Is it safe for darker skin?

We published a series of articles to help you navigate the world of Laser Hair Removal.

Laser hair removal with ND: YAG Laser is FDA cleared and safe for darker skin tones and effective on all skin types! All our locations equipped with ALEX and YAG lasers!

Laser hair removal can be safe for dark skin when performed by a professional using a YAG laser that is specifically designed and safe for dark skin. The 1064 nm wavelength, mainly called the Nd:YAG wavelength, is selectively absorbed by the deeper levels of the dermis—bypassing the skin’s surface and solely targeting deeper melanin at the hair follicle level. Since Nd:YAG essentially overlooks the epidermis, Karavolas notes this wavelength as a safe choice for dark skin. All LaerHere locations have ALEX and YAG laser hair removal machines to treat all skin types.
Before undergoing laser hair removal, it’s important to discuss your skin type, medical history, and expectations with a professional to determine if it’s a safe and appropriate hair removal option for you.
