Ever worried about having laser hair removal on darker skin tones?
People with darker skin are often told that laser hair removal does would not work on their skin. Either that or they’re told they would need more sessions or there’s a higher risk of burns and damage to their skin. But the truth is there are some professional laser machines out there that can treat them.
The laser technology used at Deluxe Laser & Spa is some of the innovative technologies in the market and is able to treat all skin tones without risk. The eLase and Soprano Ice machines used at Deluxe have an incredible ability to distinguish between subtleties in pigmentation, effectively removing hair on any skin tone.
They make use of radio frequency (colour blind); therefore regardless of the skin colour, it is extremely safe. It only penetrates 4mm into the skin which is where our follicles are, and because it is so accurate it won’t affect any surrounding tissue.
If eLase or Soprano is used for hair removal, you shouldn’t have any additional risks or concerns compared to lighter skin tones. Though darker skin in general has a higher risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation if burned, damaged or manipulated, you shouldn’t experience any increased risks with this innovative laser technology.
It’s also especially important to go to a qualified laser hair removal professional if you have darker skin. Why? While laser hair removal results can be great if you’re treated by an experienced laser hair removal technician using the right kind of laser, if you’re treated with the wrong laser or if it’s on the wrong setting, you won’t get the maximum hair reduction. Worse, you might also end up with burns, hyperpigmentation, and even increased hair growth.
Because Deluxe uses the latest technology, the cooling tip on the hand piece helps to prevents superficial burns or damage to the skin.
There’s no question that laser hair removal works. It’s the preferred way to remove hair because it’s safer and more permanent than other methods such as waxing, plucking, shaving, and electrolysis.
