The New Era of Hair Removal
- The only wavelength which is effective at treating fine and light hair. In fact, no other type of laser is able to combine an efficient melanin absorption (at 755 nm), a high peak power (more than 6,000 W) and the possibility of selecting a short pulse length (up to 2 ms).
- The Moveo handpiece allows unwanted hair to be removed by means of a new method that is easier, faster, safer and more effective (painless treatment, also suitable for darker skin types).
- An innovative technology that structurally simplifies the heart of the laser system, reducing costs and maintenance problems.
- A compact, portable system with a surprisingly low cost!
The Moveo handpiece with the sapphire tip, developed by DEKA’s R&D, is the killer application in medical laser hair removal. It is a new idea based on 4 fundamental concepts:
The Effectiveness of Technological Innovation
The energy emitted by a laser system with wavelength visible and near infrared radiation is largely reflected by the skin. The graph below shows the reflectivity of the skin at various wavelengths and melanin content. For instance, the 755 nm Alexandrite laser wavelength demonstrates the percentage of reflection with melanin content of 8% (corresponds to phototype III) is over 50%. This is a significant portion of energy lost during the treatment, which cannot be used for therapeutic purposes.
This is due to the high variation of reflectance between the skin and the surrounding air. The Moveo handpiece was designed to solve this problem. DEKA has developed a technology using a sapphire tip that drastically reduces the amount of energy reflected by the skin, with an efficiency that has never been seen until now.
