1. How does Cynosure Smartpil II™ laser hair removal work?

The Cynosure Smartpil II™ laser is a non-invasive light therapy device specifically designed to eliminate undesired hair from all parts of the body. The Cynosure Smartpil II™ laser generates a pulse of intense, concentrated light which is directed through a small, cooled hand piece which is gently applied to the treatment site.

This laser energy passes through the skin to the hair follicle, where the energy is absorbed by pigment in the hair and hair follicle, causing selective damage to the hair root without damaging delicate pores and structures of the skin. The laser is pulsed, or "turned on", for only a fraction of a second. The duration of the pulses is carefully determined so that laser energy will be absorbed by the hair follicle without transferring excessive heat to the surrounding skin.

Some of the hair which was in the treated follicles is wiped off immediately after treatment, and the rest is shed over the next 2-3 weeks. The hair roots which have been destroyed are reabsorbed by the body.

The surface of the skin is protected by cooling gel pads applied immediately before and after treatment, and by a gold plated cooling head which glides over the skin (Cynosure Smartpil II) half a second before the laser beam. This selectivity helps to protect the skin, while effectively treating the unwanted hair.

Unlike "hair-by-hair" treatments like electrolysis, the laser uses a wide beam which treats many hairs at once. Because the Cynosure Smartpil II™ laser can treat dozens of hairs with each pulse, it is possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, legs and face. The Cynosure Smartpil II™ laser can be used just about anywhere on the body, and usually requires no anesthesia or other treatment. Even sensitive areas such as the nipples, upper lip and bikini line can be treated easily and with minimal discomfort.

The system's unique design allows us to customize treatment, according to your hair and skin color, hair texture, and location on the body.

Cynosure Smartpil II™ laser treatment is a safe, fast, gentle and effective method for hair removal. In just a few treatment sessions using the gentle power of lasers, you can greatly improve the appearance of skin which is disfigured by unwanted hair.
