Extra-818 IPL Machine

The Extra-818 is the outcome of more than a decade of treatments and thousands of devices operated worldwide.
The Extra-818 - based on Active's GEM-PL Technology, sets a specific pulse pattern according to the selected treatment type, skin colour, skin photosensitivity and treatment depth.

The treatment protocols and different pulse patterns take into account the tissue's TRT (Thermal Relaxation Time) and the combined knowledge accumulated from thousands of treatments done during the years and clinical investigations done to confirm the findings.

The combination of tested treatment protocols with high end engineering makes the Extra-818 the perfect device for leading clinics.

The Extra-818 contains unique features:

  • Contemporary touch screen control
  • Built-in Patch Test procedure for examining the optimal energy level
  • A stunning number of 450,000 flashes in both lamps
  • The large Universal Handpiece has a push button in addition to the foot switch making it work easier and faster for the therapist.
  • All IPLs come with a 12 month manufacturers warranty
  • The GEM patent technology means safer, gentler, more accurate delivery of broadband light
  • Manufactured to the highest standards with numerous international safety standards and approvals including American FDA, CFS, ISO-134- 8S, and CE MM-MDD international medical standard.
  • You will receive as much training as you need to operate the machine safely and confidently.

The Revolutionary Cooling System

The Extra-818 has a dual cooling system, controlled and monitored in order to ensure long lifetime to the lamp and comfortable treatment to the client.

Competitive cooling systems "freeze" the skin so that during the treatment the skin temperature will rise to a bearable level. However, this "freezing" temperature might limit the results because the follicles will not reach the coagulation temperature. To ensure optimal results Active installed a special Processor that prevents overcooling the skin and maintains a uniform low temperature of the "glass" throughout the treatment. This revolutionary system enables the Extra - 818 to provide best results with optimal patient comfort.
