Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin: Serving People From Across the U.S.
Laser hair removal was once upon a time a risky procedure for people with dark skin types. We are happy to report this is no longer the case! It still remains true that not all lasers are safe for all skin types and that’s why it is so important to go to a facility that has a laser that can safely treat your skin type and that has the experience to know how to use it.
We utilize the nd:YAG laser technology and we’ve performed over 300,000 sessions of laser hair removal on people of color without a single complication. The Yag laser is uniquely designed to protect the skin while achieving excellent hair removal results.
If you suffer from ingrown hairs or razor bumps you will see a huge reduction after your first session. Most patients experience total resolution of this issue over the course of treatment.
Any pigmentation you have due to those ingrown hairs and razor bumps will also begin to fade. The results are very dramatic and life changing!
We have extensive experience in treating darker skin types; in fact our patients represent over 52 different nationalities. We can treat all body parts safely and effectively on both men and women.
Facial Hair in People with Dark Skin Types
Every day we see men and women in our office who are emotionally distraught over their unwanted facial hair. Many of these patients suffer from severe bumps on their face and neck due to ingrown hairs and have tried every over-the-counter product without success.
For women, facial hair is likely hormonally driven. While it’s typical for men to have facial hair it becomes problematic if the hair is course and wants to curl, which leads to uncomfortable ingrown hairs and skin irritation. For many this is a common condition known as Pseudofolliculitis Barbae. We have treated countless individuals with this condition with great success. Imagine being bump-free without numerous areas of darkened pigmentation. It happens here every day.
At WIFH, we want you to know, you are not alone in this problem. Laser hair removal can absolutely get rid of your unwanted facial hair and ingrowns and keep them gone. Our experience can prove it. Take a look at some of our before and after photos.
