Laser Hair Removal
for Darker Skin Tones

St Louis Laser Hair Removal for dark skin tones

For years, darker skin tones have been unable to safely get laser hair removal. Thanks to top of the line lasers, darker skin tones are able to receive laser hair removal. Most lasers target hair that is contrast to the skin; and when done on darker skin tones were a waste of time, money and even burned the skin. Luckily now we don't have to worry about that because of our top of the line laser. 

Which laser do you use for Laser Hair Removal?

We use the Gentlemax Pro Laser which combines two lasers: GentleLase Pro (lighter skin tones I-III), and Nd: YAG Laser (darker skin tones IV-VI) at our Medical Spa. We use this laser because it does every skin tone on the Fitzpatrick Scale (from I-VI). The Gentlemax Pro is the golden standard of lasers, and has a cryogen that sprays to make the treatment almost painless.

What is the Fitzpatrick Scale?

The Fitzpatrick scale was developed in 1975. It was made to see how much sun exposure your skin can handle, and to predict your skin pigment's risk of sun damage and cancer. It goes from lightest to darkest (I-VI). Our laser automatically detects your skin type and that prevents burning, and pain that are normal for lesser lasers. Below is a graphic of the Fitzpatrick scale including celebrities that are around that skin type.

How many treatments does it take?

Usually it take 6-8 treatments to fully go away. The reason it take more than one is because the hair growth cycle is in four stages. And you can only go one stage at a time, going deeper until you reach the bottom. Here's a great explanation of the process.

Can LHR help with Ingrown Hairs and Acne?

A huge added benefit is that our laser also helps with ingrown hairs and acne. Our laser gives us the ability to fade acne scarring and discoloration, making it a dual acne treatment. How awesome is that!
