"Long-term Facial and Body Hair Removal With a Combined Radiofrequency and Optical Home-Use Device for All Skin Types"

Current in-office laser and light-based hair removal devices effectively provide a long-term solution for unwanted hair removal.1 These in-office systems generally use high energies to deliver effective long-term hair reduction.

Clinical studies have reported significant hair reduction at low radiant exposures customized for home-use.2 Permanent hair reduction over legs of skin types I-IV, following diode laser treatment with a home-use device, has been reported in the literature.3 Significant hair reduction at 6-months follow-up after treatment of unwanted body and facial hair of skin types I–III4 and after treatment of non-facial sites of skin types I–IV5,6 with intense pulsed light (IPL) home-use systems has also been demonstrated. In a short-term home hair removal study, a home hair removal device, integrating optical (IPL) energy with bipolar radio frequency (RF) energy, has been shown to be effective and safe for the removal of body hair in all skin types (I-VI).7

Long term persistent hair reduction was achieved using an RF/IPL home-use hair reduction device. The combination of RF and optical energies allowed for the effective application of low energy usage. All skin types and both facial and body anatomical regions tolerated the procedures very well.
