Laser hair removal works best in lighter-skinned, darker-haired patients. This is because the laser’s primary target is melanin, or dark pigment, so gray or white hair (which lacks pigment) cannot be proficiently treated with a light-based device. Also, tanned skin reduces laser energy as it passes through to the hair follicle, diminishing the pulse’s strength and making it less effective. However, although some lasers cannot treat tanned skin, our esthetician has the technology to provide laser hair removal to our patients year-round, whether your skin is tanned or untanned.
The quickness of laser hair removal, combined with its long-lasting effects and the large areas that can be treated during one session, make it the solution of choice for many men and women.Laser hair removal works on the face, armpits, bikini areas, back, legs, arms and chest.
