Diode lasers are at the root of many of today’s most important technologies and are used by doctors, scientists, and researchers all over the world. In medical aesthetics, diode laser technology has a wide range of applications and is crucial for performing two of the most commonly sought-after treatments: hair removal and fat reduction. The variable wavelength of diode lasers harnessed by an advanced medical aesthetic device can allow your clinic to offer a spectrum of treatments to your patients. Below, we explore the benefits of using diode laser technology for fat reduction and hair removal as well as the Venus Concept devices that make this multi-use energy technology available.
Early laser treatments for hair removal were typically very slow and painful, and they only worked on people with dark hair and fair skin. Thankfully, science has come a long way since then. Since 2005, diode laser technology has outstripped earlier modalities in terms of efficacy in safety. It is also safe for a broad spectrum of skin types. Its superiority shows in the numbers: in 2020, the diode segment held the maximum share of over 39% of the laser hair removal market.
Besides the aforementioned benefits, diode lasers offer higher precision during treatment. This means that they can selectively target a particular body part and effectively remove the hair without harming the surrounding skin of the area. Combined precision and performance make diode laser treatments faster and more comfortable for the consumer, which in turn makes them more popular. In addition, the variable pulse intensity and duration make them safer for those with darker skin tones, with a reduced chance of incurring side effects such as hyperpigmentation and other post-procedural inflammation.
Venus Velocity™, our full-scale hair removal device, is for clinics that are planning to offer robust hair removal services. With the proven efficacy of diode laser technology and a real-time cooling system, Venus Velocity™ provides the optimal balance between high energy absorption of melanin chromophores and deep penetration into the skin. Its pulse and slide modes make it a versatile device ready to use on all areas of the body. Of course, it is effective for all skin types, including tanned skin. Venus Epileve™ is our tabletop model, offering the same powerful technology on a compact scale, making it portable for increased in-clinic efficiency. The easy-to-use applicator delivers fast and comfortable hair removal treatments for an experience that’s as smooth for the operator as is it for the client. Like our other devices, it is designed to be safe for all skin types, including tanned skin.
Body treatments continue to be a reliable and growing sector of the medical aesthetics industry. Laser modalities for non-invasive fat treatments are evolving rapidly: the newest 1064nm diode laser technology offers a significant advance over previous technologies such as cryolipolysis, ultrasound, and others. The use of diode lasers for such a treatment to perform fat reduction treatments offers benefits for clinicians and patients alike.
Venus Bliss™, employing the latest advances in medical aesthetic lipolysis devices, emits a 1064 nm wavelength laser through its diode applicators, which effectively passes through the skin and is absorbed by the adipose tissue layer. The targeted fat cells release stored triglycerides, causing some to shrink and others to destruct completely. Leftover cellular debris is processed out by the body through the lymphatic system. Backed by clinically validated effectiveness in fat reduction*, cellulite reduction, skin tightening*, and circumference reduction*, Venus Bliss™ is a comprehensive solution that delivers results with no per treatment usage fees for the provider. With the increasing demand for non-invasive fat reduction treatments, Venus Bliss™ helps you to grow your practice by offering patients the most innovative technology that is clinically proven to meet their aesthetic needs.
