Laser hair removal treatments using Diode Lasers
A diode laser uses semiconductors to produce a projection of light in the visible to infrared range. This narrow-spectrum light beam targets specific chromophores in the skin and offers the deepest penetration levels. This, in turn, allows for superior melanin absorption. The diode laser is the most suitable technology for laser hair removal, offering safe and effective treatment of all skin and hair types, in all body areas.
The Diode laser is safe and efficient for hair reduction or removal. There may be some adverse pigment effects, but these are transient. The Diode laser is the best overall laser for all six skin types based on long term use and safety and is especially effective in people with skin types 1 to 4. Diode Lasers are safer for those with skin of colour vs IPL which can leave permanent skin pigmentation.
Lumenis’ LightSheer diode technology has become the industry’s Gold Standard for hair removal. Its superior safety and effectiveness have been proven in extensive clinical trials and long-term clinical practice.
The LightSheer uses high-power diode technology combined with user-select pulse duration, effective contact cooling and compression for high performance. The LightSheer has a longer wavelength, which allows for greater depth of penetration covering larger areas and is proven to be a significantly faster hair removal treatment.
Used for permanent hair reduction, diode laser is considered the best treatment for all skin types.
Laser hair removal is generally performed without numbing cream unless targeted at especially sensitive areas or specifically requested. The treatment is not very painful, the sensation felt during the procedure is similar to a warm prickling sensation. The area may be sensitive for a couple of hours after.
As with all our treatments, we encourage all those considering laser treatments to book an appointment to discuss your condition in more detail with our qualified practitioners. We will provide you with all the facts, answer your questions and once we’ve understood your requirement, we can design a laser treatment plan that is right for your skin type.
