  • TITLE: The Effect of Novel Low Energy Pulsed Light Combined with Galvanic Energy for Home-Use Hair Removal of Dark Skin

    AUTHORS: Michael H. Gold, Hela Goren

    KEYWORDS: Hair Removal, Dark Skin, Home-Use, IPL, Galvanic Energy

    ABSTRACT: Background and Objectives: Permanent reduction of unwanted hair on skin types V and VI is the most challenging procedure among all hair removal technologies based on selective absorption of light or laser. The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a low energy pulsed-light device combined with galvanic energy, intended for home-use hair removal on dark skin. Materials and Methods: Fifteen women with skin types V and VI and dark terminal hair in axillaarea self-administrated 6 treatments at 2 week intervals, using a hand-held IPL combined with galvanicenergy device, using HPL (Home Pulsed Light) technology. Hair count and photographs were performed pre-treatment and 1 and 3 months after the last sixth treatment. Adverse events and subject satisfaction scores were recorded. Results: All patients showed a positive clinical response to treatment, with reduction of unwanted hair. Hair counts were significantly reduced by 57.3% 1 month following last treatment and by 44.5% 3 months following last treatment. No adverse events were recorded. Subject satisfaction scores of the device usability and the treatment outcome were high. Conclusions: Low energy pulsed light combined with galvanic energy may be applied safely and effectively for at-home hair removal for people with dark skin types V and VI.
