Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to keep your skin clean and smooth by removing unwanted hair. Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. This procedure beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light, which destroys unwanted hair. Clinical studies suggest a minimum of 6 to 8 laser hair removal treatments are required for permanent results depending on the density of your hair and the area being treated. The duration of the treatments vary depending on the area ( 5- 20 min. approximately). A few weeks before and in between laser hair removal treatments, we recommend no WAXING or PLUCKING, only SHAVING is allowed. You should also avoid sun exposure for at least 5 days before and after treatments. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and complications after treatment more likely. Sunblock is recommended to avoid hyperpigmentation
The Candela Gentle Yag is the ideal laser for hair removal for patients with darker skin. It is safe and effective and in my opinion the best laser hair removal system for type 4 or darker skin tones. Laser hair removal is based on the principal of selective photothermolysis with the goal of selectively heating a target chromophore, in this case follicular melanin, with minimal damage to surrounding tissue.2 In darker-skinned individuals (Fitzpatrick skin types IV-VI), there is an increased risk of damaging epidermal melanin with lasers and light sources, as much of the energy can be absorbed by the heavily pigmented basal layer. Depth of transmission of light energy increases steadily as the wavelength is increased from 400 to 1,200 nm.3 Melanin absorption is also lower in longer visible
and infrared wavelengths. By using a laser or light source with a longer wavelength, deeper penetration, and with less melanin absorption, such as 1,064-nm light, less energy is absorbed by epidermal melanin and can be preferentially delivered to deeper dermal structures like the hair follicle. The use of devices with epidermal cooling also helps to limit unwanted epidermal damage.
