Q: How does Epilfree work to reduce/eliminate hair from the body?
A: Epilfree eliminates hair growth with two solutions that work in perfect synchronization with one another to open the hair shaft to allow the penetration of an activator that inhibits hair growth.
The Activator (Toner A) was developed with a high pH in order to enlarge the pores and increase the hair shaft gate by 4 times. This allows Toner B to penetrate faster and deeper into the skin to permanently affect the cell, which is in dividing process. There are also ingredients that keep the hair shaft hygienic.
The Inhibitor (Toner B) was developed based on the botanical knowledge and cosmetic scientific formulation expertise of Dr. Yoel Konis PhD in order to affect the hair cell when it is in the dividing process. The composition of the expertly chosen ingredients works on the live cells at the base of the hair shaft to render them incapable of producing any more hair growth. One of the ingredients in the Toner B limits the amount of respiration activity to the dividing cell exclusively in the epidermis layer.
This action is target specific and will affect the dividing cell only under the condition that the hair follicle is totally empty. The hair shaft, root seed have to be totally removed through the epilating process.
Q: What are the advantages of the Epilfree system compared with Laser or Electrolysis?
A: The Epilfree System is suitable for all hair types & colors; including red, blonde, grey and downy hair. There is no risk of skin damage that some people are prone to as a result of optical depilation procedures and there is no limitation on exposure to the sun after treatment. Treatments may be offered at a competitive price compared to more expensive laser & electrolysis, which allow it to be more accessible to more people. It works where and when laser won’t and can complement laser and electrolysis services. It completes, not competes with them.
Q: Who can receive the treatments?
A: The treatment is intended for women and men of all ages. It can be used on any treatment area.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A: A series of 8-12 treatments is typically needed to effectively reduce the hair in most areas. The need for a series of treatments is due to the way that hair grows in stages, with only about 10-15% of the hair on your body at any one time in the growth stage where Epilfree is effective. The exact number of treatments needed varies among individuals and body parts.
Q: How soon will I see results?
A: Typically results become visibly obvious after 2-3 treatments with a full course of 8-12 treatments required to stop most of the hair growth. The speed of visible results varies among individuals and body parts, but in general, about 10-15% of hair reduction is seen per treatment. A slowing of hair growth and a lightening of the regrowth hair are additional side benefits experienced by many people.
Q: How long will the results last? Will the hair grow back?
A: As with laser, the hair cannot be expected to grow back unless there are major changes in hormonal elevations or illness may cause more hair to grow. It is imperative you discuss with your client their wishes for long-term hair removal in each area you are treating and they understand the permanent nature of the service.
Q: Will it help with ingrown hairs / razor bumps?
A: Yes, in addition to reducing the re-growth of hair, it will soften dark course, curly hair that is usually the cause of severe ingrown hair. Do not use if infected, as the hair root should not be removed in this instance.
