Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin Individuals in Atlanta

The laser hair removal and dark skin tone combination has myths that surround it which can best be summed up as a Catch 22. Lasers are effective for laser hair removal because of the hair’s ability to absorb light. When skin is dark in tone (olive complexion and darker), the high amounts of melanin in the skin tend to absorb the light at a higher rate – more so than the hair that is supposed to be targeted during a laser removal treatment. As a result, patients with darker complexions run a higher risk of burning, blistering, or discoloration on the skin, not to mention mediocre results.

Safe Laser Removal for Dark Skin Tones at Look Young Atlanta

  • Our Cutera® CoolGlide laser therapies are  successful with darker skin toned patients is because of CoolGlide’s Nd:YAG long-wavelength abilities.
  • Most lasers, even CoolGlide, function best at short-wavelength settings — light pulses are sent just a few millimeters below the skin surface. Short-wavelength settings work on lighter skinned individuals because they have very little pigmentation on their skin surface to “distract” the lasers pulses.
  • Darker skin toned patients need longer wavelengths need to penetrate the skin deeper so that the skin’s surface does not distract the laser away from the hair.
  • A national medical review of CoolGlide said ” [CoolGlide lasers] are more than sufficient to reach the base of the bulb… expected to produce sufficient follicular injury with less epidermal damage in patients…“. Total destruction of the follicle, with minimal if any, damage to your skin.
