Laser Hair Removal Explained
Lasers deliver an intense beam of light which are made up of a single wavelength or colour. Skin is essentially transparent to light with a wavelength of 808 (nano meters), while melanin containing structures will absorb laser energy of this wavelength. It is possible therefore to target the hair follicle without affecting the surrounding area.
The light energy absorbed by the melanin pigment results in the rapid heating up of the hair follicle. This heat destroys the cells (papilla) responsible for hair growth. If adequate heating is achieved, then the follicle is permanently disabled resulting in a permanent reduction in hair growth. Note: This is different from home IPL (Intense Pulse Light) which requires continued treatments every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth.
Suitable Skin Types for Laser Hair Removal
Melanin in the epidermis also absorbs the energy and limits the depth of penetration of the laser light into the skin. Using a light wavelength of 808nm enables treatment of relatively dark skin as well as fair-skinned types. However, laser hair treatment is not suitable for Afro Caribbean or black skin complexions. Laser treatment is also ineffective in removal of white or grey hair. Electrolysis should be considered as an alternative treatment.
How to Use
Before you start: Read and understand the Information Guide provided and watch the step-by-step DVD for great tips and techniques.
Remove all jewellery in the vicinity of the treatment area.
You may find it helpful to use a mirror for treating hard to see areas, such as the face and underarms. A mirror with 5–10 times magnification is ideal for this.
The hair needs to be visible enough for the laser to be aimed at the base of the hair. Long hairs may be trimmed before treatment if necessary.
Patch Test: 24 hours before treatment it is very important to do a patch test. The patch test will confirm the maximum power level for your skin type. Each area to be treated must be checked as skin colour can vary.
Step 2: Correctly enter the Security Button Sequence, then by using the /- buttons to select the correct power level for your skin type followed by the Enable button.
Step 3: Place the wand over the hair you wish to treat. Ensure both skin sensors are in contact with the skin (you may need to apply gentle pressure).
The white ‘ready’ light will illuminate.
Step 4: HALF press the treatment button on the wand. A red guide light will appear. You can move the wand while maintaining contact with the skin to target where the hair meets the skin. Ensure both skin sensors do remain in contact with the skin.
Step 5: FULLY press the button on the wand for treatment. The white light will go out and the red laser will be visible. You will hear a series of beeps.
Note: Do NOT move the wand during treatment
Step 6: When treatment ceases the orange light will come back on. Both skin sensors must be removed briefly from the skin before treating the next hair
Note: Treated hairs don’t always fall out immediately as they are shed over time as they are released from the hair follicle so be patient. Laser hair removal is generally considered to be effective after 6 treatments over a 6-month period. IPL (Intense Pulse Light) home approved products generally require ongoing treatments every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth.
Suitable for facial hair, underarms, bikini line and other problem hairs. Not suitable for use on removing large areas of hair.
