Laser hair removal is no longer limited for people who are in show business. There are many people we found around us who are really concerned about unnecessary and abnormal growth of facial hair or in other body parts. There could be several reasons for such growth such as hormonal imbalance, medicinal side-effects, genetic etc. to mention a few. We hope before opting for laser hair removal you have done a proper diagnosis to know the reason behind. In Oklahoma City, there is a place for laser hair removal but while stepping into a laser spa, you have to have a complete idea on it.

Dark Hair Boon

People with dark hair can easily opt for this treatment. Dark hair contains a level of brown pigment or melanin that responds better to laser than grey, red or blonde hair. It is really important to keep some hair at the body part present to check whether it is suitable for the treatment or not at the day. This treatment process will work better when the treatment area is full of brown or black thick hair as it is full of melanin and laser can easily target it and work better.

Skin Type Is Not a Concern

Your skin type really does not matter for a laser treatment but a darker skin shade will need more sessions than a pale skin tone. A darker skin absorbs melanin and will cause pigmentation and darken it when really high energy is used. That is why darker hair needs more sessions.

No Tan

While opting for laser hair removal the skin should be free of tan, only then this treatment will go smoothly ensuring safety and effectiveness. When we get tan it produces melanin and it is a process to protect DNA structures underneath the skin. The laser cannot differentiate between natural melanin and stimulated melanin. It acts the same way with both of it. It heats up the two structures the same way and will damage the fragile skin structure. The deepest layer of the skin is melanocyte where hair is located. A treatment that activates melanocytes will stimulate the pigment and bring it to the skin surface making it dark. It may even heat up water content of the skin causing blisters.

Before starting your laser hair removal process, the laser spas in Oklahoma City will do a patch test to secure that your skin can take it normally. Sensitive skin also can get laser hair removal but in that case, there should be more tests and precautions.
