“The treatment itself was pain free unlike the salon treatment and the surroundings made it comfortable and relaxing. A couple of days after the treatment I could see the difference and was really happy with the overall treatment. Emmalene is very professional and experienced and this shows in her work.”

Zeolight Intense Pulsed Light and Radio Frequency Combined Treatment
The Zeolight uses the combined energy technology of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) with intense pulsed light (IPL)
This increases selectivity and allows for deeper dermal penetration
Less optical energy is required, when combined with bi-polar RF, this improves the safety factor when treating all skin types
With the combination of RF with IPL you will be able to manage hair reduction with better results
Clients are advised that they may experience some level of discomfort during the treatment however most advise us they have felt little or no pain.
We do advise all clients that as the light energy is absorbed by the pigments (melanin and haemoglobin), the pain depends upon the concentration of melanin in the epidermis and the hairs combined. Consequently it hurts more in dark skinned people and those with dense, dark hairs.
A patch test is carried out prior to treatment so clients can see that the treatment is within their comfort level.
The facial treatment usually takes 10 minutes whereas both legs and an entire back take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. Treatment time is discussed in full during your consultation, we advise to allow approximately an hour for your pre-treatment consultation.
Dark hairs are most easily treated due to the large concentration of dark melanin in these, which gives maximum absorption and conversion of light energy to heat.
Very fair hair has less melanin and consequently less heat is produced making it slightly less certain of permanent destruction of the hair follicles.
Grey (white) hair has almost no melanin and cannot be efficiently treated. The upper skin layer, of the epidermis, also contains melanin and the concentration increases when the skin is exposed to UV light.
It is therefore necessary to treat dark skinned and tanned individuals with less energy to avoid generation of excess heat and pain in the skin. The Zeo Light computer has pre-programmed treatment suggestions for different hair and pigment types.
The Applicator (hand-piece) is placed in contact with the skin surface and the light pulsed through it onto the skin. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated.
Only hair in the growth phase can be treated. The number of hairs in this phase varies from 10% to 70% depending on the body site. The lengths of the growth cycles also vary. For most patients up to four to six treatments is enough with two to three months interval are sufficient to remove virtually all hairs.
After the first treatment most patients get a significant reduction in hair density also new grown hairs tend to become finer. It is important to know that the first treatment is believed to synchronise the anagen (growth) phase of the non-anagen hairs. This may cause what seems to be re-growth but which is actually just the sleeping hairs starting to grow at the same time (new growth). This in turn makes the next treatment(s) more effective.
Laser Hair Removal is the only clinically proven treatment for the removal of unwanted hair and has long lasting results, the majority of patients will see a reduction of between 80-90%. A course of treatments is required and can take up to 8 treatments to get this result, some clients will require less than this and some may need maintenance sessions after the course is completed. Most authorities would agree that using current laser and light technology it is possible to permanently remove hair.
We would advise that around your third treatment you will start to see results however a lot of clients have told us that after treatment one they see a noticeable difference. As you progress through the course we may increase the settings, we start on the low setting to ensure you are ok and that your skin doesn’t react, making sure you are comfortable with the laser.
Contrary to other treatments, hairs are not vaporised by the Zeo Light treatment, the hair follicles are killed by the heat but the hairs remain in the skin and often become attached to the epidermis. They will fall out after 1 to 3 weeks as the epidermis is renewed. During this period it will seem that the hairs are growing as the epidermis pushes them out, you may exfoliate the area to aid this.
The visible light is completely safe so no special precautions are needed apart from glasses for the brightness. The skin of some patients becomes quite red immediately after treatment and very rarely small blisters as from excessive sun exposure can occur. However, most patients experience no side effects at all and the described skin reactions above usually disappear within hours to a few days. Unlike electrolysis the Zeo Light treatment is non-invasive.
Clients should avoid tanning 1 month ahead of and during the entire treatment scenario to avoid excessive discomfort from excessive light absorption in the epidermis. Immediately after the treatment the skin is particularly sensitive to UV light and strong sunlight should be avoided for 7 days.
Hair can be up to 1- 2mm long when the client comes in for treatment, if the hairs are too long they take up the energy and prevent all of it reaching the hair follicle. Hair is trimmed just before treatment for maximum transmission of the energy. Clients may shave 24 hours prior to treatment although waxing, plucking, epilation and bleaching should not be done. By avoiding epilation and waxing 4 weeks before treatment it ensures as many follicles as possible contain a hair and thus can be destroyed by the light.
Laser Hair Removal is great for helping with ingrown hairs, clients have reported that after just one treatment most of the ingrown hairs have gone, a course should ensure that they are completely gone.
It is necessary to apply a thin layer of gel to the skin prior to treatment to assure an optimal optical transmission of light from the applicator to the skin. The gel also provides a cooling effect
Clients may experience a little redness after treatment and can last up to 8 hours, there will be little if no recovery time. You will need to avoid heat treatments, hot bath’s/showers, swimming, saunas directly after treatment and for 48 hours. Immediately after the treatment the skin is particularly sensitive to UV light and strong sunlight should be avoided for at least 7 days and a SPF30 sunblock applied to the treated area for at least one month if exposed to sunlight.
We recommend an interval of between 4 -8 weeks between treatments, hair growth has three stages so not all hairs can be treated in any one treatment due to the stage they are in (Growth, Resting, Transitional stages).
