How does it work?
so what makes the Adena different? During traditional IPL hair removal procedures, the energy from high intensity flashes of light is absorbed by the chromophore melanin, which is responsible for the hair pigment in colour. Dark hair which is rich in melanin, readily absorbs this light and transfers it as heat into the surrounding capillaries. When the blood vessels are destroyed in high temperature, hair growth is prohibited. Adena is unique in that it does not rely on the hair pigment to absorb thr light energy, meaning it can effectively target those shades not so rich in melanin.
How many sessions are required?
The Adena can only treat hairs in the growth stage. Approx 20% of hairs are in this growth phase at any one time. Everyone is different and several sessions may be needed. After that, only 1 or 2 annual sessions will be needed.
Does it hurt?
For most people there is no pain. the feeling of the treatment is variable from one person to another. It depends on the concentration of melanin in the skin and the size and density of the hair.
What areas and skin types can be treated.
Any areas of the face or body can be treated with pulse light.
