Which Type of Laser is Best For Laser Hair Removal?


The type of laser that is best for you may depend on a few factors such as the treatment desired, skin colour and condition, and the number of sessions required. For example, Ruby lasers are less equipped to deal with hair removal than small surface blemishes because they do not penetrate deeply enough into the skin.

Therefore, the Nd:YAG laser is impressive for hair removal because it is able to achieve a much greater penetration into the skin than other lasers. The Nd:YAG is the latest innovation in laser technology and can offer double the penetration of other lasers.

Nd:YAG lasers can treat all skin types, and are effective for people who have tried other hair removal methods and have been left unsatisfied, or for those with darker skin tones. This is because softer baby hairs will be removed with lighter lasers, but thicker hair or hair on darker skin will need a deeper level of laser depth.

Alexandrite lasers are more commonly used for light facial treatments rather than hair removal. Diodes were most commonly used for laser hair removal, before the advent of the Nd:YAG laser. How effective the treatment is depends on several variables, but for hair removal we would recommend the Nd:YAG as the best type of laser for laser hair removal.
