~ VPL Permanent Hair Reduction ~
Treatment price is determined upon a thorough skin health consultation with Alternate Therapeutics.
VPL from Energist Medical Group is the latest advance in Variable Pulsed Light technology. It is a quick, effective, and safe treatment for men and women offering a long-lasting hair removal solution.
Treat hair all over the body.
VPL treatment has been clinically proven to remove hair from all parts of the face and body. Successful treatment outcomes require multiple sessions and depends on areas treated and individual responses.
How does VPL work?
VPL treatments use short, safe, controlled pulses of filtered light to remove unwanted hair in minutes. Pulses of light are absorbed by melanin, the pigment found in hair. This absorption process heats the hair, damaging the follicle, along with its ability to regenerate. Hundreds of hair follicles are damaged with each pulse, resulting in an easy and effective way to treat unwanted hair.
Your hair type will be determined at your initial consultation at Alternate Therapeutics Atherton, and a test patch will be performed using the VPL settings that best suit your individual needs. A cooling gel will be applied to the hair in the treatment area ensuring the light absorption is optimised, to give maximum results from your VPL treatment. The VPL applicator is placed on the area of the skin to be treated. Your skin will then be exposed to a series of light pulses, flashing in rapid succession. The treatment is fast, comfortable, and effective.

Dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections are two of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Both procedures can help to reverse visible signs of ageing and improve or enhance appearance.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers restore lost volume to areas where collagen and elastin have broken down and show the signs of ageing. Many people think dermal fillers are generally only used to enhance facial features, such as lips and cheeks. However, dermal fillers are a highly effective treatment for correcting and rejuvenating appearance.
As the body ages, it produces less collagen and elastin. Face skin can appear thinner, dehydrated, and may start to sag causing unwanted lines, folds, and hollows. An injection of dermal filler can reverse visible signs of ageing around the eyes, cheeks, jawline and increase the volume of the lips to create a more hydrated, youthful appearance.
What are Anti-Wrinkle Treatments?
Anti-wrinkle injections help to eliminate and soften fine lines and wrinkles. The skin’s consistent muscle movements may begin to cause fine lines and wrinkles on the surface. Anti-wrinkle injections relax the muscles, allowing the skin to move into a more natural position and appear smoother and more youthful. This treatment is commonly used as an effective rejuvenation treatment for crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines.
