The Palomar StarLux® system has emerged as the next generation of Pulsed Light System for cosmetic procedures. Elegant Image invested over $200,000 and introduced the StarLux® IPL/Laser system into our Day Spa. The StarLux® system allows us to offer the world's best modalities and practices for the treatment of unwanted hair, vascular lesions and pigmented spots.
We want the best for our clients and that is why we continually introduce the latest technologies and modalities, it ensures that they benefits from the latest skin care advances and ensures that we maintain aesthetic staff competency at the highest levels in the Beauty Industry.
Our decision to introduce Laser/IPL modalities came after 6 months of painstaking research, in the end our decisions to go with the Palomar StarLux® system.was based on several key technologies not available in other systems. These technologies make for safer, more effective, and more comfortable treatments, in particular for those modalities we were to spcialise in; permanent hair reduction and the removal of vascular lesions and pigmented spots.
Some of the Palomar StarLux® Systems benefits include:
Considering all its benefits, we found the Palomar StarLux® offered uparalleled ipl / laser performance. The unique combination of integrated skin cooling, high pulse energy, tuneable pulse duration, speed, and a wide range of handpieces make it one of the most flexible systems available, furthermore it allows us to tailor modalities targeted at client specific indications and at the comfort level they prefer.
StarLux® in combination with our Omnilux skin rejuvenation see us again leading the way in technology based skincare and (as with Omnilux) we are again the first organisation in the ACT region to offer treatments utilising this ground brealing ultra-safe and effective system.
The StarLux® system is able to deliver high energy to the desired area. The new, larger sized treatment tip, and faster pulse rates, greatly reduce treatment time.
The StarLux® system uses active cooling through the handpiece's sapphire tip and cools the skin to 4 degrees centigrade. This cooling permits our aestheticians to deliver high energy pulses while providing maximum comfort and safety to the client. The feedback from recipients are particularly pleasing particularly with its efficient effect on hair removal, it is done without the discomfort associated with the bulk older laser/IPL technologies.
Palomar's unique technology ensures a constant, smooth beam throughout each pulse, without the "power spikes" that other technologies use, which can cause pain and skin damage. The full, steady coverage of the treated area by the uniform beam allows a more cost effective faster permanent reduction of hair in fewer treatments, as well as increased patient safety and comfort.
Permanent hair reduction is defined as a long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs that grow back after a treatment regime. Such hair reduction after at least one complete growth cycle (2-4 months, depending on anatomical location) is considered permanent hair reduction. Clinical trials show that most people treated with appropriate energies achieve 10-20% permanent hair reduction following each treatment and the Starlux® System consistently delivers results at the higher levels.
Intense light emitted by the Palomar StarLux® System is absorbed by the dark pigment found in hair follicles. The light is "pulsed," or turned on, for only a fraction of a second, just long enough to disable the follicle. While the light energy is delivered, the unique contact-cooling handpiece helps protect the skin through conductive cooling. Furthermore, by delivering laser energy deep into the skin, the Palomar StarLux® System disables the parts of the follicle that produce hair, resulting in a consistent level of permanent hair reduction.
While you may feel a slight tingling sensation, most people tolerate the procedure very well.
Multiple treatments are generally required. The actual number depends on the color of your hair and skin, as well as factors such as hormone levels and hair follicle size. Consult one of our aestheticians, they can develop a treatment program that best fulfils your individual needs.
After-effects vary from client to client. Typically, within several minutes, the treated area may become slightly red and puffy. This reaction subsides quickly, usually within a day. Since the Palomar StarLux® does not cut the skin in any way, you can return to normal activity immediately. Most hairs fall out within 7-30 days of the treatment. Additional treatments can be scheduled every 1-3 months, until the desired endpoint is reached.
While other hair removal methods may cause skin irritation, Palomar's unique sub-zero contact-cooling handpiece provides added protection during treatment. Gentle compression of the skin by its cool, wide sapphire surface brings laser energy closer to the parts of the skin or hair that are being treated.
