How does the Candela ND-YAG laser work?

The ND-YAG laser

The Candela ND-YAG laser works by emitting a high-energy beam of light at a specific wavelength, typically in the range of 1064 nanometers. This wavelength penetrates deeper into the skin, selectively targeting dark pigments such as melanin found in unwanted hair or pigmented lesions. When the laser light is absorbed by these pigments, it converts into heat, selectively destroying the target cells without damaging the surrounding tissues. The Candela ND-YAG laser is often used for treatments such as hair removal, vascular lesion treatment, pigmented lesion treatment, tattoo removal, and other medical and aesthetic applications. It’s important to note that the use of the Candela ND-YAG laser should be performed by a qualified professional to ensure safe and effective results.

Next, let’s delve into the different techniques and how lasers work.
Caution and Information

Before undergoing laser treatment, make sure to educate yourself about the type of laser being used. There are many different lasers, and they are not all the same. Some may not be suitable for all hair and/or skin colors. Others may be ineffective in the long term or even pose risks to your health.

Caution and obtaining appropriate information are paramount!

How Does the Nd-YAG Laser Work?

This laser is extremely powerful and highly selective. Its light beam targets and absorbs melanin, the pigment in the hair. It converts into heat and destroys the hair follicle at its source.
This beam is extremely precise and does not penetrate beyond the dermis, thereby preserving the skin and surrounding tissues. Its wavelength is non-carcinogenic, ensuring treatment under maximum safety conditions. 

Here’s a short explanatory video to better understand its operation.

At EpilSoft, we combine the Nd-YAG laser with a cooling system that provides an anesthetic effect to the treated area, offering you maximum comfort during your treatment sessions. Key takeaways: The Nd-YAG laser is:
  • Recommended for women and men who want to enhance their daily comfort.
  • Recommended for safe facial and body hair removal.
  • Recommended for treating ingrown hairs and soothing associated inflammation.
  • Recommended for achieving smooth and soft skin.
  • Recommended for darker skin phototypes, including black and Asian skin.
It’s important to note that the Alexandrite laser is not recommended for:
  • White and red hairs, as well as fine hairs.
  • Very young individuals. It’s preferable to wait until a certain hormonal balance is reached before starting treatment (otherwise, it’s more of a comfort-based treatment).
At EpilSoft, we never push for unnecessary treatments! That’s why the first consultation is always free. It allows us to explain to all our patients what they need to know before starting a treatment protocol and to determine if the proposed treatment is compatible with their skin and hair type. If you’re convinced and want to put an end to your unwanted hair, we invite you to schedule an appointment at our laser hair removal center, EpilSoft.
