Until recently, the great variety in hair types and body locations made long-lasting hair removal a significant challenge. Results using conventional optical only systems are limited because they operate indirectly by superheating the melanin in the hair shaft and hoping for enough collateral thermal damage. Syneron Systems™ doesn't waste time splitting hairs, they achieve superior results because they precisely target and destroy the hair follicle through a process known as Vortex heating.
Using revolutionary elos technology, our systems first preheat the target using optical energy, which creates a thermal path on which the radio frequency (RF) travels. RF is delivered directly to the hair follicle, which can not conduct RF. The build up of current density results in 4x heat coefficient thermal transfer. Under 80X magnification, distinct peri-follicular coagulation or bleaching is evident. The hair follicle is terminally disabled and denatured.
