Epilation diode laser: description of the procedure

Epilation the diode laser – one of the most progressive methods of disposal of unnecessary hair on body and face. The device allows to remove quickly and completely even light or too thin hairs, doing skin ideally smooth and well-groomed.

Diode laser: in what advantages

Essence of operation of the diode laser – melanin destruction (dark pigment) in cores and follicles of hairs. Final disposal of vegetation requires several procedures. After everyone hairs become more and more thin and rare, the speed of their growth slows down.

Cosmetologists recommend diode option, considering what it has much less contraindications. The principle of operation of other lasers same, however each of devices has small shortcomings:

Preparation for the procedure begins in 2 days. It is recommended to shave hairs on zone which will undergo processing. By the time of epilation the tips will grow up to 1 mm - it is ideal length for fast destruction follicle. Just before laser processing it is impossible to delete indumentum in addition not to irritate the skin. It is strictly forbidden to pull out hairs tweezers or to apply the depilating creams, these procedures reduce efficiency of the laser.   

The area which is subject to epilation has to be absolutely clean. It is impossible to apply perfumery or cosmetics to skin, it can provoke burns. Also the oils creating film which prevents fast removal of unnecessary hairs are not recommended.

Before the procedure of the patient seat in chair or stack on couch, offer the dark glasses protecting eyes from flashes. The cooling gel is applied on skin which will be subjected to processing. In the course of epilation the gel covering will protect epidermis from excess thermal energy and will kill pain. Additional anesthesia is in certain cases performed, but usually it is not required.

The site of skin is processed by tip from sapphire crystal. The laser works with flashes, their quantity depends on type of hair and size of epiliruyemy zone. Most quicker there is processing of area over upper lip, on full epilation at the master no more than 15 minutes leave. It is necessary to spend for processing of legs 3 hours and more.
