Will Laser Hair Removal Work on My Skin Tone & Hair Colour?
When it comes to hair removal, there are plenty of at-home options – like hair removal creams, waxing, and shaving – but there is a better solution. WellSprings Medical Spa offers Laser Hair Removal in Richmond Hill and this service is an extremely popular option because of its long-lasting results! If you are considering this treatment as a hair removal option, let us review with you how this treatment works on different skin tones and hair colours.
Laser Hair Removal Targets Pigment in the Hair Follicle
The technology and process behind laser hair removal are quite simple. Essentially, the laser beam from the hair removal device targets the hair follicles’ pigment. This means it may work for some individuals but not others.
Laser Hair Removal Will Work For…
Typically, the best basis for this treatment to work is on a client who has a skin tone that is lighter than their hair pigment colour. Let’s review below who laser hair removal might work for:
- Black Hair | Pale, Ivory, Beige, or Light Brown Skin
- Dark Brown Hair | Pale, Ivory, Beige, or Light Brown Skin
- Brown Hair | Pale, Ivory, Beige, or Light Brown Skin
- Light Brown Hair | Pale, Ivory, Beige, or Light Brown Skin
Laser Hair Removal Won’t Work For…
When the skin is darker than the hair colours pigment, the laser has difficulty finding the hair follicle resulting in an ineffective treatment. This means that certain skin tones and hair colours aren’t right for this treatment. Let’s review below who laser hair removal might not work for:
- Black Hair | Brown or Dark Brown Skin
- Dark Brown Hair | Brown or Dark Brown Skin
- Brown Hair | Brown or Dark Brown Skin
- Light Brown Hair | Brown or Dark Brown Skin
- Red Hair | Pale, Ivory, Beige, Light Brown, Brown, and Dark Brown Skin
