Silk’n ™ Home Hair Removal Services

Dr. Zdinak is pleased to offer her patients the Silk’n ™ personal hair removal device for hair removal in the privacy of their own homes. Silk’n ™ is a physician directed and recommended, innovative light-based device. Home laser hair removal products use a variation on Intense Pulsed Light, the light source used by physicians, only the light source for home use delivers less energy than the machine used in the physician’s office. Unlike the more permanent clearance of hair obtained by professional laser hair removal, home use devices are designed to cause the hair to assume a state of temporary dormancy, without destroying the hair follicle’s ability to eventually regrow the hair. Safe, easy to use and cost effective, Silk’n ™ utilizes the highly sophisticated and new Home Pulsed Light™ (HPL™) technology.

HPL™ epilation is based on the theory of selective photothermolysis in which optical energy is used to disable hair growth. Epilation with Silk’n ™ is further benefited by a unique acoustic effect that further enhances the normal process of epilation. To safely achieve the desired clinical results the hair shaft needs to selectively absorb HPL™ light energy and transform it into heat. The HPL™ optical energy is mostly absorbed by pigment in the hair shaft, while the surrounding skin remains cool. Additionally, HPL™ technology creates an acoustic effect that enhances the overall hair removal result. Together the optical and acoustic effects of HPL™ Technology are what enable the Silk’n ™ device to be safely used by patients for home based hair removal.

Silk’n ™ is FDA cleared for physician directed home-use by patients and is available only through a physician.
