How Vacuum Assisted Technology Works
 
  • Vacuum gently draws skin into the handpiece, skin is stretched thin and target is pulled closer to the energy source.
  • Energy is applied to target in which melanocytes are spread apart and blood flow is constricted.
  • Target is damaged and skin is released.
     


 
Advantages of High-Speed Vacuum Assisted Technology
  • Efficacy: reduction in competing chromophores enables delivery of laser energy more efficiently.
  • Safety*: less energy is absorbed by the epidermis and lower fluence is required since the target is closer to the energy source.
  • Decreased pain*: The unique vacuum mechanism activates tactile and pressure skin receptors to inhibit the transmission of pain sensation.
How ChillTip™ Works
  • Skin is cooled before and during treatment.
  • Skin is compressed. Laser beam applied to skin and target is damaged

Advantages of ChillTip™ Technology
  • Safety: superior epidermal protection is achieved through ChillTip contact cooling
  • Patient comfort**: by continuously cooling the skin, pain and discomfort are significantly reduced.
  • Efficacy: Compression of the skin rotates follicle closer to the surface, blenches blood vessels and reduces competing chromophores. High fluence enables treatment of areas requiring precision and thin, light hair.
