Laser Hair Removal

 

We’ve received several requests to upload a new video of laser hair removal.  For those of you considering laser hair removal as an option to remove unwanted hair, look no further.  Here at Maine Laser Clinic, we use the world’s first fiber coupled Diode Laser Hair Removal device.

Why use a Diode Laser Hair Removal Machine for laser hair removal?

Diode devices are more stable mediums for safe operation and continuous output power.  This mechanism ensures a constant source of energy emitting the right wattage per pulse, ensuring a safe and high powered procedure that yields the most effect results for permanent hair reduction.

I heard IPL’s are better for hair removal?

Intense Pulse Light, or IPL devices are non-collomated light sources are in fact not lasers at all.  With IPL’s, there is substantial loss of selective targeting for permanent hair reduction.

Why is selective targeting important with Laser hair reduction?

Selective targeting is the secret sauce behind the absorption coefficient.  Meaning, the more energy that is absorbed by a particular chromophore, like hair pigment.  When undergoing Laser Hair Reduction, the overall effectiveness of the procedure is tied to the amount of energy being delivered AND absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft.

Hair shaft?  What does that have to do with Laser Hair Removal?

The hair shaft, or follicle contains the hair stems cells.  Those stem cells are responsible for regrowth of hair during the hair growth cycle.  When they are selectively targeted by a laser, the outcome is damage to the stems cells and a lot less hair!
