Alexandrite laser

Mahta Clinic with the best laser devices

Alexandrite Kendall Laser (Alex)

It is one of the most advanced laser devices in the world for removing excess hair.

One of the unique features of this device is the adjustable length of hair and the amount of energy to remove any type of hair and skin.

This laser is a type of solid laser that has a wavelength of 755 nm and is in the range of visible light.

Due to the high absorption of melanin at this wavelength, its special application is the removal of excess hair. This device is equipped with a special cooling system to prevent irritation.


‎The main difference between laser devices is the type of energy transfer from the lamp to the patient’s body, the skin cooling system and the hygiene of the device.

Alexandrite laser technique

Alexandrite laser light (Cynosure or Candela) is absorbed by hair melanin. Light is converted into heat in the hair. This heat is then transferred to the hair follicles. The hair follicles are heated and destroyed by this heat. This is the principle of permanent hair removal. The Alexandrite laser adjustment allows different hair treatments depending on the texture, density, color and depth of the hair. The advantage of the alexandrite laser is its speed in removing different parts of the body.

Alexandrite laser: contraindicated

  • Any exposure to the sun and UV 4 weeks before and 1 week after the session
    Use self-tanning creams and capsules
    Pregnancy and lactation
    Taking allergens
    Infection or burning of the treated area

Alexandrite Laser Session Sequence


The skin should be clean before all laser treatments. The anesthetic cream can be applied about 1 hour before the session to reduce the painful sensation. Before the session, the cream is removed and the skin is dried.

The laser session lasts between 5 and 1h30 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area. After the alexandrite laser session, a healing cream is applied to the treated skin.

Consequences of alexandrite laser treatment

After alexandrite laser treatment, the appearance of redness and peripheral edema is observed almost systematically, which generally disappear in 1 to 2 days.

Feelings of warmth may be present during the first day after treatment.
