Variable Pulsed Light System - ENERGIST ULTRA


What is VPL?
Variable Pulsed Light is a safe and effective technology for treating skin imperfections.
Clinically proven to effectively treat acne, rosacea, thread veins, fine lines and wrinkles
and the visible signs of sun damage.
The variable pulses of light emitted from the Energist Ultra unit effectively
treats skin imperfections safely and easily, 
with none of the discomfort of invasive or surgival treatments.

How VPL works

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. Using short pulses of light energy,
which can be varied in number, length and frequency, the VPL systems emits light
across a range of wavelengths, allowing a greater range of more gentle treatments
to be performed on virtually any 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.

SKIN REJUVENATION - Treating Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Sun damage and the effects of ageing can leave skin looking tired and prematurely aged, resulting in skin imperfections
on the face and body The longer wavelengths in the VPL Laser light penetrate deeply to stimulate the underlying cells
to produce extra collagen. The collagen moves to the skin surface, leading to a tightening of the skin, refinement of pores
and a reduction of fine lines to improve the tone and texture of your skin.

Sun, liver and age spots are the result of an excess production of melanin, or skin pigment.
Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning beds, are all possible causes.
You’re most likely to develop age spots on the areas of your skin that receive the most sun exposure, including face, decolletage, back of hands, shoulders, upper back and forearms.
Age spots are more common in people with certain risk factors. These include:
- being older than 40 years old
- having fair skin
- having a history of frequent sun exposure
- having a history of frequent tanning bed use
Melanin absorbs the light energy during a VPL treatment and heats up quickly, whilst the surrounding skin remains cool.
The heat helps break up the concentration of the excess melanin into smaller particles which are then removed
by the body's natural waste process.

Acne is caused when pores become blocked by over production of sebum and dead skin cells. When pores are blocked, bacteria builds up and causes infection which can result in acne.
Acne is not dangerous, but can leave skin scars.

Causes of acne
Nobody is completely sure what causes acne. Experts believe the primary cause is a rise in the androgen hormon levels. Androgen levels rise when a human becomes an adolescent. Rising androgen levels make the oil glands under your skin grow. The enlarged gland produces more oil and excessive sebum can break down cellular walls in your pores,
causing bacteria to grow.
- Some studies indicate that a susceptibility to acne could also be genetic.
- Some medications that contain androgen and lithium may cause acne.
- Greasy cosmetics may cause acne in some susceptible people.
- Hormone changes during pregnancy may cause acne either to develop for the first time, or to recur.

VPL treatments improve active acne by destroying the bacteria that causes the infection by producing an oxygen rich environment, also effectively reducing the inflammation associated with acne.
Following a course of treatments, acne is reduced significantly and the texture of the skin is improved as VPL initiates further collagen production.

What should I do before and after VPL treatment?

- avoid direct sun exposure, spray tanning or sun beds for 6 weeks before and after the treatment.
   If you will be exposed to the sun, a high SPF sunscreen should be applied.
- avoid waxing or peeling or any kind of skin resurfacing for 2-3 weeks before and after treatment
- avoid any heavy or sweaty workouts within 24 hours of the treatment
- don’t apply any make-up to the area for at least 24 hours after the treatment
- don’t have hot showers for 24 hours, treated areas should be cared for by gentle washing with soap and water without          scrubbing or rubbing
- don’t scratch the treated area as it could cause scars


- taking Accutane or similar medication
- taking blood thinning medication
- pregnancy or breastfeeding 
- any injectable or fillers in the last 72 hours
- cold sores or fever blisters without premedication
- facial peels or waxing within 7 to 14 days
- type I diabetes
- recent sun exposure, spray tanning or sunbeds
- skin cancer
- epilepsy
- photosensitising drugs
- wearing a pacemaker
