Pure+simple chose the Sharplight's Omnimax system because it proved to give better + faster results with a lot less discomfort and almost no downtime than pre-existing methods. Light based technology is based on a method called "selective photothermolysis' which works by selective destruction of a specified target without damaging surrounding tissue. Omnimax's DPC technology maximizes our technician's control of treatment parameters, thus, providing a wide range of possibilities to obtain optimal results for all skin types, in most treatment cases, in all treatment stages. Thermo Electric Contact Cooling in this device maintains epidermal temperature at close to 5°C even during continuous treatment of extensive areas. This unique method guarantees maximum skin safety, patient comfort and no need for anesthetic gel.
