Hair Reduction with the Chromolite IPL System

The Chromolite Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) System is used to permanently reduce unwanted hair on the face or body. The Chromolite uses a Smart Lite Technology, which uses a combination of yellow and red light wavelengths in a unique flat beam profile to enhance treatment efficiency. The red wavelength absorbs into the pigment contained within the hair shaft itself and destroys the hair bulb. The yellow wavelength targets the blood in the minute blood vessels feeding the hair bulb thus interrupting this blood supply and damaging the hair bulb. This combination of targets allows for enhanced effect. However best results are achieved when treating dark hairs in light skinned patients. Treatment energy levels are set after a patch test procedure during the first treatment session where different power settings are tried out on the skin to discover the optimum energy level for the patients particular skin colour, hair colour and structure. Most patients need between four and eight sessions separated approximately one month apart to achieve good results. No IPL or Laser system will achieve 100% clearance of unwanted hair. However, selected clients who undergo a full course of treatment at the optimum energy levels should achieve 60% to 90% reduction in the hair growth.
