Choosing an Aesthetic Laser System: Laser Parameters for Effective Hair Removal

Permanent hair removal requires the destruction of the hair bulb located deep beneath the skin. For this application, lasers are becoming a popular alternative to electrolysis. This shift is occurring because lasers are noninvasive and the precision of the beam minimizes unnecessary damage to the surrounding skin, resulting in less pain and fewer side-effects. Lasers emit short pulses of infrared light that pass through the skin and primarily affect only the pigmented cells within the hair bulb. The heat from the laser permanently damages the cells, which prevents any further hair production.

Medical Diode Design: Multi-Wavelength Diodes for a Broad Spectrum of Customers

Companies are finally recognizing what medical laser manufacturers have known for years: there is no single color of “skin tone.” In cosmetics, skin care, and clothing, companies are broadening their spectrum to broaden their customer base. Matching a skin color is difficult because there is no simple way to define what a "skin color" even means. An object's "color" is a complicated mix of the spectrum of the incident light and how that object absorbs and reflects that light. At present, skin colors are described using the Fitzpatrick scale, a qualitative method based on the light-absorption features of the skin, which determine both the skin's apparent color and its propensity to sunburn. It's important to also remember that skin is a living thing that changes thickness, color, and texture, depending on age and environment.
