WHAT IS STRIP AFT POWERPAC?
Exclusive to STRIP, Powerpac uses a patented Advanced Fluorescence TechnologyTM (AFT), the next generation in semi-permanent hair reduction method that uses beams of specially filtered light to weaken hair follicles, delaying hair growth or stopping a percentage of regrowth entirely.
WHY STRIP AFT POWERPAC?
STRIP AFT Powerpac uses a 5cm crystal applicator head instead of the traditional 3cm one. This ensures more effective hair reduction over a wider area.
STRIP AFT Powerpac is extremely comfortable! Our system involves a gradual heating system that emits energy via multiple passes to accumulate the desired energy level to gently target hair follicles, while lowering the risk of burns. Think of it as a warm and soothing hot stone massage!
On the other hand, standard machines used by most salons use a direct heating system that emits sharp bursts of energy, making the treatment painful and likely to cause burns or a stinging and biting sensation.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW FREQUENTLY SHOULD I GO FOR STRIP POWERPAC?
We recommend a course of 6 sessions with a 4 to 6-week interval between each session.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL IT TAKE BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
You may notice hair reduction as soon as the first treatment is done, but results will be more noticeable after 4 to 6 sessions. Depending on the individual and body area, some may require additional maintenance treatment.
CAN MY HAIR BE PERMANENTLY REMOVED?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to achieve permanent hair removal as our bodies continually repair damaged hair follicles. We can, however, promise semi-permanent hair reduction.
WHICH BODY AREAS CAN STRIP POWERPAC TREAT?
Almost any area of the body: legs, bikini line, back, underarms, arm and upper lips — just to name a few.
IS STRIP POWERPAC SAFE?
Yes it is safe, but some may experience mild redness and swelling of the treatment area for a day or so, while other complications are rare. Our machine applies light energy to the skin very gently as the handheld device converts unused energy into a usable spectrum. At the same time, its unique cooling system extracts heat from the skin for maximum protection.
