appropriate pulse widths are generally longer to
prevent damage to the epidermis. Using the

you should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks
before and after treatment. This includes self
tanners, bronzers, etc. Sun exposure makes laser
hair removal less effective and you are likely to
have complications after treatment more.
are Diode lasers?
diode laser uses semiconductor technology that
produces coherent projection of light in the
visible infrared range. It uses a light beam with a
narrow spectrum to target specific chromophores
(color) in the skin. Compared to other laser systems
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.
