The ND YAG Laser Hair Removal for Indian and Dark Skin
Laser hair removal hasn’t always been safe for Indian or dark skins. Years ago lasers were not able to penetrate deep into the skin and destroy the skin follicle, but with the advancement of technology lasers using the ND YAG technology has reversed this situation.
The ND YAG laser on dark skin is a lot safer than say an IPL laser because the laser goes directly to the root of the hair destroying it rather than a scatter approach like the IPL or previous lasers. The result is a softer and finer growth of hair.
The ND YAG Laser is effective for the removal of:
- Body hair
- Facial hair
- Bushy hair
laser hair removal should be approached with caution due to the skin's high melanin composition. The laser would be diverted to the melanin rather than the hair follicles, thus occasioning undesirable side effects on the patients. However, that is why we recommend the ND YAG laser because it has the following benefits:
- Does not react with any amount of melanin in the skin
- It is suitable for both men and women
- Reduces ingrown hair
- It is faster and posts good results
- It is largely painless, save for a little initial discomfort
