Are you tired of constantly shaving or feeling like your sensitive skin is about to get ripped from aggressive waxing sessions?
If so, there’s a medical procedure to permanently reduce pesky hair without screaming on top of your lungs from painful waxing sessions. It is called the Medi-diode laser hair reduction and removal procedure.
Many consider this the perfect solution to bid goodbye to traditional hair reduction treatments. This article will discuss the benefits you can enjoy when you choose the Medi-diode laser way.
What is Diode Laser Hair Removal Treatment?
The Medi-diode laser hair removal procedure is the new aesthetic advancement that uses a specific wavelength laser light at 808/810 nm.
It is widely offered to permanently reduce hair growth and remove unwanted hair from specific body parts. The concentrated light and heat energy travel deep down to the hair follicles to destroy them. Unlike waxing, shaving, and tweezing, it burns the hair down to its roots without undergoing painful sessions.
How Diode Laser Hair Removal Works
This type of laser hair removal uses a beam of light precisely directed to the body part with unwanted hair. The hair’s pigment (melanin) absorbs the heat and light energy coming from the laser as it travels deep down to the hair follicle. Once it reaches down, the light emitted produces an intense heat that will burn the follicle and destroy it- preventing future growth.
Keeping that picture-perfect body is achievable with this type of treatment as it offers a broad spectrum of benefits you can enjoy. Here are some:
More Comfortable Hair Removal
This is one of the less painful procedures for permanent hair removal, unlike other hair removal methods. There are no topical anesthetics required for this painless procedure. As the laser handpiece with its cooling head passes over the treatment area, you may slightly feel discomfort. Because it doesn’t hurt that much, some clients don’t even realize it’s over. Others say it feels like a snap of a rubber band.
The Medi-diode treatment uses epilation to permanently remove your unsightly hair. This is an effective treatment to remove hair deep down to its roots rather than stripping it at its tip, like waxing and tweezing do. Diode lasers target the hair shaft when it is in its growth phase (in which hair grows every three to six weeks) to delay future hair growth and turn it into finer and thinner strands.
It doesn’t instantly stop actively growing, as you need to undergo multiple hair removal sessions (usually six sessions) to achieve that smooth hairless skin. It can be either of the following:
- The target hair stops growing back.
- The growth continues, but the treated hair comes off thin, flimsy, and barely visible.
Body Parts Covered:
- bikini line / bikini area
- upper lip
- arm pits
Suitable for All Skin Types
During the early stages of laser hair removal, specialists discovered that people with light skin and dark hair were the best candidates for this type of treatment.
Most patients with a darker skin color have a greater amount of melanin, making them more prone to burns and other forms of discoloration. For a person of color (POC), it’s challenging to undergo such treatments, but Medi-diode makes it possible to flaunt their fair skin.
With Medi-diode, all skin and hair types (Fitzpatrick skin types I–VI) and hair colors can benefit from the diode hair removal laser. Be wary that appropriate medical guidelines should still be observed. For a dark skin type, your doctor will check your medical history to maximize the chances of achieving the best results.
It successfully reduces thick hair growth; you will notice a significant difference in the treated area after a few sessions. Thinner hair regrowth may develop, requiring you to return for occasional follow-up treatments. The amount of maintenance laser treatments needed depends on other factors.
In most cases, there is no downtime observed with laser hair removal. That means you don’t need to file a leave from work to take a rest and forgo your daily activities. The treated part will most likely turn red and puffy right after the session, but it won’t last long to function like you used to.
Note: You should avoid sun exposure for 6 weeks prior and subsequent session for better results.
Minimize Ingrown Hair
Laser hair removal has been shown to help minimize ingrown hairs and skin irritation. Patients achieve smoother, cleaner skin and permanent hair reduction. It is because the treatment promotes the growth of straight hair.
