A dual wavelength laser from Cynosure, named the Apogee elite will be arriving at The Victorian Cosmetic Institute this week. It has two wavelengths that will help to remove hair on any skin type.
The 755nm wavelength (alexandrite) will remove even the finest of hairs on fairer skins, and the 1064nm (Nd:YAG) will remove hairs on dark skin.
There is a Zimmer cooler that is used with the machine that helps to chill the skin and protect it whilst the laser penetrates deeper to the hair follicle.
