About our Machine:
Optima-518 is a Photo Thermolysis Machine which is highly affective for hair removal and a wide range of skin care treatments. The technology comprises the transformation of intense light into high energy that coagulates the hair follicles and induces natural biological processes that eliminate various skin disorders.
Geometrical Energy Management (GEM-PL) Technology:
GEM-PL is an innovative and patented technology that enables the delivery of energy to a predetermined target and FDA approved. The GEM-PL Technology concentrates a bulk of the light energy in a geometrical plane positioned under the skin. This precise method enables the selective targeting of hair follicles, pigment spots and acne pimples.
Our Treatment Variety
No area is too big or too small to treat with our fantastic machine!
Active's unique Gem-PL Hair Removal procedure is adjusted to the individual skin and hair type. The high intensity flash light penetrates the epidermis, absorbed and assimilated in the hair bulbous region and acts as an inhibitor to the hair follicle through temperature rise and coagulation.
Ideally 12-15 treatments are required at 4 week intervals for the best results.
We are able to work on all levels of the Fitz Patrick skin types and blonde, red and grey hair, with noticeable results from the first treatment.
The hair grows in 3 stages, Anagen, Catagen, and Telegen The hair we target is at the Anagen stage where it is attached to the hair bulb. The melanin of the hair draws the heat energy down the hair shaft and heats up the bulb to around 84°c killing off the blood supply that feeds the root of the hair. The targeted hair then completes its cycle but will not regrow in the next cycle. Treated area becomes patchy and the hair growth is slower.
Clients do and don’t:
•The area may be shaved 2-3 days prior to the treatment.
•All forms of waxing or plucking should be avoided during the hair removal process as it interferes with the hair cycle.
•We advise our clients to avoid all forms of sun exposure including sun beds and self-tanning lotions. The use of an appropriate SPF is recommended.
If there are any other queries about the hair removal process do not hesitate to contact us or book a consultation with one of our highly experienced Therapists, where a patch test can be done and your questions answered.
Active’s devices offer incomparable efficiency in Facial Skin Rejuvenation treatments. The immediate effect, of the light energy emitted into the dermis, is to unwind the existing collagen bundles and induce the growth of new collagen fibres, resulting in the improvement of skin structure. Micro-organisms start functioning again which aid in proper circulation and enough distribution of oxygen and food to the cells. Resulting in a healthier, plumper skin with fewer wrinkles.
Ideally 6 treatments are required at 2 week intervals for the best results.
The treatment is safe and results in a healthier plumped skin. There is no down time; you can reapply make-up directly after a treatment. As collagen is the building blocks of the skin the results are fully effective after a month
Active developed a novel treatment procedure for the removal of Age and Pigmentation spots. By emitting a series of predetermined high energy light flashes over the spots, the dark pigment clusters break apart and the fading out process starts.
Ideally 12 treatments are required at 1 week intervals for the best results.
It is gradual process depending from person to person. After the treatment you will notice the pigmentation is darker, may crust slightly and then it will flake off. This is one of the quicker ways to get a result with pigmentation.
It is important to remember that as pigmentation starts to surface it will appear darker before it gets better.
We offer a range of treatments for pigmentation from the use of the Gem-PL system (intense pulse light) to different types of peels and home care. A consultation can be arranged with one of our qualified therapists
Active's researchers have developed a practical and fast method for treating the annoying Acne pimples. "Acne Vulgaris" develops following the enhanced presence of the "P. Acne" Bacteria. A pre-determined high energy light starts a Photo Excitation Process that is proved to be fatal for the bacteria. Limited thermal therapy is applied to the skin to stimulate a healing process. This treatment has a calming effect on inflammation and redness.
Ideally 6 treatments are required at 1 week intervals for the best results.
