PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION AND SKIN REJUVENATION WITH CHROMOLITE IPL
WHAT IS CHROMOLITE?
CHROMOITE is an Intense Pulse Light System which emits a unique band of light “SMARTLITE TM” from a handpiece held against your skin.
WHAT CAN CHROMOLITE DO FOR ME?
CHROMOLITE offers non- invasive, safe and effective hair removal for all skin types and most hair colours including blonde.
CHROMOLITE also offers non-invasive safe and effective skin rejuvenation, pigmentation removal, vascular and acne treatments.
HOW DOES CHROMOLITE WORK?
The SMARTLITE TM technology emits a dual band of yellow and red light which is particularly effective for both hair removal and skin rejuvenation.
With hair removal, the red light targets the melanin within the hair shaft causing the follicle temperature to rise and consequent destruction of the follicle. Whilst the yellow light destroys the blood supply to the germ cells preventing any possibility of re-growth.
By using yellow light the CHROMOLITE can also be used effectively on red and blonde hair unlike the average IPL.
For skin rejuvenation the SMARTLITE energy is increased allowing the yellow light to safely destroy vascular lesions such as facial veins and the red light is used to reduce unwanted pigmentation.
DOES CHROMOLITE HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
With the majority of treatments there are little or no visible side effects so you can resume your normal routine quickly. Some parts of the body are more sensitive than others and may redden or swell slightly; an aftercare gel can be applied to settle this within hours.
It is important to avoid sun and sun beds for at least 4 weeks before and after treatment and to wear a sun block with a factor 30.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
For hair removal the number of treatments requires varies, depending on the density and location of the hair growth. Approximately 30% of the body hair is in a growing stage at any one time. The remainder is dormant and unable to absorb light.
CHROMOLITE will destroy between 60% and 90% of the growing hair at each treatment. Most people require between 5 and 8 treatments on the body and 8 to 10 treatments on the face. However, extremely coarse, dense hair for instance, a man’s beard may take longer.
For effective skin rejuvenation a course of treatments are required. The number of treatments depends on the problem and its severity. Most people require 6 treatments or part treatments.

ELECTROLYSIS AND EPILATION
White and grey hair and the spiky hard facial hair need to be treated with a different method from IPL, and that is with epilation or electrolysis.
Epilation is the removal by shortwave diathermy (heat) causing the coagulation of the hair root and surrounding cells, and the eventual destruction of the hair-producing follicles.
Electrolysis is the removal by galavanic current (chemical means) where the chemical substances formed at the tip of the needle destroys the hair root and surrounding cells.
The course hair on the chin and corners of the mouth are often encouraged by constant plucking and need to be weakened by electrolysis or epilation and then if darker will react well to IPL treatment.
