Laser Hair Removal

1064nm/Nd YAG Laser for Hair Removal

Apart from vein removal Nd YAG 1064nm laser is used for hair removal, in particular on darker skin types. The 1064nm wavelength has only a small attraction to melanin, but a high affinity for haemoglobin. This makes it an ideal laser for the treatment of veins/hair on all skin types from fair to dark.

How does laser hair removal work?

The laser travels through the skin to the hair follicle, attracted to the hair follicle by the pigment in the hair. This damages and weakens the hair follicle.
