Hair Removal
 
 
Hair Removal is one of the most popular procedures performed all over the world.
In order to remove hair we coagulate hair follicles.
In order to coagulate only the hair follicles and not the surrounding tissues, we need a difference of color between the hair follicle and the surrounding tissues.
 
  • The difference is based on color. The darker the area the more light (heat) will it absorb.
  • The color of the surrounding dermis does not change over time.
  • The color of the hair follicle changes according to the hair’s growth phase.
  • The best Hair Removal is achieved when the contrast between the hair follicle and the surrounding tissues is at its peak.

The Right Stage for Hair Removal
 
Anagen (the first phase of the hair growth cycle) is the optimal stage to remove hair. This is because:
 
  • There is a high concentration of melanin, making the dermal papilla area darker than its surrounding
  • There is a higher concentration of blood vessels, contributing to the darkening of the dermal papilla area.
 
 
Therefore, when heated, the dermal papilla region will absorb more energy and coagulate before its surrounding.
 
Active's solution does not rely on melanin alone to remove hair, but also on exhausting the energy of the matrix cells and the dark hemoglobin found in the capillaries. This combination makes hair removal possible for many types of hair colors, including for grey hair
 
 
How Does The Treatment Work?
 
Light-based technology removes hair in three ways:
 
  • Ruining the follicle by coagulating the melanocyte and matrix cells.
  • Clotting the follicle capillaries with heat energy, which means less food and oxygen to the hair follicle.
  • Triggering matrix cells to operate calcium pumps and exhaust the cell’s energy, resulting in inhibition of the cellular metabolism.
Those three processes back up one another, so if one does not provide results, the two others will.
 
 
 
 
Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
 
 
What Happens To Our Skin As We Grow Older?
 
Young skin is elastic, firm and has no wrinkles. Old skin, however, is thin and wrinkled. The reasons for the difference lie in the dermis layer:
 
 
  • Nutrition:
 
 The dermis is responsible for the nutrition of the basal cells layer in the epidermis. This layer generates cells and gives the skin its thickness and volume. As we get older the nutrition process is not as intensive and effective as it used to be when we were young, resulting in thinner skin.
 
 
  • The finger-like structure of the dermis creates:
  •  
    A larger surface between the dermis and the epidermis, which means more nutrition to the basal cells
    A better grip between the two skin layers; the dermis and the epidermis, resulting in a firmer looking skin.
     
     
  • Collagen and elastin fibers – Form a supportive web - beneath the finger-like layer of the dermis.
  •  
    The thicker this web is, the more elastic and flexible the skin will be. In older people the fibroblast cells that build this web receive less nutrition. Consequently they generate less collagen, resulting in wrinkles and loose skin.
     
     
     
     
    Skin Rejuvenation with Light-Based Technology- How Does it Work?
     
     
    • Illuminating the skin with light (photons).
    • Absorption of the photons by the cell’s mitochondria and by the inner cell’s chromophores.
    • An elevation of ATP synthesis (ATP = Adenosine Tri-Phosphate, the cell’s energy molecule).
    • Increased protein synthesis, growth and cell’s proliferation.
    • Enhanced collagen and elastic fibers production.
    • Rejuvenated looking skin.
     
    Active's GEM-PL Technology uses specific dose (Only a few milliseconds per pulse) and intensity of wavelengths, around 420nm to enable optimal results in the production of collagen and elastic fibers.
     
     
     
     
    Vascular (Facial) Treatment
     
     
    The appearance of spider-like capillaries is one of the signs time leaves on our skin. They may be found anywhere on our body surface, but usually bother us most when found on our face.
     
     
    How Do Spider-Like Capillaries Form?
     
    Telangiectasia, or broken capillaries get their color from clotted RBC (Red Blood Cells).
    These capillaries can be seen and get their color due to weakness of the one-way valves found in the veins. Once the valves are weak, vein blood with little oxygen can stay in the capillarie instead of being pumped to the heart. Since these capillaries are very narrow, blood cells may get "stuck" in them. Other RBCs that flow into the same capillary get stuck behind the first ones, forming a layer of clotted blood, which gives the capillary its color. The capillaries are best seen when they are near the skin surface, or when the skin becomes too thin due to a decreased collagen production.
     
     
    How Does The Treatment Work?
     
    Two treatments are administered in order to treat the capillaries:
     
    • Breaking the layer of clotted blood and re-opening the capillary, resulting in free blood flow through the capillary and the disappearance of the purple color.
    • Stimulating the collagen layer to produce more collagen, resulting in thicker skin which conceals the capillaries.
     
     
     
     
    Pigmentation Treatment
     
    Solar lentigo, or as more commonly known, age spots, sun spots or liver spots are blemishes on the skin associated with age and exposure to UV radiation from the sun. They range in color from light brown to black and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms, forehead, and the head if bald. Light-based technology helps in safe and quick removal of those spots.
     
     
    How Do Pigmented Lesions Form?
     
    Pigmented lesions, or age spots are caused by an increased number of pigment-producing cells (Melanocyte) in the skin. They occur in response to long-term sun (UV radiation) exposure and associated with aging of the skin. The skin tends to get thinner with age. This causes older people to have pale, translucent skin. Melanocytes activity tends to increase and more melanin is produced. Chronic sun damage speeds up the development of these spots.
     
     
    How Does The Treatment Work?
     
    The melanocytes absorb the energy of the light pulse. This light energy turns into heat energy that coagulates the melanocytes selectively. New cells are later formed without this high concentration of melanin and the skin is renewed.
     
     
     
     
    Acne Treatment
     
    Acne is a cause of suffer and discomfort to many people around the world who have to deal with it daily.
    The introduction of light-based technology solutions created a revolution in Ance treatment. The treatments are much shorter, easier and more effective.
     
    How Does Acne Form?
     
    • Increased activity of the sebaceous glands which secrete more sebum.
    • The opening of the hair follicle gets blocked.
    • Lack of oxygen causes the rapid multiplication of the P. Acne bacteria that lives inside the hair follicle.
    • The immune system reacts by fighting the bacteria, leading to an inflammation.
    • This inflammation results in the appearance of pimples and lesions that might develop into scars.
    • As long as the bacterial activity continues, the inflammation continues and the acne flourishes.
     
     
    How Does The Treatment Work?
     
    As part of a routinely metabolism process, the P. Acne bacteria generates an organic compound called porphyrin. High intensity broad spectrum light (Especially blue light) triggers the porphyrin to release single oxygen atoms (Free radicals). These free radicals are seeking other atoms to attach themselves to. They make connections to molecules they are not supposed to connect to, and by doing so they ruin the functionality of these molecules. The activity of many single oxygen atoms destroys the P. Acne bacteria.
