While lasers have grown to be the universal go-to technology for hair reduction, it is not unusual to come across instances of painful sessions, skin burns, or disappointing results. Technique matters, without a doubt. However, it is just as important to start by selecting the optimal laser technology for every individual.
At the heart of the Laser Luxe experience is the expertise of our dermatologist-therapist teams. They work closely with every customer to deliver a customized treatment crafted around the individual’s hair and skin type, using the latest technologies, systems, and devices. So, although all Laser Luxe is based on three major laser platforms – Alexandrite, Diode, and Nd: Yag – no two treatments are quite the same.
Now, why do we have three different laser platforms? To provide the most effective and comfortable experience for every skin and hair type. Each of the different types of laser has a specific range of utility, depending on its wavelength and penetration.
For instance, the diode laser performs well on coarse, dark hair and is a good choice for back or bikini hair. It operates at a wavelength that allows deeper penetration into the skin, avoiding the melanin in the epidermis and therefore targeting the hair follicle directly.
The Alexandrite laser has a shorter wavelength than the Diode and Nd: Yag lasers, and has been used effectively for laser hair removal treatment on skin types I-IV, meaning fair and light brown skin types. The shorter wavelength makes the treatment more effective on lighter skins and not suitable for darker skins.
The Nd: Yag long pulse laser can be used safely on all skin types – type I to VI. Most notably, it is highly effective on dark or tanned skin with darker hair but is of limited use on light or fine hair. Fast repetition rates and large coverage areas allow large areas of the body to be treated quickly. Nd: YAG technology can be used to eliminate unwanted hair on almost any part of the body.
While the technology is offered by several device makers, at Charne we have opted for the GentleYAG Pro from Syneron Candela for its effectiveness and its ability to deliver an unmatched laser experience in every way. It’s painless, faster, safe, and effective!
How Gentle: YAG Pro Laser works
First, a quick review of how laser hair reduction works. The root of every shaft of hair sits in a tiny sack called the hair follicle. Laser hair removal damages this hair follicle, eliminating hair growth.
The laser emits a beam of light that travels through the skin to the hair follicle below. The hair follicle absorbs this light energy which gets transformed into heat, destroying both, hair shaft and follicle.
