Hair Removal with Ultrasound - Impresa Shows Promise

Today's leading hair removal treatments include laser procedures that help slow down hair growth in several areas of the body, but the latest technology may be as simple as an ultrasound treatment. Boasting an average hair reduction of 38% after just one treatment, Applisonix, the makers of the Impresa system, claim that ultrasound hair removal is a safe and effective solution for those who want to eliminate unsightly hair for the long-term.

The technology is backed by several trials and studies conducted by Applisonix, and is proving to be even mroe effective than light-based treatments for hair removal.

Impresa works by delivering powerful ultrasound energy waves to the treatment area and deactivating the hair follicle. The treatment may even be less painful than conventional hair removal treatments, and can be used on all hair colors and skin types.  Other benefits of Impresa for hair removal include:

  • Surrounding skin unaffected by treatment
  • Reduced risk of damage to the hair follicle and skin
  • No side effects
  • Energy waves reach the root of the hair immediately for a targeted and accurate treatment
