Dr. Shim Ching offers virtually painless hair removal through the use of the latest technology, the revolutionary Soprano® hair removal system.
How It Works
Years of research and scientific studies discovered wavelengths that, when concentrated on hair, destroyed the hair follicle. Lasers were then developed to not only perform hair removal, but also do it through a safe, comfortable, nonsurgical procedure.
The wavelengths used by the laser in laser hair removal treatments are absorbed by the melanin, or pigment, in the hair itself. The precise targeting on those certain wavelengths eliminates the hair and leaves your skin unaffected. Although heat is generated by the laser, cooling attachments counter it during the session. They also negate any heat that is produced within the hair shafts as they are treated.
Women and men visit Dr. Shim Ching in Honolulu, Hawaii, for laser hair removal to get rid of excessive hair growth on the face and body. Previously the standard method for hair removal was electrolysis, which could only treat one hair at a time. One of the greatest breakthroughs of laser hair removal is that it can treat multiple hairs simultaneously.
This alone was a huge step forward as it greatly sped up the hair removal process. What used to take hundreds of hours can now be done in a fraction of the time and with greater effectiveness.
You may wonder, though, what precisely is the process that the laser uses on hair? A laser is merely a beam of light, its strength rooted in the narrow band of wavelengths it generates.
