Linscan 808 Diode laser (Manufactured by GME Germany) for Light Assisted Hair Reduction now made available in Alok Clinic.
The conventional Diode lasers were good for thick hair and fair skin. But were proving painful for Indian type of skin and less effective for thinner hair. But Linscan is much advanced machine.
Due to its linear scanning technique in LINSCAN, as well as inbuilt 'Motion Control Technology', the machine is much safer, painless as well as more effective than conventional machines. Excellent cooling adds to the reduction of pain. It has special settings to treat thinner hair. It has speed, which enables us to treat large areas to be treated in a relatively short time.
We already have an Intense Pulse Light System (JAG VPL) for last few years, which will now be useful for some patients desiring to take economical treatments. We also do Electroblend, which is old yet unique treatment for patients esp. of white hair. It is also useful if patient has just few hair strands and does not want to spend a lot for light assisted treatments.
So, Alok Clinic has become a unique clinic where all the three modalities of hair reduction are available.
