LASER HAIR REMOVAL

How does the diode system remove hair?

This laser targets the pigment located in the hair follicle and shaft. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle and this energy is converted to heat which results in damage to the hair follicle.

This damage causes delayed re-growth of hair and, in most cases, permanent destruction of many of the hair follicles. Unlike electrolysis, which disables one hair follicle at a time, the laser reaches and treats hundreds of follicles at a time.

Advantages
The diode laser system safely and effectively treats all skin types (Skin Types I-VI) as well as tanned skin
The Diode Laser System’s Sapphire touch cooling provides for enhanced comfort during treatment, minimal risk of infection, speed and accuracy.
The Diode Laser System’s user-friendly operation screen, choosing the best parameters of pulse width and energy in accordance with gender, skin types and treatment area.

Do I need to grow the hair out before my consultation / treatment?

No, in fact we ask that you do shave the area you want treated. Shave the areas 2-3 days prior to the treatment. We are actually targeting the anatomical structures below the skin. Surface hair interferes with this process.
