o Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal:

The Alexandrite laser works with laser waves at a wavelength of 755 nanometers. This wavelength is effective in removing melanin hair growth.

Usability: The Alexandrite laser is suitable for hair removal on skin types I-IV (from very light to slightly dark skin) and is particularly effective for people with dark hair and fair skin .

Application: It can be used in all areas of the body, with better effectiveness in the areas with the most intense hair growth.

o Diode Laser Hair Removal:

The Diode Laser works with laser waves at the wavelength of 808 nanometers. This length is deeper and can penetrate the skin better, making it more suitable for darker skin tones.

Usability: The Diode Laser is suitable for hair removal on skin types I-VI (from very light to very dark skin) and can be used for various hair colors.

Application: It is ideal for removing fine and light-colored hair - not white - in areas such as the face and bikini area, but it is also suitable for the rest of the body.

Each type of hair removal laser has its advantages and disadvantages, and the appropriate choice depends on the skin type and hair characteristics of each individual. It is necessary to consult a specialist to determine the most suitable solution for you and to ensure safe and effective hair removal.

Laser Hair Removal - understanding the differences and effectiveness of the IPL vs Laser Hair Removal system. With both IPL (intense pulsed light) and laser hair removal there is a high volume of unwanted hair that may not grow back for a long time. The two methods are somewhat comparable, although there is at least one clear difference: Laser hair removal uses an actual laser while IPL does not.

As the name suggests, IPL uses a light-based device, instead of destroying the hair follicles. Many clinics offer IPL laser hair removal, but it is not as effective for hair removal as the laser technology available . Alexandrite laser hair removal devices (755 nm) are recognized worldwide as one of the most effective hair removal devices. The Candela alexandrite laser is highly effective, due to both the built-in cooling equipment and a series of studies conducted on a large sample of people who underwent a series of treatments with this machine.

The cooling equipment allows the laser to be safely used on darker skin complexions other than Caucasian skin types. After a decade of research into the effect of IPL devices, it is now known that IPL is not as accurate as laser hair removal. There are numerous studies that all come to the same conclusion about laser vs. IPL. In other words, IPL hair removal is not as effective as Alexandrite laser hair removal.

The difference between true laser technology and IPL is not only the results but mainly the wavelength. IPL hair removal uses a range of different wavelengths of light. Only some of these wavelengths will be ideal for hair removal, but some will not be. So while IPL lasers may be cheaper per session, the results are not as good because a percentage of your treatment will be ineffective, leading to more treatments and costs in the long run. Unlike the IPL laser, the Alexandrite laser uses a single, precise wavelength beam of light, targeting the melanin in the hair follicle specifically, so there is no 'luck' involved.

This very wavelength results in a more effective treatment than IPL hair removal and consequently fewer treatments in the long term. It is also worth noting that for truly the most effective laser hair removal, one or two sessions per year may be needed for maintaining your results. But when we compare this to daily waxing, plucking and shaving, not to mention ingrown hair treatment, laser hair removal is the clear winner, both for effectiveness and price.

Only doctor and beauty center can buy alexandrite laser, anyone can buy IPL. So we at KRL use the gold standard in laser hair removal.
