7 Things You Need to Know about Laser Hair Removal
1) The technology inside each laser hair removal machine is different.
Different technology produces different results. It is one of the reasons we all have our favourite brands of smartphones. It is the same with laser hair removal technology — the technology makes all the difference.
However, instead of debating with friends whether the iPhone is better than the Samsung smartphone, with laser technology, we can read scientific papers showing that the Nd:YAG 1064nm laser technology provides the safest and most effective results for laser hair removal.
The Nd: YAG laser technology works like any other laser, but the difference is that the Nd:YAG 1064nm produces a high-intensity beam in short pulses "increasing reach and overall effectiveness" in hair removal on all skin types.
Cutera, the global leader in laser equipment, uses the scientifically proven technology in their Cutera laser hair removal systems.
2) The Nd:YAG 1064nm technology used by Cutera is FDA indicated for laser hair removal.
Cutera obtained FDA approval for the use of Nd:YAG 1064nm laser technology, and Cutera is one of the select few companies using FDA-approved laser hair removal technology. The Nd:YAG 1064nm is the cutting edge of technology in the laser hair removal industry
The technology has been tested and proven to optimize hair removal while protecting the epidermis from damage.
The method utilizes the latest technology today for getting rid of hair on the face, underarms, neck, chest, back, bikini line and legs.
Please Note: We recommend that people with diabetes or women who are pregnant avoid laser treatments.
3) The Nd:YAG 1064nm works well for all skin types.
The Nd:YAG technology works well on all skin types including tanned and darker skin, as well as, light skin. You see results regardless of your skin colouring. Not all laser hair removal technology can provide these results. Before the Nd:YAG technology, tanned or darker skin people would be burned by the older technology so you could not treat darker skinned people.
The Nd: YAG laser gets rid of dark hair (i.e. light brown, brown, and black) well but may be less effective in getting rid of light-coloured hair (i.e. blonde, red, or grey hair). For lighter hair, Laser Plus Clinic has other hair removal technologies.
4) Fewer treatments needed which saves time and money.
Nd:YAG laser hair removal technology is effective, the average number of treatments for facial hair is 8 - 10 and for body hair, the average is 6 - 8 treatments. Each person is unique in their hair-growth phases and therefore, response to laser hair removal treatment, and some people need fewer treatments than others.
The good news is that Nd:YAG technology produces faster results than other laser hair removal technologies.
Numerous studies have proven that the Nd:YAG lasers can permanently reduce hair growth by 80 - 85% in the treated areas.
5) Minimal discomfort during hair removal treatment.
Nd:YAG laser technology removes hair mostly discomfort-free. Some people can feel a small pinprick feeling during their treatment.
6) Customization of Cutera's settings to match you.
The Cutera CoolGlide XEO stands out for being highly customizable. The laser machine comes with numerous configuration options which allow for a customized treatment for you.
7) Certified Training and Experience matters.
Having the latest laser hair removal technology isn’t enough. You need to receive treatment from skilled and experienced laser hair removal experts.
