There is just one reason why anyone would undergo a laser hair removal procedure, to remove unwanted hair! It can be used to treat various parts of the body that include arms, legs, armpits, chin, upper lip, and bikini line. The treatment is not limited to these areas and can be used on any part of the body with unwanted hair, except the eyelids and the surrounding area. Additionally, it cannot be used on skin with a tattoo on it.
Did you know the success of laser hair removal is influenced by the skin type and the hair colour? As per the basic principle, only the pigment of the hair should absorb the light and not the pigment of the skin. The laser should target only the hair and not damage the skin. And hence, the best outcome is received where there is a contrast between skin and hair colour, such as the combination of light skin and dark hair.
Skin damage is a risk that is most often a result of little contrast between skin and hair colour. Though technology has made improvements, and laser hair removal caters to dark skin, it is less effective on white, blond, drey, and red hair colour as they don't absorb light well.
