While laser hair removal is the most effective and convenient solution to remove unwanted hairs its important to understand that not every laser is suitable for all skin types. This doesn’t mean if you have darker skin tone you can’t have laser treatment, it just means you have a higher risk of developing skin burns if not treated with the right machine. This is due to the increased amount of pigment in your skin that may be targeted instead of the hair. So it’s crucial that you choose the safest and most specific laser to your skin type. So which laser hair removal is safest for dark skin?
How laser hair removal works?
Lasers emits a concentrated beam of light, that the colour in your hair will attract. At this stage the light energy turns into heat that goes straight to the root of your hair. Your hair follicles gets destroyed preventing future hair growth.
Which laser hair removal is safest for dark skin?
The key to choosing the right laser for dark skin is make sure that the laser targets the melanin (pigment) in the hair and surpasses the pigment in the skin, which is at a higher level than in patients with lighter skin tones. Consequently the laser can destroy the hair cells that are responsible for hair growth without damaging or heating the surrounding skin.
Although there are many lasers in the market, the safest laser that can deliver the above effect safety yet effectively is the ND YAG laser by Cynosure. This wavelength is specifically designed for patients with darker skin tones.
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.
