Powered by the revolutionary elōs Technology, Syneron Hair Removal systems are setting new standards of speed, safety, and efficacy, in the removal of even minimally-pigmented hair colors, and all skin tones, including tanned skin. Results using conventional optical only systems are limited because they operate indirectly by superheating the melanin in the hair shaft and hope for enough collateral thermal damage. Syneron Systems achieve superior results because they precisely target and destroy the hair follicle through a process known as Vortex heating. Cooling of the skin surface as well as constant measurement of the skin's resistance ensures safety and comfort during treatment. This is a no-downtime procedure. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
