Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is a semi-permanent hair removal technique that works by delivering intense heat to individual hair follicles.

Which laser type is best for my skin and facial hair removal? I'm a 23-year-old Asian female and have been getting Q-switched lasers.

Non q-switched (longer pulsed) Nd:Yag 1064 lasers is the safest laser for darker skin types. You are correct q-switched lasers are not for hair removal, they are for tattoo removal and certain types of dermally pigmented birthmarks. I recommend a board certified Dermatologist for any laser treatments.
