The Silk’n SensEpil Permanent Last Hair Removal System has been providing safe, inexpensive at-home hair removal treatments to users all over the world for three years. This system uses FDA cleared technology that has been established over 15 years of clinical use.

The patented Home Pulsed Light Technology uses safe light energy that targets growing hair, to permanently remove it from the user’s body. The device delivers pulses of optical energy that disables hair growth. This optical energy is converted to heat energy that is absorbed by melanin in the hair shaft, which permanently disables the growth of the hair. While the device does heat the hair’s shaft, the surrounding skin is cooled by a cooling mechanism. Additionally, hair removal is further enhanced by an acoustic effect that allows for effective hair removal using less optical energy, which means less heat is necessary.

This light-based hair removal is effective because of the manner in which body hair grows. The hair growth cycle involves three phases: the anagen phase, the catagen phase, and the telogen phase. The catagen and the telogen phases are each resting phases, in which no hair growth occurs. Hairs in the anagen phase, or growth phase, are the hairs affected by the SensEpil Hair Removal System.

Anagen Phase                                       Catagen Phase                          Telogen phase

The directed optical light energy targets hairs in the anagen phase, but will have no effect on the hairs in the catagen and telogen phases. Because of this, the SensEpil requires multiple uses to reach permanent hair removal results. Most users will notice results in as few as 4 treatments, and even better results will be reached after only 6 uses. The three phases of hair growth vary greatly from person to person, and some growth cycles may last as long as 18 to 24 months. After the desired amount of hair removal has been reached, all users have to do is perform minor maintenance treatments.

The light energy of the Silk’n SensEpil is absorbed by the hair shaft, disabling its growth.

The tissue around the treated hair remains unaffected by the Home Pulsed Light.
