The Scanning Laser x 20 works by sending a laser beam to the
hair follicle with enough energy to destroy the root, without
it affecting the surrounding area. The number of hairs the laser
aims at at each time is approximately 20 hairs. This process
is known as photothermolysis.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL EXPLAINED
The laser of the Scanning 20 delivers an intense beam of light which is made up of
a single wavelength or colour. Skin is essentially transparent
to light with a wavelength of 808 (nano meters), while melanin
containing structures will absorb laser energy of this wavelength.
It is therefore possible to target the hair follicle that has
a concentration of melanin without affecting the surrounding
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.
SUITABLE SKIN TYPES FOR THE RIO SCANNING 20X
Melanin in the epidermis also absorbs the energy and limits
the depth of penetration of the laser light into the skin. Using
a light wavelength of 808nm enables treatment of relatively
dark skin as well as fair-skinned types. However, laser hair
treatment is not suitable for Afro Caribbean or black skin complexions.
Laser treatment is also ineffective in removal of white, blond,
red or grey hair. Electrolysis should be considered as an alternative
HOW TO US THE RIO SCANNING X20
Obviously read and understand the Information Guide provided
before you get started and watch the step-by-step DVD for great
tips and techniques. For best results we recommended that you
use the SCAN mode on hairs that have been trimmed to 1mm-2mm
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 SCAN button
once and place the wand on your skin then press and hold the
button on the wand to zap the hairs. After that you can move
onto the next area of hairs to be treated until you are done.
Treated hairs don’t always fall out immediately as they
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.
