Epilight Hair Removal

Epilight hair removal is a non-invasive non-surgical cosmetic treatment that delivers a number of benefits. Epilight hair removal utilizes cutting edge laser technology to provide a long term solution to unwanted hair on virtually any part of the body. The Epilight hair removal system uses controlled pulses of light to remove hair from a targeted area and arrest the hair growth process. Epilight hair removal is rapidly becoming one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures sought by men and women in the United States.

Epilight hair removal was approved by the FDA in the late 1990s as a safe and effective method of eliminating unwanted hair from the body. Since its approval, Epilight hair removal has been used by nearly half a million people who have reaped the many benefits of this procedure. The Epilight hair removal system allows a qualified professional to customize the treatment process to accommodate each patient according to hair color, texture, and location on the body. Epilight hair removal is safe and effective in treating the following areas: the upper lip, chin, legs, arms, back, chest, underarms, cheeks, ears, nose, and bikini line.

Depending on hair color, texture, and the size of the treatment area, an Epilight hair removal procedure can take anywhere between ten to fifty minutes. During this time, the Epilight hair removal professional will apply a cooling gel to the skin and use a hand held instrument to deliver pulses of light to hundreds of hair follicles simultaneously. During the Epilight hair removal procedure a patient may feel a mild sting comparable to a rubber band snap. The Epilight hair removal treatment is performed on an outpatient basis. Epilight hair removal patients are able to resume normal activities immediately following a treatment session.

To achieve the optimal results, a patient should seek four to six subsequent Epilight hair removal treatment sessions. No local anesthetic or pain treatment is required to complete the Epilight hair removal treatment process. About thirty minutes after the Epilight hair removal treatment a patient may experience mild redness and swelling in the treatment area, symptoms which subside within a few days. It is important for Epilight hair removal patients to avoid the sun after the procedure to mitigate the risk of sun-related complications.

Because Epilight hair removal is an elective procedure, health insurance will typically not cover the cost of the treatment. The cost of Epilight hair removal varies depending on the size of the treatment area but can range from two hundred to one thousand dollars per treatment session. Because the results of alternative treatments are so short lived, Epilight hair removal is a safe, cost-effective and hassle-free way to permanently eliminate unwanted hair.
