Despite the increasing popularity of laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi, It’s interesting that there is very little information available on the internet about specific lasers used for hair removal and other skin procedures. Ads, med-spas, websites and group discussions present you with the blanket “laser hair removal” term. But, no one discusses the various types of lasers used for eliminating unwanted hair. Before you start to splurge on laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi sessions, it is important to educate yourself on the type of lasers and learn which kind will work best for you. Here is a list of top 5 lasers that are commonly used for multiple skin rejuvenation procedures. Let’s dig in a little further;

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

It is certainly the most commonly used kind of laser used for laser for hair removal in Abu Dhabi. It delivers an extensive range of light rays which also uses infrared spectrum. Aculight and Quantum are the most popular systems used. To see the significant reduction in hair, you will require 7 to 8 treatments spread 2 weeks apart from each other.

Best For: It is a painless procedure which makes it ideal to be used on any part of the body, especially those with sensitive skin. It is ideal for those with dark hair and light skin but can be used in dark skinned people. Like almost any kind of laser, it does not work on blond, white and red hair.

Diode Laser

The Diode laser is a relatively new type of laser used for laser hair removal. Owing to its long wavelength, it penetrates deep into the skin and kills the follicles instead of damaging the skin nearby. The problem of discoloration never occurs with this treatment. This, however, is a relatively new treatment and you should be immensely careful about the dermatologist and clinic you choose. Very few dermatologists have experience performing laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi, using this type of diode.

Best For: This particular laser can be used over a broad range of colors but most dermatologists recommend it for light to medium skin tones. The time required per session is fairly short but multiple sessions are required for complete elimination of hair. It is a relatively newer technology, so, only a qualified professional will be able to tell you about the longevity of results.


The NDYAG laser is popularly known for tattoo removal. However, it can also be used for laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi. The longevity of results when it comes to this laser surpasses all other types of lasers. However, it will require a number of sessions to get rid of all the hair.

Best For: This is the preferred option for individuals having dark hair and dark skin. It is not as effective on fine hair. You will have to bear a little more pain during the procedure as compared to other lasers if you decide to go without the numbing cream.

Alexandrite laser

If you are looking for speed, then Alexandrite lasers must be your choice. They cover more area in less time, hence you will be hair free quicker. The shorter wavelength makes this ideal for people with ivory and olive skin tones. It works really well on thin and fine hairs as well, unlike other lasers.

Best For: The faster speed of eliminating unwanted hair makes it ideal for people who want to cover larger areas like legs, arms and chest. However, dark-skinned individuals should stay away from it as it includes significant chances of burning the skin.

Ruby laser

It is the oldest kind of laser used for laser hair removal. It has a shorter wavelength and is only suitable for people with lighter skin and fine hair. It is relatively painless which makes it ideal for people with sensitive skin.

Best For: It is ideal for people with sensitive skin and fair skin tone. However, they cover a relatively smaller region.


Where you go and who performs the procedure is critical because it plays a big role in the determining the outcome of laser hair removal in Abu Dhabi. So, do your research and choose a suitable clinic wisely. Look online and offline, read reviews, talk to the community and then make a suitable choice.
