The cymedics diode laser acts on the basis of selective photothermolysis and targets melanin from a process point of view. The pre-programmed settings make its operation very easy and safe. In order to take into account the different experiences of users, cymedics diode offers two different modes of application. Firstly, the user sets the person-specific data, such as skin type, gender, body area, hair density, hair colour and hair thickness. The cymedics diode calculates from this the respective parameters to use. Now the proposed power settings can be changed in the basic mode, while – in addition – experienced users can vary pulse length and frequency in the special mode.
