Suitable and Effective Hair Removal for Darker Skin Types

The Xeo laser used in hair removal uses a wavelength of 1064 wavelength. The advantage of this laser hair removal wavelength is that it allows the hair removal treatment in ALL skin types 1-V, but also includes tanned skin and even darker skin types (many other laser types are unable).

The treatment selectively targets the hair follicles but without implicating thermal damage to the surrounding skin tissues.

Cutera Xeo Nd Yag laser head used for hair removal included darker skin colours

Emitted laser light is absorbed by the colour (chromophore) of the hair -therefore, hair has to be brown or black. White, grey or red-coloured hair is not absorbed by the laser light. This light emitted is converted to heat and damages the bulge and bulb, disabling the hair structure. Our hair has three growing cycles which present at the same time. The length of these hair growth cycles continuously varies for the different body parts, so laser treatment is recommended in courses of treatment.

Anagen (Active) phase of hair growth is when laser hair removal is effective.
Transitional phase last about 2-3 weeks 3% of all hairs are in this phase.
Resting phase - hair falls out in preparation for the development of new hair.

Laser Hair Removal at Our Bolton Clinic - Time Scales

Laser Hair removal treatment at our Bolton clinic is recommended every 3-4 weeks. Between 3-6 treatments can be required to achieve optimal results and the gap between laser hair removal treatments may lengthen due to individual results. We will advise and explain this. You must not wax or pluck during the treatment session, as this removes the target area. However, as no hair is visible to treat, you can shave the area.

Laser Hair Removal - Free Consultations & Test Patch
After your hair removal consultation, a test patch assesses skin response to the hair removal laser. This is a safe practice to avoid any complications. Treatment gel is applied to the area where a laser is removing hair. A cool tip gliding across the surface of the skin is felt by patients. Wearing of goggles during laser treatment is used to protect your eyes from the laser light.

After laser hair removal treatment, some patients may experience a small amount of erythema (redness) or perifollicular oedema. Warm ice packs can be applied if required to cool the skin. We advise you to avoid heat for 24 hours, ie hot tubs, saunas etc Damaged hair follicles can take up to two weeks to fall out.

DARKER SKIN Hair Removal and the Nd-Yag 1064nm

FDA - Approved Medical Laser - The Difference

Our Cutera Xeo is an FDA-approved medical laser. Our laser hair removal clinic in Bolton, the truPulse™ Nd:YAG is used, optimized for very effective hair removal in all skin colours - tanned and darker skin tones included. Darker skin having more melanin is susceptible to burning, so an Nd-Yag is the choice of professionals. IPL lasers in the treatment for hair removal on darker skin are crude and can be traumatic, and is not advised.

The safest laser hair removal laser for patients with darker skin types is a 1064nm Nd:Yag laser. It is particularly suited for patients with a darker skin type.

Darker Skin /Tanned Hair Removal
Laser hair removal targets melanin (pigmented cells) in hairs but can also affect the melanin cells in the skin; this may lead to burns and possible scarring. All Laser machines use wavelengths (various) of energy heating and distorting the hair follicle while limiting the damage to the surface of the skin - Our Laser hair removal clinic in Bolton uses Nd Yag 1040nm Lasers. This is the ideal laser for darker skin hair removal - as proven in clinical hair removal trials. The great advantage of this type of Nd Yag 1040 laser in the treatment of Skin Types 4 - 6 (Asian and darker skin) is the laser identifies differences in the concentration of melanin in the skin and hair.

Tanned Darker Skins ? IPL-Diode-1064 Nd:Yag ???
Some clinics will use lasers with a wavelength of 810nm diode to remove hair from lighter skins, but these are NOT ideally the first choice for DARKER SKIN Always do your homework - You should ask any salon or clinic to confirm laser type they use and always ask for a laser hair removal consultation. Asking how long and what qualifications experience the operator has. Note the name of the machine and check that it is a laser and is the specific type of laser used suitable for your type of skin/colour and hair removal. Safety - Ask for a patch test to be done before any laser treatment.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is NOT suitable for dark skin - it's unsafe - the energy emissions are far less controllable. That is why a diode or, better still, an Nd-Yag machine should always be the choice..
