OMI Laser Training Theory can be applied to all lasers used for hair removal.

The 1064 Yag laser using a 10ml spot size was used as the example throughout this program. The before and after photos as well as the testimonials included in the workbook and The Life & Death of a Hair textbook were results achieved using this technology.

Numerous lasers are now available by various manufacturers Internationally. The most recent offers a dual system using the 755 Alexandrite combined with the 1064 Yag.

Refer to your Operational Manual provided by your laser manufacturer for guidelines when selecting various spot sizes and suggested settings. You would then review the explanation in modules 4 and 7 to establish when to increase or decrease settings for maximum efficacy.

Application of laser hair removal treatment when treating all body parts for women and men can be used as noted in Module 9 of your workbook. Confirm with your Operational Manual when using alternate spot sizes and/or wavelength of your laser.
