Salon Laser Description
Voltage: 220V &
The Rio Scanning 60 works by sending a laser beam to the hair
follicle with enough energy to destroy the root, without it
affecting the surrounding area. This process is known as photothermolysis.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL EXPLAINED
Lasers deliver an intense beam of light which are made up of
a single wavelength or colour. Skin is essentially transparent
to light with a wavelength of 808nm (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
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. Note: This
is different from home IPL (Intense Pulse Light) which often
requires continued treatments every two weeks to prevent hair
HOW TO USE THE SALON LASER RIO SCANNING 60
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
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 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.
SUITABLE SKIN TYPES FOR THE SALON LASER RIO SCANNING X 60
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 or grey
hair. Electrolysis should be considered as an alternative treatment.
• The Salon Laser 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 Salon Laser (Rio Scanning 60) 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 of the Salon Laser is also shielded to
avoid any risk from reflected light.
•When moving the Wand of the Rio Scanning 60 to the next
area, ensure the Touch Pins are briefly lifted off the skin
to allow the laser to reset.
