The Thermicon ™ Effect
In our search for a totally safe and painless method for removing unwanted hair we decided to turn the whole concept around and develop something new and completely different - ThermiconTM technology. The development of a proprietary patented thermodynamic wire to transmit gentle heat to the hair, while including safety mechanisms has enabled Radiancy to adapt this professional technology to a home use product.
Thermicon works on the principle of heat transference conducting a gentle pulse of heat down the hair follicle. The hair is then separated close to the skin while the signal continues to travel down into the follicle where hair growth takes place. The more often this happens, the more effective the treatment is.
Although they happen almost simultaneously, the Thermicon effect on the follicle can be broken down into 3 distinct processes.
1. First Contact:
First Contact is when the thermal wire from the Hot Blade touches the hair, singeing it and removing it up to the skin. This is when the thermal signal is its strongest
The thermal signal crystallizes, or turns to ash, the uppermost part of the hair in the hair follicle. Crystallization may temporarily leave coarse residual hair that can feel prickly to the touch.
The thermal signal continues down the follicle and into the root where it is thought to disrupt cell communication considered responsible for hair growth. The greater the disruption, the longer the hair takes to grow back.
