Understanding Laser Hair Removal for Skin of Color

For years, individuals across New York, NY, have turned to our team at Romeo & Juliette Laser Hair Removal for all of their laser hair removal needs. One of the most common questions customers ask is whether laser hair removal for skin of color is safe and effective. Among the options for managing body hair, laser hair removal provides one of the safest and longest-lasting solutions. Fortunately, all skin tones can receive this treatment.

Lasers and Skin Tone

It is important to understand that skin tone does affect laser hair removal treatments and techniques. The essence of laser hair removal uses light to burn hair follicles at the root. This is why laser hair removal can last so long.

Ultimately, the process works when hair follicles absorb the light from the laser, but skin can also absorb that light. As a result, skin tone directly affects how your body absorbs laser light. This means skin tone has to be accounted for in order for the lasers to work correctly and safely.

The good news is that laser hair science has long accounted for various skin tones. The procedure is viable and safe across the board. No matter your skin tone, our specialist will adjust the procedure according to the light absorption index of your skin. That makes the procedure safe and effective.

Using the Right Laser Treatment

Ultimately, our specialist will ascertain your skin tone during consultation. That enables adjustments before any procedures begin. Depending on the absorption index of your skin, our specialist will select the appropriate laser and laser settings.

Some lasers penetrate deeper before absorption. This allows them to treat darker skin tones without the risk of getting too hot or causing burning. Laser pulses and power outputs are also adjusted.

In short, our specialist will precisely adjust your treatment as needed.
