Diode Laser, LightSheer Desire, is a laser manufactured by the American company Lumenis®, a world leader in the production of medical and cosmetic lasers. It is the most modern device on the market for removing unwanted hair. It has a certificate of safety and quality issued by the U.S. Office for Food and Drug (FDA), worldwide honoured and certified by the relevant European institutions, including ISO 9001.
Based on the principle of selective photothermolysis, laser hair removal targets the entire hair structure, from the hair shaft down to the follicle. The light is absorbed selectively by the structure of hair follicle containing melanin, this is converted into heat, which in turn destroys the elements responsible for hair growth, therefore causing permanent hair loss and destruction of the follicle. As studies have shown, this phenomenon works most effectively on hair in the active growth phase (anagen). The remaining growth periods of our hair, the regression phase (catagen) and resting phase (telogen) are untouched by the laser.
