The ultimate benchmark for hair removal lasers

Theia 808nm Fibre Coupled Diode Laser

Operator friendly, small, anti-fatigue, super light hand-piece to work with.

YOUR BENEFITS

Bring your Laser Clinic to Life Instantly

3 to 5 times longer diode life expectancy than other lasers with similar technical specifications. The Theia 808nm have a life expectancy of 50 million pulses, compared to 10 to 15 million pulses that is the norm.

More than 50% less in purchase price than other technical comparable lasers.

High-end equipment at an affordable price that will last very long. This machine will still be as effective in 10 or 15 years from now as it is today. The design might be outdated and the user interface might be ‘old school’. But, the result from your treatments will be as extraordinary 15 years from now as it is today.

What does this really means to you?

To start with, from day one, you own superior quality equipment that provides results and not empty promises like most machines on the market nowadays. You do not have to budged for an upgrade that will double the price because you had to start with the less expensive option to start or extend your business.

A diode replacement is the most expensive part on a diode laser and range between 80% and 95% of the total cost of the machine. Your profits multiply 3 to 5 times to that commonly acceptable in the industry currently, if you don’t have to make any diode replacements.

If you buy a machine with a life expectancy of 15 million pulses for R500 000, the average pulse can be calculated at R0,03 (three cents) per pulse. The true cost is R0,06 (six cents) per pulse, since you have to budget for the diode replacement in 15 million pulses.

When you purchase the Theia 808nm your true pulse cost is R0,007, less than 1 cent. That is the true cost per pulse. With the Theia 808nm your actual machine cost is eight and a half times less than that of the competition. For every pulse you give with the Theia 808nm during a treatment, you have 5 cent more available than the competition to invest in marketing or anything else you wish.

Legally Imported Into South Africa.

The Theia808 Fibre Diode Laser is legally imported into South Africa and is registered with SAHPRA. This means you can fully insure against malpractice.

We do all the paper work for your Department of Health registration.

You only have to approve the documentation with a single signature. We ensure that the rest are in order.

Best Training Money Can Buy.

When you invest in your Theia808 Fibre Diode Laser you are enrolled in a LaserCollege course. Your LaserCollege certificate is accredited in 136 countries.

Extreme Long Lifespan.

25 million pulses guaranteed. Expected lifespan of 50 million pulses. This is 4 to 5 times longer than the life expectancy  of most diode lasers.

Uniform energy distribution.

Fibre coupled diode lasers are designed with a uniform energy distribution at a small divergence angle for more gentle and effective depilation.

2 Year Manufacturers Guarantee.

No one else is willing to give a five year guarantee on their equipment. We don’t talk we deliver.

Medical CE certificate and SAHRPA License.

The Theia 808nm is CE certified under Directive 93/42/EEC as a class III medical device. Class III is the highest class for medical devices. This means it has the same classification as a laser used in an operating room during open-heart surgery.
The Theia 808nm is not limited to doctors and medical trained personnel to purchase and use this device. As a laser therapist, you have the assurance that you are working with the highest quality equipment.

It fulfil all legal requirements to be sold and used on the local market. It is licensed with the South African Health Products Regulating Authority, license number 1759/32691.

This means that you can run your clinic completely legal, since we do your registration with the South African Health Products Regulating Authority for you when you buy this machine.

It also means that you can insure this machine fully for mishaps to the machine, as well as malpractice since it is legal in SA. You do not have the risk of your insurance company refusing to pay out or cancel your insurance policy as is the case of unlicensed lasers.

Extreme long lifespan.

The diodes in the Theia808 have a guaranteed lifespan of 25 million pulses and an expected lifespan of 50 million pulses. No other distributor on the market is going to provide you with a guarantee for more than 15 million pulses.

The engineers have enough space to create an ideal environment inside the main body of the machine for the diodes. This alone can easily extend the life expectancy five fold. Give that diode replacements are the most expensive maintenance you have, it can easily justify to pay two to three times more for a fibre coupled delivered system.

