The spec 3 Hybrid laser works on the principle of the melanin in the hair and doesn’t impact the surrounding skin. Meaning the penetration of the laser beam is directed straight towards the melanin in the hair bulb.
Laser hair removal targets the melanin in the skin which heats up the hair bulb and eventually destroys the hair follicle. The spec 3 Hybrid makes the hair removal journey comfortable even for the areas that have coarse hair growth such as bikini and underarms. The added cooling which is built into the system helps cool the skin down at the same time meaning less risk of any contra-indications compared to other laser hair removal systems.

The pulse width duration can be changed to suit the clients need and the thermal relaxation time can be amended depending on the skin type.
