ND:YAG Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin

Darker skin types, rejoice! The Candela GentleMax Pro laser hair removal machine is specifically designed to provide safe and effective hair removal for individuals with darker skin tones. Unlike traditional laser hair removal methods that can cause burns and pigmentation issues on darker skin, the GentleMax Pro uses advanced technology to safely target hair follicles without damaging the surrounding skin. Say goodbye to ingrown hairs and uneven skin tone, and hello to silky smooth, hair-free skin with laser hair removal using the Candela GentleMax Pro.

Why is Laser Hair Removal For Dark Skin different?

A few years ago, laser hair removal was not recommended for people with darker skin tones, in particular those with black or darker skin types. As laser energy targets the pigment in the hair follicle, darker skin can be at risk of burning as laser can be attracted to the skin rather than the pigment in the hair. However, lasers now have the longer 1064mm wavelength for darker skin, which can differentiate between skin and hair pigment. This wavelength is known as Nd:YAG, which is what we use at House of Aesthetics

House of Aesthetics Bromley

Guaranteed up to 90% Hair Reduction

During your complimentary consultation at House of Aesthetics in Bromley, your practitioner will tell you how many sessions it will take for the ultimate results, which typically is 6-8 sessions. We can guarantee up to 90% hair reduction, and we don’t we will continue your treatment free of charge.

Complimentary Consultation

Before the treatment, we will need to schedule a free consultation to ask a few questions about yourself to make sure you’re suitable for laser hair removal. 

The next step will be to do a patch test on a small area of skin in order to make sure that our laser does not have any adverse effects. If the patch test is successful, we can then book you in for your laser hair removal treatment at a date and time of your suiting 48 hours later. 

Why choose House of Aesthetics for laser hair removal if you have dark skin?

Since darker skin tones tend to be more sensitive and prone to pigmentation, you need to make sure you choose a reputable clinic with correct and thorough training for all skin types and using the right lasers. During your in-depth consultation, one of our clinically trained practitioners will assess your skin type using the Fitzpatrick scale which will determine the wavelength we use. We’ll then test patch a discrete area 48 hours prior to treatment to ensure your skin is suitable and you are safe to proceed with the treatment.

What’s the best Laser Hair Removal machine for dark skin?

Darker skin needs to be treated slightly differently from lighter skin due to the high melanin content found in the skin. House of Aesthetics use the GentleMax Pro which has the Nd:Yag laser built in which is best for darker skin types. This laser penetrates deeper into the skin picking up only on the hair and not the pigment in the skin, this is vital for darker skin as it allows you to miss the melanin and only hit the hair follicle.

After your first laser hair removal treatment, you will begin to notice shedding of hair.  Regrowth in the area is reduced and any new hairs come out finer and thinner to be treated at the next session.

Laser Hair Removal is suitable for all areas on the face and body. Clients can pick full body laser hair removal or tailor-make packages for any areas they would like. Some popular single areas include face, underarm, and  Hollywood laser hair removal.

Some clients describe the sensation as a rubber band plucking against your skin which will be reduced with each session as there is less hair.
