Laser Hair Removal for Tan Skin

No Comments on Laser Hair Removal for Tan Skin

In the past, laser hair removal was particularly effective in women and men who had light skin with dark hair. The lasers used for hair removal targeted melanin in the skin in order to destroy the hair follicle. The melanin is heated in the targeted area that the hair is being removed from, while the surrounding skin remains untouched. Then the laser energy is absorbed by dark material in the skin (i.e. melanin).

New laser systems send intense laser energy into the hair follicles. The laser is absorbed by the pigment in the follicles and is then converted to heat. This heat then loosens the hair and stops new hair growth cells. While light skin and dark hair is the ideal combination for an Edmonton laser hair removal treatment, new advances in laser hair removal allow for even dark-skinned patients to enjoy the benefits of the treatment.

Laser hair removal can target hair on different parts of the body including:

  • Back
  • Neck
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Bikini Line
  • Face

Because laser hair removal is safe and effective for multiple skin types and hair color…what are you waiting for?
