Diode laser is the latest innovative laser treatment for hair removal. This permanent hair removal laser procedure uses a narrow focus light beam to remove unwanted hair faster and with lesser discomfort.
Diode lasers can penetrate very deep into the skin levels. Hence, they produce the most effective and painless laser hair removal after-treatment outcomes.
This advanced laser treatment prevents future hair growth once it targets the hair follicle. A hair follicle is a part of the skin that supports hair growth on the skin.
A clinician or dermatologist will press a hand-held Diode laser device on your skin. A cooling section on the tip of the device or a cool gel can be used to protect your skin and reduces the risk of side effects. (Even for the most sensitive skin.)
This cooling process improves the patient’s comfort level significantly. When the permanent hair removal laser works on the targeted areas’ hair follicles, you’ll experience a tingling sensation.
However, you can also request a numbing cream first. After the procedure, you can apply a soothing lotion or an ice pack to cool the treated skin area.
The following is how the permanent hair removal laser procedure goes. The laser beam will penetrate your skin to the hair follicles when the doctor turns on the laser. The high-energy laser light removes hair follicles by targeting the melanin in the follicle. Melanin is the pigment that provides hair with its color.
The melanin surrounding the hair follicle selectively absorbs the energy while unaffecting the neighboring tissue. The blood supply to the hair follicle is destroyed as the melanin heats up.
The presence of melanin allows the laser to precisely aim, heat, and damage the hair follicle.
This process will disable the hair growth permanently.

Hair follicles targeted by the diode laser are forever gone. No type of treatment or stimulation in the future will bring back a hair follicle that has been correctly and fully treated successfully.
