Laser hair removal is one of the most effective, long-term solution to treat unwanted facial and body hair. But before choosing a Clinic it’s important to understand that while everyone is suitable for laser hair removal, not every laser is safe for all skin types. For example, patients with darker skin tones have a higher risk of developing skin burns if not treated with the right laser. This is due to the increased amount of pigment in their skin that may be targeted instead of the hair. As a result many patients are wondering – what laser hair removal is best for dark skin?
What laser hair removal is best for dark skin? And why?
At Skin Perfection in London’s Oxford Circus, we only use lasers from Cynosure with gold standard technology and multi-wavelength applications. But what does that mean to you? It means these lasers target the hair and not the skin. Truly great news for patients with darker skin tones.
Laser hair removal with a Cynosure device targets the melanin (pigment) in the hair. Consequently it destroys the hair cells that are responsible for hair growth without damaging or heating the surrounding skin.
Cynosure is a global, award-winning medical and aesthetic device company. Cynosure lasers are medical-grade, to ensure the most effective and safest treatment for darker skin. In addition these systems are backed and strongly supported by clinical research.
How to choose a laser hair removal Clinic?
You should always choose an establishment regulated by a professional body. For example Special treatment licence by the local council certifies the establishment to carry out specific skin and laser treatments in a safe and controlled environment. To obtain a Special treatment licence the Company has to meet a number of safety regulations.
