Permanent Laser Hair Reduction
What Is Permanent Laser Hair Reduction
And What Can It Do For Me?
Laser for hair reduction is attracted to the hairs melanin pigment and is absorbed by the hair follicle causing the root of the hair to be instantly vaporized. Since the pigment in the hair is what attracts the laser, darker hair absorbs the laser more effectively. Patients with dark hair and fair skin are ideal candidates for laser hair removal for this reason.
Patients with dark skin require treatment with a special type of laser that detects the hair against their skin. Here at Chrysalis, we have two highly effective laser platforms – a 710nm Alexandrite laser and a 1550 nm ND Yag laser to treat all skin tones safely.
