Long pulsed alexandrite laser light (3-50 ms) penetrates the skin and couples to the pigment cell of the hair follicle, inactivating the hair follicle. Since this coupling of the laser light is selective for dark hair, the best results are also achieved with laser epilation on dark hair on light skin. In Q-switched mode effective against tattoos.
With the Q-switched alexandrite laser, pulse lengths in the picosecond range have been possible for some time. With these shorter pulses, tattoos can be removed faster and better.
