Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin

It used to be fairly common knowledge that laser hair removal for dark skin was not possible—even potentially damaging. But thanks to significant advancements in technology, in many cases, that’s often no longer true. Laser and light-based equipment now do so much more than simply target melanin in hair follicles. The newer generation of machines are more highly targeted and controlled, specifically damaging only the melanin in the hair follicle and not the surrounding tissue areas. But any piece of laser equipment, no matter how sophisticated, is only as good as the laser technician operating it. That’s why a superior education regarding laser hair removal for dark skin is so crucial.
