Hair removal has been a constant topic since ancient times. With the change in technology, there are many different ways to remove hair, such as shaving, waxing, clipping, plucking, mechanical depilation, radiation, electrolysis, surgical excision, and the use of chemical agents and drugs, etc. In recent years, laser hair removal with effective, safe and permanent features has become very popular among young people. Long pulse nd yag laser is one of the most frequently used.

What is a long pulsed nd yag laser?
Long pulsed lasers are used safely and effectively to remove unwanted hair and treat damaged blood vessels in the legs. Compared to the shorter wavelength lasers, the long-pulsed 1064nm Nd: YAG laser is absorbed less by melanin and can penetrate deeper.
What are the applications of pulse nd yag laser?
Long pulsed laser ND: YAG 1064nm is considered to be the best for darker skin photo types. Due to reduced scatter and deeper penetration of the laser light. It can penetrate the deeper hair in the skin and has a greater water absorption which generates a higher temperature, increasing the profile of thermal treatment for more effective hair removal.
On the contrary, Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal 755nm offers more powerful energy absorption by the melanin chromophore, making it ideal for the widest range of hair types and especially light-coloured and thin hair. With more superficial penetration, the 755nm wavelength targets the bulge of the hair follicle and is especially effective for superficially embedded hair in areas such as the eyebrows and upper lip.
The long pulse Nd:YAG laser energy is selectively absorbed by the deeper levels of the dermis and
allows for the treatment of deeper vascular lesions such as telangiectasias, hemangiomas and leg veins. The laser energy is delivered using long pulses which are converted into heat in the tissue. The heat impacts the diseased blood vessels.
In addition, since the main chromophores of blue vein, methemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin, have the maximum absorption coefficient at 1064 nm, it is much easier to treat blue veins. Adequately long pulse width allows slow and even heating of blood vessels, making them coagulated while avoiding purpura and hyperpigmentation after the laser treatment. It is still recommended to cool down the epidermis during the treatment to minimize post-procedural side effects.
Besides, the Nd:YAG laser can treat at a more superficial level. By heating the subcutaneous skin, long-pulsed laser energy stimulates the production of collagen, resulting in skin cell renewal. This process replaces old skin cells with new, healthy skin cells, resulting in healthier, radiant, and younger-looking skin.
What is the long pulsed nd yag laser cost?
Bvlaser is a professional supplier and manufacturer of Medical laser devices. Bvlaser’s long pulsed nd yag laser hair removal machine not only can emit nd. Yag 1064nm laser, but also can emit Alexandrite 755nm Laser. Therefore, treatments are available for all skin types and hair colours.
- Equipped with an advanced liquid nitrogen handle. Liquid nitrogen is one of the cryogenic liquids commonly used in research labs. As “cryogenic” means related to very low temperature, it is a freezing material. It rapidly reduces the high temperature released by the laser on the skin surface. Better protection from skin damage and minimized side effects of laser hair removal treatment.
- In addition, the handle can be adjusted for spot size from 2mm to 8mm according to the client’s needs.
- Besides, the long pulse machine is equipped with a high-quality fibre laser. It increases the energy transmission efficiency by up to 98% and greatly reduces energy loss during transmission. As a result, the treatment efficiency is higher and the number of treatments can be reduced accordingly, compared to ordinary long-pulse laser devices.
In a word, the long pulse nd yag laser is a safe and effective method to remove unwanted hair for men and women.
