Experience the power of laser
Which treatments can be performed with laser at Injex Clinics?
What is laser?
Laser stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Simply put, by using certain lasers with particular settings we are able to treat a number of conditions.
How many types of lasers are there?
There are so many different types of lasers. Here’s just a few names you may or might not know: Ruby, Alexandrite, Nd:Yag, CO2. These are the most common types of lasers, but they then have a variety of difference such as wavelength, q-switched, and speed (eg. Nanosecond or Picosecond)
What’s the difference between Laser & IPL?
A lot of people get confused with this and think Laser & IPL are the same thing, but infact they are vastly different. Laser technology is far superior to IPL. While both use light as their medium for treatment, Laser is targeted and precise, where as IPL is more like going in blind and hoping for the best. For example, when we consider hair removal, using a laser the pigment in the hair is targeted, which is why you might have heard that laser works best on dark hair. Where as IPL can’t ‘see’ it just shoots and hopes for the best. Often the hair is deeper than the IPL has target, so this knocks the hair out for a while, but eventually it usually comes back.
What types of lasers do Injex Clinics have?
At Injex we have a 755nm Alexandrite which is amazing for laser hair removal and treating pigmentation, in particular freckles. We also have a 532nm & 1064nm Q-Switched Nd:YAG. This machine is used for Carbon facials, superficial pigmentation and tattoo removal.
How much does laser cost?
Lasers are extremely expensive to purchase, but we try and keep our prices as low as possible and even price match with other clinics! Depending on what type of laser you want and what area you would like treated will determine the price.
