Silk’n: What Is It?
Silk’n is a light-based hair removal system available at Dr. Stuart Kincaid's San Diego plastic surgery offices. This device uses light energy and a special acoustic effect to remove unwanted body hair in the privacy of one's home. Light-based hair removal has been offered at medical spas and plastic surgeons' offices for more than a decade. The Silk’n system makes this treatment available to busy individuals who desire to permanently remove the redundant hair in a convenient, private manner.
How Does Silk’n Work?
The main part of the Silk’n hair removal system is a hand-held applicator that is gently moved over the skin. The easy-to-use applicator delivers light energy to the hair, causing it to gradually weaken and fall out. Because of a unique built-in skin cooling system, no anesthetizing gels are necessary when using the at-home Silk’n hair removal system.
The revolutionary Silk’n hair removal device works by using the principles of the selective photothermolysis theory. Thus, the device delivers light energy that is absorbed exclusively by the melanin pigment in the hair. Because of the selectivity, the surrounding skin tissue is not damaged during the Silk’n hair removal procedure. After the hair has absorbed the light energy, light is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair and makes it fall out.
Because Silk’n destroys hair at a particular growing stage, it removes only a portion of hair at a time. Therefore, several Silk’n treatments are needed to completely remove unwanted hair from various body areas. However, once all the hair has gradually fallen out, patients enjoy long-lasting results with no need for regular touch-up treatments.
Who Can Use Silk’n?
Silk’n hair removal system is safe for the vast majority of people. Because it does not destroy skin tissue, no special precautions are needed after the treatments. However, like all light-based treatments, Silk’n therapy might not be appropriate for individuals with dark complexion, as well as those with a deep, dark tan. Dr. Kincaid carefully evaluates each person's skin prior to recommending Silk’n hair removal device, thus promoting safe application and excellent results.
