Does laser hair removal work for people of color? Here’s the truth about laser hair removal for dark skin tones.
Laser hair removal…
Say goodbye to unwanted hair. Permanently.
It’s a pretty common misconception that laser hair removal won’t work for people with darker skin tones. While this might have been true when the FDA first approved laser hair removal back in the late 90s, technology has advanced over the years in order to make it safe for even the darkest of skin tones.
However, it’s important to mention that some places that advertise laser hair removal services are really using IPL or Intense Pulsed Light technology—the same outdated technology found in most at-home devices. This is not a real laser and should NEVER be used on darker skin tones! Not only does it offer inferior results, but for people of color it may lead to burns and complications.
Our laser, the GentleMax Pro, provides the safest treatments for darker skin tones. It uses two lasers — one fair skin (Alexandrite) and one that’s for darker skin (Nd: Yag). The Nd: Yag technology has a weaker melanin absorption rate, and longer wavelengths which make it safe to use on dark skin tones.
This combination of technologies allows our highly-trained medical professionals to create customized treatment plans to fit the exact needs of each client’s skin tone and hair type. With us, there’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to treatment plans. It’s this customization that enables us to safely and effectively perform laser hair removal on any skin tone—from the fair to the darkest.
