Laser Hair Removal Myth: You Can’t Be Treated if You Have Dark Skin and Dark Hair


Have you visited a clinic for laser hair removal and were refused, just because their laser technology couldn’t deal with your dark skin and dark hair? They must be using dated technology, then!

It’s a common assumption that men and women with dark skin and dark hair are not good candidates for laser hair removal. This is explained as being the fault of the laser, which works by zapping hair follicles by targeting pigment (the pigment absorbs the heat of the laser). These types of lasers aren’t able to effectively target hair follicles due to the amount of pigment in the skin. If you have fair hair and fair skin, it may also be difficult for you to find suitable laser hair removal technology. But remember: it’s only because the technology is dated.

Newer technologies, such as elos™ at Skin Vitality, don’t have this problem. The patented combination of Laser and Bi-polar Radio Frequency ( RF ) energies is safe for any skin type, and any hair colour. We’ve had enormous success in treating patients of all shades, and we are constantly amazed at the remarkable ability of our laser hair removal machines.