This means that over the lifespan of your Theia808 you will pay only 20% in running cost compare to any other diode laser that have the diodes in the hand-piece.

Operator friendly, small, anti-fatigue, super light hand-piece to work with.

Not just a beautiful, artfully designed hand-piece.

It is ergonomically designed to be operator friendly, small, anti-fatigue, super light to work with for a full day.

Active skin cooling

Real active skin cooling. The Theia808 is equipped with a sapphire crystal, and intelligent freezing temperature control.

The diodes are not housed in the hand-piece. The cooling in the hand-piece is exclusively for skin protection and not for diode cooling.

Functional spot size

The Theia808 comes with a 12 mm x12 mm spot size and 8 mm x 8 mm adaptor. You can easily treat over contoured and sensitive areas, like a chin or bikini area, and have full contact with each pulse. Yet, you can also treat large areas like legs or a full back just as fast and comfortably.

Long pulse duration

The Theia 808nm has a maximum pulse length of 400 milliseconds. This means that the pulse extends to the maximum length of the thermal damage time (TDT) of the dermal papilla, which can take up to 400 ms. You can treat the most stubborn hair with this machine.

It means that you will not reach a plateau in your treatment results after the third session.

When doing laser hair removal there are two time sensitive processes you need to get right for successful results.
The first is to heat the hair long enough (and create high enough heat during this time). The reason for this is that you use the hair as an element to generate heat from the light and then you need to give the heat time to travel to the surrounding tissue. This process is known as the thermal relaxation time (TRT). If the pulse duration is too short, you will damage or destroy the hair without permanent results, because the heat will not have time to travel to surrounding tissue.

Once you have enough heat traveling to the surrounding tissue, you need time for the heat to heat up the target tissue (dermal papilla) long enough (and high enough heat) to destroy the dermal papilla. This process is known as the thermal damage time (TDT). This process can take up to 400 ms to complete.
Apart from the pulse duration to do this you also need sufficient fluence.

Another benefit from the long pulse duration is that it also makes the Theia 808nm super safe for dark skin types. If you can extend the time over which you transfer the energy to the skin, the effect on the epidermis is less aggressive. Keep in mind that the epidermis is always the first layer of tissue that the laser light encounter and will always be effected by the laser light.

The epidermis dissipates heat very slowly. Because of this you have the risk of causing a burn wound when you generate too much heat in a short period of time. This becomes more problematic with darker skin types.
With a long pulse duration you give the heat that build up in the epidermis time to dissipate. When you do this, the client has less pain and the risk on skin damage is greatly reduces. While you increase the treatment results.

Uniform energy distribution.

The Theia808 delivers a uniform laser pulse. It means that you treat the whole spot equally effective in each pulse. You do not have an area in the middle of the spot that is stronger than the rest of the spot. Or all the energy concentrated on the outer ring of the spot.

Because the light generated by the Theia808 travels over a long distance with a fibre, the engineers can manipulate it in such a way that by the time the light reaches the handpiece, the energy is uniformly spread over the spot size.

A great risk with diode lasers where the diodes are located in the handpiece is that you have a higher concentration of energy around the outer border of the spot size. When you overlap, this creates an area with significant higher skin damage risk. With the Theia808 you do not have this risk or problem. The energy is uniformly divided over the complete spot size.

As an added bonus, this feature also ensure a consistent result over the treatment area.

The Theia808 is a real work horse.

The Theia808 can work 24 hours non-stop. You will never treat client’s non-stop day after day, but the Theia808 can.

High energy output.

The Theia808 is a professional unit that provides a high maximum energy output of up to 120 J/cm2. Allowing for profession results on all your treatments. This energy output compares and sometimes even surpass the known high-end brands.

The fluence a machine can deliver is one of the main characteristics that determine the price of a machine. You will notice that the known high-end laser manufactures will always tell you the fluence of their machine. While entry-level laser manufactures will hide or disguise the fluence of their equipment. But why?

