Voltage of the Rio Scanning 20: 220V & 110V

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 area.

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 treatment.

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 in length.

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.

SAFETY FEATURES OF THE SCANNING 20:
•The unit must be unlocked using a key.
•A security button sequence is required to activate the unit, this can be found in the information guide.
•The Rio Scanning 20 machine also features a bright orange light which will cause you to blink if pointed directly at the eye.
•In addition the laser will only operate if both touch pins are in contact with the skin.
•The laser is also shielded to avoid any risk from reflected light.
•When moving the Wand to the next area, ensure the Touch Pins are briefly lifted off the skin to allow the laser to reset.
•Treat each area only once in each session.
