Different Types of Laser Hair Removal

Choosing to give up all of the hassle and expense of laser hair removal is liberating. Laser hair removal can reduce or remove unwanted hair over a series of treatments designed to best match your skin tone, hair type, and even tolerance for discomfort. Because there are multiple types of laser technology available, meeting with an aesthetician for a consultation is the best way to learn which hair removal option is best for you. Here are some of the options you and your aesthetician may consider:
 

Nd:YAG – Laser Hair Removal

 
Laser hair removal is just one of the skin care concerns addressed by Nd:YAG laser technology. It’s also used for skin resurfacing and tattoo removal. Because the Nd: Yag technology has a weaker melanin absorption rate, and longer wavelengths, it is safe to use on dark skin tones.
 

Alexandrite – Quick Results

 
Alexandrite laser technology has a relatively short wavelength which allows it to work faster in treating hair follicles and it is more comfortable than Nd:Yag. Many of these lasers have cooling devices built into their equipment to help alleviate some of the pain that clients may experience. At Vasu Skin Solutions in Boulder, we use the Zimmer cooling device.
 

IPL – Achieve Custom Settings

 
Intense Pulsed Light or IPL treatments don’t use actual laser technology but it’s so similar, it’s often discussed along with other laser hair removal options. Laser light is directed to hair follicles. When the heat from the light damages the follicle, it interrupts hair regrowth. IPL treatments are temporary, however and your hair will grow back.
