Laser Hair Removal Course – 2 Days

Dates:

  • 28th & 29th November 2019

Theory, Demonstration, Practical & Testing

Medical grade Laser Hair Removal destroys the root of the follicle, destroying unwanted hair and preventing future growth. Medical grade removal is attracted to melanin (the pigment) within the follicle. The laser light is then converted into heat energy that destroys the root within the follicle and prevents future growth.

The principle of lasers is based on light absorption. In the same way that a black car will become hotter than a white car. This process is called photothermolysis. In Laser Hair Removal, the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) and transmitted down the shaft, disrupting the growth mechanism when it reaches the root. The light energy is transformed to heat energy and the follicle is heated to a critical temperature at which point it is cauterised. The laser disrupts hairs that are principally in the active growth (anagen) phase at the time of treatment. The laser is pulsed, or switched on, for a fraction of a second. The length of each pulse is just long enough for the follicle to be disrupted.

Hair colour and skin type are the two most important factors. Temporary loss almost always occurs, but for long term hair removal, the colour is a significant factor.

Also suitable for Nurses, Doctors, Medical or Cosmetic Professionals

Course Outline:

  • Fundamental concept of lasers
  • Wavelengths and skin interactions
  • Laser parameters
  • Hair growth and growth cycle
  • Fitzpatrick skin typing
  • Informed consent
  • Consultations
  • Test patches
  • Treatment programs

  • Post-treatment

IPL Hair Removal and Skin Rejuvenation Course – 2 Days

Dates:

  • 5th & 6th November 2019

Theory, Demonstration, Practical & Testing

The principle of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is based on light absorption. This process is called photothermolysis. IPL energy is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) and transmitted down the shaft, disrupting the growth mechanism when it reaches the root. The IPL energy is transformed to heat energy and the follicle is heated to a critical temperature at which point it is cauterised. IPL disrupts hairs that are principally in the active growth (anagen) phase at the time of treatment. Each pulse is just long enough for the follicle to be disrupted.

Photo Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment performed with medical-grade IPL. It is designed to target certain skin conditions, including pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, broken capillaries, redness, and rosacea.

The process works by using accurately targeted light energy to safely treat abnormal blood vessels or pigmentation. IPL stimulates the body’s natural healing process to assist in healing the condition, while also promoting the natural production of collagen, which leaves skin smoother and more evenly toned. Treatments have proven to generate substantial visible improvements in the skin without any downtime.

Our intensive IPL course includes an online theory component of skin physiology as a pre-learning module, followed by two days face to face. Day 1 is theory and day 2 is practical.

Course Outline:

  • Properties of light including wavelengths, fluence and pulse-width
  • Laser and IPL characteristics
  • Light and skin interactions
  • Skin typing
  • Test patching and safety
  • Hair growth cycles
  • Genetic and hormonal causes of excess hair

Despite the focus of this course being Hair Removal, there is brief exploration of:

  • Pigmentation
  • Vascular
  • Acne skin conditions
  • A focus on contraindications, risk factors, and an emphasis on reducing risk factors is also included
