|You can now enjoy the benefits of permanent hair reduction without paying for expensive salon treatments. Home laser hair removal is suitable for most areas including facial hair, underarms, arms, legs and bikini line. |
The Rio® SALON LASER™ works by sending a laser beam to the hair follicle with enough energy to destroy the root, without it affecting the surrounding area. This process is known as photothermolysis. Unlike home use IPL (Intense Pulse Light) the results of laser treatment are permanent.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL OR IPL?
LASER HAIR REMOVAL EXPLAINED
The light energy absorbed by the melanin pigment results in the rapid heating up of the hair follicle. This heat destroys the cells (papilla) responsible for hair growth. If adequate heating is achieved, then the follicle is permanently disabled resulting in a permanent reduction in hair growth. Note: This is different from home IPL (Intense Pulse Light) which requires continued treatments every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth.
SUITABLE SKIN TYPES
HOW TO USE
24 hours before treatment it is very important to do a patch test. The patch test will confirm the maximum power level for your skin type. Each area to be treated must be checked as skin colour can vary.
By using the +/- buttons to select the correct power level for your skin type you're ready to go. Press the enable button once and place the wand on your skin then press and hold the laser button on the wand to zap the hair. You can move onto the next hair to be targeted.
Treated hairs don't fall out immediately but are shed over time as they are released from the hair follicle so be patient. Laser hair removal is generally considered to be effective after 6 treatments over a 6-month period. IPL (Intense Pulse Light) home approved products generally require ongoing treatments every two weeks to prevent hair regrowth.

STUDY A retrospective study of 1000 women with Fitzpatric Skin Types II and VI.
Harvard Medical School / Laser Center of New York. Effective, Permanent Hair Reduction Using a Pulsed, Diode Laser.
STUDY 92 patients treated at two separate facilities, comprising 45 males and 47 females with varying hair colours and skin types. Treatments were made at 0, 1, 3, 6 and 9 months.
CONCLUSION 89% of patients achieved significant permanent hair reduction in this large, long-term, blind, controlled and quantitative study. Many patients had nearly complete, permanent hair reduction after two treatments. Re-growing hair was typically thinner and lighter in colour, adding to the cosmetic benefit.
Harvard Medical School. Study of Diode Laser for Hair Reduction on all Skin Types.
STUDY Forty subjects, 25 female and 15 males with coarse, dark hair on their thigh and backs were treated.
CONCLUSION An 800 nm diode laser provides for effective, long-term hair reduction of medium to coarse pigmented hair, even in some darker-skinned patients. Both short-term hair growth delay and permanent hair reduction was observed. In addition, when hair re-growth did occur, the hair was thinner and lighter.
