african american skin laser hair removal

As a matter of fact, nature gives us different skin tones.  Skin tone plays an important role on what cosmetic treatment will suit your skin. That is why we find a difference among treatments options for various skin tones.

It comes as no surprise that laser hair removal is the most effective hair removal treatment that offers permanent hair removal results. All other hair removal treatments only offer temporary results.

On other words, it is a one-time investment and you will be free from unwanted hair for life. People often ask if laser hair removal is good for dark skin. It is due to the reason that the early generation lasers were not suitable for the people with skin of color.

Laser Hair Removal and Dark Skin

It was due to the high risk of hyperpigmentation and scarring. The early lasers were only suitable for people with Fitzpatrick type I – IV. Ever since the laser has been introduced for hair removal, the laser hair removal technology has evolved to become suitable for all skin tones.

The color of the skin is formed by a substance ‘melanin’, and the dark people have an excess of melanin. On the other hand, laser interacts with melanin and that is why the people with dark skin are at risk than the people with white skin.

Light Skin vs. Dark Skin

The only criteria which serve as a key factor for undergoing laser hair removal are that your hair should be darker than your skin tone. For this reason, people with blond hair cannot undergo laser hair removal.
