The 808 diode laser stands as the pinnacle of Permanent Hair Removal, suitable for all pigmented hair and skin types, even dark pigmented skin. Utilizing a 808nm wavelength light beam with precise focus, diode lasers target specific areas within the skin.


Is the 808 diode laser superior to IPL?


When comparing Diode Laser Hair Removal to IPL Hair Removal, the 808 diode laser shines. Its power enables quicker treatments, delivering each pulse faster than IPL. The beauty of it? Diode laser treatments are effective across all hair and skin types. If the notion of hair follicle destruction feels daunting, rest assured, there’s no need to fear.


Mode of Action:


As the absorbed light raises the temperature in the hair follicle, proteins denature. This denaturation prevents nutrients from reaching the hair root, leading to hair falling out. Without nutrient supply, further hair growth ceases.


During treatment with the 808 diode laser, heat penetrates solely the skin layer containing hair papillae. The laser’s constant wavelength ensures unaffected other skin layers, surrounding tissue, and blood. This is because the dye haemoglobin in the blood reacts only to a different wavelength.


Crucial to treatment is an active connection between hair and hair root. Only in this growth phase can light directly reach the hair root. Hence, several sessions are necessary for successful permanent hair removal treatment.

Prior to undergoing diode laser treatment, it is crucial to refrain from waxing or epilating the hair. These methods remove the hair along with its root, rendering them unsuitable for treatment.


Shaving, on the other hand, poses no such issue as it only cuts the hair above the skin surface, preserving the vital connection to the hair root. This connection allows light beams to reach the hair root, facilitating successful permanent hair removal. Interrupting this connection extends the hair’s growth phase to approximately four weeks before it becomes treatable again.


Pigmented areas or moles are either covered or completely excluded from each treatment session due to their high melanin content.


Similarly, tattoos are avoided during treatment to prevent any potential color changes.
