What is SmartDiode Laser?
It is a certified medical grade diode laser for the application of superfast hair removal for all
skin types on the Fitzpatrick scale. Endorsed by leading medical experts it is safe and highly

professional modes based on the area being treated and your skin type, technicians have
the ability to deliver treatments safely and effectively.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
