Using Forma-tk’s unique IPL technology (featuring both USP and UPC technologies) an effective and safe hair removal procedure is achieved as Broad-Light spectrum is applied to the surface of the skin, targeting melanin.
This light travel through the skin until it strikes the hair shafts or the bulb (root) where the highest concentration of melanin is located. As the light is absorbed, the bulb and most of the hair shaft are heated, destroying the hair-producing papilla. Additionally, heat conversion occurs directly in the darker capillaries that bring blood to the follicle.
At any one time, not all hair follicles are ‘active’, meaning in Anagen phase and only active hair follicles can be affected by the treatment. ‘Inactive’ hair follicles (e.g. Telogen and catagen) can be treated as they become ‘active’ over time. A series of treatments is required to remove most visible hair.
