What is the difference between Laser, traditional IPL & Diamond Rapid Glide ( DRG)

Laser or IPL technologies employ short     impulses of approximately 2-300 milliseconds, applying a vast amount of energy (12-120 J/cm2) which is transported to the hair root exclusively  through melanin (pigment). Skin & red blood cells have  similar absorption to melanin and therefore also absorb the higher levels of energy produced by the laser and IPL methods. DRG technology, on the other hand, utilises the melanin pathway only partially (50%) and is therefore kinder to the skin and can also treat blonde, red and lighter less pigmented hair.

By combining In-Motion technology, DRG gently warms the skin aiding penetration down to the follicle root.  Research has shown that a slower, but longer heating process is considerably more effective for permanent hair removal than high and short levels of high energy. When using DRG, the device is passed over the area to be treated multiple times using low energy but a high rate of repetition (up to 10Hz, i.e. 10 times per second) instead of using the traditional method of single, high-energy  impulses. Thus, the hair melanin, as well as the tissue of the stem cells, is heated with low energy at a slow pace and over a longer period of time to a temperature of 45° Celsius resulting in a more comfortable treatment.  The refrigerated hand piece simultaneously cools and soothes the skin.  The result is a faster, more thorough hair

 

 

Things you need to know before you commence treatment...

Prior to beginning your hair removal journey your clinician will fill out a detailed consultation to make sure you are safe to treat.  In some instances we may require a patch test and also an “ok” from your Doctor.

  • No suntanning for 4 weeks prior to treatment

  • Wear SPF 30+ daily leading up to treatment

  • No fake tan 1 to 2 weeks prior.  Please  thoroughly remove any residual  self tanning product before your treatment.

  • Do not wax, pluck or “Epilate” for 4 weeks prior

  • If you are prone to cold sores on your face please take Zovirax or Lysine—one per day for a week leading up to treatment

  • Please shave 2 days prior to treatment

  • Do not use creams, sunblock or makeup on the area to be treated for 24 hours prior to appointment. 

  • Please check that any medications you are taking do not cause photosensitivity.

 

Things you need to know after your treatment...

You may experience a sensation similar to mild sunburn for 6  to 12 hours.  Treat as you would sunburn   with cool compresses and / or cooling  Y natural 703 Aloe Gel  or Lavender Hydrosol. 

Anything that you experience more severe than this should be phoned in to your clinician immediately. 

  • Do not use hot water on the treated area or expose your skin to excessive heat or sun.

  • Do apply  SPF 30+ daily and or the recommended  BB/CC cream or Mineral Powder

  • Do not apply deodorant to the underarms

  • Do use the recommended products aloe gel and rosehip to assist in the skin healing process and for ongoing care. Well hydrated skins respond better to treatment

  • Make sure that you receive your next      treatment in the 3 to 4 week time frame for optimal results.
