Do something today that your future self will thank you for
Imagine the time, effort and money you could save if you were able to stop shaving, waxing or bleaching the body hair you wish you never had. From unwanted facial hair or unsightly back, arm and chest hair to the daily grind of shaving our legs, underarms or bikini line; Orchid Medical Center’s laser department offers a long-term solution to a problem many of us face everyday. Every course of treatment begins with an individual consultation to meet your personal needs and our team of experts will guide you every step of the way through treatment to aftercare.
Each of the following methods of hair removal has their own distinct benefits and advantages:
- Diode Laser
Diode laser hair removal is a safe and effective treatment for darker skin types. Its long wavelength delivery system may mean that light can penetrate deeper into the skin than methods with a shorter wavelength, which can reduce the effects of skin discoloration and scarring. However, it is less effective on finer, lighter hair and skin tones. Diode laser hair removal can cover large areas of the body effectively and efficiently
- Nd:YAG Laser
Nd:YAG laser removal is particularly effective on tanned and dark skin; an area where some other laser treatments do not work as successfully. The Nd:YAG method has fast repetitions rates and can cover large areas of body hair quickly. One drawback of the Nd: YAG laser is that it is less effective on light or fine hair.
- Alexandrite Laser
Unlike Diode or Nd:YAG laser hair removal, the Alexandrite method is effective with pale skin tones and finer, lighter hair. Alexandrite is also the fastest type of laser hair removal available with a very good skin penetration rate; making it one of the most popular forms of laser hair removal methods used worldwide. Alexandrite may be effective on olive skin tones but is not recommended for darker skin.

- Q-switch Nd: YAG LASER
Using the latest technology in the market – Spectra – the Nd: YAG laser method can also be used to reduce the appearance of the following conditions:
- Tattoo Removal
- Acne Scars
- Non-ablative resurfacing
- Vascular Lesions
- Wrinkle Reduction
- Whitening dark areas
Q-switch Nd:YAG focuses laser light over the pigmented area to ‘shatter’ the pigment for the body to absorb. People who opt for this method often see results after the very first session, and depending on the area of pigmented skin, may only need one appointment. Q-switch Nd:YAG is suitable for all skin types but is sometimes not effective on extremely dark skin. Side effects are minimum and temporary whereas the results are often astounding and in some cases, life changing.
