Diode Laser Hair Removal: Exploring the Diverse World of Laser Technology

by Clinic Dermatech India's Best Skin & Hair Clinic

Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic treatment involving lasers to remove unwanted hair. This treatment is highly effective and can provide long-lasting results. Let’s discuss the different types of lasers used in laser hair removal and how they work.

1.     Alexandrite laser

The Alexandrite laser is a highly effective laser used in laser hair removal. It emits a wavelength of 755 nanometers, which is highly absorbed by melanin, the pigment that gives color to our hair and skin. This laser can be used on various skin types but is most effective on individuals with fair to medium skin tones. Alexandrite lasers are fast and efficient, making them popular for large areas like legs, arms, and back.

2.     Diode laser

The Diode laser hair removal is another highly effective laser used in laser hair removal. It emits a wavelength of 800 to 810 nanometers, highly absorbed by melanin. The Diode laser hair removal is highly effective on individuals with fair to medium skin tones and is commonly used on the face, underarms, bikini line, and legs. The Diode laser is also highly effective in treating ingrown hairs.

3.     Nd: YAG laser

The Nd: YAG laser is a versatile laser for hair removal. It emits a wavelength of 1064 nanometers, which makes it highly effective on all skin types, including dark skin. The Nd: YAG laser can also be used on individuals with light hair, making it an excellent option for individuals who don't respond well to other lasers. This laser is commonly used on the face, underarms, bikini line, and legs.

4.     Ruby laser

The Ruby laser is one of the first lasers used in laser hair removal. It emits a wavelength of 694 nanometers, which makes it highly effective on individuals with fair skin and dark hair. The Ruby laser is not commonly used today, as it is less effective on individuals with darker skin tones. However, it can still be used on certain individuals with fair skin and dark hair.

5.     IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a light-based technology used in laser hair removal. Unlike traditional lasers, which emit a single wavelength of light, IPL emits multiple wavelengths of light. This makes it highly effective on various skin tones and hair colors. IPL can be used on the face, underarms, bikini line, and legs. It is also highly effective in treating other skin conditions like rosacea, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.

How do lasers work in laser hair removal?

Lasers used in laser hair removal work by emitting a highly concentrated beam of light absorbed by the pigment in our hair follicles. The light energy is converted into heat, which damages the hair follicle and prevents further hair growth. The laser only targets the hair follicle and doesn't damage the surrounding skin.

Before the treatment, a cooling gel is applied to the skin to help protect it from the laser's heat. The laser is then moved over the area to be treated, and the hair follicle absorbs the energy. The treated hair will fall out over the next few days or weeks, leaving the skin smooth and hair-free.

The number of treatments required for laser hair removal varies depending on the individual's hair color, skin tone, and the area being treated. Most individuals require between six and eight treatments to achieve the desired results.

Laser hair removal is a highly effective and popular cosmetic treatment that uses lasers to remove unwanted hair. The different types of lasers used in laser hair removal include the Alexandrite laser, Diode laser, Nd: YAG laser, Ruby laser, and IPL Regenerate response. The good thing is that all of them are offered at Clinic Dermatech.
