Our clinic is equipped with an Arion Alexandrite Laser, which is a sophisticated piece of equipment for permanent hair removal.
An Alexandrite Laser is a type of laser that emits high energy light through an alexandrite crystal. As the light passes through the alexandrite crystal, a beam of light 755 nm long is produced. It is considered a red light laser. Alexandrite Lasers can be set on Q-switching mode, which causes the laser to produce a high-energy beam of light in short pulses. This is a feature that makes it particularly effective for hair removal. The wavelength of light emitted from the alexandrite laser is easily absorbed by the melanin (pigment cells) in your hair, which causes those cells to be heated and ultimately destroyed. It is perfect for removing large swathes of hair in fewer sessions.
For patients interested in treating larger body areas (such as the stomach, chest, back, shoulders, or legs), it’s often recommended to use an alexandrite laser. It is considered one of the most efficient types of laser for use with many hair and skin types, as the laser does not affect darker skin types as much as other lasers. As with all other lasers, it is best with white and very light skin, and has proven most effective with the fine, thin hairs that many of the other types of laser cannot eliminate.
The Arion alexandrite laser used in our clinic is one of the fastest and most powerful lasers of its type, which offers efficient, precise high speed treatment. It is an extremely versatile system that can be adjusted according to hair and skin type while penetrating deeply to destroy hair follicles, making it especially suitable for gentle permanent hair removal on light and darker skin types. It is especially good for hair removal on larger body areas among patients who are of light-to-olive complexion. Thanks to its advanced Burst mode of operation and air cooling it is highly effective while at the same time protecting the skin by maintaining the skin temperature at safe levels.
