Which laser hair removal is suitable for Indian Skin Tone?

Introduction

Some laser hair removal methods work well on lighter skin tones, but can be dangerous for those with darker skin.

Laser hair removal is a newer technology that uses lasers to remove hair. There are many different laser hair removal methods available, but which one is best for darker skin? Some laser hair removal methods work well on lighter skin tones, but can be dangerous for those with darker skin. Here is a look at what’s the most effective methods for laser hair removal for darker skin types.

Indian skin tones typically range from lighter olive to darker shades. Because of this reason, it is important to choose the right laser for Indian skin tones. The most suitable types of lasers would be Diode laser and Nd:YAG lasers.

The diode laser is good at treating thicker, coarser hair compared to the Nd:YAG. Most diode lasers are less painful because they have an instant cooling function that protects the skin from overheating. However, the Nd:YAG is the safest option for Indian patients because it can bypass the melanin in your skin.

The Nd:YAG works at a higher wavelength than other lasers so it can pass through the epidermis and target the follicle directly. Since it no longer targets the color, the Nd:YAG is great at targeting resistant hairs and treating darker-skinned patients.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a process where hair is removed from the body using a laser. The laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle. This damages the follicle and prevents the hair from growing back. Laser hair removal is a popular treatment for removing unwanted hair. It is effective, safe, and relatively affordable.

Using wrong type of laser for darker skin can be serious consequences

Using the wrong type of laser can have negative side effects and consequences. You might get unintended burns, scarring or permanent skin pigmentation or discoloration

If you have darker skin, you will need to choose the right laser hair removal. What makes laser hair removal tricky for dark skin lies with the fact that laser mainly targets the melanin (or pigment) in your skin besides the hair follicle itself. Using the wrong type of laser can have negative side effects and consequences. You might get unintended burns, scarring or permanent skin pigmentation or discoloration – which can affect you for a very long time.


How to pick the right laser hair removal for darker skin?

If you have darker skin, you will need to choose a laser with 1064nm long-pulse laser. The 1064nm laser is a non-ablative laser — this means that the laser does not remove the top layer of the skin. Instead, the laser targets the underlying skin tissue beneath the top layer of the skin to encourage the skin to naturally produce more collagen.

Wellaholic’s SHR combines 755nm, 808nm and 1064nm laser wavelengths for all skin tones

Wellaholic’s SHR or Super Hair Removal technology is a newer technology as compared to IPL. Developed by Alma Lasers, SHR combines 755nm, 808nm and 1064nm laser wavelengths to target all skin types. In addition, simultaneous contact cooling prevents burns and allows for a more comfortable treatment. This is ideal for skin and hair of all types and causes minimal irritation to the skin. Wellaholic’s SHR Prestige plan allows you hair reduction treatments on all body parts.

At Wellaholic, we administer as many SHR shots as needed for the most effective hair removal. You only pay a single price and relax while our experienced consultants do their magic to target hair follicles to help you achieve smooth skin. Research shows that permanent hair reduction is better achieved with a slower by longer process of heating, which makes SHR hair removal a more preferred choice than IPL.
