Silk'n Sensepil Technology

Home Pulsed Light (HPL)

The process of light-based hair removal is well known and established. It has been proven in clinical use around the world for over 15 years as a safe and effective way to achieve long-term hair reduction.

The patented Home Pulsed Light technology (HPL) of Silk'n Sensepil Laser Hair Removal Device is a new and innovative light energy technology combined with unique acoustic effect, designed exclusively for carrying out safe and effective removal of unwanted hair at home. The scientists and engineers behind HPL technology all have an extensive and successful history in the light-based aesthetic industry, having previously developed products for major companies such as Syneron, Sharplan, Laser Industries and Lumenis, as well as others in the aesthetics industry.

The hand held Silk'n Applicator

Through HPL, the Home Skinovations' scientists have created a Silk'n device that is small and portable, and operates with a surprisingly low and extremely safe level of light energy. In clinical trials HPL technology effectively removed unwanted hair on the majority of participants. In consumer tests users of HPL technology in Silk'n found it safe and easy to use in the privacy of their own home. Home Pulsed Light is the next generation of innovative light technology for removing unwanted hair.

The HPL Light Pulse

HPL Light-Based Hair Removal

The process of light-based hair removal is well known and established. It has been proven in clinical use around the world for over 15 years as a safe and effective way to achieve long-term hair removal.

Light-based hair removal is based on the theory of selective photothermolysis in which optical energy is used to disable hair growth. In order to achieve such thermal effect, the hair shaft needs to selectively absorb light energy and transform it into heat. This selectivity is achieved when high optical energy that is delivered to the tissue is mostly absorbed by hair shaft pigment, while the epidermis and the surrounding tissue is actively cooled (by a cooling mechanism). Melanin is the pigment in the hair shaft that is responsible for the absorption of the light, which generates the heat that eventually disables hair growth. When hair growth is disabled, long-term hair removal is achieved.

Silk'n is a personal combined-energy based device for long-term hair removal. The Silk'n is based on Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology which is a proprietary and patented technology of Home Skinovations Ltd. Epilation with Home SKinovations' proprietary HPL technology is enhanced by a unique acoustic effect that improves the normal process of photoepilation, enabling long term epilation with low level of optical energy without the need to cool the skin.

Before Silk'n Treatment: Healthy hair follicles with normal hair growth
During Silk'n Pulse for hair removal: Light energy combined with the acoustic effect is selectively absorbed in the hair shaft and disableshair growth
Immediately After Silk'n Pulse: Energy is absorbed by the hair follicles while the surrounding tissue remains at normal temperature and hair removal is achieved

Hair Growth Cycle

Every hair in our body goes through the three phases of the hair growth cycle: Anagen , Catagen and Telogen . These phases have an important impact on how the process of light-based hair removal works.

Anagen is the hair growth phase while Catagen and Telogen, both are resting phases.

The time it takes to complete a full hair growth cycle varies from person to person and the location of the hair on the body, but is typically 18-24 months. At any given moment the majority of the hair follicles in any skin area are in the resting stages. These resting hairs cannot be effected by Silk'n. However hairs in the growing Anagen phase will respond to Silk'n treatments. It is important to understand that it may take a full hair growth cycle to realize complete results when doing combined-energy based hair removal with Silk'n. However, most people start to see noticeable results after four treatments, and great results after six treatments.
