A diode laser uses semiconductor technology that produces coherent projection of light in the visible to infrared range. It uses a light beam with a narrow spectrum to target specific chromophores in the skin. Compared to other laser systems such as the Ruby and Alexandrite, the 800nm diode laser wavelength offers the deepest penetration levels and superior melanin absorption. These unique characteristics make the diode laser the most suitable technology for laser hair removal, enabling safe and effective treatment of all skin and hair types, in all body areas.
Diode lasers use the principle of selective photothermolysis (abbreviated SPTL) to target specific chromophores in the skin, usually melanin or blood. The lasers damage the chromophores by selectively heating them while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. When treating unwanted hair, for example, the melanin in the hair follicles is targeted and damaged which results in the disruption of hair growth and regeneration. A diode laser can be complemented by cooling technology, or other pain reducing methods which improve treatment efficacy and patient comfort.
Krlaser’ LightSheer diode technology by Krlaser has been validated in numerous clinical studies and peer reviewed articles. Our customers benefit from the LightSheer DESIRE features and enjoy high patient satisfaction. The LightSheer uses high-power diode technology that can deliver high fluence. This is combined with user-select pulse duration, effective contact cooling and compression for high-performance. The LightSheer also offers a 22 x 35 mm spot size which allows for greater depth of penetration and significantly faster treatment.
Is Diode Laser Hair Removal Effective? Diode laser hair removal is an effective treatment. Many patients will find that their hair is removed long-term. The diode laser hair removal involves minimal discomfort.
The treatment methods outlined above mean that, typically, IPL technology will require more regular and long-term treatments for hair reduction, while diode lasers may work more effectively with less discomfort (with integrated cooling) and will treat more skin and hair types than the.
After your laser session, the growth of new hair will be less noticeable. However, even though laser treatments damage hair follicles, they’re not destroyed completely. Over time, the treated follicles may recover from the initial damage and grow hair again.
Conclusion: Treatment with a diode laser (810 and 940 nm) is safe and may be effective for facial skin tightening. Maintenance treatment is necessary to sustain the effect of treatment.
Clinical research has proven that diode laser hair removal is more effective and lasts longer than its LPL counterpart. Don’t be fooled by claims that IPL laser hair removal is faster or better than diode laser technology.
The number of sessions depends on the area of the body being treated. Notably, the face requires around 8 to 10 sessions to achieve desired results compared to 5 to 6 sessions for the legs. After which, 1 to 2 touch-up treatments every year maybe needed.
At the beginning of the treatment course, treatments should be repeated every 28/30 days. Towards the end, and depending on individual results, sessions can be carried out every 60 days.
