What is Exilite Hair Removal?

Exilite is a treatment device that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) energy to treat various skin problems, such as acne, vascular lesion, photo-rejuvenation, as well as hair removal. Exilite Hair Removal is a non-invasive treatment to reduce the appearance of unwanted hair. It is one of the best IPL hair removal treatment. You might also be familiar with IPL laser hair removal. One of those varieties of laser hair removal treatments is the use of intense pulsed light. There are so many IPL devices for hair reduction in the market. Some of them even offer at home laser machine for hair removal. However, having a hair removal treatment at home without medical supervision is not recommended and the result might not be effective. If you have been wondering the best hair removal machine which deliver a painless and effective result, Exilite Hair Removal is the answer.

How does it work?

Like other laser hair removal treatments, Exilite Hair Removal works to destroy hair follicles, so the new hair does not grow back. This IPL hair removal uses multiple wavelengths (polychromatic) light energy to target hair follicles. The Exilite device emits a broad spectrum of light and is absorbed by the skin. This light then turns into heat that can destroy hair follicles. As a result, hair starts to fall out and new hair growth slows down significantly, giving you hairless smooth skin.

What is the treatment like?

Exilite Hair Removal is a quick procedure. The procedure takes 30-60 minutes to be completed. However, before starting the procedure, our doctor will determine whether you are suitable for this treatment. You will also need to shave at least 24 hours before treatment. There is no anesthesia required for Exilite Hair Removal. This treatment is non-invasive, the light energy penetrates to the deeper layer of the skin without damaging the upper layer of the skin, makes it the best IPL hair removal device

A cool gel will be applied on the treated area before the handpiece applicator of Exilite is placed. During the treatment, to protect your eyes from light radiation, you will wear safety goggles. When the light emits to your skin, you will feel like snapped by a rubber band. You may also notice a flash of light appears.

What to expect after having Exilite Hair Removal?

Immediately after the treatment, you can return to your normal activity. Side effects such as redness may occur but will subside immediately. Even though you need several sessions to get maximum results, you can see positive results after the first session. Your unwanted hair is reduced. The dead hair will fall out over the next 2-3 weeks. 

The result of Exilite Hair Removal may vary for each patient, depending on the hair color. Due to the use of light energy, Exilite Hair Removal shows the best result on darker hair. It is because darker hair tends to absorb more light rather than lighter hair. It is similar to when we wear a black dress on a sunny day. However, Exilite Hair Removal is still effective for all hair as long as the hair bulb has dark pigment, such as brown, black, or red. If you have lighter hair, you may consider Fotona Laser Hair Removal, our best hair removal laser which is suitable for all hair colors.

What are the post-care after having Exilite Hair Removal?

After the procedure, your skin will be more sensitive. Make sure to treat and clean the treated area gently, do not rub or scratch. During 24 hours, you need to keep the treated area clean and dry and avoid using deodorant, lotion, or moisturizer. To reduce the chances of pigmentation, avoid excessive sun exposure, and don't forget to apply your SPF. Hot showers and a sauna are also not recommended. Swimming can be done three days after the treatment. The swimming pool has the potential to increase the side effects because of strong chlorine and bacteria. Any treatments such as scrubbing, exfoliating, and chemical peeling are needed to avoid for about a week. 

You may notice some new hair grow about 1-4 weeks after the treatment. The hair is not new, but dead hair that is pushed out from its damaged follicles. To let the hair out, do not pick, wax, tweeze, or use hair removal cream, these may disrupt the hair growth cycle. On the other hand, you can shave or gently rub them.

What is the difference between IPL and Laser Hair Removal?

Both IPL and laser hair removal work to reduce unwanted hair and prevent them from growing back by destroying hair follicles. The main difference between IPL and laser hair removal is the use of light they emit. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light (polychromatic), while laser uses only single light. Because of the use of these multiple wavelengths, IPL can cover a larger area than laser which uses a single wavelength to target a specific area. However, because the laser targets a more specific area in one direction, the hair follicles can be damaged quicker than IPL. In a comparison of both technologies, IPL hair removal requires more sessions than laser hair removal. You can read more about our laser hair removal here.
Both IPL and laser hair removal provide high intensity and show effective results. Some patients report that IPL is less painful than lasers. If you are still unsure which one is suitable for you, we offer a free consultation (link to Book an Appointment) to determine the most effective treatment for you to deliver the best result.
How many sessions do I need?

Exilite Hair Removal requires some sessions for optimum results. Most patients need 4-8 sessions to remove unwanted hair effectively, depending on hair color and hair thickness. Each session can be scheduled every three weeks.
Does Exilite Hair Removal remove the hair permanently?

Yes, the hair follicles that are completely damaged can not regrow hair. This is one of the benefits of Exilite Hair Removal. However, please note that there is no one-time treatment that can remove all hair permanently. Thus, several sessions are required to destroy all hair follicles and prevent them to regrow.
Why do I need several sessions of Exilite Hair Removal?

It is not only Exilite Hair Removal that needs several sessions but all hair removal laser devices. It is because each hair follicle has its phase of growth. At the same time, when the treatment is done, not all hair follicles are in the growth phase. Those hair follicles that have not been destroyed yet usually will grow thinner and much slower. This is why you need several sessions to continue to destroy the undamaged hair follicle.

Compared to waxing, shaving, tweezing, and using hair removal cream, Exilite Hair Removal provides you more benefits including a painless treatment, more comfortable, more effectiveness, and giving you permanent results.
