Diode Laser Hair Removal
While there are many methods to eliminate unwanted hair, very few can eliminate hair regrowth while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. And laser remove is quickly becoming the most popular. 808nm diode laser technology, unlike earlier systems, energy penetrates deep into the dermis (where the hair follicle is located) with high average power and a rapid 10 pulse-per-second repetition rate. Lasers use the principle of selective photothermolysis to eliminate hair and its potential regrowth without damaging the surrounding skin. During a laser hair removal treatment, light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This absorption raises the temperature of the hair follicle and thermally destroys the cells responsible for regrowth. The attributes of the laser (wavelength, pulse duration and power) are chosen to ensure damage to these cells and not to the rest of the skin.
The E-Light/IPL technology fully combines the advantages of optical energy and radio frequency. With the impedance difference in skin and pre-heat produced when the skin selectively absorbs optical energy, the targeted tissue absorbs radio frequency with lower optical energy. So with a very low risk of side effects-pigment lesion, blistering-generally caused by higher optical energy, we are able to achieve good result with comfortable treatment. The traditional IPL device can only reach 2mm into the skin, however, the E-light creates a deep penetration into the dermis about 15mm, which can achieve more applications, especially on wrinkle treatments and skin tightening.
SHR works by gradually heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth, while avoiding injury to the surrounding tissue. A high repetition rate of short pulses are delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up, with virtually no pain.
