What Makes Diode Hair Removal Lasers the Most Effective

Diode laser hair removal has become a more popular method of removing unwanted hair compared to IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments, but what makes diode technology so effective? Below we look at the technology behind diode lasers and how the Asclepion MeDioStar®, backed by Astanza, proves to be a safe and powerful hair removal laser.


Diode Technology

One of the key differences of diode laser devices is the single wavelength of light (and second wavelength found in the MeDioStar®) with a high absorption rate in melanin. This hair removal laser heats up and destroys the root of a hair follicle to permanently remove unwanted hair. Unlike other kinds of laser hair removal, diode lasers incorporate skin cooling throughout each treatment step, protecting the skin’s surface and mitigating the risk of thermal injury. Diode lasers, such as the MeDioStar®, can be safely used on all skin types – including tanned skin – due to the high-frequency, low fluence pulses they generate.

MeDioStar® Diode Hair Removal Laser

When purchasing or upgrading a hair removal laser device, the most crucial research is finding out how effective a laser is in removing unwanted hair and preventing future growth. The Asclepion MeDioStar® is the ultimate diode hair removal laser to remove hair quickly and effectively while giving your patients the fastest treatments on the market.

This powerful diode laser machine provides two wavelengths that target the deepest follicles to prevent further growth. The 810 nm and 940 nm wavelengths combined with the MeDioStar®’s powerful laser energy targets the root of hair follicles, delivering impressive results with just one session. Its short pulse length (3 – 400 ms) and unique 360° cooling system developed through the MeDioStar®’s handpieces guarantees a safe treatment for all skin types (Fitzpatrick I – VI) and newly tanned skin. As mentioned, high-frequency low fluence pulses allow more comfortable hair removal treatments for patients. The MeDioStar®’s dynamic mode gives short pulses of up to 20 Hz, making this diode laser an extremely powerful tool for removing unwanted hair.

Safest Laser Hair Removal Technology

For the most comfortable application, the MeDioStar® is designed with new silver Monolith 360º handpieces that cool the skin immediately before each treatment pulse. Each handpiece has a cooling system on its tip to protect the skin from burns, cool the epidermis before, during, and after treatment, and enable treatments in any direction so practitioners can keep their clients comfortable.

To make treatments faster, the MeDioStar® has various-sized handpieces available. These handpieces range from small to extra-large, allowing practitioners to treat upper lip hair in less than a minute or a large back in less than four minutes! These handpieces enable the best manageability and more effective treatments with a maximum power of 5,000 watts and a spot size of 10cm2–the largest in the laser hair removal device market.
