Nd:YAG Laser Hair Removal (XLASE)

Suitable for use in various areas on the body, Nd:YAG laser is a hair removal procedure that uses an intense beam of light to remove unwanted hair growth medically.

This safe treatment works well for individuals of any skin type (including tanned) to produce significant results with little to no downtime. 

 

Hair is present all over the body, but different areas can see different thicknesses. We all have our perception of what is desirable, and which places on the body we prefer not to have thicker, more noticeable hair. With an emission of wavelengths of 1064 nm, the Nd:YAG applicator penetrates light into tissue, reaching its maximum depth to target the hair follicles and destroy them.

 

In turn, this action inhibits or completely disables the follicle’s ability to produce new hair as rapidly as before treatment, slowing down the regrowth. A series of treatments are usually needed to achieve long-lasting results, with regular maintenance treatments recommended to ensure more permanent results.

 

Other skin components’ low absorption guarantees that the surrounding tissue on all skin types is not damaged and is incredibly efficient on black skin and hormone caused hairs. 

 

At Dr PJ Aesthetic Skin Clinic Nd:YAG Laser can restore any lost confidence by giving you soft, smooth, hair-free skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Long Pulse (Nd:YAG) Laser is the safest, most effective laser for any darker complexions. Even it effectively works equally well for all skin types, find that it works particularly well on Hispanic or Afro-Caribbean, Indian skin type. Compared to the other available hair removal lasers, Nd:YAG laser is more effective for dark, thick hairs. 

All of our hair removal lasers are virtually pain-free methods, and you are left with smooth silky-to-the-touch skin. You can expect to feel a slight stinging sensation at the start of the treatment, showing the laser has been activated. A series of impulses may cause a minor burning sensation as well as some prickling or tingling. Discomfort may be minimised by applying a topical anaesthetic or a cooling pack to the area being treated prior to treatment. The sensation has been described as being similar to that of an elastic band snapping against the skin. Most people do not require an anaesthetic ice-pack.

A few individuals have observed some pigment changes after a laser treatment procedure, causing either a darkening or lightening of the skin and not to be confused with scarring. Fortunately, such changes are typically resolved within a few weeks or months.

Within days you will notice that the number of hairs growing in a treated area has been diminished following each treatment and will be assessed by your expert therapist during your follow-up consultations. A course of 6-9 sessions is usually recommended and will accommodate your hair growth pattern, type and density.

The Nd:Yag laser is perfect for darker skin. Since our beam’s maximum spot size is 10mm, it is more suitable for a small area to be treated than other available laser hair removal. Also, it is the best choice for those people who suffer from ingrowing hairs. 

At Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic, we use the standard diagnostic screening questionnaire to appreciate your skin types. The following list shows the six categories of the Fitzpatrick scale

  • Type I – Always burns, never tans (pale white; blond or red hair; blue eyes; freckles)
  • Type II – Usually burns, tans minimally (white; fair; blond or red hair; blue, green, or hazel eyes)
  • Type III – Sometimes mild burn, tans uniformly (cream white; beige, fair with any hair or eye colour)
  • Type IV – Burns minimally, always tans well (moderate brown)
  • Type V – Very rarely burns, tans very easily (dark brown)
  • Type VI – Never burns, never tans (intensely pigmented dark brown to darkest brown)
