Hair Removal & Ethnic Skin

Apr 22, 2019 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

For patients with ethnic skin, finding safe and effective laser treatments for hair removal can be a frustrating challenge. That is because darker skin tones must be cautious to avoid complications (i.e. burning or scarring). Laser Hair Removal (LHR) is one of the most sought-after treatments at our Dallas office, especially with summer just around the corner. The proper laser AND the proper laser settings are essential in the efficacy and safety for patients with ethnic skin. Hair grows at different rates, with the laser only targeting actively growing hair. Therefore, one will need several sessions to achieve desired results. The most popular areas treated are underarms, bikini, upper lip and legs for women; and back, chest, and beards for men. If you’re ready to get summer-ready, please contact our Dallas office for a consultation.