The fluence is the actual amount of energy you have available per square centimetre (J/cm2). The heat you need to destroy the dermal papilla is generated by the energy that the machine can generate. Even if all the other parameters on your machine are perfect, if you cannot generate enough heat, the dermal papilla will not be destroyed.

The power of a laser for hair removal has no relevance on achieving successful results. The word power is misleading for a lot of people because it does not refer to the energy that the machine can generate. It refers to the rate at which the machine can transfer the energy it generated to the skin. And the ability to transfer a small amount of energy very quickly doesn’t allow for successful hair removal results.

With the Theia808 you have the fluence to generate enough heat, over a long enough period of time, to destroy the dermal papilla.

Single 808 nm wavelength.

The Theia808 is available in single wavelength of 808 nm

There is no scientific proof that triple wavelength hand-pieces actually provide superior results to single wavelength units. But, there are a couple of points you should keep in mind when dealing with this decision.

Having the benefits of three wavelengths also means that you have the drawbacks of three wavelengths. A wavelength in the 600’s nm range has a much higher affinity for melanin that a wavelength over 900 nm. Although the manufacture compensate for this to a certain extent, they have to deal with averages. By default, you will not have the same control over the treatment and the outcome than you will have with a single wavelength.

Different laser modules (different wavelengths) have different technical specification to run optimally. When a single wavelength is used, the machine can be optimized to get the most from that laser module. This ranges from the best level of energy to the optimal lifespan of the module.

This becomes a problem when combining different modules. The manufacture can optimize for one module and have to work with what ever they can get from the other modules. Depending on the manufacturer, you can make the general assumption that you will get a better lifespan from a single wavelength unit.

The last point I want to mention here is overlooked by many equipment buyers, but has a huge influence every time you use your machine. The protective eye-wear for triple wavelength machines have to block a wide range of wavelengths to protect your eyes. The current standard for triple wavelength machines is glasses that block 600 nm to 1200 nm. This blocks almost half of the visible light spectrum.

If you use a single wavelength unit at 808nm, the glasses will usually block between 790 nm and 830 nm. This means that much more light come through the glasses, and you will see a lot better what you’re doing.

As simple as this may sound, take into account that the majority of laser owners/operators are over 35 years of age. At some point, the ability to see what you’re doing, becomes a real concern.

Training.

When you buy your Theia808 from us, you get the best training money can buy. You are enrolled for the LaserCollege Avant-garde Laser Therapist Course. This is the most complete aesthetic laser therapist course available. You can read more about this course at https://www.lasercollege.org/avant-garde-laser-course/ This training contains all you need to be registered as Laser Safety Officer for your new Theia808.

Your LaserCollege certificate is accredited in 136 countries. This training cost you R23346 if you enrol for the course only. With the Theia808 you get it FREE.

We spend 3 days with you at your location, doing practical training with you in your clinic when your new Theia808 is delivered. We come to you, install your Theia808 according to manufacturer’s instructions, and spend 3 full days on-site with you to ensure you are ready to get the best out of your Theia808.

Two Year Warranty

As long as your Theia808 is maintained according to manufacturer’s instructions, you will enjoy a two-year warrantee. This excludes consumables and periodic replaceable parts.

49 million 800 thousand pulses from your Theia 808nm is pure profit.

With 1 underarm treatment per week day, your Theia808 is fully paid in 3 years. 1 underarm treatment per week day is equivalent to 7 lower leg treatments for women per month or 5 back treatments for men per month*.

It means that the Theia 808mn needs less than 200 000 (two hundred thousand) pulses to pay for itself. The expected lifetime of your Theia 808nm is 50 000 000 (50 million pulses).

*This is based on average hair removal prices for South Africa.

    Painless Hair Removal

    The Theia has both ‘painless hair removal’-mode and ‘classic step’-mode options.

    This means that you as therapist has the control to give your client the most convenient, yet effective treatment possible.

