Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal


Find Laser Hair Removal Clinics »

The Alexandrite laser hair removal system works in a similar way to the Ruby Laser hair removal system. The laser wavelength used in this system is 755nm, which is in the red-infrared part of the light spectrum. This laser wavelength, like the ruby laser, is absorbed mostly by the melanin and hair follicles rather than the surrounding tissues. The Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal system is very common and so you will probably see Alexandrite laser treatments offered in many laser hair removal clinics you look at. It is also the quickest of all the currently available laser treatments in the cosmetic hair removal market. The best results of the Alexandrite system are seen in those with light to olive skin types, particularly those with very light skin. Such systems can also be used on albino skin and skin with freckles, which many other laser hair removal systems would be ineffective on.
