It has been proved that using laser is the most safe and effective way in hair removal.
The light based hair removal is based on photo thermolysis, in which the optical energy I used to destruct the growing hair.
In order to work well, the thermal effect should achieve the hair shaft to selectively absorb light energy and change into heat. This selectivity can be achieved when a high optical energy delivered to the tissue is absorbed by hair shaft pigment, while the epidermis and the surrounding tissue are actively cooled. Melanin is the pigment in the hair shaft, responsible for the absorption of light that generates the heat which results to the disability of hair growth. And when the hair growth is destroyed, thus long term removal is achieved. If you are in doubt with the effect of Silkn, consult your physician before purchasing.
