This laser enables the use of continuous deep cooling for many seconds to remove heat from the follicles and surrounding tissue which results in added patient comfort and safety. Hair follicles make up a small percentage of the area of skin so most of the laser energy results in tissue heating.
Competitive systems use pulsed slective cooling to remove the heat only from the surface, wheras the ClearScan LAPG (Large Area Patten Generator) sapphire cooling plate removes the heat continously and non-selectively from tissue for maximum comfort and allows higher more effective fluence to be used. 4-7 treatments will usually provide the desired hair reduction. Yearly touch-ups may be necessary.
