Combined with the right cooling system, its high absorbance for melanin and the correct pulse duration makes it an efficacious technology for permanent hair reduction.
The Alexandrite laser has been used by medical professionals since 1997 and is now one of the most widely used types of laser technology in the aesthetic medicine field.
Based on the principle of selective photothermolysis, the Alexandrite’s 755 nm wavelength is intensely absorbed by melanin. When used with a short pulse duration, it becomes the reference in efficacy and produce optimal destruction of the targeted tissue while avoiding heat dissipation that can damage the surrounding tissues.
However short pulse of high laser energy can damage the epidermis, therefore to be able to use the Alexandrite laser safely, the laser system must be equipped with an effectual cooling technology that protect the epidermis and reduces patient discomfort.
The Alexandrite laser is a technology that has proven to provide permanent hair reduction and is efficacious for pigmented lesion removal.
