It is a diode laser system ideal for hair removal, whose light waves are better absorbed by melatonin than oxyhemoglobin (methotonin and oxyhemoglobin are the main chromophore of the skin). The light received by the laser tissue is transformed into heat and causes its main effects. In this way, the radiation almost does not affect healthy non-pigmented cells, and absorbed mainly by melatonin, heat damage hair follicles, resulting in loss of hair for a long time
To reduce the risk of skin damage, while making the procedure for hair removal as painless and effective as possible, the Epid8 diode system acts on the hair follicle by sending enough enough low energy and short duration with a large amount (up to 10) impulses per second rather than separate single pulses ( as in most systems used today),
The depth with which the laser beam penetrates into the tissue is the result of a complex interaction between the wavelength of light, the concentration of chromophore in the tissue, the fluence and the amount of diffused light inside the fabric.
