This amazing hair removal treatment works by safely destroying the hair deep within its follicle to prevent regrowth. It is especially created to eliminate unwanted vellus hairs, often known as peach fuzz.
Vellus hairs are different to other hairs in the they have a narrow Cortex and little-to-no melanin. (Melanin is the pigment that gives skin or hair its colour). Unlike other hairs, they are not linked to hormonal factors and due to their unique characteristics, peach fuzz cannot be effectively combatted by hair removal treatments such as electrolysis, waxing, laser and IPL.
Instead, Hair V Go is a high pH treatment that targets the keratin in the hair. (Keratin is the hair’s main component and protein structure). During your session, a special paste is first applied to the problem area. This special formula breaks down the keratin and dissolves the hair deep within its follicle. The stem cells in the hair are gradually disables, thus preventing any repeat growth.
During your Hair V Go treatment, the paste is removed, and then the area is cleansed with pH Reset Cleanser, which restores the skin’s acid balance. As an extra layer of defence, a cream containing botanical hair growth inhibitors is then applied to the treated area.
