Which laser hair removal is best for Indian skin? During the past decades laser hair removal has become one of the most effective and long term solutions to remove all your unwanted body and facial hair. However many still believe laser works similarly to waxing and other hair removal treatments, which couldn’t be further from the truth. One of the main aspects is suitability that many are still not aware of. While everyone is suitable for laser hair removal, not every laser is safe for all skin types. For example patients with Indian skin may not be able to treat with certain lasers. If you have an Asian background and thinking about laser hair removal you should definitely consider these key points before starting your hair removal journey.
Patients with Indian skin have a higher risk of developing skin burns if not treated with the right laser.
So why is that? It’s all due to the increased amount of pigment in skin that may be targeted instead of the hair. During laser treatment, the machine emits a light which the pigment in your hair picks up straight away. Here the light energy turn into heat energy that travels to the root. Once reaching the root the heat destroys the hair follicles. But when you’ve naturally more pigment in your skin, there is a risk that the laser may target your skin instead of the hair itself. So how can you minimise this risk and ensure that your skin doesn’t get burned/scarred during laser hair removal? It’s all about choosing the right machine for you.
Which laser hair removal is best for Indian skin? And why?
The key is to choose a medical grade laser that has a wavelength specifically designed for patients with darker skin tones and can bypass the skin colour.
Laser hair removal with a Cynosure device targets the 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.
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 patient with Indian skin.
