Laser Hair Removal: The Nd YAG Laser Hair Removal Option

By C Mueller

The Neodymium: Yttrium Aluminum Garnet laser is also commonly known as the Nd YAG Laser. It is a newer form of laser hair removal treatment than the Ruby, Alexandrite and Diode lasers so less long term research is available on its ability to remove unwanted hair long term.

Nd YAG lasers are not only used for hair removal but in some cases are used for tattoo and pigmented lesion treatment.

Nd YAG has a long wavelength compared to other laser hair removal options. Longer wavelengths such as the one provided by the Nd YAG laser results in less energy being absorbed by the skin than with other laser options.

Before Nd YAG laser treatment occurs, the patient has a carbon-based lotion spread on the area to be treated that is used to absorb most of the laser energy.

Anyone like myself who has ever had pulsed light hair removal treatment is familiar with the clear gel that is applied to their skin that is used to cool the skin to avoid burning.

As with other laser hair removal options, the success of hair removal and possible side effects of the hair removal will vary by patient. Also, the skill of the practitioner will also go a long way in determining your success or lack thereof.
