The mē smooth is the first and only at-home hair removal device that is FDA cleared to be safe and effective for ALL skin tones (the skin color you were born with). Elōs technology, the unique combination of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and RF (Radio Frequency) addresses the limitations of traditional hair removal technologies. The addition of “color-blind” RF technology allows the use of a lower level of IPL energy while delivering a clinically proven removal of unwanted hair, even on darker skin tones.
The mē is clinically proven to effectively remove unwanted hair that’s naturally blond, dark blond, red, brown, brunette or black. The IPL energy is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicle and delivers energy to prevent re-growth, while the “color-blind” RF technology acts as a secondary heat source that delivers energy independent of the pigment (hair color) in the follicle. In this way, elōs technology can be effective on fair haired individuals, whereas older light based technologies are not suitable. Epilating light hair immediately prior to the treatment can further enhance efficacy.