    Painless hair removal refers to the capability of the machine to flashes up to 10 time per second. The technique used for this type of treatment is to lower the energy (fluence) of the treatment while increasing the rate at which the laser flashes per second. The therapist will then ‘glide’ the handpiece repeatedly over a predefined area, most often 10 cm2, over a fixed period of time, like 1 minute.

    With this technique you do get inferior results compared to the classical step technique. But, the benefit is that it is less painful for your client. This is a suitable technique for dark hair during the first two or three treatments of a treatment series.

    The step technique is when the therapist place the handpiece on one spot, pulse, and then move the handpiece to the next spot. This technique allows for superior results.

    For the best results with the most client comfort, a therapist usually start a treatment series with the glide (painless) technique and then switch over to the step technique later in the treatment series.

    The Theia808 allows you to utilize both of these technique during your treatments to achieve the best possible results.

      FAQ

      What else can I do with the Theia 808nm apart from hair removal?

      The Theia 808nm is specially designed for hair removal. It’s only the top brands that are on the same technical and performance level. Thus, you will get superior hair removal results with this machine.

      Is there still money in laser hair removal?

      According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, laser hair removal is among the top 5 most-sought non-surgical treatments that include chemical peels, non-surgical fat reduction, Botulinum Toxin, and Hyaluronic Acid.

      Yes, the laser hair removal business is strong.

      How am I supposed to make the investment for this machine and then build a business that has to compete against an army of clinics using machines that cost a fifth of what I’ve paid?

      Around 2012 when the low-end machines started to become more common we had the same fear. How will any reputable machine manufacturer survive this, and how will a clinic that paid $80000 for their high-end machine stay in business? Things have changed. Yet, it was not the end of the world as was feared.

      What happened was that the influx of low-end equipment made laser treatments common and mainstream. It didn’t spoil the market, it enhanced it. This caused the magazines and blogs to take interest and consumer education become much better.

      A real surprising trend emerged. The low-end clinics introduced laser therapy to a mass market. A part of this mass market were disappointed with either the results or the clinic and started to move upwards to high-end clinics. This created a larger market for the high-end clinics then there were originally.

      With the low-end clinics, one of two things happen.

      Most of the time, they have to close down. This happens about 2 years after they started. At this point they developed a reputation as not worth going to, and the moment something expensive needs to be repaired or replaced on the equipment, they simply cannot afford it. Some manage to go back to low-tech beauty treatments, but most have to close their doors. Have they spoiled the market? No. They have introduced laser treatments to some people who would not otherwise have become laser treatment clients. The sincere clients move on to other laser clinics after they’ve educated themselves.

      The second thing that happen to a small part of low-end laser buyers is that they realize that there is good business in this industry and then start to educated themselves, and eventually upgrade their equipment.

      Thus, no. You do not compete against an army of clinics using low-end equipment. These clinics have become an important source of clients to the “aesthetic eco-system”.

      Getting an in-depth scientific training from the start, combined with high-end, high-quality equipment, puts you light years ahead when you invest in you Theia 808nm.

      And if you’re not a first time buyer, you know what we’re talking about. Because it is not pure luck that you’re in a position to invest in another high-end machine. Your hard work made it possible.

      Why should I buy a machine from you when it takes Google 20 seconds to give me a list as long as my arm of manufacturers that sell exactly the same machine?

      This is a very good question, which contains a couple of issues.

      Let us start with the remark that you see various manufactures that produce the same machine.

      One of the reasons for this observation is, what sits in the box is not the same in every box. The outside cover (box) of the machine can very easily be duplicated. Or, even easier, the different manufactures can buy it from one central supplier. However, it is for each manufacture to build the inside that goes into the box.

      The only way that we or anyone knows what is inside the box is to ask the manufacture if they have a valid CE certificate, there are different types of CE certificates, and you need to know which CE certificates to ask for.

      Next, this certificates needs to be verified, unfortunately there are many fake CE certificates and declarations doing the rounds in China. And once this has been done, we need to follow another procedure to get sufficient assurance from the manufacture that each machine that is sent to us is manufactured and tested according to the CE specifications they received the CE certificate for.

