Hair removal with the diode laser
Method of diode laser hair removal
The technology of the diode laser is based on focused light, which characterizes the technologies of laser hair removal in general. In the case of the diode laser, the wavelength of the light is 808 nm, which is why this laser is often referred to with this number, commonly known as the diode laser 808. Thanks to the focused light, an effective and precise treatment of the hair follicle is possible. Additionally, the treatment is gentle and has a very low risk of burns due to frequent pulses and low energy.
Laser hair removal in Stuttgart
In Stuttgart, the diode laser is available for laser hair removal. If you desire treatment with the diode laser and your hair is deemed suitable after analysis, we can permanently free you from unwanted hair. Thanks to our central location, our laser hair removal institute is easily accessible from surrounding cities like Bad Cannstatt.
Procedure for laser hair removal with the diode laser
Biological fundamentals of hair
Hair growth is driven by the protein in the hair root. During the treatment with the diode laser, heat is generated there to denature the protein. Thus, the hair falls out after some time. Due to the now missing nutrients, no hair can grow back. This principle is used by many lasers for permanent hair removal*.
Hair laser wavelength
Thanks to its specific wavelength, the 808 diode laser is particularly well suited for the skin-friendly transmission of light pulses via melanin to the hair root. Melanin is a pigment that is present in the skin depending on the degree of tan. The light cells are converted into heat in the skin.
Effect of the hair laser on the body
The light energy from the diode laser is converted into heat in the skin. During a treatment, a focused beam of light waves is emitted on the targeted area using the handpiece of the diode laser. The focusing of the light allows for the precise laser treatment of individual hairs.
Hair & Body
What happens in the body?
The light waves cause an increase in temperature in the hair root and thus the denaturation of the proteins contained there. Consequently, the hair follicles now no longer receive nutrients, thus fall out and are not able to regenerate.
Another advantage of the wavelength of 808 nm is: Only skin areas that are occupied by hair papillae are heated by the light waves. Surrounding tissue remains unaffected, since the dye of the blood, hemoglobin, does not react to this wavelength either.
What must be taken into account?
For the treatment to be as effective as possible, the hair must be in the growth phase. Only in this way the hairs are in an active connection with the root and the light impulses can reach it. This is also the reason why several sessions are necessary to achieve permanent hair removal*.
Laser hair removal at home
The so-called “Laser Hair Removal at Home” typically uses IPL, which is not the same as a true laser. This light is scattered for safety reasons to avoid injuries. Effective and safe laser hair removal requires the expertise of a professional who can take the necessary safety measures and precautions. For long-lasting, professional results and your safety, it is recommended to undergo treatment with an experienced expert like Haarfreiheit in Stuttgart.
Please note that you should not epilate or wax the body part for at least 4 weeks before starting the treatment. This removes the hair with its root and destroys the necessary connection for the treatment. However, this does not happen when shaving, because here the light impulses on the hair can be transported to the hair root and the effectiveness of the diode laser or any other method of permanent hair removal with light, is maintained.
In addition, you should note that any pigmentary changes in the skin (pigment or liver spots) are covered and not treated before the treatment. These cells have a high concentration of melanin and would react very strongly to the treatment.
The same is the case with tattoos, as there is a risk of color change here.
It is not uncommon for slight redness to occur after treatment. However, these should have completely subsided after two days at the latest. You can prevent this with chamomile or aloe vera and support the healing process.
In addition, you should avoid solarium visits or sunbathing, because the natural UV protection is temporarily impaired by the treatment. For this reason, it is also advisable to use a sunscreen in the days following the treatment.
