Applisonix Ultrasound Hair Removal - Burning of Skin Reaction

I have had about 6 sessions now for chin and upper lip - not really convinced it is working.

My question however is as follows -I had a treatment on Tuesday morning, on way into work - the burning sensation was quite intense - when I had questioned this before, I was told this was normal, as your site here seems to suggest.

However after my treatment, my skin felt it was on fire, and on looking in my car mirror, I had several welts on my skin which were raised and very unsightly. I had to go home first and put cold compress on skin to try and relieve the burning.

I naturally was asked several questions as to "OMG - what has happened to your face". These welts looked very much like burns. I was told my the therapist to put sudocrem on the sore patches which I did, as well as aloe vera gel.

6 days later the scabs have come off, but the area is still very red, with some more scabs appearing. I am worried that I may be permanently scarred. Is this normal?

Should they not check the machine with the manufacturer? Does it fall under the category of a medical device?

I have sent photos to the salon - and their response is they can only apologise.

thanks

After applisonix hair removal treatment, people often see reactions on the skin that can normally last up to 48 hours. A normal reaction would be for the skin to feel slightly sore and appear quite red and irritated. Some clients may even see swelling in the area.

However, if this does not subside after 48 hours you may be experiencing an adverse reaction to the treatment. Often in these cases scabs or blisters may appear on the skin, this indicates that perhaps the energy or heat used was quiet intense. You were advised to apply pseudo-cream or aloe-vera gel to help keep the area cool.

In doing so, it was normal for your scab to come off 6 days later and this should not have left any scarring.

In your email, you state that you saw new scabs appearing in the area, after the original ones came off. This is unusual and I personally think that it is unrelated to the treatment as otherwise you would have seen the scabs, blistering or bruising within 48 hours of your treatment, and it would not have been when your new scabs were forming.

Your reactions should not lead to any scarring, as our clients tend to see any redness or irritation subside within 48 hours.

Unfortunately I am unaware of the severity of the reaction you experienced from what you have said in your email. I would advise you to go back to your therapist regarding these reactions, as they will be able to give you the best advice on the matter.

I hope that helps.

Applisonix Using Ultrasound Hair Removal

by JMR
(Sheffield, UK)

Hi

I just had my first session of ultrasound hair removal (applisonix).

There were several occasions when I got a very acute burning sensation on the skin where I was being treated (upper lip) - is this normal for Ultrasound, as I heard it was supposed to be painless?

Also, my technician 'waxed' all of my top lip straight after the treatment - is this usual practice??

Many thanks

Reply It is very normal to get an acute burning sensation on the skin, if your treating the upper lip area, because that area is quite sensitive.

With Applisonx – What normally happens is a therapist will treat all the hairs that are present in the area, if some of the hairs are quiet short, then those will be left untreated. Once they have been treated you can either thread or wax over them or tweeze them out individually.

However, with Applisonx if your hair is very thick, black or brown then you’re probably better of trying laser hair removal treatment as Applisonx is a time consuming treatment. We used to actually do the treatment, but we are discontinuing this treatment due to the process being quiet long and also clients’ results are variable.

If your hairs are short you will get that burning sensation because the therapist will probably be going over the same hair and treating it a couple of times. It is supposed to be painfree, if your hairs are quiet long you would feel the discomfort or if they are quiet short on the upper lip you will feel the burning sensation.

Overall we are stopping the treatment as we feel it doesn’t work and it’s too time consuming.

Laser Hair Removal With Implants?

by Heather
(Kingston Upon Thames)

I'm thinking about getting electrolysis on my breasts as i have some hairs around the nipple area, but i have had breast implants.

I've read up a bit and it seems that most are happy to do the procedure if the implants were placed under the muscle however, mine are on top of the muscle.

Is there any way i can still have the procedure without risking piercing the implant?