      All the equipment we distribute has a directive 93/42/EEC certificate and are now governed by regulation 2017/745. We verified each certificate before we even started testing the equipment ourselves. This is the same certification all the expensive American and classic European brands have.

      Therefore, you can have two identical looking machines that will be technical opposites. But, this is not the end of it. Some manufactures will simply provide you with a fake certificates. It is up to you to verify the certificate.

      Some manufactures will actually get a valid certificate, but will then produce inexpensive versions of the machine. These versions are not fulfilling the technical requirements, however on paper it seems fine. The problem with this is that most people only find out that they have bought something different from what they thought they bought once all payment has been made, and they received the machine.

      As with everything in life, you get what you pay for. You can get stupidly cheap machines in China, but you can also get incredibly advanced and high performing machines in China. The high performing machines from China also have a price tag associated with high quality, high performing equipment.


      When you buy from us, you have recourse under local law if we do not perform as we promised.

      But more important than that; we associate our good reputation and name to every product we sell. Before we tell you about the machine, we have tested and verified everything double.

      I thought that the LaserCollege was independent of manufactures. How can you provide independent and unbiased training and sell equipment?

      Our courses are scientifically correct and unbiased. The chance that you encounter any information on a specific machine that we sell during a course is minimal, and even then it may be to highlight a negative instead of a positive.

      We get continues requests from students to help them source equipment. Because of this, we’ve gone on a search for what we believe the most effective equipment are from a value for money perspective.

      We are fully aware that we stake our reputation, that took us many years to build-up, on the equipment we sell; and therefore do not market any machine we do not stand 200% behind.

      If your Theia 808nm does compare so well with the high-end machines you refer to, and has all the certifications you mention. Why is it not priced in the range of these machines?

      Very good question. The answer to this question consists of two parts.

      The first is; this is an introductory offer and the pricing will inevitably be adjusted.

      Secondly, we aim to provide our clients with the best value-for-money we can find. Depending on what you compare us with, this might be relatively expensive or relatively inexpensive.

      I can get much less expensive equipment that does the same. Why is your machine better?

      That is always a possibility. Experience taught us that on further investigation it is usually not the same. If pricing is your only criterion, we will probably not be the most interesting supplier. Given that, the value we offer you is in providing you with certainty.

      Certainty that the equipment can actually perform as we promise. Certainty that this is the best value for money equipment you will get. Certainty that you are trained way above industry norms and will have knowledge very few laser therapists have. Certainty that you will be in the best possible position to get the highest return on the investment that you’ve made. Certainty that you have technical support when it really matters. Certainty that you have someone to talk to, that knows what you’re talking about, and can help you with answers when you need them.

      Certainty that all regulations are complied with, and you will never have to worry about getting a letter from the authorities that can destroy your business in one moment.

      Why it's better to have a local distributor than to self import.

      Regulations

      We know the regulations governing high-tech equipment in the aesthetic industry in South Africa. All the equipment we distribute fulfil the required regulations and licensing requirements.

      We assist you with your user licensing applications where relevant.

      What can happen to an illegally imported machine in South Africa?

      The worst case scenario is that your machine is confiscated, and you have to pay for the recycling of the machine.

      When SAHPRA learns that you have imported a machine without the necessary licensing, they will first give you the opportunity to retroactively rectify the situation. If this is not possible, they may request that you voluntarily surrender the equipment.

      If you cannot come to an agreement with SAHPRA the next step will be for them to get an interdict to confiscate your equipment.

      SAHPRA usually only inspect on request of third parties. This means that if a competing clinic makes a claim with SAHPRA that you’re not operating in accordance with current laws and regulations, SAHPRA is forced by law to investigate.
      This has become the easiest way to get rid of a competing clinic. Since 8 out of 10 Chinese manufacturers do not have the required CE certification to sell their equipment in South Africa, the chance of retroactively rectify the situation is very small.

