September 12, 2021

How often to do opt hair removal is about 1 month apart. In order to achieve a good hair removal effect, it basically takes 4-6 times, and the interval between each time is preferably one month. Because the growth state of hair is in the anagen phase, the telogen phase and the degenerative phase, a single laser treatment is more effective only for those hair follicles in the anagen phase, while the melanin content of the hair follicles in the anagen phase and telogen phase is very low, only when these hairs turn The laser can only work after entering the growth period.

The principle of OPT photon hair removal is to use strong pulsed light with a wide spectrum of 610-1000nm and a wide range of adjustable pulse widths, so it can permanently remove skin and hair on various parts of the human body with different colors and depths. It is generally believed that hair removal is based on the selective photothermolysis principle of the patented intense pulsed light source, which uses the melanocytes in the hair follicle to absorb light in a specific wavelength band, so that the hair follicle generates heat and selectively destroys the hair follicle. At the same time, the emitted heat can be transmitted to the deep part of the hair follicle through the cross section of the hair shaft to rapidly increase the temperature of the hair follicle, so as to achieve the effect of removing hair while avoiding damage to the surrounding tissue. Since the hair follicle can no longer be regenerated, what OPT photon hair removal achieves is Permanent hair removal effect.


1. Folliculitis: It can be caused by improper preoperative hair removal needles and skin disinfection, postoperative content retention and pore occlusion.

2. Internal bleeding: Inadequate preoperative examination, certain blood diseases, or rough operation of the needle tube bending, as well as postoperative strenuous activities can cause internal bleeding.

3. Thermal damage to the skin: The hair removal needle is not inserted correctly, the insulating part is kept away from the skin or the switch is pressed too early during the needle insertion process, resulting in epidermal burns.

4. Depigmentation: Postoperative infection and scar softening may eventually cause depigmentation.

5. Local redness and swelling: It is mainly a specific reaction caused by tissue thermal vaporization, and it may also be a manifestation of infection.

6. Scar: Mainly due to allergies or scar constitution, or postoperative infection, and excessive damage.

7. Eczema with sebaceous gland deficiency: The sebaceous glands are located near the hair shaft, and the duct orifice is located below the pores. It is easy to cause pore occlusion and sebaceous gland damage during hair removal.

6. Postoperative bleeding, inflammation and other common phenomena will vary according to individual circumstances.
