What is Laser Hair Removal?

Are you exhausted from shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair? Laser hair removal may be an option worth considering because it is a non-surgical medical procedure that uses a concentrated light beam to remove unwanted hair from the roots. Though laser hair removal is a painless procedure, it is not a permanent hair removal solution as it only delays hair growth.

Laser Hair Removal Techniques:

Laser laser hair removal has been widely used nowadays, which helps remove the hair for a long time. But the techniques used are usually based on what is your skin tone and hair like?. Here are the five popular methods used for laser hair removal:

Alexandrite laser hair removal: It is one of the popular methods commonly used for light skin tone, and the laser's wavelength is shorter and is less painful as it cannot penetrate the skin. Even if the result is not permanent, it is much more lasting than other methods such as waxing, shaving or threading.

Diode laser treatments: It uses a longer wavelength for deeper penetration into the skin. This technique is most effective on medium-dark skin tones with courser hair. It is a painless procedure & compared to other methods; it requires fewer sessions to complete.

Ruby laser: It is the oldest method of hair removal technique, which became obsolete because the results are slower than the new techniques. It is not effective on darker and courser hair but is better for lighter, finer hair and light skin.

Nd and LP Nd: It is a heavy-duty laser that works best on thicker and courser hair and is also effective on individuals with darker skin tone & it’s not practical on lighter skin and more delicate hair. This method uses the longest wavelength, which can be slightly uncomfortable.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light): It is technically not a laser; it is just an intense pulsed light helpful in damaging the hair follicles, similar to the other laser methods.
