Dark skin types can’t have laser treatments- MYTH
Dark skin types do need to be treated slightly differently from Caucasian skin types due to the high melanin content found in the skin. By utilising Nd:YAG lasers you can penetrate deeper into the skin targeting the hair and not the pigment in the skin, making it safe to treat darker skin types.

IPL/Laser hair removal works best on dark, thick hair – TRUTH
Best results are seen with people who have lighter skin and dark thick hairs. Dark hair is easier to treat as it has a high concentration of pigment on with fairer skin types there is a bigger contrast between hair and skin.
Thinner and Fair hair is trickier to treat but fantastic results can still be achieved with hair that holds pigment.
