Located in New York City, Star Laser NYC specializes in advanced medical and aesthetic laser hair removal services. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how laser hair removal for dark or tan skin tones can effectively treat unwanted body hair with no scarring or adverse pigmentation reactions.
What is Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin?
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular methods of removing unwanted body hair without the discomfort and inconvenience of waxing, shaving, or plucking. Currently the most permanent form of hair removal on the market, this procedure traditionally only works the most effectively on fair skin. But advances in laser technology now make it safe for dark and tan skin tones as well.
At Star Laser NYC, we use the LightSheer® INFINITY™ for laser hair removal on dark and tan skin types. This state-of-the-art system can be customized to the individual, ensuring patient safety and comfort during laser hair removal.
Developed by Lumenis®, the LightSheer® INFINITY™ features:
- Two different wavelengths that are tailored to the patient’s unique skin tone and condition
- Two advanced technologies and versatile use
- Three spot sizes, creating a combination of six different treatment options
- ChillTip™ technology that cools and soothes the skin throughout treatment, significantly reducing post-procedure discomfort.
- A Q-Switched Nd:YAG module to ensure safety for all skin types and clinically proven results
- Speeds that are 75 percent faster than other laser hair removal systems
Is the Hair Gone for Good?
As with other laser hair removal systems, the LightSheer® INFINITY™ works by targeting the pigment in hair follicles, gently heating and disabling them. This prevents future hair regrowth. As hair goes through different stages of growth, it may take multiple sessions in order to successfully achieve desired results.
Is Laser Hair Removal for Dark Skin Safe?
The LightSheer® INFINITY™ is specifically designed to safely and effectively treat dark and tan skin types without the scarring and pigmentation issues that are common with other laser hair removal systems. Our skilled team at Star Laser NYC is highly trained with laser technology, ensuring professional, accurate results with your comfort and safety in mind.
