Is laser hair removal suitable for dark or asian skin?
Laser Hair Removal is an ideal option for those looking for a semi-permanent reduction in hair growth.
Previously, laser hair removal on dark or Asian skin has been difficult as dark or Asian skin often has more melanin which makes it more prone to burning and pigmentation.
Technology has since improved and here at The Private Clinic we have a team of expert laser therapists who are experienced in treating all skin types including Asian, Arabic and ethnic skin types.
We use Nd-Yag laser machines to perform our laser hair removal treatments. The YAG laser wavelength goes deeper into the skin than other laser types which means it bypasses the melanin in your skin making it the safest option for dark skin.
All patients are required to have a free patch test before going ahead with treatment, even if they have been treated successfully elsewhere before.
Although we offer IPL treatments, we do not use IPL for hair removal benefits.
