The Diode Laser applicator has been designed in response to the high demand for the removal of unwanted hair in all body areas. Diode Laser hair removal is one of the most comfortable procedures for hair removal. A slight discomfort may be sensed as the laser handpiece passes over the treatment areas but no topical anaesthetics are necessary for this procedure.
The Diode applicator is considered the "gold-standard" of hair-removal lasers as it can be used to treat all skin types effectively and with the fewest number of treatments. The laser emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the melanin located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is long enough to damage the follicle, without damaging the surrounding tissue.
It offers the ability to treat large areas fast with high efficacy and comfort. Few short sessions, usually 5-6, are required in order to completely remove hair, with just a few touch ups that may be required over time.
