Title
(EN) METHOD OF EPILATION BY TRANSCUTANEOUS LASER LIGHT
(FR) PROCEDE D'EPILATION PAR RAYONNEMENT LASER TRANSCUTANE
Abstract
(EN)
A method of hair removal, used primarily for cosmetic purposes, comprising the transcutaneous use of laser light having a wavelength which targets the keratin component of hair, thus destroying the hair by photothermolysis without damage to surrounding skin or tissue; this primary method may be supplemented by the use of intrafollicular hair removal methods utilizing a second wavelength of light produced by the same source used to generate the primary light wavelength.
(FR)
Cette invention se rapporte à un procédé d'épilation, principalement à des fins cosmétiques, consistant en l'utilisation transcutanée d'un rayonnement laser ayant une longueur d'onde qui cible le constituant kératinique du poil, le détruisant ainsi par photothermolyse sans endommager la peau ou les tissus circonvoisins. Ce procédé principal peut être complété par l'utilisation de procédés d'épilation intrafolliculaires utilisant une second longueur d'onde d'énergie lumineuse produite par la même source qui a servi à générer la longueur d'onde lumineuse principale.
