A diode laser uses semiconductor technology that produces a coherent projection of light in the visible to infrared range. Diode Laser Hair Removal is popular with people wanting a solution to hair removal that is more permanent, complete, fast, pain-free, effective than some other methods. Using lasers to remove hair works by stopping the hair follicles from growing new hairs.
How Does A 808nm Diode Laser Work?
Diode lasers use the principle of selective photothermolysis 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. Permanent hair reduction on all pigmented hair and all skin types – including tanned skin. This flexibility makes it ideal for both physicians and medical spa professionals.
Diode Laser hair removal works by destroying the root of the hair follicle. During treatment, flashes of light are distributed over the skin and absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The energy from the laser heats up and damages the hair follicle, successfully stunting the cells that stimulate regrowth. It is important to note that hair grows in a cycle, and that hair removal is only effective during the active growth stage.
Each hair in your body can be at a different stage in the growth cycle at any given time. Thus, to target the hair during the anagen phase, multiple laser treatments are necessary to target the numerous hair follicles during their growth stage.

What kind of results can patients expect?
Most patients require 5 to 8 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to achieve desired results. With Kr Laser technology, virtually every patient – no matter their skin or hair type – can receive long-lasting removal results for unwanted hair. Patients with lighter hair may require more treatments than others, but will still see effective results by the end of their treatments.
What are the types of light-based hair removal?
The two main technologies used for permanent hair reduction are lasers (diode) and intense pulsed light (IPL) systems. Kr Laser offers both IPL and diode laser hair removal technologies that are trusted by practitioners and patients worldwide. These two hair removal technologies are complete, permanent, pain-free, safe, fast, and effective.
