What is the best laser for hair removal on dark skin types?


The best laser for dark skin types is the Nd:YAG (long pulse) laser. We have a few of these lasers in our clinic, which are effective for long term hair reduction on darker skin types, as they have a lesser attraction to melanin (skin pigment) than other hair removal lasers.
