The Mechanism of Olive Plus
The mechanism of laser epilation involves the absorption of laser light by the pigment melanin. The melanocytes of the hair bulb and
the melanin in the hair shaft heat up due to exposure o the laser light, as a result of which the hair follicle is damaged.
Long pulses lead to heat diffusion from the bulb to the area of the bulge and he matrix cells, leading to destruction of the capacity
for new hair follicle formation, and this leads to long- lasting results.
The higher the melanin absorption the better the effect, provided that the pulse duration is long enough and the penetration of light deep enough to reach the hair bulb. These aspects lead to a wavelength of about 810nm.
