Q #3. How does the system remove hair?

This laser targets the pigment located in the hair follicle and shaft. 

 The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and this energy is converted to heat which results in damage to the hair follicle. 

 This damage causes delayed re-growth of hair and, in most cases, permanent destruction of many of the hair follicles. 

 Unlike electrolysis, which disables one hair follicle at a time, the laser reaches and treats hundreds of follicles at a time. 
Q #4. Is Laser Hair Removal technology safe?

The system was developed from years of research at one of the world’s leading medical laser research institutions. 

 The laser is pulsed, or “turned on”, for only a fraction of a second and the duration of each pulse is just long enough to disable the hair follicles. 

 A unique component of the system, the actively cooled sapphire hand piece was designed to protect the skin by actively cooling it before, during and after the laser light is transmitted. 

 It also actively draws off heat from the skin surface, which further protects the skin from injury.
