How it works
The Depilar System uses the latest in advanced scientific research to offer an effective and affordable method for the reduction of unwanted body hair for all sexes, races, hair colors, and hair types.
Using the research and our experience from previous generations of enzyme-based hair removal, Danish scientists have combined the proteins Trypsin and Chymotrypsin in the Depilar System. This enhanced enzyme-based formula provides efficacy rates exceeding other products of its kind on the market, including previous generations of enzyme-based hair removal and costly laser treatments.
This advanced technology is simple to use, and yields results that are anything but ordinary. An in-spa or in-salon application is performed by professional skincare and beauty therapists, the Depilar System is used directly after a traditional waxing, sugaring, threading or tweezing to target the hair follicles.
Hair growth facts
Hair growth is classified in three stages: the anagen, catagen and telogen phases.
During the anagen phase the papilla cells connect with the base of the hair follicle and cause hair growth. On average at any one time approximately 20% of the body’s hair follicles are in the anagen phase. During this phase when the growing hair is removed by waxing or tweezing the papilla cells are exposed. Through the empty hair follicle the Depilar System can reach these cells and inhibit hair growth. The catagen phase is when the papilla cells retract from the follicle and the hair ceases to grow further. The telogen phase is when the body expels the dead hair. During the catagen and telogen phases, the Depilar System is ineffective on those specific hair follicles as the papilla cells are unexposed and unreachable.
Often clients who are unaccustomed to waxing may have a temporary increase in hair growth following the first two or three sessions as the body is reacting to the waxing by resetting the anagen phase of dormant papilla cells. The waxing has synchronized more hair follicles to enter the anagen phase at the same time resulting in the appearance of more hair growth. However this is only temporary and in fact allows for increased Depilar System efficacy during the subsequent applications and more visible results as more follicles in the anagen phase means more hair is targeted and affected during subsequent applications.
What to expect
Successive and regular Depilar Applications are required over 16 to 24 months to entirely target ALL hair through a complete 1-2 year hair growth cycle. After each successive application, re-growth time for remaining hair will be longer and the hairs finer and easier to remove. A noticeable decrease in hair growth will be visible after the fourth session. Note that clients may have a temporary increase in hair growth following the first sessions as the body is reacting to the application. This will allow for increased efficacy during subsequent sessions and even more visible results.
Depending on target area, hair growth cycles, and hereditary hair traits, the timeline for individual results may vary. Not all hair cells are active at the same time and the Depilar System only works on hair that is visible at the time of each session. Dormant hair follicles can be targeted when they become visible and are active again in the anagen phase.
In order to see satisfactory results, 4-week intervals between sessions are recommended for applications on the face, and 5-6-week intervals for applications on the body. Note that certain factors can cause new future hair growth – hormonal changes, during pregnancy or menopause, as well as use of certain pharmaceuticals such as HRT and genetic predispositions for future hair growth due to the aging process – and may require additional sessions.
Is it for me?
The Depilar System, which is applied by trained professionals, works on men and women of all ages, skin type or color, or hair color or thickness, assuming they have no counter-indication to waxing, sugaring, etc. The Depilar System uses natural enzymes and has been tested for adverse effects on human beings and no adverse effects were found.
For maximum results the Depilar System is used in conjunction with waxing, sugaring, threading or tweezing where the hair is removed by the root. When waxing, the hair must be at least ¼ inch (6mm) in length to ensure the hair is removed by the root, and the follicles are left empty enabling the Depilar System enzyme-based gels to enter the empty follicles. The Depilar System has not been tested on animals.
In very rare cases a small local urticarial rash can result that will disappear within 48 hours. For clients sensitive to
salicylic acid you should spot test before a full Depilar Application.
