Technology of the diode laser
Laser hair removal is often referred to as a general term for all light-based hair removal methods. However, laser hair removal specifically refers to hair removal using concentrated light, particularly the diode laser. This laser operates at a constant wavelength of 808nm and is also available at the Kaiserslautern institute. The use of concentrated light allows each hair follicle to be treated individually.
What exactly happens to the hair during diode laser treatment?
Protein compounds play a central role in the hair growth process and are the primary target of diode laser technology. This advanced laser acts on the hair by selectively denaturing the protein compounds in the hair follicles. This denaturation alters the structure of the proteins, which in turn affects the growth foundation of the hair. The hair follicles are weakened and inactivated, thereby inhibiting subsequent hair growth.
Effect of the diode laser
The diode laser operates at a constant wavelength of 808nm and intensity to selectively affect the protein compounds in the hair while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. This process allows for effective and permanent hair removal, as the hair becomes progressively thinner after several sessions and eventually does not regrow. It is important to note that the effectiveness of the diode laser depends on various factors such as skin type and hair color, but overall, it offers an advanced method for long-lasting hair removal.
Important Pre- and Post-Laser Treatment Considerations
Preparation for laser hair removal in Kaiserslautern
There are a few things to consider before starting a diode laser treatment. Already 4 weeks before the planned first treatment appointment you should refrain from waxing, epilation or sugaring. The reason for this is that with these mechanical procedures the hair is torn out together with the root. However, the light needs a conductor to reach the hair root which is only possible via hair.
However, shaving is recommended, because then the skin can calm down before the appointment. Shaving is different in that the hair is only cut off superficially, so the lower part remains in the skin and can transmit the light of the laser.
The laser treatment itself
To avoid potential adverse reactions to the heat, areas of pigmentation changes on the skin and tattoos are deliberately spared or covered during diode laser hair removal. These areas could react sensitively to the heat of the treatment. Therefore, it’s crucial to protect them carefully and ensure that light exposure in these regions is avoided. This not only ensures the safety of the procedure but also safeguards your skin and tattoos.
Care instructions after the laser treatment
After permanent laser hair removal, there can be rare cases of temporary skin irritations such as redness. This reaction is usually temporary and typically disappears within 1 to 2 days. However, if the symptoms unexpectedly persist or worsen, we strongly recommend contacting us immediately and scheduling a follow-up appointment. Your health and safety are our top priorities, and we are always ready to address any concerns.
