l  Diode Laser Hair Removal

Diode laser treatments are perfect for people with coarse hair and medium to dark pigments. This type of laser hair removal is very versatile and quite similar to the Alexandrite method. The Diode method is relatively painless and requires fewer sessions for completion. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved that may be used for laser hair reduction on darker skin tones the diode (808nm) laser systems. The Diode laser is a newer laser hair removal system, The Diode produces wavelengths that penetrate deep into the hair follicle. Deep laser penetration is safer on darker skin types because the energy produced by the laser is not able to concentrate where pigment resides in the skin.

IPL is often classified as a laser hair removal treatment, but it is not actually a laser. IPL is just a type of light. Intense pulsed light damages the hair follicles in a similar way to lasers, and IPL is highly customizable to the individual. The power levels can be adjusted to meet the individual’s skin tone and hair thickness needs. The treatment takes place over several sessions, but each person is different regarding the number of sessions they require.

-      Pros: Very common device found in almost every dermatology office. Removes freckles and brown spots. Inexpensive.

-      Cons: Does not use a laser beam and heat can damage other structures in the skin besides the hair follicle. Cannot be used on anyone tan or darker. Bulky handpiece with patchy results.

l  Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal

The Alexandrite method is one of the most popular types of laser hair removal and is ideal for lighter skin tones. It hurts less than some other types of lasers, but this is because the wavelength of the laser is shorter, meaning it doesn’t penetrate as deeply. This method may take more sessions to achieve permanent hair removal because of the shorter wavelengths. Even if laser hair removal is not permanent, it is much longer lasting than any other hair removal method.

-Pros: Ultra-efficient at removing hair. Rapid repitition rate with quick treatment times. Painless.

-Cons: Latest technology means more expensive.

l  Ruby Laser Hair Removal

The first method ever developed to remove hair was the Ruby laser, and has become quite obsolete as it tends to be slower and less effective than other methods. However, it is better for lighter, finer hair and light skin tones. The nice part about Ruby lasers is that they have been around long enough for there to be a lot of research conducted regarding the effectiveness of laser hair removal, how to improve the methodology, and how to lessen the side effects.

-Pros: Many decades of safety data.

-Cons: Can only be used on pale skin. Treatment time is very long so can only treat tiny areas. Inexpensive because device is older.



Does the Type of Laser Matter?

Yes, the type of laser matters. It influences your treatment’s effectiveness and your chance of experiencing side effects.

Fair-skinned people with darker hair can use an IPL device, Alexandrite laser, or a diode laser. People with darker complexions and darker hair can use Diode laser. People with lighter hair can use an Alexandrite. Short laser pulses are used to control unwanted tissue damage, and the laser’s energy is adjusted.


Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

Yes, laser hair removal can be permanent depending on which treatment you choose. Laser hair removal can permanently reduce the density of the hair or permanently remove unwanted hair. A reduction in hair density means some hair can regrow, and patients will need ongoing laser treatment. Permanent hair removal means no hair will grow back, and no ongoing therapy is needed.


What are the Pros of Laser Hair Removal?

Drastically reduced hair growth. Although most treatments don’t permanently remove hair, you will have to deal with less hair that is much finer as a result of treatment – and ongoing treatments ensure you will never have to shave or wax again. Patients have reported not seeing hair for months to even years, and the hair is ultimately lighter and less coarse.

There is no limit to where you can remove hair from. Because of the wide range of lasers and treatments available, you can remove hair from your legs, back, underarms, bikini line, stomach, face, or anywhere you want less hair. There is no higher risk of side effects with laser hair removal in sensitive areas like the bikini line or face than there is anywhere else.

The pain is very manageable. Depending on your hair type and where you are getting the treatment done on your body, a lot of people say laser hair removal feels like shaving or, in cases of coarse, darker hair, and waxing. Sensitive areas may be more painful, but it is a quick treatment that becomes less painful each session.
