Avante Laser & MediSpa is one of the few clinics that provide FDA cleared Laser Hair Removal using the Nd:YAG wavelength for darker skin tones. We are proud and honored to be able to service everyone, with no exceptions!

Dark Skin & Laser Hair Removal Q & A

What is the difference between laser hair removal for dark skin and fair skin?

The color of the skin depends on the amount of melanin or pigment in the skin. Since the melanin absorbs the laser in the hair follicles, only long-pulse ND: Yag lasers may get used to dark-skinned hair removal. Dark skin hair removal lasers or Long pulse ND: Yag lasers selectively target the hair follicles’ pigments while protecting the surrounding skin.

Fifteen years ago, Avante used Nd: YAG laser to implement the most advanced laser technology for customers with darker skin. The YAG laser provides a deeper wavelength (1064 nm), which will not be attracted to the skin but will bypass the skin and directly enter the unwanted hair. The process is painless, and the effect is excellent.

For customers with facial or body hair growth, lasers can change their lives. So don’t wait any longer.

Is laser hair removal painful?

Popular hair removal procedures, such as wax and electrolysis, can be very painful. Most people find that laser surgery is much more comfortable. The customer describes the feeling of the laser as if a rubber band clings to the skin. To further improve customer comfort, we use laser systems equipped with the latest cooling equipment. Sub-zero cooling can provide extra comfort and protection during surgery.
