WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser to remove unwanted hair.
The laser used emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. Once the laser finds the hair follicle, it turns the light energy into heat, killing the hair root. The trauma done delays future hair growth.
WHO IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL FOR?
Laser hair removal is for anyone who is looking to get rid of unwanted hair! The procedure can be done on any part of the body! Some of the most common areas are the legs, arms, underarms, Brazilian, back, chest, and face. The only areas we cannot treat are the eyelids and the areas around them, and we also can’t treat areas that have tattoos.
In order for laser hair removal to work properly, the hair must have a pigment. This is because the pigment in the hair is what absorbs the laser and kills the hair follicle. With that being said, laser hair removal is most effective on those who have dark pigmented hair. It is less effective on hairs that don’t absorb light, such as blonde and white hair. However, laser hair removal is effective for all skin types!
No matter your skin type, we have a solution for you!
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LASERS
Believe it or not, there are a variety of lasers that are used to reduce hair. The top three lasers for hair removal are the following:
- 755 nm Alexandrite laser
- 805 nm or 810 nm Diode laser
- 1064 nm Nd: Yag laser
These are all different wavelengths, so it is important to know which is the best one for your skin type.
755 NM ALEXANDRITE LASER
The Alexandrite laser is extremely effective because it absorbs a lot of melanin (pigment)! This laser is best for skin types 1, 2, and 3.
805 NM OR 810 NM DIODE LASER
The Diode laser absorbs melanin slightly less than the Alexandrite laser. Because of this, the Diode laser is great for all skin types!
1064 NM ND: YAG
The 1064 nm ND: Yag is the gold standard of all lasers because it is the safest! This laser is extremely effective and can be done on all skin types! It is also the best laser for skin types 4, 5, and 6.
