Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal: Everything you need to know
If you're looking into hair removal methods, it's important to consider all of your options. No doubt

you’ve done your research and determined that laser hair removal is your best pick. But what is the
difference between the lasers that are on the market? Alexandrite lasers are powerful equipment and
should only be used by a trained practitioner Only.

Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal Efficacy Study
126 patients went through a 15 month period of treatment with pulsed Alexandrite technology.  Time between sessions during the treatment ranged from 4 weeks to 3 1/2 months.The results of the study showed an average drop in hair amount of greater than 88%​ 3 months after the final treatment.


Advantages of the Alexandrite Laser
It is considered the most efficient laser for use with all hair and skin types, it is best with white and very light skin, and has proven most effective with the fine, thin hairs that many of the other types of laser cannot eliminate.
Advantages of the Yag Laser
It is considered the most efficient laser which have affect on darker skin types in the market, at Modern Clinic we can treat all types of skin and hair.  

What is the difference between Laser and IPL/VPL with regards to their use in hair reduction treatments?
We are aware that there is some confusion for patients in understanding the difference between Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Variable Pulsed Light (VPL) treatments for hair reduction.
Both treatments have been available commercially since the mid 90’s. They involve producing light energy which is then absorbed into the dark pigment of the hair to ultimately cause damage to the hair follicle.  Hair growth is then reduced without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The main advantages of using Laser Hair Removal over IPL Hair Removal based technology for hair reduction are:
Laser technology is simply much more effective, and achieves substantially better results than IPL Hair Removal. The majority of patients experience permanent hair reduction after 6-12 sessions.*
IPL Hair Removal is a cheaper, less effective technology for reducing body hair.
Lasers are far more precise, and can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
Each laser pulse takes a fraction of a second and can treat several hairs at a time.
Laser hair removal can be used to treat larger body areas.
Laser settings can be adjusted to suit your specific skin tone and hair colour.
Lasers are safe for all skin colours, whereas IPL can cause burns on darker skin tones.
Results may vary from person to person. 


Laser Hair Removal
Laser machines produce a single wavelength of light (pure light consisting of one single colour and form), which has a very concentrated beam and specific target (the melanin in the hair follicle).
The type/colour of your hair and skin will determine the tuning settings of the machine and will be discussed with you during your consultation. Laser machines are tuned to emit the exact wavelength required to treat your hair.
IPL Hair Removal (very common & very cheap in the market)
IPL’s are NOT lasers. The machines produce a broad spectrum of wavelengths (like a light bulb) and cannot be focused to a concentrated beam. Because a range of different wavelengths are dispersed at a variety of depths and they are not that effective for hair reduction. A more shallow penetration in comparison to laser means that deeper, thicker hairs are not treated effectively.  In addition, some of the light can be absorbed into the surrounding tissue as well, leading to heating of the pigment in the skin.  This is why there is more of a risk of burns for a darker skin type.​​

Laser machines create more heat directed at the hair follicle than IPL systems, hence achieving better results. Because the heat is absorbed by the follicle, and not the skin, there is a decreased risk of burning when using Laser machines. This also makes Laser a safer option for darker skinned individuals.
