VPL Permanent Hair Reduction

About service​

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.

The Treatment.
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.
