Diode Laser Hair Removal

The objective of the hair removal diode laser is the removal of hair by means of light energy with the aim of avoiding repeated hair removal for life with conventional techniques (cold wax, depilatory creams, tweezers).

This is a much more effective method than IPL or other laser treatments, since its wavelength is much longer; therefore, it penetrates deeper into the skin. It is ideal for people with dark skin or thick hair. The number of sessions that a patient will need to achieve total hair removal will be determined by the specialist in the consultation.

Like other laser hair removal devices, the diode laser works by emitting light that must be absorbed by the hair chromophore (melanin), so that the hairy matrix is loaded with stem cells and is responsible for the generation of the hair shaft (i.e. of the hair) are heated and destroyed by a phenomenon of protein denaturation.
