Before use, you should carefully study the contraindications and consult a dermatologist. And only go to certified clinics and medical centers.
So, what is the difference between the two lasers.
1. Principle of operation
The alexandrite laser produces radiation energy that acts on melanin and destroys hair cells. The diode laser penetrates much deeper.
2. What hair removal is it intended for?
The Alexandrite laser is only effective for dark hair on white skin. It is categorically impossible to use it if the skin is dark, tanned, and also to sunbathe within two weeks after epilation. The diode laser also removes lighter and finer hair and can also be used on darker skin.
3. How is the procedure going
The alexandrite laser does not come into contact with the skin, the hair is removed by means of a flash, it is, as it were, burned out. The procedure is accompanied by a specific smell of burnt hair. In the case of a diode laser, epilation is carried out by a contact method, using a special gel that serves as a conductor.
4. Feelings during epilation
If you come across an ad in an advertisement that laser hair removal is completely painless, this is certainly not the case. Painful sensations depend largely on the area of exposure. For example, in the deep bikini area, they will be present. However, beauticians advise against using pain relievers if you can be in pain. The nature of the pain is slightly different when using these two lasers: in the case of alexandrite sensation, pinpoint, diode - longer.
Hair after any laser falls out within two to three weeks, but after alexandrite hair over the skin is burned, when using a diode laser, it does not change its appearance. For dark hair on light skin, both lasers give good results. It also depends on the individual, so it makes sense to try both. Many people switch from alexandrite to a diode laser, as after several procedures the hair becomes thinner and lighter.
