Laser hair removal is a growing trend in both men and women’s beauty regimes. Since 1996, there have been many advancements in laser hair removal which use melanin as a key chromophore. All the best devices on the market can be used by patients with light skin ( Phototypes I-IV) and achieve hair reduction up to 75%. Laser hair removal machines can also be used to remove dark and coarse hair, and have been proven to be effective for these types of hair. This makes it an excellent way to get rid of unwanted hair on many parts of your body.
There are four different methods for laser hair removal. They include Bacterial treatment, Infrared Light Therapy, Diode Treatment, and Colorless Treatment. With most of the newer equipment, it’s important to first look into the skin tone of the area that you want treatments done on. Darker skin tones will be able to get most treatments done without too much difficulty, while lighter skin tones will struggle to get many areas. This is due to the difference in absorption of the colorant as well as the strength of the light used. These four skin tones fall into four levels of melanin.
