Will Laser Hair Removal Work on Dark Skin?

Shaving, waxing, plucking, hair creams, and other hair removal procedures can be a lot of work. But many darker skinned men and women have probably heard that laser hair removal won’t work for them. Laser hair removal can be more challenging for those with darker skin tones – the skin is pigmented and lasers can have trouble targeting the pigment in the hair. However, technology has advanced and many dark-skinned patients have found success with laser hair removal.

The Cynosure Elite MPX addresses hair removal on all skin types, including dark skin, for permanent reduction of unwanted body hair. This laser targets and removes cells responsible for hair growth without harming the surrounding skin.

Those with darker skin should ask questions of their laser hair removal provider. Darker skin is more prone to burns because it has more melanin. There are lasers available for those who have darker skin tones that detect the contrast between your skin color and hair pigment to remove the hair safely and effectively.

If you have unwanted hair anywhere on your body, you can rely on Laser Skin Care Specialists to offer you the best option to permanently reduce it. If you are tired of shaving, waxing, tweezing and plucking, give us a call today to schedule your consultation.
