Energist VPL Rejuvenation

How it works

Sun damage and the effects of ageing can leave your skin looking tired and prematurely aged, resulting in skin imperfections on your face and body, Energist VPL uses light energy to target the different structures within the skin to reduce imperfections and improve skin texture and tone.
Your consultation

You will receive a full consultation with a fully trained therapist who will assess your suitability for the treatment and answer any questions you may have, your therapist will advise you on the best course of treatment; this will depend on your age, your skin condition, the severity of your condition and your lifestyle. Smoking, drinking and other lifestyle influences will all be taken into consideration. After your consultation, your therapist will perform a test patch on your skin before progressing with the treatment.

The treatment

Your therapist will apply a cooling gel to the area being treated to ensure that the light energy from Energist VPL achieves the best results. After your treatment, the cooling gel will be removed and an SPF lotion will be applied.

Thread Veins, Spider Naevi & Cherry Spots

These are conditions where small broken veins become visible on the skin's surface. During a VPL treatment light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels that make up these imperfections. This absorption process heats up and breaks down the vessels. Effective VPL™ treatments allow the body to recognise these broken vessels as waste and remove them naturally.

Sun & Age Spots

Sun, liver and age spots are conditions that usually appear in later years on the surface of the skin. These are all caused by an excess concentration of melanin in a particular area, the pigment which determines our hair and skin colour.

Melanin absorbs the light energy during a VPL treatment and heats up quickly, whilst the surrounding skin remains cool. This rapid heating helps break up the concentration of excess melanin into smaller particles that are then removed by the body's natural waste processes. Imperfections are reduced and skin texture and tone is improved.

Wrinkles & Fine Lines

Collagen is the substance in our bodies that keeps our skin looking youthful and smooth. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.


The carefully filtered light from VPL systems stimulates fibroblasts cells in the body to produce more collagen. This new collagen moves outwards to the skin's surface resulting in a smoother texture, smaller pore size and reduced fine lines and wrinkles.

Acne

Acne is caused when pores become blocked by over production of sebum and dead skin cells. Once pores are blocked bacteria can build up and cause infection. This can result in acne.

VPL™ treatment improves acne vulgaris (active acne) by destroying anaerobic bacteria that causes the infection by producing an oxygen rich environment. VPL light also effectively reduces the inflammation associated with acne.

Acne is reduced significantly following a course of treatments and skin texture and tone is improved as VPL™ initiates further collagen production.

Rosacea

A skin condition resulting in severe redness and spots on the face caused by the dilation of tiny blood vessels below the skin's surface. Rosacea begins as outbreaks of flushing and redness on the face, but can also affect the neck, chest, scalp and ears. These blood vessels may become hyper-sensitive to certain triggers.

VPL treatment can help control the symptoms of rosacea, reducing redness and inflammation. The light energy is absorbed by the inflamed blood vessels, and the associated heating helps break these down. The body then recognises these broken vessels as waste and removes them naturally.

Permanent Hair Reduction

How it works

The Energist VPL treatment has been clinically proven to remove hair from all areas of the face and body. The variable settings mean that it can effectively treat the different types of hair found all over the body, from thicker bikini hair to finer facial hair.  Hair removal with Energist VPL™ is safe, easy and effective. It uses short, controlled pulses of filtered light which are absorbed by the melanin, the pigment found in the hair. This absorption process produces heat, which travels down the hair, affecting the follicle’s ability to regenerate. Hundreds of hair follicles are treated with each pulse, making Energist VPL a fast and effective way to treat unwanted hair.

VPL-HAIR-REMOVAL

Your Consultation

You will receive a full consultation with a fully trained therapist who will assess your suitability and answer any questions you may have. Your therapist will advise you on the best course of treatment, depending on your skin type, the area to be treated and the colour of the hair. After your consultation your therapist will perform a patch test on your skin before progressing with the treatment.

The Treatment

The hair in the area will be trimmed, preferably shaved, and a cooling gel applied to ensure that the light energy is used to achieve the best results with minimal heating to the skin. Protection is also applied around area being treated to ensure only the targeted area is exposed to the light. The Energist VPL applicator will be placed on to your skin and flashed in a series of shots to treat the area. The treatment is fast and some areas can take as little as five minutes. Immediately after the treatment the area will feel warm with slight redness which will calm down quickly. Follicle swelling is also a normal reaction. The hairs treated will fall out naturally over a period of one to three weeks.
