Diode Laser

The Diode Laser is a high-tech equipment used in advanced aesthetic treatments and is a very popular option for permanent hair removal.

Nowadays, there are different machines that perform laser hair removal, and what sets them apart is the type of wavelength used, which can vary according to the depth reached by the beam of light.

What is the diode laser?

The diode laser is a laser hair removal device that emits a beam of light with a wavelength of 810nm, reaching the skin at a moderate depth. The melanin present in the hair follicle absorbs this energy, destroying it.

The remarkable results in dark and thick hair with different skin types, and the fact that it is a safe and painless method, make this technology one of the most sought-after for permanent hair removal.

How does the diode laser work?

To understand how the diode laser works, we have to understand the hair.

Each hair has an external part that emerges from the epidermis and is visible, and an internal part that is inside the dermis and is invisible.

The internal part, the root, is known as the hair follicle, which is a complex structure composed of several other elements and where the hair germinal “root” responsible for hair growth is present.

The emitted laser beam of light reaches the skin and is transformed into thermal energy absorbed by the hair’s melanin, causing the weakening and destruction of the hair follicle, preventing it from growing back.

Diode laser vs. Alexandrite laser

When compared to the Alexandrite laser, the diode laser has the advantage of being more modern and advanced in terms of technology.

The Alexandrite laser emits a wavelength of 755nm, which has a more superficial penetration in the tissue, so it is more effective in superficially rooted, light and thin hair, but only in phototypes I-II.

Moreover, the diode laser has a much lower risk of causing burns to the skin compared to the Alexandrite laser. This is because the diode laser is less aggressive and also has the advantage of being safer on darker skin.

Diode laser vs. Yag laser

Another equipment option for permanent hair removal is the Yag laser, with a wavelength of 1024nm, is also known for its effectiveness and safety in high phototypes (dark skin).

However, compared to the diode laser, it may not be as effective in removing thicker and darker hair in lower phototypes.

Diode laser vs. triple wavelength laser

The triple wavelength laser combines the three laser technologies: Alexandrite, diode, and Nd:YAG in one device. It takes advantage of the best of each one, and therefore, it is a very versatile and safe solution.

Benefits and drawbacks of the diode laser

The benefits of using the diode laser for permanent hair removal are many, including its effectiveness, safety, and practicality.

It is essential to remember that, like any aesthetic treatment, the use of the diode laser has its contraindications and possible side effects.

People with very dark skin, for example, may not be ideal candidates for the treatment (in these cases, the best solution may be the Nd:YAG laser).

Procedures and results of the diode laser

The results of diode laser hair removal are noticeable after the first session.

The number of sessions required may vary depending on the area to be treated and the hair density, but on average, about four to six sessions are necessary to achieve the expected results.

Before opting for diode laser treatment, it is essential to consult an aesthetic specialist to find out if you are a suitable candidate.
