Skarp Laser Razor

in the newsA new laser razor has been billed as the ‘next big thing’ for hair removal. 

Skarp razor was created by a team of scientists and designers.

The team have been seeking investment via kickstarter.com and after generating over 20,000 backers and $4m against a $160k goal, the funding has been suspended. The backers will be among the first to receive their own Skarp razor for their investment of as little as $89.

Skarp technologies scientists found a particular particle that is present in all hair types and have isolated a wavelength of light which breaks the hair on contact.

The laser is fitted onto a razor using an optical wire and when passed over areas of hair growth, will melt the hair down to the surface of the skin, rather than cutting at an angle like a traditional razor. This causes no irritation and leaves the skin smoother for longer.

The technology was developed by a team lead by Morgan Gustavsson who invented and patented Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) in 1989; working with optical engineer Paul Binun.

Could Skarp Replace Laser Hair Removal?

Skarp razors are an exciting development for day to day maintenance, but they are no replacement for laser hair removal.

The key difference is that laser hair removal acts beneath the skin’s surface to destroy the hair follicle, preventing regrowth. Laser hair removal is a method of permanent hair reduction.
