What Makes Dark Skin Different in Laser Treatments?

Dark skin has a higher concentration of melanin compared to lighter skin. This increased melanin can affect how laser treatments work, as traditional lasers cannot differentiate between the melanin in the skin and the hair follicle. However, advancements in technology, like the FDA-approved Nd:YAG lasers, have made laser hair removal safe and effective for dark skin by specifically targeting hair follicles without affecting the surrounding skin.

Why Choose Derma Revive for Dark Skin Laser Hair Removal?

At Derma Revive, we specialise in laser hair removal on dark skin using state-of-the-art Candela Gentle Max Pro lasers. These medical-grade, FDA-approved lasers ensure a safe and effective treatment tailored to your unique skin tone and hair type. Our experienced practitioners, with extensive knowledge in treating diverse skin tones, ensure you receive the highest standard of care in our modern, comfortable clinic.

Does Laser Hair Removal work for dark skin?

In the past, laser hair removal devices were incredibly sensitive to both skin colour and melanin, which is why so many people with darker skin tones did not experience great results.

Modern FDA-approved laser hair removal machines are extremely advanced and sophisticated, with the Nd: YAG laser specifically designed to distinguish the subtle differences in skin tone, so they can remove hair regardless of your skin type. You will be able to reduce hair from head to toe in a safe, effective manner.

How do I choose the best Laser Hair Removal machine for dark skin?

We only use the top of the line Candela Gentle Max Pro, which has dual wave lengths. For clients with darker skin tones, we can select the Nd-Yag that matches your skin tone and hair type.

Gentle Max Pro lasers are medical grade and FDA approved, which means they are the same lasers used in hospitals. In clinics that use inferior brands of lasers, you will experience slower results in fewer sessions, so you will save money over clinics that use top-of-the-line lasers.
