical peel, or has broken skin or open cuts.
