Thanks to several advances in hair removal techniques, there are now more effective options than ever. But some hair removal techniques are better than others for certain skin types. At Dr. Park Avenue, we’re proud to offer Nd:YAG, an extremely effective laser hair removal treatment method for dark skin.
Nd:YAG: How It Works
The Nd:YAG laser is known by a few brand names. By far, this laser is the preferred laser hair removal method for dark skin. It works so well because it has a weaker melanin absorption rate than other lasers.
Melanin absorption refers to the rate at which the laser’s heat and light are absorbed by the melanin. Thanks to its particularly long wavelengths, it can penetrate beyond the melanin in your skin and reach the melanin in your hair. This laser’s wavelength also allows it to destroy hair at the papilla, or bulbous structure found at the hair follicle’s base.
What to Expect
Results vary, but you should see hairs lessen in days to weeks. You could expect to see permanent results after your series of treatment sessions. These will be spaced a set amount of time apart. A significant reduction in hair growth is common. For the best results, you may want to schedule a maintenance treatment annually for a couple years following your initial treatments. The larger the treatment area, the longer treatment will take.
Best Laser Hair Removal Option for Darker Skin
The Nd:YAG option is one of the most time-efficient methods on the market. This is due to a large spot size and high repetition rate. This laser is suitable for a great variety of skin tones, including people with moderately dark skin.
