Laser Hair Removal has a handheld device that emits concentrated pulses of laser light. The hair’s pigment absorbs the light, which is then converted into heat. Then it targets the hair follicles, disabling or inhibiting future hair growth. 

At Elley Spa, we have the Elysion laser, which is integrated with ‘Crystal Freeze’ cooling technology and dual-wavelength / operating modes. It can help you achieve permanent hair reduction by delivering light energy to hundreds of hair follicles in a large area. This device works for all skin types and tones, from light to darker skin, as well as tanned patients. 

Why it is good for our environment

  • It reduces plastic waste: Razors are made of plastic and packaged using plastic; therefore, it leads to lots of unwanted waste. 
  • Shaving wastes tons of water, especially if you leave the shower running while you shave. 
  • Shaving creams give off volatile organic compounds, which contribute to environmental problems. 
  • Wax strips are required to be disposed of straight after use, and most don’t break down for years and goes into landfill. 

But laser uses light to target and remove hair and does not produce any waste.

First of all, it is good to know LED therapy is one the most effective solution to treat Acne, muscle and joint pain, Hair Restoration, and wound healing.

What is Light Therapy?
Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy applies light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can: increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, decrease wrinkles, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone and wrinkles, texture and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis and kill acne bacteria, and much more.

How Does Light Energy work?
Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoreceptors in the mitochondria and is used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes, which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. In an article, “Therapeutic Light” -by Chukuku S. Enwemeka, PT, PhD, FACSM, wrote “other reported mechanisms of light-induced beneficial effects include modulation of prostaglandin levels, alteration of somatosensory evoked potential and nerve conduction velocity, and hyperemia of treated tissues.
The resultant clinical benefits include pain relief in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, ankle sprain, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis, and post-herpetic neuralgia, as well as tissue repair in cases of diabetic ulcer, venous ulcer, mouth ulcer,fractures, tendon rupture, ligamentous, tear, torn cartilage, and nerve injury.”

What is Celluma?
Cellumais unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to treat a wide variety of conditions safely. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signalling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and kill bacteria, while others enhance localised circulation.

At Elley Spa, we use the same machine to treat and improve skin conditions. LED light therapy can be combined with most treatments. After Laser Hair Removal for sooting effect, combined with Algae Facial to treat Acne skin or back facial to treat back Acne ( which many people, especially men, suffer)
Also, at Elley Spa, after Carbon Peel or Rejuvenation, LED therapy can be applied with even better results.
Clients who suffer from joint pain or lower back pain have LED therapy after their massage or after having a pedicure or manicure.

Fungal nail infections are a common condition. Fungal nail is not a severe condition, but they can take a long time to treat. 

Usually, Fungal nail infections begin at the edge of the nail as a white or yellow spot under the tip of the fingernail or toenail. If the infection goes deeper and spreads to the middle or affects several nails, and may cause more discolouration, thickening and crumbling at the edge. Finally, the nail becomes brittle, and pieces can break off, then the whole nail lifts off. 

To treat a fungal nail infection, GP can prescribe an antifungal table which may take up to 6 months to treat the fungus. However, tablets can cause sued effects such as headaches, itching, loss of taste and feeling sick and diarrhoea. 

One another very effective treatment is a laser to destroy the fungus.  

The heat from a laser penetrates through the nail to the nail bed, where the fungus exists. The laser targets the area of infection; the heat produced inhibits the growth of the fungus and destroys it.

At Elley MediSpa, we offer laser fungal treatment, and the price range starts from £50. Please feel free to contact Elley Spa for more information.
