Laser Hair Removal For Dark Skin

Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle with laser light, this energy damages and goes on to destroy the hair follicle, thus stopping the follicle from producing further hairs. The newest lasers on the market now have the ability to target the melanin in the root of the hair without dispersing into the surrounding dark skin with its high melanin content, allowing laser hair removal to work effectively on dark skin.

Dark skin and hair need to be treated slightly differently from Caucasian skin due to the high melanin content found in the skin. Unfortunately, because of this, it lagged behind in its ability to have lasers used on it, because lasers of the past picked up on the melanin in the skin and did not only hit the hair follicle.

This had unpleasant side effects and wasn’t workable. Luckily with advances in the laser industry, there are now lasers out there that can effectively and safely target only the hair follicle, leaving your skin safe and sound.

There are a few different lasers available for darker skin but the one we use, and most recommend is the Gentle Max Pro which has the Nd:Yag laser built in. This laser penetrates deeper into the skin picking up only on the hair and not the pigment in the skin, this is vital for darker skin as it allows you to miss the melanin and only hit the hair follicle.

Without this, you would see lighter patches where the melanin has been destroyed in the skin, definitely not what you want. With this advanced technology, you can safely receive laser hair removal with no risk to your skin.

Here at Pulse Light Clinic, we have been treating darker skin since these safe lasers came out on the market, we are very experienced and do understand any concerns you may have.

Come in for your free consultation and we can answer any questions you have. Meaning that you can get your treatments happy with the knowledge that you are in safe hands. To view more laser hair removal before and afters.

Step by Step Laser Hair Removal Guide

How long does a laser hair removal treatment take?

The time a laser hair removal treatment takes depends on the area/s being treated, a small area like the underarms can take 15 minutes and larger areas can take from 1 hour to 2.5 hours.

Does laser hair removal work on dark skin?

Yes, at Pulse Light Clinic we can provide safe and effective laser hair removal for darker skin types using the ND Yag laser by Gentle Max Pro. The number of treatments required is usually from 6-8 treatments depending on the area that is being treated, the hair growth and thickness. This will be discussed at your consultation and patch test.

Does laser hair removal hurt?

Laser hair removal isn’t a painful treatment and can be tolerated by many clients. The pain is often described as an elastic band pinging on the skin with cool air blowing which helps. You can see what the treatment would feel like at your consultation and patch test.

What laser hair removal machine do we use on dark skin types?

Dark skin and hair needs to be treated slightly differently from lighter skin due to the high melanin content found in the skin. Pulse Light Clinic use the GentleMax Pro which has the Nd:Yag laser built in which is best for darker skin types. This laser penetrates deeper into the skin picking up only on the hair and not the pigment in the skin, this is vital for darker skin as it allows you to miss the melanin and only hit the hair follicle.
