How V-Frost Differs From Other Laser Hair Removal Machines

As laser hair removal became more popular, more companies started to manufacture laser hair removal machines. Higher demand, more laser machine suppliers, cheaper laser machines lead to a decrease in laser hair removal treatment prices. However, how does one go about choosing the perfect machine for their laser spa or clinic? Our V-Frost is more affordable and super easy to use, comes with certified training as well as a one year warranty.

A lot goes into choosing the perfect laser hair removal machine when you are about to open your own laser spa. The price of course, is a big argument. The quality and delivery of treatment matter too. As a concerned business owner, the warranty can nudge you in the right direction.
Why choose our V-Frost?

You must also think of who your clients will be and what they will be looking for in your laser spa. For a long time, laser hair removal has been the subject of a lot of misconceptions, i.e. it is painful, does not work on dark skin, does not work on fair hair, etc. However, one thing that our V-Frost does much better than others is that due to its specific features, it is one machine that fits all needs.

Let us explain.
1. Diode Laser

One feature of our V-Frost for laser hair removal machine is that it has a 808nm diode laser. A diode laser uses semiconductor technology that produces coherent projections of light in the visible to infrared range.

It uses a light beam with a narrow spectrum to target specific chromophores in the skin. Compared to other laser systems such as the Ruby and Alexandrite, the 800nm diode laser wavelength offers the deepest penetration levels and superior melanin absorption.

Diode lasers use the principle of selective photothermolysis to target specific chromophores in the skin. The lasers damage the chromophores by selectively heating them while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.

When treating unwanted hair the laser targets melanin in the hair follicles and damages it. This results in the disruption of hair growth and regeneration. A cooling technology, or other pain reducing methods which improve treatment efficacy and patient comfort, often complements a diode laser (which our V-Frost does).

In conclusion, the diode laser in our V-Frost allows to better target the pigments in the hair and damage the follicle more permanently. All the energy gets to its destination, thus providing much better results.
2. ND: YAG

Another feature that makes our V-Frost for laser hair removal so unique is that it uses a long-pulsed ND:YAG technology. An Nd:YAG laser is a solid state laser capable of producing a near-infrared wavelength that penetrates deep into the skin. Melanin chromophores then absorb the energy.

The lasing medium of Nd:YAG (Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) is a man-made crystal (solid state) that is pumped by a high intensity lamp and placed into a resonator (a cavity capable of amplifying the power of the laser).

The deeper levels of the dermis absorbs Nd:YAG laser energy selectively. The laser energy delivered using long pulses converts into heat in the tissue.

Our V-Frost can have up to 3 wavelengths. The 1064nm wavelength can safely treat all skin types because it deposits its energy deep into the dermis without relying on melanin to do so. This is also why it works great on fair hair which is usually low in pigments.

In conclusion, because our V-Frost uses ND:YAG laser with three different wavelength, it can treat all skin complexions and hair colors. Thus, one machine would allow you to treat all your clients.
3. Treatment is painless

One of the biggest misconceptions about laser hair removal? It is painful. Most people are reluctant to try laser hair removal because they think it is painful. While “pain” is not the right word to describe the sensation felt during a session, it is not as “painful” as waxing, sugaring or electrolysis.

The sensation during laser hair removal compares to a rubber band snapping against your skin very fast. Some will also compare it to a mosquito bite. However, a snap is a good way to explain it.

This snap actually happens when the light pulse gets to the follicle where it turns into thermal energy and damages the follicle permanently. Yet, it is not painful. It may be unpleasant and uncomfortable but still beatable.

One unique feature of our V-Frost is that treatments are virtually painless. Indeed, the machine has a cooling system. It will blow a breeze that will cool the skin off and make the treatment more comfortable.

In conclusion, the treatment is painless due to its very nature and the diode and ND:YAG lasers. Furthermore, its cooling system makes it even more comfortable.
4. Treatment is faster

If you are still wondering whether our V-Frost machine for laser hair removal would be a good addition to your laser spa, here is another reason. The gun has a 12 x 12 mm2 laser head. Why should you care?

Well, the size of the laser gun will represent a significant time gain for your laser business. You will indeed be able to perform treatments faster, thus each session will take less time. As a consequence, you will be able to fit in more clients in the same period of time.

For example, an area like the underarms will be done in less than ten minutes. Lower legs will be treated in twenty minutes. While quality of the treatment remains a key focus, you can be confident V-Frost will let you treat more patients in a shorter time frame.

The size of the laser head as well as the speed of the pulse will make it easier to just slide up and down the treated area. The machine of course offers the option to change the intensity of the laser, speed of pulse, wavelength, etc.
5. Results are better

Last but not least, our V-Frost for laser hair removal machines differs from other laser machines on the market simply because the results it produces are better.

Indeed, the treatment is virtually painless and very comfortable. The machine can treat all skin types and hair color. Furthermore, each session will require less time since the laser head is big enough to allow time gains.

A focus our engineer worked with while designing and manufacturing the V-Frost is the efficacy of the treatment as well as speed of results. V-Frost provides patients with excellent results from the first session. They will see a significant change between before and after as the hair starts to shed.

Results tend to be more permanent. Plus, the diode laser allows the energy to penetrate deep under the skin and damage the hair follicle more thoroughly.
In conclusion

The V-Frost is a laser hair removal machines that differs from other options on the market because it offers a one-machine-treats-all solution. Indeed, with one V-Frost, you can treat light to very dark skins, very light hair to black hair. The only thing that you have to change is the wavelength to adapt to each client.

The machine offers a painless treatment that is very comfortable, faster and that also provides great results early on in the treatment. When it comes to hair removal, customers are impatient and want to see body hair gone quick. The V-Frost laser machine does exactly that!
