Ultrasonic hair removal is a fairly recent method to eliminate unwanted hair in 2010. Up until now, blonds, redheads and people with grey or lighter hair couldn't avail of laser hair removal simply because lasers cannot detect the pigment in lighter hair. Seen as a breakthrough technology, Ultrasonic use pure ultrasound to remove all hair colours permanently and works for dark skin stone. It is also ideal for removing hair on sensitive or pigmented areas such as eye brows, ears, nose, nipple, upper lip.

How Ultrasonic Works

An ultrasonic head is used to focus the acoustic energy directly into the hair shaft, channeling ultrasound energy precisely to the hair root, where the energy is converted into heat. As a result, the hair root's temperature rapidly exceeds the level that is required to cause long-term damage to the hair's re-growth mechanisms. Since the energy is accurately applied through the hair shaft, the surrounding skin is not affected. Unlike laser hair reduction, the ultrasonic is not target at the melanin in the hair shaft, hair bulb or epidermis, so, it is applicable to all hair colors and skin tones.
