Laser Hair Removal Equipment- What to Expect

When researching laser hair removal, one of the most important things to consider is the quality of laser equipment and technicians performing the treatment. Is the laser equipment safe, FDA approved, and operated by trained and experienced laser professionals?

Dr. Douglas Halliday, founder and medical director of SkinLaze Laser Skin Spa in Fayetteville, NY, emphasizes: “The state of New York does not require any special training or medical background to operate a laser, so patients must be extremely careful in choosing an experienced laser team that is supervised by a qualified cosmetic surgeon.”

At Skin Laze Laser Skin Spa, our well-trained, licensed medical aestheticians use the highest quality lasers for our ExpressLaze℠ Laser Hair Removal System.

Each treatment is customized to provide optimal, safe laser hair removal results for every client, based on their skin type, hair color, and desired treatment area. Our experienced aesthetics staff use multiple FDA approved Candela and Cynosure Elite lasers, equipped with two different wavelength options (Alexandrite and YAG).

The laser itself targets unwanted hair from the follicle – the root of the hair underneath the skin’s surface. Once the laser’s light energy penetrates the skin and reaches the hair follicle, the laser energy is transferred into heat energy. The heat permanently alters the blood flow to the hair follicle, ceasing hair production all together which results in a smooth hair-free area over time.
This laser hair removal system is ideal for addressing unwanted hair on the lip, chin, bikini, under arms, legs, back, chest, and virtually any hair on both men and women.

The Alexandrite laser emits a short wavelength (755 nm), and is ideal for skin types I – III (Caucasian). It is adjustable and tunable to increase effectiveness and efficiency during hair removal treatment.

The YAG (Yttrium, Aluminum, Garnet) laser is versatile and has a longer wavelength (1064 nm) than the Alexandrite. The YAG is best used for skin types IV – VI (ethnic, darker skin), as it passes further down the skin’s surface during the treatment to avoid hyperpigmentation of the darker skin.

Another advantage of the ExpressLaze℠ Laser Hair Removal System at SkinLaze is the advanced cooling system used in conjunction with laser treatment. During the laser hair removal treatment, the laser apparatus expels cool air while going over the treated area. This safe cooling delivery system protects and soothes the skin from the heat of the laser. Unlike cooling plates and messy gels, the cooling delivery system provides consistent cooling, as it prevents burning, blistering, pigmentation, and compromised hair removal results.
