Diode 808 Laser allows safe deep penetration into the skin. The infrared light absorbing the melanin is highly-efficient and reducing the risk of hyperpigmentation.

The laser concentrates a particular ray of light at a wavelength that is targeted at melanin in the hair and/or at the follicle growth core. Melanin is the substance that gives tone to the skin, as well as the hair. The laser light ray reaches the underlayer of the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle.
