The 755nm Alexandrite laser utilized at Laser Affair precisely targets the melanin (color) in the hair shaft, inflicting injury to the cells lining the hair follicle, inhibiting future growth, while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. Candela’s Alexandrite is considered the gold standard amongst the industry as the most effective laser for hair reduction for light to medium skin types. For those with darker skin types, the 1064 ND:Yag is a safer laser.
Some facilities put a “private label” on their laser. Insist on knowing the laser manufacturer and wavelength. Be aware if this information is unknown. Run as fast as you can if the technician doesn’t know. (A good test of their knowledge)
** Although some lasers can safely treat all skin types, this does not ensure you will achieve maximum results; therefore, it is imperative to be assessed by our Laser Specialist.
