Types of lasers used for hair removal
At Getskin Medical Aesthetic Center and SPa we use all three types of lasers, The Alexandrite, Nd:YAG, and Diode lasers that are used for hair removal and each has its own unique properties and characteristics:
Alexandrite Laser: This type of laser has a high-energy wavelength that is well absorbed by melanin (pigment in hair). It is best for individuals with lighter skin and dark hair and is often used for larger areas, such as legs, arms, and back.
Nd:YAG Laser: This laser has a longer wavelength, making it ideal for individuals with darker skin tones. It can penetrate deeper into the skin to target hair follicles and is often used in conjunction with the Alexandrite laser to achieve optimal results.
Diode Laser: Diode laser hair removal is versatile and can be used on individuals with a wide range of skin tones. It has a longer wavelength than the Alexandrite laser and is often used for smaller areas, such as the upper lip, chin, and underarms.
It is important to consult with a qualified and experienced professional to determine which type of laser is best for your individual hair removal needs, as the right laser type will depend on several factors, including skin tone, hair color, and the size of the area to be treated.
How to prepare for the laser hair removal?
Preparing for laser hair removal requires taking certain steps to ensure that the treatment is as safe and effective as possible. Here are some tips for preparing for laser hair removal:
Avoid sun exposure: It is important to avoid excessive sun exposure for at least 4 weeks prior to the treatment. Sunburn or tan can affect the effectiveness of the laser and increase the risk of complications.
Shave the treatment area: It is recommended to shave the area to be treated a day or two before the appointment. This helps to remove any surface hair and allows the laser to penetrate the skin more effectively.
Avoid waxing or plucking: It is important to avoid waxing or plucking hair in the treatment area for at least 4 weeks before the appointment. These methods can remove the hair follicles, which the laser needs to target.
Avoid using certain skincare products: Certain skincare products, such as exfoliating agents and retinoids, can increase sensitivity in the skin and should be avoided before the treatment.
Wear appropriate clothing: Wear loose, comfortable clothing to the appointment and avoid tight clothing that can irritate the skin after the treatment.
It is important to follow your or your practitioner's instructions and to discuss any concerns or questions you may have prior to the treatment. Preparing for laser hair removal can help to ensure that the treatment is as safe and effective as possible.
How many treatments do I need?
Several variables, including the size of the treatment area, the color and coarseness of the hair, the person's skin type, and the type of laser being used, will affect how many laser hair removal sessions are required.
Typically, most people will require between 4 and 8 sessions to achieve optimal results. However, some people may require more or fewer sessions depending on their specific hair removal needs. The laser hair removal process works by damaging the hair follicle, which prevents the hair from growing back. With each subsequent treatment, the hair follicles become weaker, and the hair growth becomes less dense.
It is significant to remember that laser hair removal is a continuing process, and upkeep sessions might be required to keep the hair under control. Additionally, new hair growth may take place over time, so touch-up procedures are frequently required to keep the treated area smooth and hair-free.
It is always best to discuss your individual hair removal needs and goals with a qualified and experienced practitioner, who can provide you with a customized treatment plan and help you determine how many laser hair removal sessions may be necessary for you.
