What is diode laser hair removal?
Diode laser hair removal machine is a laser that produces a larger beam of highly concentrated light. The laser beam is well absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. During the procedure, the laser pulses for a fraction of a second, allowing the hair to absorb the energy and heat up. As it heats up, the hair shaft and bulb are damaged which significantly impedes its ability to re-grow. And with the large spot size, the process treats numerous hair follicles simultaneously, making the treatment much faster than traditional IPL and other hair removal alternatives.
SHORT TREATMENT TIME
With diode laser, a larger area can be treated at one time as compared to IPL treatment. Laser treatment are typically four times faster than traditional IPL technology and much less painful IPL, waxing or electrolysis.
Diode laser hair removal is a low risk procedure involving minimal discomfort. It offers integrated skin cooling during treatments which greatly reduces any “pain” felt by the customer.
Compared to IPL and other treatments, laser has better penetration and effective damage to the hair follicles. With just a few treatments customers see results that will last for years.
Unlike IPL, diode laser’s wavelength is much more precise, which makes the epidermis less affected. Skin irritation like redness and swelling rarely happen after laser hair removal treatment.
Critical Factors For Excellent Clinical Results
A) Head Size / Head Design
Intuitively the smaller the treatment head the more shots you need to fire to cover the same area (more shots means more $$$$). Consequently the smaller the head, the more likely it is that you will miss areas and the treatment will therefore be less effective. The converse is also true.
The delivery of light across the entire treatment area (especially over larger areas such as the back) is more uniform and less likely to create uneven results when using the larger treatment head. The added advantage of larger treatment heads is that their depth of penetration can be greater than that of smaller sizes.
B) High Output Power
A large spot size on an underpowered machine can result in the light energy being dissipated over the large spot size resulting in ineffective treatments. If you do want a larger spot size for the reasons discussed make sure the machine you are looking at has the power to handle the larger spot size.
C) Integrated Cooling
For a diode laser hair removal machine, the ability to cool the skin during hair reduction therapy is critical to minimizing the potential for pain, redness, burns and hyper/hypo-pigmentation. That is because the deeper the target tissue the more time it takes the heat to dissipate. As a result, if insufficient time is allowed for the heat to dissipate between shots you can very easily build up temperature with each successive shot. So much so that the laser beam that would normally not cause any adverse effects now becomes the straw that breaks the camels back. Hence the ability to cool the skin rapidly dissipates this latent heat and minimizes the chances of adverse effects due to overheating.
It also effectively dissipates the heat which in turn allows you to use higher fluences (power levels) delivered at a higher repetition rate (speed) while still maintaining comfort for the patient. The net result is more effective treatment requiring fewer visits to achieve the desired result.
D) Ease of Use
Look at the machine that you are purchasing to see if the operating interface is easy to use. There are several different systems across different machines some of which are better than others. In some cases you have to input treatment parameters from tables and this can be cumbersome and make it possible for you, or your staff, to make mistakes resulting in bad clinical outcomes.
