Epsil BSL-10 Hair Removal
Epsil Hair Removal System - Advanced Technology at a
This system of hair removal is
relatively new to the industry - but certainly offers a welcome reprive to the regular waxing sessions that many of
us over the years have endured in the name of vanity!
How does the Epsil BSL -
This IPL technology (Intense
Pulsed Light), works by sending a powerful laser flash down the length of the hair follicle. This process
transfers the latent heat from the light pulse into surrounding cells that are responsible for sustaining the hair
- soon leading to cells that are no longer capable of growing hair.
Who Can be Treated - can anybody use this therapy?
Those with dark hairs (or hair with more melanin) obtain the most effective results with IPL
treatment, as the melanin in the hair yields the most heat into the surrounding tissue from the pulse flash.
Individuals with white or very light coloured hair generally do not benefit as much - and require a higher power
setting when using the Epsil BSL-10.
It is also important to note that those with dark skin (lots
of endogenous melanin) need to take extra care whilst using this therapy, as the skin itself tends to absorb the
emmitted light - thus less heat / pulse intensity along the shaft of the hair.
It is therefore necessary to
treat such an individual on a much lower setting - which inevitably lengthens the time in which hair reduction will
How many Treatments are Necessary - Do I Use it
Generally, 4 - 6 treatments
with IPL Laser Technology is required. The reason for this is that hair tends to grow in cycles, and the
number of hairs within any given cycle of hair growth ranges from 20 - 90% (depending on the person and body area).
Each growth cycle also varies in time, from 6 - 24 weeks, so IPL laser therapy is for those who are diligent.
Let it be known that after the first treatment most users experience a
signifigant reduction in regrowth, with subsequent hairs tending to be much finer &
It is important to know that
the first treatment with UPL - type laser systems is thought to "synchronise" the anagen (growth) phase of the
non-anagen hairs. It may thus appear to stimulate more hair growth, , but in fact it is just stimulating the new
hairs to grow at the same time as the new growth. This in turn makes further treatments more
