Using the revolutionary Ultra VPL unwanted hair for most skin types can be removed for males and females from all parts of the body, including legs, chin, upper lip, bikini area, underarm, back and chest.
Laser works on the principle of selective absorption of the light in the melanin, colour in the hair or skin. This meant the skin had to be white and the hair dark for treatment to be most effective, which ruled out the treatment for most Asian skin tones.
Evolution has led to further advancements in the field with the Ultra VPL, which allows the clinician greater flexibility to vary the pulse and, therefore, tailor the treatment perfectly to the needs of the individual client making treatment much more successful than ever before and on a much wider range of skin tones and with a wider range of applications.

What is VPL?
Treatment Area/Spot Size 50x10mm. The Energist Ultra System is the most advanced hair removal & skin rejuvenation product available. Utilising state-of-the-art Variable Pulsed Light (VPL) technology, the Ultra System can be set-up to ensure the optimal parameters to provide a safe, fast and effective treatment for every individual. VPL technology is a revolutionary new technique, pioneered by Energist, for hair removal and all aspects of skin rejuvenation. Using short pulses of light energy, which can be varied in number, length and frequency, the VPL systems emit light across a range of wavelengths, allowing a greater range of more gentle treatments to be performed on virtually all hair and skin types. The safe and effective VPL technology helps to remove and improve the effects that age, hormonal activity and over-exposure to the sun can have on the skin. Using short, safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to help remove unwanted hair and skin perfections, and to improve texture and tone, VPL leaves skin clearer and smoother. Treating a wide range of conditions from unwanted hair, to active acne, thread veins, fine lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots and Rosacea, VPL technology is the way forward for beauty salons and clinics.
How VPL Works
VPL uses short, safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair quickly and effectively. Carefully filtered pulses of light are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process produces heat, which heats the hair, damaging the follicle along with its ability to regenerate. Hundreds of hair follicles are treated with each pulse, making VPL a fast and effective way to treat unwanted hair. The Ultra System has been designed to provide both safe and effective hair removal and skin treatments.
One VPL Shot
VPL minimises the discomfort by allowing the skin to cool during each shot.
Many skin complaints caused by ageing and sun damage can be successfully treated using the yellow light produced by the Ultra System. These include: redness, Rosacea, age/liver spots, acne, freckles, pigment changes, skin texture/ fine lines/skin rejuvenation, facial thread veins and leg veins.
Recent studies have shown that even active acne (Acne Vulgaris) has responded very well to phototherapy using yellow light.
