808nm Diode Laser Hair Removal
The Magma System, featuring Formatk advanced 808nm Diode Laser technology for effective, safe and painless hair removal treatments for all skin types. The 808nm Diode Laser has three key advantages over older methods of epilation:
IPL hair removal
Using Formatk unique IPL technology (featuring both USP and UPC technologies) an effective and safe hair removal procedure is achieved as Broad-Light spectrum is applied to the surface of the skin, targeting melanin.
064nm Nd:YAG Hair removal
Using the Nd:YAG for hair removal is ideal for patients with darker skin and deep hairs.
The two wavelengths which can safely be used for laser hair reduction on darker skin types are the diode (808 nm) and Nd:YAG (1064 nm).
In terms of efficacy, the shorter wavelength (diode) laser is generally regarded as more effective because of ‘melanin’s higher absorption value which decreases with increasing wavelength. However, the longer wavelength Nd:YAG laser is considered ideal for treating patients with darker skin, due to reduced scatter and deeper penetration of the laser light. Also, shorter pulse durations can be more safely used with the Nd:YAG laser than with the diode.
