|The Kona System features proprietary LHE (Light and Heat Energy), and precisely targets chromophore melanin in the hair shaft, not adjacent tissue. LHE (Light and Heat Energy) technology based on the principle of selective photothermolysis. Specific amounts of light and thermal energy target and heat the melanin in the hair follicles ultimately disabling the hair bulb. The key to achieving permanent hair reduction is to disable the hair bulb without damaging surrounding skin, which is the hallmark of the Kona System.
The pulsed light is proprietarily filtered to a desired spectrum wavelength which targets the chromophore melanin in the hair shaft and maximizes the transfer of the LHE energy only to the hair shaft; the shaft then acts as a heat sink allowing the LHE energy to travel down the shaft to enter, disable and destroy the hair bulge and bulb.
The average client needs 6 to 10 treatments for the desired reduction in hair growth. During your consultation, you will be instructed on the length of time between each treatment that would give you the most optimum results.
The Kona System is FDA approved as safe and effective for all skin types and colors. We have successfully treated all skin types and colors.
