Which laser is best for facial hair removal?

Long Pulse laser (aka Nd:YAG)

This laser is great because it works on all skin types, even darker skin. It also has a larger spot size and fast removal rate.

Which is better Nd:YAG or diode?

Both long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser and IPL are effective modes for hair removal. Although statistically insignificant, more side effects were noted with IPL than with long-pulsed Nd:YAG.

25,000 to 50,000 hours
Typical lifetimes of laser diode modules are 25,000 to 50,000 hours. If the laser diode temperature rises beyond the maximum operating temperature the long-term performance may degrade significantly, up to and including complete failure.
