You may wonder what’s the best type of hair and skin combination for laser hair removal. And whether these have any impact on your treatments. Yes, the colour of your skin and hair have a major role in the treatment process. So let’s examine the case of laser hair removal for dark skin and dark hair.
Laser hair removal in practice
Laser works by emitting a single concentrated beam of light. This light is attracted by the pigment in your hair which takes the heat of the laser all the way to the follicles. These are destroyed enabling future hair growth. So this makes us establish the fact that having pigment in your hair is essential for your laser hair treatment to work. Unfortunately this not the case with blonde, red and white hairs.
Laser hair removal for dark skin and dark hair
While everyone is suitable for laser hair removal, not every laser is suitable for every patient. And this is especially the rule with patients who have dark skin and dark hair. The reason being is the increased level of melanin in the skin. Where both the skin and the hair has dark pigment the laser has to by pass the melanin in the skin and still focus on the hair, as the main target. Keeping your skin safe during the treatment. To ensure you’ll get an effective but safe procedure a special type of laser called ND YAG is necessary to be used during your treatment.
Laser works best for patients with darker hair, therefore you are perfectly safe and suitable for the treatment. As long as the right type of laser wavelength is available for you. Always enquire and ensure that the clinic you choose will not put you at risk by using any other type of lasers and definitely avoid IPL machines. Otherwise you may pay less for the first time, however end up spending much more money and time rectifying possible hair stimulation, scarring and even burns that could occur from using the wrong type of machines.
