Laser Hair Removal on African American Skin

Enhancing Your Beauty within the cities of San Diego, Carlsbad, Del Mar & nearby areas of California


Laser hair removal may be difficult to achieve on patients of African American descent. The reason being is that the laser targets the melanin, or the pigment in the skin. African American patients have more melanin in the epidermis then others   In order to achieve the  best possible results without compromising the safety of the patient, the laser hair removal specialist must select lower settings of the laser. The patient will still experience significant hair reduction, however it may take more treatments then average.
