Villabianca - New Techniques for Hair Removal

Innovation at Villabianca Dermatology!

Technology that targets: white hairs, light hairs, very fine dark hairs.

"We know that body hair is not usually favoured."

The desire is to get rid of unwanted facial or body hair permanently:

  • - ones that are clear
  • - ones that are very thin on the cheeks
  • - ones that are very thin on the upper lip or on the arms
  • - but using Laser does not succeed in "clearing up" everything

We have come to the conclusion that with LASER Epilation, which is the usual method, does not always give you the desired results.

Why is this? Here's a little Science!
Laser works by contrast, each laser emits a very precise light (a wavelength) with a lot of energy. This energy is absorbed by the complementary colour. Then the electronic treatment of the laser emission prevents too much energy being delivered around the target, which is the hair, to avoid damage to the skin.

And so it has been difficult to treat a dark hair on a darker skin, because there is no contrast between the target and the environment, a light hair because it doesn't have a complementary colour, and it has been difficult to treat a deeply implanted fine hair (in the upper lip for example).

Villabianca now has the solution!
Our Canadian friends have for years been the leaders in hair electrolysis technology using what is called mixed currents (blend). They have just created a new device called APILUS XCell [Dectro International], which is much more powerful, almost painless, and without risk to the surface of the skin, or of scarring.

The principle is that a very fine probe is introduced along the hair folicle. Once it is positioned in contact with the root of the hair, the application of a current adjusted to each hair type and treatment area is then delivered.

It is important to add that the camera within the device is ergonomically much more comfortable for the operator owing to the magnification of the image of the hair. Our operator is well experienced in this field and further more, has received indepth training with Dectro, the manufacturer of the machine.

The hair removing process is performed by concentrating on one hair at a time at a regular pace, and each session lasts approximately 20 to 30 minutes.

Villabianca now has weapons for hair destruction!
This laser, known as Cynosure ELITE, is now the way to treat hair that was resistant to previous lasers.

The added advantage is that Apilus electrolysis can be done in any season, even if the skin is tanned, and most importantly it is not painful.
