Hair Removal with AFT Pulsed Light

Messy, painful and ineffective hair removal methods are now a thing of the past. Today, pulsed light with AFT (Advanced Fluorescence Technology) treats unwanted hair with quick and safe bursts of light. Involving no downtime, you can continue with all your regular activities immediately after treatment. This non-invasive and effective approach yields permanent hair reduction and long-term hair removal – anywhere on the body.

How does AFT pulsed light technology work?

During photo epilation, the pigment (melanin) within hair absorbs the light and converts it into heat. The hair transmits this heat into the hair follicle, which it destroys, without damaging the epidermis. Thus, the follicle cannot produce a new hair.

How long does an AFT pulsed light treatment take?

Able to cover relatively large areas at high speed, AFT pulsed light treats numerous hairs with each light pulse. While this method allows for unusually rapid hair removal, the exact amount of time required is determined by the size of the area being treated. The underarm usually takes five minutes, while the back or legs may require 45 minutes.

How many treatments are necessary?

All hair follicles go through periods of dormancy and growth. As AFT pulsed light only affects hair follicles that are actively producing hair at the time of the treatment, resting follicles must enter the growth phase before they can be effectively treated. For this reason, treatment must be repeated until all hair follicles have passed through the growing phase. Clinical studies indicate that three to six treatments are needed at intervals of between one to three months. Your physician will advise you regarding the optimal number of treatments for you.
