This 1-day manufactures machine operators training course, includes a full day of guided and supported study on underpinning knowledge and practical application of our Diode laser machine, at our Training centre in Rotherham.
Alongside this course you should also complete the Grade 4 online core of knowledge course which can be provided by us with the purchase of your machine.
Both these courses are required to gain insurance to provide treatments.
Our Diode course isn’t CPD accredited, therefore it will only benefit you if you have purchased our Diode machine.
Please note – It is always recommended to check with your local council the requirements for your area as some councils such as Nottingham, Wales, Ireland and London, do require you to have Level 4 / 5 qualifications.

Practical Session on machine
This new technology machine is designed to work with 3 different wavelengths (755nm, 810nm,1060nm), being able to adapt hair removal treatments to the needs of all kinds of patients / Clients during each season of the year. It can work with all skin types and with all kinds of hair type.
What is a Diode laser?
A diode laser 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 triple wavelength diode laser wavelength offers the deepest penetration levels and superior melanin absorption. These unique characteristics make the diode laser the most suitable technology for laser hair removal, enabling safe and effective treatment of all skin and hair types, in all body areas
How does it work?
Diode lasers us the principle of selective photothermolysis (SPTL) to target specific chromophores in the skin, usually melanin or blood.
The lasers damage the chromophores by selectively heating them while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. When treating unwanted hair, the melanin in the hair follicles is targeted and damaged which results in the disruption of hair growth and regeneration.
A Diode laser can be complemented by cooling technology, or other pain reducing methods which improve treatment efficacy and patient comfort.
The latest 3 wavelength technology
755nm: The 755nm is characterized by more powerful melanin absorption, making it suitable for the light-coloured and thin hair. In this way, this wavelength aims to remove the hair on such areas as eyebrows, upper lip, etc.
808nm: Suitable for almost all hair types, the 808nm can penetrate into the subcutaneous fat tissues as well as deep dermis so as to act on various body parts, making hair removal at any depth realized in an express and thorough way
1064nm: Because the 1064nm possesses the features of lower melanin absorption yet deeper penetration in follicles, it mainly provides solutions for dark hair colour.
