Electrical Stimulation Devices For Hair Removal

Electrical Stimulation Devices For Hair RemovalSomething that a lot of people might not be aware of is that there are ways to remove hair that are unlike the conventional methods like waxing, shaving, trimming, or even the practice of epilation. We are talking about the practice of using a type of electrical current emitting device to remove hair.

The use of Functional Electrical Stimulation has been something that neurologist have been doing for decades now for medical applications. Some biomedical devices like Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation Devices have been used to stimulate nerve tissue for blocking electrical signals which tell the brain upwards of the spinal cord that there is no pain below in the body.

There are a lot of difference kinds of other ways to remove hair. There is the use of Lasers in Laser Hair Removal Surgery. There is the use of Ultrasound Surgery for hair removal as well.

The last option is in using electrical stimulation to remove hair. There are already many devices which are sold which claim to use electrical current at low intensities and frequencies to regrow hair but at high intensities, those same electrical currents can be used to remove hair.

How does the technology work?

Most people realize that hair consists of actually a type of fibrous protein that the human body makes. The main component in hair is keratin. Keratin is a type of compound that makes up the nails, hair, and outer skin. To break down the protein all you have to do is break the external membrane or denature the structure of the protein. Laser Hair Removal works because the concentrated light is so intense that the structure of the proteins are completely unfolded.

In the same way, if a device can emit electrical currents that are strong enough, they can break down the fibrous keratin in the hair until they never grow back again. In some ways, this may be the safest way for smooth hairless skin.
