Did you get tired of tweezing, shaving or waxing your unwanted hairs? Are you looking for a permanent solution by which you can get rid of these unwanted hairs forever? Then Laser hair removal is going to be a perfect solution for you.

It is fast and easier than any other hair removal techniques. It requires three to five sessions in average to lead in to permanent hair loss.
There are various kinds of lasers used in skin surgery according to the amount and wavelength needed for the treatment. Laser hair removal treatments are done with five basic systems.

What is Alexandrite Laser?
Alexandrite laser is one of the most popular methods used in laser hair removal. It is a red light laser where alexandrite crystals are the source of the medium. It produces a wavelength of 755nm and is available in Q-switched mode where it can produce high intensity beam in very short pulses. This laser is used in various skin disorder treatments such as vascular lesions, tattoo removal, pigmented lesions and hair removal. The popularity of the Alexandrite method has increased especially because of its range of action. It can work on a much larger surface area than the other laser hair removal methods. It enables the patient to have the result of permanent hair removal solution in fewer sittings which is a quite important thing to consider for those who remain in tight schedule.
How Does It Work?
The working procedure of Alexandrite laser is that when it is applied on any area, heat energy is created from the light emitted from the laser to damage the specific spot. A tissue can be destructed very precisely but its surrounding area will remain undamaged through the application of this laser beam.
Alexandrite laser is a recommended method for light colored hair on white skin. It can also be used on darker skin but there will be a risk of side effect. Tanned or dark skinned patient may suffer from change in skin colors which may appear in a form of white patches. This may cause if the laser beam destroys the melanin in the hair follicle. Patient may need contact cooling to avoid the pain during the treatment. Some may face redness, itching or swelling immediately after the procedure which may last for a few days. Though the side effect are quite minor ones but still, it is really important for the doctor and the laser operator to select the right laser method for the patient.
