If you have dark skin, you may think that laser hair removal is just not right for you. You may have heard that individuals in Oklahoma City who have light skin and dark hair are typically the best candidates for this treatment. This is usually the case. However, laser hair removal treatments are constantly advancing. A variety of lasers are being used to help individuals who have dark skin get rid of unwanted hair.
If you live in the Oklahoma City area and you are interested in laser hair removal, we warmly invite you to contact us. We will set up a consultation for you where you can meet with one of our laser hair removal experts, who will closely examine your skin and ask about the expectations you have for the treatment. After this consultation, you will have a good idea of what this treatment can actually do for you. You will likely be surprised to learn that laser hair removal is progressing to a point where it can be used for individuals who have different skin tones and hair types. However, it is important to keep in mind that the results will vary depending on multiple factors.
Something that is true of laser hair removal for individuals with light skin or with dark skin is that they will need multiple sessions at our office in Oklahoma City. This does not necessarily have anything to do with a person’s skin tone. It has more to do with the way the human body grows hair. Hair growth goes through cycles. At any given time, only about 20 percent or so of the hair on your body is going through an active growth cycle. So you can see why it is important for individuals to have this treatment performed multiple times in order to treat as many active hair follicles as possible.
Whether you have dark skin or lighter skin, we cannot promise that you will have permanent hair removal. But we can promise that you will see a reduction in the amount of hair that grows. Whatever hair growth you do have in the future will be much thinner and maybe even lighter.
