Laser Hair Removal For Dark Skin

  • September 16, 2016

Now that summer is winding down, it’s time to get serious about Hair Removal.

At Caddell’s Laser Clinic, we have a variety of lasers that we use to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair. In the past people with dark hair and fair skin were considered the best candidates for Laser Hair Removal but that’s changed. We can now provide Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin at our clinic in Bellevue. With our Cutera Nd Yag Laser clients with dark skin are getting Laser Hair Removal on their:

LHR for Dark Skin

  • Pubic areas and bikini lines
  • Cleavage and chest
  • Arms and hands
  •  Legs and toes
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Earlobes
  • Shoulders
  • Underarms
  • Back

It’s now possible for dark skinned clients to achieve the smooth, beautiful skin they’ve always wanted with Laser Hair Removal. People choose Laser Hair Removal because it removes unwanted body hair permanently while shaving, waxing and tweezing can cause irritation, rash, nicks and ingrown hairs.

What’s Different About Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin?

Laser Hair Removal on dark skin didn’t used to be an option. Since lasers work by targeting skin pigmentation it was too hard to differentiate between the darkness in hair and the darkness of the skin. It’s an important distinction because if ignored, could lead to permanently charred skin. Due to increases in the technology of lasers manufacturers finally were able to perfect ways to make laser treatments safer for darker skin tones, the Nd Yag 1064 long-pulsed laser. This laser zaps the hair follicle from a deeper layer under the skin, minimizing the chance of surface damage. This is the laser used at Caddell’s Laser Clinic for Laser Hair Removal and Laser Vein Removal.

What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal

A series of treatments is required for Laser Hair Removal to work because the laser only targets active hair follicles. To get the results you want from Laser Hair Removal you have to be committed to ongoing treatments. Treatments get farther apart as time goes on because the growth of hair slows down. And you’ll notice that after several treatments your hair in those areas is reduced in both thickness and in the amount for longer periods of time.
