Laser har removal with the Diode Laser 808


Contrary to the IPL or SHR method, bundled light impulses are used in a treatment with the diode laser. The specific length of the light waves is the reason for the name of the diode laser 808. The wavelength is 808 nm, in contrast to IPL. Due to the light bundling every single hair root can be treated precisely and effectively. This treatment is very gentle and has only an extremely low risk of burning. Frequent impulses and a low energy input ensure a save treatment.

The in all hair roots contained protein drives the hair growth. During a treatment with a diode laser warmth occurs. It destroys those protein cells, which are capable for the nutrition of every hair. The hair roots now lack the needed nutrients for the growth and don’t appear again after the treatment. Many methods for a permanent hair removal with laser are based on this principle.

The diode laser 808 is suitable for a skin-friendly transfer of the light impulses via the melanin to the hair roots, due to its specific length of the light waves. Melanin is the dye which is, depending on how much tanned the skin is, contained in the skin. Here the light cells are converted into warmth. During the treatment with diode laser, the according body areas are run over with a hand piece. Here the light waves are emitted, which are bundled due to the laser. The bundling of the light impulses works different to the IPL-method. This way the light can reach the hair root optimally, until it is transferred by the melanin.

Body & hair

What happens in your body?

Due to the light waves the temperature in each hair root rises. As a result the protein, which is responsible for the hair growth, denatures. Once the hair follicles are not supplied anymore with needed nutrients, they are falling out and cannot regenerate themselves anymore.

The wavelenght of 808 nm has another advantage: The generated heat only reaches the skin areas which are occupied with hair papillae. Therefore, the remaining skin layers are not damaged. Additionally the neighbouring tissue is generally spared and also blood is not impaired, because the haemoglobin – the blood containing dye – does not react to the specific wavelength of the diode laser.

What do you have to notice?

For the effectiveness of the treatment it is essential that the hair is in its growth phase. That means hair has an active connection to its root. Only this way light impulses can be transported to the hair root. To realize a permanent hair removal, various sessions are needed. Only that way every single hair can be reached in its according growth phase and be treated.
