Alexandrite laser and other apparatus used in hair removal. Practical comparison. Part IV / Quantum Hair Removal
This refers to the light hair removal
methods, i.e. hair removal is a broadband light beam IPL.
The source of the light beam with the
quantum hair removal is already well known to us flash lamp, giving
out light flashes with a wavelength range of 530 to 1200 nm.
That is, in fact the quantum hair
removal is a form of photo hair removal.
A wide range of light waves, as well as
the presence of the emission spectrum of shorter wavelengths to 600
nm, leads to the absorption energy by not only the pigment melanin,
but virtually by all of the top layer of skin. This significantly
increases the risk of burns and pigmentation on the procedure.
I would like to note that the devices
for quantum hair removal are not equipped with cooling the skin.
Producer explains the fact that cooling
is not necessary, since the energy is transferred to the skin
gradually and with low.
Despite extensive advertising, to date,
this is the most controversial of the devices on the market
dermatology and cosmetology equipment. And it is interesting that
insurmountable disadvantages of these devices, advertisement
portrayed as virtues.
Advertising claims that the device
emits different wavelengths, so this technique has a different effect
on the skin.
However, glossed over the fact that,
unlike lasers, all these waves are emitted simultaneously, and do
nothing you can!
The depth of penetration of these
wavelengths into the skin ranging from a fraction of a millimeter to
centimeters! that is serious danger at work, for example, on the
Because of the presence of deeply
penetrating wavelengths at work on the eyes, the risk of damage is
impossible to get rid of even with protective glasses.
Thus, the application of pulsed lamps
in Quantum IPL hair removal is limited by their low selectivity
impact and high risk of side effects, including scarring.
Unlike quantum hair removal, photo hair
removal is the geometric shape of the light pulse. Manufacturer
devices for quantum hair removal, said that the device produces only
a square pulse. Which reduces energy losses arising in the ordinary
IPL-lamps, like photo epilator impulse comes in waves. The result is
saving the number of outbreaks and the financial costs of lamps
(lamps require less capacity). Also it reduce the cost of the
That is, theoretically, the advantage
of quantum hair removal is that it should be cheaper than photo
The power of light energy transmitted
to the skin for hair removal from the center to the perimeter of the
light spot is reduced.
In devices of quantum hair removal
manufacturer said the same power over the entire area of the light
spot. Theoretically, this should be the cause of the higher
efficiency of the procedure, but in practice this is to confirm or
quite difficult to refute.
In fact, quantum hair removal is
familiar to us photo epilation, but with features of supply of light
energy pulse lamp. That is confirmed by the manufacturers of devices,
enter the description: "Quantum appliance is a machine for
Therefore all said above in the section
of photo hair removal belongs to the technique of quantum hair
