Darker Skin Laser Hair Removal Now Safe

Darker Skin Laser Hair Removal Now Safe
While lighter skin tones have been a prescribed requirement for laser hair removal, it is now possible for safe and effective laser hair removal on darker skin tones! Laser hair removal technology is designed to detect a contrast between the skin and hair. Once the hair is identified by the laser, the heat from the light of the laser is absorbed by the pigment in the hair.  This heat generates inflammation in the hair follicle which causes the follicle to go into its resting state.

Darker Skin Laser Hair Removal Now Safe

Recent advances in laser technology offer safe and effective laser hair removal treatment on darker skin tones! Follow these 3 simple guidelines and you can be hair free – no matter your skin tone!

1. Ask for diode and Nd-Yag laser technology

In the past, individuals with darker skin were not candidates for laser hair removal because of the higher level of melanin in the skin.  However, laser hair removal technology has advanced dramatically. The new diode, Nd-Yag laser machine offerS safe and effective laser hair removal treatment for individuals with darker skin. A laser is precise because it is specific in its wavelength. The effect the laser has on the melanin in the skin diminishes when a diode or Nd-yag machine is used.  At National Laser Institute our experts will give your dream results using our diode, Nd-Yag laser hair removal machine.

2. Make sure your laser tech is certified
