As home optical devices usually deliver less energy per session than with professional treatments, it is important that consumers are given realistic expectations of post-treatment outcomes, according to a recent review. Patients may use home devices without disclosure to their physician and it is important as healthcare professionals to be aware of the existence of these devices, how to use the devices properly (including what diseases can be treated and which skin types are considered safe for use), as well as any adverse effects that may occur. A literature search was conducted, using the search terms, “home device dermatology,” “home device acne,” “home device hair” or “808nm diode laser hair removal machine,” and “home device aging.” Investigators found:
Currently, there are multiple home optical devices available on the market that have been approved for the treatment of acne, scars, hair removal, and wrinkles using intense pulsed light, light-emitting diode, heat, infrared, low-level light therapy, and laser.
Current dermatologic literature shows that these devices are promising with significant post-treatment results as well as a high level of safety.
Diode laser hair removal equipment adopts the technology that based on the selective dynamics of light and heat. The laser goes through the skin surface to reach the root of hair follicles;Then the light can be absorbed and converted into heat damaged hair follicle tissue. So that hair loss regeneration without injury surrounding tissue. It can reach the effect of no pain, easy operation, and permanent hair removal.
