Diode hair removal laser treatment
Diode hair removal laser treatment is a procedure for pain-free and permanent hair reduction. Before taking the diode hair removal laser treatment, something you should study clearly. Here are the points for diode laser hair removal treatment.
1. Diode laser hair removal is a painless process
Diode laser wavelength is 808/810nm, which is the golden standard for hair removal. The 808nm diode laser will directly work on the melanin in the hair follicle. Meanwhile, because the absorption of the light, the water and melanin in the epidermis will not absorb the 808nm laser. So you will not feel pain during the diode hair removal laser treatment.
2. Laser hair removal is not a one time treatment.
The hair growth cycle are: anagen, catagen and telogen. Only the hair during anagen could be clearly removed. The hair during catagen and telogen period will not be removed. So generally speaking, it needs 4 to 6 treatments for permanent and clearly hair removal by diode laser. The interval between every treatment is 28 days.
3. Hair needs to be shaved before hair removal treatment.
The hair on the skin’s surface will react to the laser. which will cause some pain or burnt hair smell. Make up should be take off before the hair removal treatment, the color in the make up maybe burning your skin.
4. The hair removal treatment is actually quite fast.
Normally hair removal treatment by diode laser is between 5 to 30 minutes(Lip, arm, leg, back and Bikini…). Diode laser machine use in-motion SHR hair removal technology. The treatment frequency is up to 10Hz, we call diode laser sweeping hair removal.
5. Gym, saunas and shower is forbidden in 2 or 3 days.
After laser hair removal treatment, the heat are keeping in our skins in 24 hours. So we advise not go to the gym, take saunas and hot showers.
6. Sun expose should be avoid.
Before and after the laser hair removal treatment, you should avoid sunbathing and sun exposure. If you have a tan already you’ll need to wait till it fades before laser hair removal treatment.
7. There is no downtime for laser hair removal treatment
Also you need to avoid sun expose, saunas and too much sport, your normal life will be not disturbed. Laser hair removal is non-invasive and non-surgical. There is no downtime.
8. Laser hair removal is more effective and permanent.
Waxing is one method for hair removal, but it is not permanent. Electronics is permanent but the process is too slow. IPL hair removal is permanent but laser hair removal is more effective, faster and painless.
9. Deep color and thick hair is easier to be removed.
The hair density, hair color, hair thickness depends the difficulty of laser hair removal treatment. Normally deep color and thick hair are easier removed.
10. White hair could not be removed by diode laser.
There is no melanin in the white hair follicle, so the laser could not be absorbed.
11. Laser hair removal applies to all the skin type
There is no skin type limit for laser hair removal. Laser hair removal has been proved safe and effective for dark or black skin.
12. Most medications could be take normally.
The only forbidden medications are Accutane and Retin-A, which must be stopped before hair removal treatment.
