Dark Skin Permanent Hair Removal

Since the heat produced by laser travels better through the dark hair pigment rather than skin, the success of laser treatment depends on the amount of pigment in your hair compared to your skin. The lighter your hair color or the darker your skin color, the less effective laser becomes. Therefore, people with light hair or those with tan, dark, or black skin are hard or impossible to treat with laser. Indeed, one of the dangers of laser occurs when technicians crank up the laser power to try to treat people with dark skin or light hair - that is when most laser burns occur.

"Laser hair removal" practitioners often compare their treatment to electrolysis. But the FDA no longer allows laser hair removal to advertise its services as permanent removal only as permanent reduction. And laser hasn't been evaluated for long-term safety. But don't take our word for it.  The FDA website on laser facts is one place where you can start your research.

Electrolysis is different. It brings the heat directly to the source and only destroys the cells that need to be eliminated, leaving the skin intact. And since it does not rely on the amount of pigment in the hair or skin, it can treat all hair and skin colors equally well. Browse our FAQ questions to learn more.
