What is EpilFree

September 1st, 2011
EpilFree is a professional system developed in Europe taking two spray liquids used in tandem after waxing (or other method that removes the entire hair follicle from the root) to gradually reduce and stop further growth of hair in the treated areas. Only available through salons and spas, the hair removal and system is performed by trained professionals.

How Does EpilFree Work?

After the hair is removed and the follicle is empty, the first spray is applied and massaged into the skin in the opposite direction of the hair growth for three to five minutes. An inhibitor, the second part of the system is sprayed on and also massaged into the skin, again in the opposite direction of hair growth. The treated area is then wrapped in plastic wrap for 30 minutes.

Is it For Everyone?

The system can be used safely on anyone, whatever your hair or skin color, and hair type. Because it’s not targeting pigment like most laser hair removal, but the actual hair follicle, so hair or skin color is not an issue.

How Effective is It?

EpilFree normally takes between two and ten treatments to achieve desired results. If hormonal issues are involved, it may be more. You should see a noticeable difference after the very first treatment. Each Epilfree treatment will continue to reduce the number of functioning follicles, and as a result, reduce the amount of hair that returns in the treated area. Like any other professional service, the overall results will vary depending on the person giving the treatment.

Is EpilFree Painful?

The only pain you have to worry about is when the actual hair is removed from waxing or other method. The two part system of products, massage and wrapping doesn’t hurt.
