Disclaimer:  Please contact Dornier to double check settings, and note that this laser is primarily used for veins.  Hair removal is something that this laser can do, but the results will vary.  Dornier themselves told me that in the US, this laser is very rarely used for hair removal and they don't even formally train US physicians to use it for hair removal.  Medical laser setting should only be changed by qualified medical personnel.  Note that the original file was updated in the year 2000.  Anything below this line came directly from Dornier.
