Study Shows Evidence of Safe & Effecitve Hair Removal

March 25, 2016:  Clinical Dermatologists from the University of South Florida, working with the inventor from the Department of Chemical & Biomedical Engineering, performed a study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of using cold-plasma treatments for permanent hair removal.  Results showed that treatment with cold plasma produced follicular necrosis (death of the hair follicles) with treament times as short as five minutes.  Given the nature of follicular necrosis (vacuolized follicular nuclei ), it appears that treatment results in permanent destruction of hair follicles.  The study also found that cold plasma treatment used in this experiment did not cause any significant tissue damage.  More information about this study can be obtained by contacting Dr. Michael Muthig - 813-777-0469
