1For a great compact medical aesthetic system that gives superb return on investment and clinical results, look no further than E- Light. With the versatility of high power multi-functional E- Light applications, it offers a cost effective and flexible solution for beauty clinics.

E-light provides permanent hair removal and also improves the appearance of photo aged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most being brown pigmented lesions and broken capillaries through a process called photo rejuvenation. Innovative applications of E-light treat facial vascular erythema and pigmentary sun damage in a single program.

How does it work?

E-light systems work on the same principles as lasers in that light energy is absorbed into particular target cells with colour (chromophores) in the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy, which causes damage to the specific target area. E-light systems are different to lasers in that they deliver many wavelengths (or colours) in each pulse of light instead of just one wavelength. Most IPL systems use filters to refine the energy output for the treatment of certain areas but E-light uses single wavelength crystal to provide treatment to all kind of skin. This enhances penetration without using excessive energy levels and enables targeting of specific chromophores (these are skin components that absorb light).

E-ligt therapy is considered a non-ablative resurfacing technique, which means that it targets the lower layers of skin (dermis) without affecting the top layers of skin (epidermis). The results are not as dramatic as ablative resurfacing where both the dermis and epidermis are injured to produce a much more noticeable overall outcome. The advantage of E-light therapy is its minimal downtime – a patient can often have the procedure done in their lunch break and return to work immediately afterwards.

Treatments

Vascular lesions
  • For the treatment of spider and thread veins, and some vascular birthmarks.
  • Light pulses targeted at the red-pigment (haemoglobin) in the blood which heats and destroys the pigment without affecting the skin or other tissues.
Pigmented lesions
  • For the treatment of age spots, freckles, flat pigmented birthmarks and other skin discolouration problems such as melasma / chloasma and erythromelanosis of the neck (poikiloderma of Civatte).
  • Light pulses targeted at the melanin in the skin’s surface which heats and destroys melanin to remove the discolouration.
Hair removal
  • For the treatment of unwanted hair.
  • Light pulses targeted at the hair follicle causing the hair to fall out and prevent further growth. Generally ineffective for light coloured hair.
  • May be used for hair in any location including underarms, bikini line, face, neck, back, chest and legs
