Ditch the razor, use laser!
Shaving, not the best hair removal choice
Did you know the human skin has an average of 5 million hair follicles? Like nails, hair is made from keratin and grows at a constant rate throughout our lives. Shaving away unwanted hair is a common part of people’s routine; however, using a razor only cuts the hair shaft at the surface of the skin, and it leaves behind the darkly pigmented follicle.
The follicle then regrows the hair within a matter of days. Now, laser hair removal is achievable for darker skin tones with Nd: YAG Laser Hair Removal.
Finally, laser hair removal for darker skin tones
Although laser hair removal technology has been on the commercial market since 1995, treatments worked best for lighter tones of skin with dark hair pigmentation. This was due to the short wavelengths of light produced by the lasers that was unable to pinpoint differences between the melanin found in the skin, and the melanin surrounding the hair follicles, unless there was a high contrast between the two.
With the recent development of the neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet, or Nd:YAG crystal, high contrast requirements are a thing of the past!
By emitting a longer wavelength of light at longer intervals, laser machines that use Nd:YAG technology are now able to selectively target and destroy melanin in a wide range of skin and hair tones. This innovation makes Nd:YAG, the best laser hair removal for dark skin.
Is permanent laser hair removal safe?
Intense light pulse, or IPL laser treatments, are one of the most popular skin enhancing procedures. The concentrated light waves sent through the laser beam are absorbed by the darker hair follicles while leaving surrounding skin tissues intact. Due to the precision of the latest laser technology, even sensitive areas such as the face, bikini line, under arms can be treated with minimal discomfort.
Depending on the size of the areas treated, several appointments may be necessary to reduce the chances of any skin irritation. Proper after treatment skin care is always recommended to maintain the desired results.
