Laser Hair Removal dark skin
Laser Hair Removal is a treatment that uses an intense, pulsating beam of light that removes unwanted hair on the body.
Now with 40% of London’s population being people of colour, UK dermatologists and cosmetic treatment providers are beginning to recognise this and are creating their produces to accomplish the best results on all skin types.
A few years ago, Laser Hair Removal was not a safe option for darker skin, however, the Laser used at Laser Life Clinic in London has reversed the situation. By by-passing the surface of the skin, it targets the melanin in the root of the hair and damages the hairs dark pigment in the follicle, in turn damaging the follicle to inhibit hair loss. Due to its efficient skin cooling system, laser tends to be more comfortable and gentler on the skin than waxing or threading.
Since we know that black skin can be more sensitive and reactive, a consultation and patch test with the expert therapists at Laser Life Clinic is vital to ensure the best result. Treatments for darker skin tend to need to be specialised and often a gentler approach is needed in order to protect the skins pigment while giving maximum results. At Laser Life Clinic, all our therapists are trained to understand the difference between all skin tones and to calibrate our highly advanced lasers to the appropriate setting for even small differences in skin shade.
But, even if the skin is darker, it is just as important that the skin and avoid direct sunlight 6 weeks before and after the treatment to avoid marks appearing on the skin. As the skin is more sensitive after the treatment, it would be beneficial to use sunscreen of at least 30 SPF to protect the skin.
