What’s the Deal? I’ve Been Told I’m Not a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal in the Past!

If you’ve been told you’re not a good candidate for laser hair removal (LHR)  in the past, fear not! There’s laser hair removal for any and all skin types. Light or dark skin, there’s an option for you. With the development of new wavelength technology, current laser hair removal treatments work just as well on darker skin types without damaging the skin.

Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal treatment in the past worked best on those with light skin and dark hair. When it debuted in 1998, LHR was not ideal for people with dark skin and dark hair, as the lasers couldn’t distinguish between the hair follicle and skin cells. However, new technology has enabled the ability to effectively remove hair on individuals with darker skin types.

So now, nearly any adult wishing to finally get rid of unwanted hair long term is an ideal candidate for LHR, even those with dark hair and dark skin. The best laser hair removal candidates have dark, coarse hair with a contrast between skin and hair color.
