Energist VPL Laser Treatments
VPL™ has been clinically proven to remove hair from all parts of the face and body. The variable pulse settings mean it can effectively treat the different types of hair found all over the body, from thicker underarm hair to finer facial hair, on a wide range of skin types.
VPL™ uses short, safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair quickly and effectively. Carefully filtered pulses of light are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process produces heat, which heats the hair, damaging the follicle along with its ability to regenerate. Hundreds of hair follicles are treated with each pulse, making VPL™ a fast and effective way to treat unwanted hair.

What is VPL and IPL ?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a light energy that is applied to certain parts of the body, so that the target structure – whether it be hair or blood vessel in the skin – absorbs the energy and is destroyed.
IPL is not the same as laser, although it is similar. The main difference is that laser (Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is a technique of producing light energy of only one wavelength. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses white light which contains all the wavelengths of visible light from red to blue. However, to concentrate the treatments on different structures, filters are used to reduce certain wavelengths that are not needed.
