The primary principle behind diode laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL). The matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on surrounding tissue. Lasers can cause localized damage by selectively heating the melanin. Thereby heating up the basal stem cells in the follicle which causes hair growth, while not heating the rest of the skin. The -5 Celsius or 23 degrees arctic sapphire built-in cooling tip make the treatment painless.

Tattoos consist of thousands of particles of ink pigment suspended in the skin. While normal human growth and healing processes will remove small foreign particles from the skin, tattoo pigment particles are permanent because they are too big to be removed. Q-switch laser treatment causes tattoo pigment particles to heat up and fragment into smaller pieces. These smaller pieces are then removed by normal body processes.
Laser tattoo removal is a successful application of the theory of selective photo-thermolysis (SPTL). However, unlike treatments for blood vessels or hair the mechanism required to shatter tattoo particles uses the photo-mechanical effect. In this situation, the energy is absorbed by the ink particles in a very short time, typically nanoseconds. The surface temperature of the ink particles can rise to thousands of degrees but this energy profile rapidly collapses into a shock wave. This shock wave then propagates throughout the local tissue (the dermis) causing brittle structures to fragment. Hence tissues are largely unaffected since they simply vibrate as the shock wave passes.
20-30% reduction of tattoo color per treatment the gold standard
1064nm for black, dark blue, dark green
532nm for red, yellow, pink, permanent make-up, lip-line etc.
755nm for teal, light blue, light green (optional)
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, also known as the principle technology for epidermal photo-rejuvenation or the photo-facial. Treatments are performed at doctor’s offices and med-spas, day-spa and aesthetic establishments. IPL can be fantastic for erasing mild sun damage, freckles, irregular pigmentation and light brown spots on the face, neck, chest and back. In a nutshell, IPL treats the skin with quick and powerful flashes of light. The light energy then penetrates below the skin’s surface, where the unwanted brown pigment (melanin) lives. The heat breaks down this pigment into tiny particles, which either rise to the skin’s surface or get carried away by the body’s lymphatic system.
