1. SELECTING THE AREA TO BE TREATED
The first step is to determine the body area to be treated and prepare it properly. This may include cleaning and shaving the area so that the laser light is focused directly on the hair follicles.
2. APPLICATION OF THE LASER
The laser hair removal professional will apply a diode laser device to the target area. This laser emits light at a specific wavelength that is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment that gives color to the hair.
3. ABSORPTION OF ENERGY
Melanin in the hair follicle absorbs the energy from the laser, heating and damaging the follicle. The laser light converts into heat, affecting the follicle’s ability to produce hair again.
To protect the surrounding skin and minimize discomfort, our diode laser hair removal device incorporates a contact cooling system, which is applied during the laser pulse.
4. TREATMENT REPEATED
Since hair follicles go through different growth phases, multiple treatment sessions are required to achieve optimal results. This is because the laser is only effective on hair follicles in the active growth phase (anagen). Treatment sessions are scheduled with several weeks apart to address follicles in different growth stages.
As more sessions are performed, you will notice a gradual reduction in hair growth. For many people, diode laser hair removal can provide permanent results or a significant reduction in unwanted hair in the treated area.
It is important to note that diode laser hair removal works best on people with light skin and dark hair, as melanin in the hair is essential for the treatment to be effective. Individuals with darker skin may require adjustments to the laser settings to avoid damaging the surrounding skin.
Before undergoing diode laser hair removal, it is important to follow the recommendations of the diode laser specialist and honestly answer questions about your health status, ongoing medical treatments, or medications you are taking at the time to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
Es importante destacar que la depilación láser de diodo funciona mejor en personas con piel clara y cabello oscuro, ya que la melanina en el cabello es esencial para que el tratamiento sea efectivo. Las personas con piel más oscura pueden requerir un ajuste en la configuración del láser para evitar dañar la piel circundante.
Antes de someterse a la depilación láser de diodo, es importante atender a las recomendaciones del profesional especialista en láser diodo, así como responder sinceramente a las preguntas acerca del estado de salud, tratamientos médicos en curso o medicamentos que estamos tomando en el momento, para asegurar la seguridad o efectividad del tratamiento.
