The reason there are so many is due to the fact they are very cheap to manufacture, consequently, everybody thinks they will make a lot of money by making and selling them. This attracts more manufacturers and now we have a GLUT. Pretty soon there will be more mfctrs than customers.

Pretty soon all who want one will have one and prices will come down as they battle each other for sales.

The number of PRE-owned lasers is growing rapidly. Many operators have given it up. They went into business under financed and can't take the heat.

I tried performing a search for the LHE machine but nothing came up. Has anyone heard of that machine? If so, what type of laser is it?

Can you please give me an advice, so I will know how to start looking at the area where I leave?

Thank you for helping

Hi Faf.

You wan to look for a place that has a Yag laser. That would suit your skin type better. What area are you concerned with? Is your har coarse and dense?

Out of these lasers which would you choose and/or not choose for hair removal on Type III skin, dark hair: Cutera CoolGlide, Cynosure Apogee Elite, Lumenis LightSheer diode or GentleYag?

KP303,

The Candela GentleYag provides the highest average power of the lasers you mentioned. While the Cynosure Apogee Elite Modular offers greater options for different skin/hair types, for type III skin with dark hair, the GentleYag gives you better options. The 18mm spot size give you the greatest amount of energy per follicle out of the systems mentioned. This reduces treatment time, as well as increases efficacy.

One laser you did not mention is the EpiCare LPX. This is an Alexandrite laser which also has a max 18mm spot size. Even in skin type III though, this laser is much better than the GentleYag because it has a max average power of 100W.

The only system FDA approved for use in the US is the Sincoheren IPL. The Emma Diode is not FDA approved for use in the US, and the transfer, sale, or use of this system in the US is a violation of federal law.

If you would like to see an IPL and a combined Alexandrite/YAG laser machine being used during a laser hair removal procedure, there is a laser hair removal online training video you can watch. Just click on the link and scroll down to click on the link to view the video excerpt.

Two physicians Christine Whitelaw, M.D., and Mark B. Taylor, M.D. demonstrate step-by-step procedures and parameter considerations on an IPL and a combined Alexandrite/YAG laser machine. Demonstrations are on male and female models with different Fitzpatrick types.