Many Thanks

Answer: Had your implants been under your muscle I would have advised you to go with a safer option then electrolysis using my Applisonix machine which uses ultrasound energy to disable the hair pain free.

Although I feel the Applisonix machine will do the job I am unwilling to take the risk as the last thing we need is someone suing us if anything goes wrong!

Epilepsy and Laser Hair Removal?.

by April Lisa Dawn Luckham
(Hove, East Sussex, UK)

When I was very young I had epilepsy and mild seizures which has hopefully gone by now or has done, but I still have to be careful just in case by asking my doctor if I can have laser hair removal.

Answer: Normally we won't treat people with epilepsy unless you get a doctors note. If it's been a long time since you had epilepsy or seizures and depending on what area you may want treating there is a no risks option using ultrasound energy to kill the hair follicle using Applisonix

Applisonix Vs Soprano Laser


(Hayes)

Hi,
If I wanted to get hair removal done on my eyebrows (tops) I heard you use the Applisonix, will this give me as good results as the Soprano? and how many sessions are required?

Will it mean I will never have to thread my eyebrows again? or will I still require top up sessions and how is the hair likely to grow back e.g. finer ,a lot less or hardly any.

Thanks.

Answer We don’t do laser near the eyes as it’s too risky on the client.

We use our ultrasound hair removal machine called the Applisonix to remove hair around the eyes as the machine is very safe.

The Applisonix machine uses ultrasound energy and the client does not feel the hair coming out.

You will however, require 6 to 12 sessions to permanently re shape the eyebrows and maybe (and this is a big maybe) you will require a top up once a year.

Most of my clients have seen around 90 to 95% reduction in their eyebrow shape.

I myself have reshaped my eyebrows using this machine although you have to be dedicated attending the appointments and it is very time consuming as each hair has to be individually treated similar to electrolysis.

I hope that has answered your question and if you have time you can read more about the Applisonix machine by clicking this link.

Where Can I Use An Applisonix

Hi, I am an under 18 male, and I would like to permanently get hair removed between my eyebrows and on TOP of my nose, it's really embarrassing for me and I read on that any age clients can use an Applisonix. Can you please tell me where I can get this done and the pricing.

The hairs are medium-black and dark-black.

Please reply, thanks

Reply We have actually discontinued the Applisonix treatment because it was a very slow process and time consuming plus the results that we were getting weren't so good.

As you have medium –black and dark black hairs either electrolysis hair removal or laser treatment would work best.

I just need to know what type of skin you have because if you do have slightly black skin then you will be suitable for the YAG machine which is available in the Southall and Slough branch otherwise the soprano diode could also be good option.

My advise is to contact your nearest branch and book a consultation so that the therapist can have a look at your skin type and then suggest a treatment plan.

Ultrasound Hair Removal

by Bill
(Ealing)

Hi,

Have heard Ultrasound (Applisonix) is the best method for hair removal treatment, and much cheaper than laser. Still quite new technology and cant find many places that do it in the UK

What do you think?

Cheers
Bill

Answer Applisonix is actually more expensive then laser hair removal because of the slower treatment process. The treatments are time based for example 30 minutes on the applisonix costs £55 and a course of six sessions is £265. If you have an hour treatment then the cost is £50 and so on.

Also with a laser machine it cannot get rid of blonde, grey or fine hair whereas with the applisonix any colour hair can be treated using the ultrasound energy.

You'll find only a hand full of companies in the UK using the applisonix machine as its still a new technology. I do know it is very popular in Ireland, Spain and other European countries.

Does It work On Blonde Hair

by argosh
(ealing)

I HAVE SOME HAIR ON MY EARS AND THE HAIR IS BLONDE WOULD THIS TREATMENT WORK.

Answer: Laser does not work on blonde or grey hairs. The laser machine only works on darker hairs.

That's why I purchased the Applisonix ultrasound machine. This machine works on all skin types and hair colours. It's a painless procedure and my clients have seen really good results.
