Q1: What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the use of laser energy to produce permanent
hair reduction. The 808nm diode laser emits energy that is absorbed
by the melanin pigment, resulting in rapid heating of the hair
follicle. The heat destroys the papillae (hair follicles) that are
responsible for the hair growth. Over multiple treatments, you can
achieve permanent results.
Q2: What is Melanin?
Melanin determines the pigment of your hair. Depending on the
mixture of the two types of melanin --‐ eumelanin and pheomelanin
--‐ your hair will be dark or light colored. The process of laser
hair removal works by directing the laser onto the skin, where the
laser's high--‐energy light becomes absorbed by the melanin located
within the hair follicles. Once absorbed, the light transforms into
heat, eliminating the entire part of the follicle responsible for
the growth of new hair.
Q3: What does "Diode" mean?
The 808nm Diode laser is the gold standard in laser hair removal.
It contains small diodes, or semiconductors, that are arranged
together to produce light. The diode laser has a longer wavelength
then other laser used for hair removal, which may improve treatment
results on darker skin types
Q4: What are the advantages of the Laser Hair Reduction device?
1)It is CE Certified, meaning it meets the health and safety
requirements set out in International Directives.
2)It is easy to use, simply turn it on, adjust the skin type (I-VI)
and begin removing unwanted hair.
3)It can be used in the comfort and privacy of salon/spa/clinic;
permanently reduce hair on your schedule.
4)The technology used has been proven to be over 90% effective for
permanent hair removal by leading research institutes and
5)It is the most economical solution when it comes to permanent
hair reduction. You will save thousands on salon treatments and
Q5: Is there anything I need to do/not do prior to treatment?
As the laser targets the root of the hair, do not use any hair
removal methods that remove the root (such as waxing) within 2
weeks prior to treatment. Shave or clip the hair in the area you
wish to treat. We also highly recommend applying the Cooling Gel
approximately 2-3 minutes prior to laser hair removal treatment.
Q6: Can I use the laser on sensitive/private areas?
Any area, except the area adjacent to the eye, with excess hair can
be treated with Diode Laser. The most common areas are the face,
upper lip, neck, chest, underarms, back, abdomen, bikini line, and
legs. To avoid potential injury, exercise caution when using laser
hair removal on facial area.
Q7: Do I need to wear protective goggles/eyewear?
It is highly recommended to wear protective eyewear when operating
any laser device. Professional glasses and goggles are usually
sufficient eye wear protection, however even while wearing glasses
you should avoid direct exposure to the laser as 100% protection is
