• Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatments

    Pure + simple chose the Sharplight's Omnimax system because it proved to give better and 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.

    Q: How many treatments are required?

    A: The typical regimen is 8 short treatment sessions over a period of 1 month to reduce papules and pustules by 60 - 65 %.

  • Hair Removal

    Pure + Simple is using innovative and safe med-aesthetic systems that offer lasting hair reduction/removal results with minimum discomfort in a relatively small number of treatment sessions. The advanced technologies, based on pulsed light or photo epilation, enables personalized, precise treatments that achieve effective, permanent results. Using these technologies, the hair reduction is achieved when energy is transformed to heat in the active growth follicles, coagulating the follicle and limiting regrowth. The technology's high heat power delivers noticeable results in less time and these results are targeted so as to protect the surrounding skin.

    Q & A for IPL Hair Removal

    Q: What is the average rate of hair growth?

    A: About 0.35 mm a day, but this varies depending on body area, age and gender.

    Q: How many treatments are required?

    A: The typical regimen is 5 - 7 treatment sessions, spaced 4 - 12 weeks apart, depending on the body area.

    Q: Why are multiple treatments necessary?

    A: About 20 - 25% of human hair follicles on the body are in the active growth phase at any given time.

  • Photo Rejuvenation

    IPL is a highly versatile, safe and effective Light Treatment, which involves light pulses penetrating deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production. This results in an improvement in the appearance of our skin by reducing fine lines, redness, acne, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation.

    It was first introduced to dermatology 20 years ago in Europe, and has since been popular for reversing skin aging. Backed up with data and studies from over the last 20 years, the latest technology can drastically improve your skin's health.

    IPL treatment includes the use of intense light pulses which penetrate deep into the skin. This causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines. This treatment produces excellent long-term results, which reduces the appearance of facial lines, redness from broken capillaries, skin pigmentation, acne, and scarring.

    The number of treatments needed to attain the desired results depends on the IPL machine and the skill of the technician. With the latest IPL technology, results are visible after the first session and drastic improvements can be seen after only 5-8 treatments.

    Treatments can be clinical in nature but the best results are achieved when combined with a professional facial, a cooling collagen mask, and a relaxing massage.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: How does light-based technology work?

    A: Light-based technology is based on a method called "selective photothermolysis", which works by selective destruction of a specified target without damaging surrounding tissue. When treating textural complaints such as fine wrinkles and large pores, the light stimulates the growth of collagen which makes the skin glow and more youthful.

    Q: Are IPL treatments painful?

    A: No. During the procedure, a light, a momentary stinging sensation may be felt, but not pain.

    Q & A about IPL treatments for Pigmented Lesions and Rosacea

    Q: How does the treatment work on superficial blood vessels?

    A: The applied IPL - DPC (pulsed light) is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin in the blood within the vessel, causing the blood to coagulate and the vessel to break up into particles that are naturally filtered away through the lymphatic system of the body.

    Q: How does the treatment work on pigmented lesions?

    A: Targeted areas absorb the applied light, breaking the pigmented lesion into tiny particles which then disappear or rise to the surface of the skin as scabs. Which naturally exfoliate within 1 - 2 weeks

    Q: How many treatments are required?

    A: They typical regimen is an average of 6 treatment sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart.