      Your insurance doesn't have to pay.

      You can only insure legal equipment. If it comes to the attention of your insurer that you have an illegal machine on your insurance, the insurance policy becomes null and void.

      Worse. You cannot insure against malpractice, and you are therefore by default at fault.

      Legal recourse

      You have recourse under local law.
      To enforce international law is extremely complex and expensive. To do it in a country known NOT to be overly enthusiastic to comply with international law is worse.

      Value for your money

      You get to learn from someone how to get the most out of your machine. How to adjust parameters to deal with challenges.

      It takes about 8 treatment sessions for the average client, with 6 to 8 weeks between sessions. This is a journey of longer than a year, you will share with your client before you can judge success or failure.

      The most common pattern we see with people who import their own equipment is that they will find clients, do treatments as the user manual says, and the clients will love them for the first two sessions. Session three and four are usually a struggle since the results are not the same as the first two, and then the BOM hits. By session 5 all the hairs are back and gone are the clients.

      At this point, you have a choice between closing down or investing in training and probably replacement of the machine.

      When you buy your equipment through us, you will never have to deal with this evil, stressful cycle. We make sure you are ready from day one, and you have access to us for advice and assistance when you need it most.

      Maintenance and technical support

      This is certainly something most people underestimate when they import their own equipment.

      We keep stock of all the important parts needed to keep your machine in working order. More than that, we keep a loan unit in stock. If your machine cannot be repaired with in 72 hours, we provide you with another machine to keep your business going while we get your machine back in order.

      The only way you can do it when you import a machine yourself is to buy two machines. And even then you are not fully guaranteed of having no technical problems. If you have to deal with a factory in China in need, you will pay a lot more than necessary, and you may deal with waiting periods of up to a month. This can mean the end of your clinic.

      You're not isolated

      One of the biggest issues clinic owners face is a feeling of isolation. When you deal with us, you always have a place where there are people that know what you mean and can help you find solutions for your problems.

      Training

      LaserCollege is known for the best training money can buy. The LaserCollege course you get as part of this purchase is unbiased, and you learn about the pro’s and con’s of each technology and machine.

      You get in-depth scientific training as well as practical training far beyond the industry norm.

      Are you ready to move your business to the next level.

        P.S.:

        How a fibre coupled diode laser compares with a handpiece housed diode laser.

        Fibre coupled diode laser Handpiece housed diode laser
        Light, easy to work with, anti-fatigue handpiece. The average handpiece of a fibre coupled diode laser weighs between 200 gram and 300 gram. It is also quite small, that makes it easy to see where you're treating.
        Heavy and bulky handpiece. The average handpiece of a handpiece house diode laser weighs between 600 gram and 950 gram. It is quite large and makes it difficult to see where you're treating.
        Extreme long lifespan. This comes because the diodes are housed in the body of the machine and the engineers have enough space to create the perfect environment to optimize the diodes. You also do not have the risk of damage to the diodes if the handpiece falls by accident. The lifespan of a fibre coupled machine is 3 to 5 times longer than a handpiece housed machine.
        Limited lifespan. This comes because the diodes are housed in the handpiece and the engineers have to work with very limited resources to try and create as good an environment as possible for the diodes. You also have the risk of damage to the diodes if the handpiece falls by accident.
        Optimal skin cooling. The cooling in the handpiece is exclusive for skin cooling.
        Limited skin cooling. The cooling in the handpiece is mainly for cooling of the diodes. Skin cooling is in most cases limited to marketing and very little skin protection.
        Uniform energy distribution. Fibre coupled diode lasers are designed with a uniform energy distribution at a small divergence angle for more gentle and effective depilation.
        Distorted energy distribution. Handpiece housed diode lasers simply do not have the space available to use fibre optics to create the most optimal laser beam.
        Expected lifespan of 50 million (50 000 000) pulses.
        Expected lifespan of 15 million (15 000 000) pulses.
